REPORT: Top State Department official arrives to testify in impeachment probe
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
A senior State Department official arrived in the Capitol on Wednesday to testify in the Democrats’ impeachment investigation, bucking a White House that has vowed to offer no cooperation in the fast-moving inquiry.
David Hale, the under secretary of State for political affairs, is expected to provide insights into the campaign by President Trump and some of his allies to remove Marie Yovanovitch from her post as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine — a move that infuriated many department veterans, who have expressed concerns that the agency’s top brass did too little to protect a career diplomat from White House interference.
The article goes on to state the following:
Hale arrived in the Capitol shortly before the start of Wednesday’s 9 a.m. deposition in the Capitol basement, where the three committees leading the impeachment investigation — Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs — have been conducting their closed-door interviews.
Third highest ranking State dept official David Hale arrived for his deposition in the impeachment inquiry. Six other scheduled depos this week, Hale is the 1st to show up
