Democrats announce eight more witnesses for public hearings

Washington: US Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday unveiled a list of eight more witnesses who will testify in open hearings as part of the impeachment investigation into President Trump.
Lawmakers have already heard from all eight in closed-door hearings over the course of the investigation, which Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, launched in September.
Next Tuesday, the House Intelligence Committee will hear from Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, and Alexander Vindman, an army lieutenant colonel and member of the National Security Council. Later that afternoon, Kurt Volker, who was US special envoy to Ukraine until September, and White House Russia specialist Tim Morrison, will testify.
American ambassador to the European Union and Gordon Sondland, who has already delivered one of the most damning testimonies of the affair, will testify again next Wednesday.
On Wednesday afternoon, Laura Cooper, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian Affairs, and David Hale, the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, will appear before the committee.
Then Fiona Hill, the former National Security Council director for Europe and Russia, will appear Thursday morning. (AFP)
