Two State Department officials with expertise on Ukraine are scheduled to appear on Wednesday before lawmakers leading the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.
Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson are both scheduled to appear Wednesday morning before the House Oversight, Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees. Their attorney’s opening statements indicate that both were served with subpoenas to testify.
Both worked under former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who has emerged as a key witness in the impeachment investigation.
Croft’s background includes work on Ukraine for both the State Department and the National Security Council. Similarly, Anderson’s resume includes working at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi applauded the previous witnesses in a Wednesday morning tweet.
“We’ve learned so much about Trump’s months-long campaign to pressure Ukraine because military veterans & his own national security aides stood up to tell the truth,” she wrote.
She also called for Republicans to “do the same” as the witnesses.
“They put their country ahead of everything else. It’s not too late for Republicans in Congress to do the same,” she continued.
