Read George Kent's opening statement in the impeachment hearing
Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent is testifying Wednesday in the House's first public impeachment hearing.
Why it matters: In his opening statement, Kent outlined the main themes he went over in his 10-hour closed-door deposition. Among other things, Kent testified that he was alarmed by Rudy Giuliani's campaign to oust former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch and attempts to "gin up politically-motivated investigations."
