Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said it was “unfortunate” that the representatives in the House would have to “engage in the Democrats’ day-long TV spectacles instead of solving the problems we were all sent to Washington to address.” Nunes spoke ahead of testimony from Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, on Nov. 15, the second day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The impeachment probe centers around a July phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Yovanovitch has testified that she was forced out of her position after Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, engineered a smear campaign against her.
