Fiona Hill, the former National Security Council senior director for Europe and Russia, and David Holmes, the political affairs counselor at the U.S. embassy in Kiev, Ukraine, will testify Thursday in the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump.

Hill told lawmakers in closed-door testimony last month that then-National Security Adviser John Bolton expressed concerns that the Trump administration was trying to pressure Ukrainian officials.

Holmes testified behind closed doors that while he was at a restaurant, he overheard Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, speaking to Trump over the phone about “investigations.” The call came on July 26, a day after Trump asked Ukraine’s president to investigate 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
