Donald Trump is the first U.S. president to be impeached twice. In 2021, he was impeached for inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection in the attack on the U.S. Capitol. In 2020, he was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress related to a phone call made to the president of Ukraine.

Thursday's hearings were scheduled to start at 9 a.m. with testimony from Fiona Hill, a former Russia specialist on the National Security Council, and David Holmes, a State Department aide.

Wednesday's hearings included testimony Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Laura Cooper, a Defense Department deputy assistant secretary, and the State Department undersecretary for political affairs, David Hale.

Sondland's testimony, especially, was hotly watched. He was a former top donor to Trump's inaugural committee and amended his closed-door testimony to say he personally told a Zelenskiy aide that American aide was linked to investigations.
