Catherine Croft, a specialist on Ukraine at the State Department, arrives for a closed-door deposition in the House impeachment inquiry.

The House has released the testimony of Catherine Croft, a Ukraine specialist with the State Department. The transcript is one of a number released ahead of the first public hearings of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Croft, who worked on the National Security Council, testified that lobbyist Robert Livingston called her multiple times to say that then-Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch should be fired. Yovanovitch, who was recalled from her post in the spring, told House investigators that Trump himself was behind a campaign to remove her.
