Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, questioned Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, in a public hearing as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Stewart asked Yovanovitch whether she had any information on whether the president had accepted any bribes. She said no. When asked if she had any evidence of any criminal activity that the president has been involved with, Yovanovitch said no.

Stewart described the impeachment hearings as "nonsense" and "unfair."

"I think that public support for impeachment is actually going to be less when these hearings are over than it is when the hearings began," Stewart said. 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.
