The second day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump is under way.
Ex-US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch says she was abruptly recalled from her post after “concerted effort against her” was led by Trump
She told lawmakers “shady interests the world over have learned how little it takes to remove an American ambassador”.
She is the third witness to publicly testify in the Democratic impeachment effort to oust Trump

Yovanovitch says the claim – made by some Republicans – that she disseminated a “Do Not Prosecute” list was “a fabrication”.
She would never take any step to help any US political campaign, as that is not the role of a foreign service diplomat, she said.
“I have never met Hunter Biden. Nor have I had any direct or indirect conversations with him,” she added.
Trump’s effort to have Ukraine investigate Hunter Biden, who worked for a Ukrainian energy firm, is at the centre of the Democrats abuse of power inquiry.
