Washington — The House has released the testimony of State Department official George Kent, who testified before the joint House committees conducting the impeachment inquiry on October 15.

Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs, is also slated to testify on the first day of open hearings in the impeachment inquiry on Wednesday, along with William Taylor, the chargé d'affaires at the U.S. embassy in Kiev.

In emails included in a packet of documents given to Congress by the State Department's inspector general in early October, Kent expressed concerns about the campaign to discredit Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. In March, he called the emerging effort a "fake news driven smear out of Ukraine" and a "classic disinformation operation."

2. I thought we are spelling

The name of the city differently now-

Ukraine wants us to spell it Kyiv, not Kiev.

CBS didn’t get the message?
