USA TODAY US Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

THURS­DAY

Three House com­mit­tees – For­eign Af­fairs, In­tel­li­gence and Over­sight – have sched­uled a de­po­si­tion with Lev Par­nas, a Ukraini­an­born busi­ness­man who helped in­tro­duce Rudy Giu­liani, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s per­sonal at­tor­ney, to the Ukrainian prose­cu­tor who sought to pro­vide dirt on for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Joe Bi­den, a 2020 pres­i­den­tial con­tender.

FRI­DAY

The com­mit­tees have sched­uled a de­po­si­tion with Marie Yo­vanovitch, a ca­reer diplo­mat and the for­mer U.S. am­bas­sador to Ukraine. She was pulled from her post in May af­ter work­ing years un­der Repub­li­can and Demo­cratic ad­min­is­tra­tions. Trump called Yo­vanovitch “bad news” in his July phone call with Ukraine Pres­i­dent Volodymyr Ze­len­sky, which fol­lowed re­ports in con­ser­va­tive me­dia that Yo­vanovitch was dis­loyal to Trump. The pan­els are also set to de­pose Igor Fru­man, a Ukraini­an­born busi­ness part­ner of Par­nas, the busi­ness­man who helped Giu­liani in his ef­forts in Ukraine.
