The testimony from these eight officials will come after three others are scheduled to appear this week, bringing the total number of officials set to testify publicly to 11, out of 15 witnesses who have testified behind closed doors.

Both raised concerns about an apparent effort by President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and other U.S. diplomats to pressure Ukraine to announce investigations into the president's political rivals.
