If people like Lt. Colonal Vindman and Marie Yovanovitch can risk their jobs & reputations to come forward and do the right thing, then I have one thing to say to my Republican colleagues: do your damn job and uphold the Constitution.
BREAKING: JW announced it has filed a FOIA lawsuit against the State Dept. seeking docs related to a reported “untouchables list” given in late 2016 by former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch to Ukraine Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko (1/3).
@NorahODonnell : "In the 2 days before Pres. Trump forced out Marie Yovanovitch, Rudy Giuliani was on the phone with WH more than a dozen times...it doesn't prove he was talking about Yovanovitch, but phone records suggest a ramped up effort that preceded withholding of aid."
Some of the people I'm thankful for this year: Lt Col Alexander VindmanMarie Yovanovitch Fiona Hill George Kent Jennifer Williams Bill Taylor Nancy Pelosi Adam Schiff Their commitment to speaking truth and public service gives me hope for our future.
There was a time when the American diplomatic corps was an old boys club. Watching Marie Yovanovitch and Fiona Hill, I am so thankful that is no longer the case. These two women embody the best ideals of the nation they have served.
from Sally Yates to Fiona Hill to Marie Yovanovitch, Trump scandals have repeatedly showcased strong, principled women in government
Marie Yovanovitch'>Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch is a stalwart anti-corruption advocate, dedicated to the rule of law. That made her an obstacle. So Trump and his allies pushed her out, and set the stage for what was to come.
My Republican colleagues would have the American public believe that Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch's testimony is not relevant to our impeachment inquiry. One person who thought she was relevant? President Trump, who brought her up in his July 25 call with Zelensky.
There are some moments that are destined to play in future documentaries. Marie Yovanovitch walking out of the hearing room to applause seems to be one of them.
