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 Yovanovitch'>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."
Let’s judge Trump’s conduct by his words and deeds: Yovanovitch'>Recalls Ambassador Yovanovitch, after she’s falsely smeared. PraisesUkraine’s corrupt former prosecutor. Asks Ukraine to investigate his rival. Holds up aid until it does. That’s not anti-corruption. Just corruption.
“He made a mistake,” @NancyPelosi says on Trump's tweet about Yovanovitch during her testimony. “I think part of it is his own insecurity as an impostor...he knows full well he's in that office way over his head. And so he has to diminish everyone else.”
Amb. Yovanovitch is a dedicated American diplomat who was forced from her position after a vicious smear campaign orchestrated by the president’s allies. Today, we’re releasing her transcript, and that of another committed public servant, Amb. McKinley.
My Republican colleagues would have the American public believe that Ambassador MarieYovanovitch'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.
@RepStefanik : "I just want to get it on record. In terms of defensive lethal aid, which you were an advocate for, that was NOT provided by President Obama. It was provided by President Trump." Yovanovitch: "That's correct."
