Yovanovitch Testifies In Impeachment Hearing Of Being ‘Kneecapped;’ Trump Says Everywhere She Worked ‘Turned Bad’

Former ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch decided to do a little bit of finger pointing during her testimony during Friday’s impeachment hearings, targeting Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and discussing her sudden removal from her diplomatic post.

President Trump returned fire and stated that every place Yovanovitch worked “turned bad.”

During her appearance, Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, relayed her story of being suddenly recalled by Trump in May, saying she believes Giuliani played a key role in telling people she was not sufficiently supportive of the president.

“I do not understand Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me, nor can I offer an opinion on whether he believed the allegations he spread about me,” Yovanovitch said.

“If our chief representative is kneecapped, it limits our effectiveness to safeguard the vital national security interests of the United States,” Yovanovitch said.

After the hearing started, Trump began attacking her, tweeting, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.” He added, “It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.”

As the impeachment hearing kicked off on Friday, the White House released a new transcript of the president’s initial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The transcript showed the president agreeing to meet with Zelensky — without any sort of preconditions — in the first official phone call between the two world leaders.

Devin Nunes, ranking member of the Intelligence Committee read the whole letter during his opening statement. A separate call that happened between Trump and Zelensky is what started the impeachment inquiry, and the GOP is saying this new transcript helps solidify Trump’s argument that he didn’t do anything wrong in his conversation with the Ukrainian president-elect.

Yovanovitch’s removal from her post as the ambassador to Ukraine is one of the central events being discussed during the impeachment proceedings.

“These events should concern everyone in this room,” Yovanovitch remarked in her opening statement. “Shady interests the world over have learned how little it takes to remove an American ambassador who does not give them what they want.”

Marco Rubio Gets Confronted By MSNBC Host Over Saying Some Journalists ‘Giddy’ Over COVID-19

Sen. Marco Rubio has found himself in the hot seat with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle after making the comment that some journalists are thrilled over the spread of the coronavirus, a statement he defended. Ruhle asked Rubio to explain the tweet which he made earlier in the week, noting a portion where he said: “Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China…Beyond being grotesque, it’s bad journalism.” https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/1244279416819273729 Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “I need to ask you this, because I’m a journalist,” Ruhle said. “We’re not just some personalities. You called out journalism. And I need to understand why on earth you did this.” Rubio said some journalists are “doing exactly what I said.” “Well, because there are some journalists that were doing exactly what I said,” the Florida Republican responded. “I read reports about how some Republicans are doing this, or some members of Congress are doing that. I don’t know what other word to describe who’s doing something and who isn’t.” Rubio gave a few examples of certain situations where he believes that journalists expressed happiness in reporting on coronavirus figures and noted that he said “some” not all journalists were behaving this way. https://twitter.com/TPMLiveWire/status/1246081048846401536 Rubio found support among many on the right, including Caleb Hull who tweeted: https://twitter.com/CalebJHull/status/1244311946817671173 The bottom line is, there are probably some journalists who are excited by the prospects that this virus is providing for the progressive movement. After all, Democrats are using this situation to try and pass a bunch of pet projects they want made law through inside these coronavirus relief packages, so is it so far fetched to think liberal journalists might think the same way? Regardless, here’s to hoping this all goes away sooner rather…
