During Moving Testimony, Ousted Diplomat Gets Twitter Intimidation from Trump – Day That Was | MSNBC

 

Former Ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch gave poised, unconstrained testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee Friday. She described how a smear campaign seemingly orchestrated by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani affected her career, as well as American national security interests. While describing how she felt “threatened” by the president’s language about her on the July 25 phone call, Trump, in real-time tweeted more attacks against her.

  3. I Love you U.S!! Stay strong My GOOD American sisters and brothers!

    Big Hug from Finland.

    • Let’s hope Trump doesn’t try and buy Finland too.

    • Thank you,SuSSiSu! We love you back! It’s a crazy making time over here so we need your wishes for strength. It’s great to know we have friends in Finland who are paying attention & care about us. Raise a glass to Victory in 2020! I’m thinking about voting for my dog, ha, ha. He’s a good guy. He never lies. He likes everyone unless they get aggressive. I believe world leaders would prefer working with him than who they have now. Pretty sure he would consider Putin & other despots a danger & deal with them accordingly. Our Allies would find him easier & more sensible than our guy who seems to want to alienate our friends. Just joking, of course, but anyone over this fool! Thanks again for caring! ✌😘

    • Thank you so much for your support! We have to make this country great again, like was before the devil took over our great nation! Love you back!

    • SISU SUOMI !! 🇫🇮

    • Thank you Finland 🇫🇮 please pray for us we need it more than ever

      After having Obama who is well respected and highly educated to a Circus sideshow clown makes a lot of us sick

  4. The standing ovation as this strong, proud American walked with her head held high, brought back some of my pride in Washington. She deserves so much respect and deserves to be treated with dignity.

      Jeni Gordon she deserves none of that.

    • Are you ok? She said that she HAS NO EVIDENCE OF BRIBERY OR ANY OTHER CRIMINAL ACT!!! HELLOOOOOOO??? She wasn’t on board with the President’s agenda which is his RIGHT AS HEAD OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH!! THE PRESIDENT CAN FIRE ANYONE.JUST LIKE YOUR BOSS.

    • The State Department is a vital part of American Democracy ,why do you think the REPUBLICANS want to destroy it !!?
      They’ve been laying the groundwork for throwing the department under the bus since Obama announced his candidatecy back when .
      Think The Mob but with nukes and you get the idea !! 😬🇺🇸

      @Aaron Right on! I’m with you. Destroying a person’s rep for ill-gotten gains is terrible.

  5. I believe all of this has happened because Russia is using our clown of a President as a puppet to gain access to drilling rights in Ukraine

  6. Yes, Trump as the right to speak. He would be better off maintaining his right to stay silent.

  7. We have the right person leading this inquiry.

    The standing ovation she got must have made Republicans heads explode

    • @B Chin – I had intended to ignore your drivel but you said two things that are so revealing I just have to point them out:

      1) You don’t care if the most important witness so far is a liar.
      2) You only accept information from hard-left opinion mongerers like MSNBC.

      It’s no wonder that you don’t understand what’s going on and are fixated on Yovanovitch’s feelings.

      And with that, I really am done with you. I mean, surely even you can’t sink any lower.

    • @Crystal Giddens I hear what you’re saying, there was an investigation they found nothing that Hunter or Joe were guilty of anything! They did find Burisma too men were tainted! To get the DA crook out of office was not Joe’s decision it was the United Nations & the US National security heads of State! Everyone has admitted it wasn’t a good look. I feel the same way!

      @Bj Lucas A Ukrainian official with strong ties to Zlochevsky admitted in October the *only reason that Hunter Biden secured the appointment was to “protect” the company from foreign scrutiny.* The claim has credence given that at the time Joe Biden, as the sitting vice president, was tasked with leading the Obama administration’s policy towards Ukraine…

    • Crystal Giddens | November 19, 2019 at 6:21 AM | Reply

      @Bj Lucas Yovanovitch’s admission that Shokin was looking for a “hook” with which to prosecute Burisma and Zlocvesky undermines a central argument Joe Biden has made to defend his conduct. Since the story became central to the impeachment inquiry, the former vice president and his allies have tried to argue that Shokin’s investigation into Burisma was dormant at the time of his firing and therefore his ouster actually improved the chances that the company would face stricter scrutiny.

      @Bj Lucas Ukrainian Prosecutor – *U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch gave him (Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko) a do not prosecute list during their first meeting and recent news stories claiming he has retracted that statement are false!*

    • Patricia Flowers What testimony did she give? That she didn’t hear the call and heard 3rd hand? That she had not spoken to the POTUS? Or that she thought Trump was doing great things for Ukraine, better than Obama she also said. Or that it’s up to the president to implement foreign policy and her job is to serve at the pleasure of the president? Or was it her testimony that she was still employed with the state department? So what did she say?

  10. When he said; “she is going to go through some stuff,” that should have told anybody what he meant. That was a threat pure and simple and he should be removed from office for the threats to executive branch employees.

  11. We the people for the people.

    The entire Republican party is in violation of their oaths. And yes a few corporate Democrats are in that boat.

  16. her testimony is important in understanding that they had to vilify and then remove a perfectly good ambassador in order to create a formal state department vacuum suitable to hide their bribery scheme from the public. a bribery scheme that was financed by YOUR tax dollars, BTW.

  17. Who’s stopping the president from speaking? He is invited. Please take the stand sir. We want to hear you defend yourself in this impeachment, under oath. Please, please, please, come and speak your mind.

    • I imagine we’ll be hearing alot about him once the IG report is finished and some fraudulent FISA docs are declassified. Dems have nothing on him now. It’ll never pass the Senate, he should ignore these ridiculous liberals and bide his time.

    • Who is stopping her from speaking? Schiff read her the tweet, otherwise she would have never known

    • @AwesomeBlackDude Oh really. So Trump’s donors and cabinet members have chosen Buttigieg. That’s interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  18. 45 incriminates himself.

  19. Witness intimidation is good for 20 years. The republicans are pathetic.

  20. I love how even when intimidated she doesn’t drop her reasoning. “I can’t speak for what the president is trying to do, but I think the effect is to be intimidating.” Any person with an agenda would have just outright said that “yes he is trying to intimidate me.” What a strong willed patriot.
