Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine to Testify She Felt Threatened by Trump

HeadlineNov 15, 2019

Today lawmakers are holding the second day of public impeachment hearings. Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is set to testify that she was abruptly recalled from her post in May as part of a smear campaign to discredit her led by President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani. Yovanovitch previously testified she felt threatened by Trump, who called her “bad news” in his now-infamous July 25 call with Ukrainian President Zelensky. During the call, Trump also said of Yovanovitch, “She’s going to go through some things.”
