Testimony of veteran diplomat Marie Yovanovitch exposes Trumps paralysing hold on the administration What shines through the testimony of Marie Yovanovitch is her disorientation. She is a veteran diplomat at the peak of her career, and in one of the most challenging but important posts in US foreign policy. But she had no clue what was happening inside her own government.
On 24 April this year, she received a call from Carol Perez, the director general of the foreign service, speaking to her in cryptic tones as if Yovanovitchs life was in danger if she remained at her ambassadorial post in Kyiv. She spoke as if there was a threat too awful to describe clearly on a phone line.
She said that there was a lot of concern for me, that I needed to be on the next plane home to Washington, Yovanovitch recalled in her testimony to the congressional committees conducting impeachment hearings. Taken aback, the ambassador to Ukraine wanted to know what the sudden panic was about. Perez just told her: I dont know, but this is about your security. You need to come home immediately.

In other words: Shes as stupid as they come and shes been promoted to a position that sounds useful, but isnt.
“Kafka in Foggy Bottom: impeachment transcript reveals fear of Trump tweets”
What a surprise, just like the Hussein Heads here: “I wish Trump would stop tweeting....”
They act like Trump is a godfather. He’s the nicest guy I can imagine. If me or half the people here were multi-billionaires it’d look like a Sopranos episode. These internal spies and saboteurs would all get whacked pumping gas, answering the door, thinking they were going to a social event, etc.
Trump is a nice guy if you ask me.
Death by tweets. The left is so lost.
This is one big load of horse hockey. Their “impeachment” case must really be crumbling.
What’s Kafkaesque is the secret impeachment crap.
It’s The Trial.
She was not a Trump person. Can you say “good-bye”?
Every single Ambassador, DCM, Attache and embassy floor sweeper serves at the pleasure of the President and he/she can fire every single one of them right now with “0” legal repercussion.
I have served at an Embassy and the Ambassador could also fire or kick out of country every single person in the Embassy. There might be a lot of political blowback to do so, and the president might remove them afterwards, but there could be no legal repercussions because they have that authority.
What a load of hooey this former Ambassador is trying to shovel.
Suddenly the guardian is all concerned over the welfare of a US ambassador. I don’t recall that much concern over the US ambassador to libya, who was murdered by fanatical m*slims for being gay.
That’s it, the Democrats are going to impeach Trump for tweeting while President.
Interesting line of reasoning. Can anyone trace out this logic, how to get from premise to conclusion?
This is rather like the Underpants Gnomes Profit Plan, as described in a South Park episode.
Something seems to be missing in the middle.
Kafka’s Trial didn’t have as much intrigue as this one.
I could just imagine some of the “super-rich” in American history being elected to that office. Ford, John Morgan, Gould and some of the others.
It would be a Sopranos episode for some of these idiots.
She was a key player in a trans national criminal enterprise that was suddenly under serious investigation and she is a key witness who can bring down many of the players, especially the Ukraine nationals.
Ukraine is one of the most corrupt nations in the world and it is lawless when it comes to actions of the rich and powerful
No telling how much damage she could do so why take a chance
We know something that she's not telling us about. And from the transcript of the call, it looks like the President of Ukraine knew something, too.
In another vein....Ukraine put out information on the phone call in their country to the population. Where is that text?
Who is in charge of the Administration? Who makes foreign policy?
Another witness that appears to be more Russian and anti-Trump. Vindman is another.
Of course they are afraid of Trump tweets.
The Mad Tweeter has them on the ropes. He is constantly destroying their carefully prepared naratives, exposing the fakeness of their very very fake news. Pointing out their corruption, which is such an abuse of power.
