20191115: Shampeachment ~ Marie Yovanovich

What’s the over/under on Marie breaking out into tears during testimony? Marie thinks President Trump was mean to her, implies she “feels threatened”. Really, Marie?

From President Zelinsky to President Trump: “……It was great that you were the first one who told me that she was a bad Ambassador because I agree with you 100%. Her attitude towards me was far from the best as she admired the previous President and was on his side. She would not accept me as a new President well enough.

July 25, 2019, Oval office phone call. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/09/25/read-donald-trump-releases-transcript-with-ukranian-president-volodymyr-zelensky/

Background: Yovanovitch was born in 1958, in Canada. Her parents were Russian emmigrees, moved to Connecticut at age 3. Parents were professors, taught Russian. She grew up speaking Russian. Naturalized American citizen at age 18. Graduated Kent School in ’76, went to Princeton, BA in History and Russian Studies, entered foreign service. Posts in Canada, Moscow, London, Mogadishu, and Kyrgyzstan. Deputy Chief of Mission in Kiev, Ukraine from August 2001 to June 2004 (right up to the Orange Revolution). Then appointed Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan, Ambassador to Armenia. Back to State Dept in 2011, helped get rid of missiles in Poland (bad idea-Obama gave it away and got nothing in return). Announced as Amb to Ukraine on May 18, 2016 (note date), approved August 29th of 2016, just in time for US election.

No mention of husband or children.

Our General Complaint

  • Yovanovich got 4 cases dismissed.
  • Passed along info damaging about Trump campaign
  • Used her office as Hillary Clinton headquarters, working with Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS.
  • Yovanovich is also implicated in the Black Ledger docs which magically appeared (implied Manafort was receiving millions in cash payments) and were supplied to the prosecutors in Ukraine along with a simultaneous delivery to the New York Times.
  • May 2019, After Durham’s visit to Ukraine, Yovanovitch was fired and the evident outrage by the left was for good reason. This is where the Atlantic Council, AntAC, but more importantly Nellie Ohr and her mentor’s involvement in #crossfirehurricane, came to light.

Yovanovitch and Sergiy: As an Ambassador to the USA, worked with an MP in Parliament, Sergiy Leshchenko.

Leshchenko is a hard left fascist radical (used to be an investigative journalist) who leaked the Party of Regions docs on Manafort to the NYTimes. He was found GUILTY of the leak, convicted for meddling in a US Election of 2016. The conviction was overturned on “standing of suing party” and “statute of limitations” technicalies. No denying Sergiy did it – he’s proud of it. He doesn’t seem to understand he’s an MP now and not a rag reporter with journalist immunity to smear. Almost 100% consensus the documents were faked, provenance is sketchy, but the trick worked and Manafort was forced to resign the following day. https://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/229471/ukrainian-mp-manafort-secrets

Yovanovitch and Lutsenko: Chief Prosecutor Yuri Lutsenko claimed Yovanovitch gave him a “do not prosecute” list. State Dept denied it. Lutsenko backed off claim to avoid tension with our State Dept, but Lutsenko’s notes on the meeting specifically mention “do not prosecute list”. https://thehill.com/hilltv/rising/434875-top-ukrainian-justice-official-says-us-ambassador-gave-him-a-do-not-prosecute

Yovanovitch and PRESIDENT Zelinsky: Zelinsky does not like Yovanovitch and implied she told him she preferred the previous President. I believe that’s from the phone call on July 25th – Again:

From President Zelinsky to President Trump: “……It was great that you were he first one who told me that she was a bad Ambassador because I agree with you 100%. Her attitude towards me was far from the best as she admired the previous President and was on his side. She would not accept me as a new President well enough.

Yovanovitch and George Kent: In her testimony, Marie claims she never spoke to George about Burisma or Hunter Biden. Really? George Kent was her Deputy. George Kent complained about the appearance of conflict of interest for Hunter Biden, to the VP’s staff, directly…….. but he never spoke to Marie?

Yovanovitch and Giuliani: Judge for yourself.

Yovanovitch Surveillance of Americans: (Judicial Watch) Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources. Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch.  Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department and will continue gathering facts from government sources.

Prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means.  Ukraine embassy staff made the request to the Washington D.C. headquarters office of the department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. After several days, Yovanovitch’s staff was informed that the request was illegal and the monitoring either ceased or was concealed via the State Department Global Engagement Center, which has looser restrictions on collecting information.

http://patriotcrier.com/judicial-watch-evidence-ousted-trump-obama-appointee-ambassador-marie-yovanovitch-illegally-monitored-u-s-citizens/

“This is not an obscure rule, everyone in public diplomacy or public affairs knows they can’t make lists and monitor U.S. citizens unless there is a major national security reason,” according to a senior State Department official. If the illicit operation occurred, it seems to indicate a clear political bias against the president and his supporters. 

Hidden in the new law – Section 1287 – are the funding and guidelines necessary to establish a Global Engagement Center.  The wording is sufficiently vague enough for the GEC to become a Ministry of Truth.

http://patriotcrier.com/judicial-watch-evidence-ousted-trump-obama-appointee-ambassador-marie-yovanovitch-illegally-monitored-u-s-citizens/

Section 1287, (a) Establishment, (2) Purpose: The purpose of the Center shall be to lead, synchronize, and coordinate efforts of the Federal Government to recognize, understand, expose, and counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining United States national security interests.

From 2017

National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 into law last Friday while Americans were busy making their last minute Christmas preparations. The vote in the Senate on December 8th was 85-13 where its sponsor was John McCain.  Only two Republicans voted against the final version before it was sent to President Obama to sign.  It had passed the House a week earlier by a vote of 375-34 with no more than 5 Republicans voting against it.  Paul Ryan wasn’t one of them.

Hidden in the new law – Section 1287 – are the funding and guidelines necessary to establish a Global Engagement Center. 

Yovanovitch will play the victim.

State Dept has rallied around her

WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 20: President-elect Donald Trump (C) and President Barack Obama (R) are greeted by members of the Congressional leadership including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as they arrive for Trump’s inauguration ceremony at the Capitol on January 20, 2017 in Washington, DC.

“……“bribery” as defined under the constitution for impeachment speaks to the President receiving cash or value to take an action for the benefit of a foreign power. [Pelosi has the entire thing reversed]…” SD

    1. Someone with good editing skills is going to make an incredible video montage of his behaviour. He’s sabotaging himself in full public view (not that it was necessary). I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like it.

        Their testimony was based on secondhand accounts of conversations involving White House officials. Rep. Meadows and Rep. Jordan signaled that would happen again Friday, during the committee’s second public hearing.

        “Adam Schiff hasn’t released the real transcripts. Technically, we’re not allowed to use that material in hearings tomorrow,” Rep. Jordan said.

        “There’s all kinds of problems with this.”

        The former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is testifying as part of the ongoing impeachment probe Friday. Yovanovitch testified behind closed doors in October, but proved to never having direct knowledge of the President’s phone call with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky. She left Ukraine in May to teach at Georgetown University.

        “Tomorrow, it’s even better than that. The Ambassador who’s coming in wasn’t there during the phone call, wasn’t there when the aid was suspended. You know where she was, she was at Georgetown,” Rep. Meadows said.

        Rep. Meadows argued that Amb. Yovanovitch has been one of the harshest critics of the President and slammed him in an earlier op-ed. “It’s America first, not Ukraine first,” Rep. Meadows argued.

        “If they want to start directing policy for the hardworking American taxpayer, they need to put their name on a ballot instead of putting their name on a witness list.”

    1. WAYyyyyyyyy back when I was targeted for FSO position, it was supposed to be ….
      They were looking for people who had knowledge of the country, could speak the language, and had diplomatic/liaison skills.
      Goal was always to push USA interests back in the 80’s.
      I understand, many of those were purged in the Clinton years and it State Dept was turned into more social agenda issue pushing….. things like abortion, etc.

        It WAS a quid pro quo thing too – no homosex/abortion – no foreign aid!

        It was despicable.

    Gubmint perps should have to live under “hire at will” just like all of the rest of us. Ambassadors serve at the will of and the discretion of the President.

    If they don’t like it: tough. In this environment, if they have any use ability(ies), they’ll find a new job in days. Of course, these professional trough-feeders have no usefule abilities, hence their outright fear…

    1. Interesting. In that thread, Rep. Mark Green said,

      “In 8 days, the U.S. military runs out of funding…”

      Could that be a large part of the DEMONicRATS’ “strategy”? Halt military funding, and indirectly halt the building of the wall??? And set the USA up for foreign aggression (as if we’re not already seeing it from China and the globalists)?

      Can’t wait to see all the DEMONicRATS lined up, walked off, and locked up…

  6. So Marie asked Sondland for advice

    He said, Go big or go home.
    Send out a tweet, praise the President.

    Her reaction was she was sure he meant well, but it felt political to her, but she was above it all………. she was a professional.

    Really?

  7. One thing I really like about DirecTV is the ability to pause a channel for half an hour or so, then resume and FF through the crap I don’t want to see. For example, I’ve been FF’ing past all the Demonrat Congress people and only watching the Republican questions. I don’t need to hear or see the lies of the left.

  9. Getting very sick and tired of all the accolades the Republican reps are slathering Amb Yovanovitch with. So she was a public servant for 33 years. So what? She just knew how to play the game is all that says to me. And she was paid highly for her time, too. But she went against President Trump, her boss. And he canned her.

    WTH does this have to do with the August phone call?
