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.

“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. Trump became the 45th president of the United States. (Photo by J. Scott Applewhite – Pool/Getty Images)

“……“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. Remember the TV commercials by the huckster promoting the magic cleanup cloth called SHAM WOW?
      I think we can safely refer to this sham of an “inquiry” as a SHAM WOW….trying desperately to clean up the dirty deeds of the Obama Administrations.

    1. Andy, I believe it is their way of getting into the official record the lies of the Dems – they’re using their time to make sure the PUBLIC knows what’s been hidden – as much as possible – without Schiff slapping an ethics violation on them. For ex. making sure everyone knows Schiffty won’t release some transcripts. Jordan names who and makes sure everyone knows.

      They’re doing reporting during any opportunity to speak publicly. It’s their one chance.

    As a former citizen of Ukraine I followed the news and clearly remember reports from Kiev in 2016-17 about how Marie Yovanovitch denigrated president Trump and undermined his agenda while in the official capacity of the US ambassador to Ukraine.

    US Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch lobbied against the newly elected US president Trump on foreign soil, which is treason. Prior to that, during the election, she had successfully convinced the Ukrainian government that they should side with Hillary against Trump.

    And yet, just now, as I tried to Google “Marie Yovanovitch denigrated and undermined Trump in Ukraine,” the only results were about how “Trump denigrated and undermined Marie Yovanovitch.” The media has now become 100% Orwellian, and so has Google.

    1. So, exactly WHAT did Yovanoviychskayaovna mean with this “The Trump administration strengthened OUR policy…”?
      Did she mean the State Department / Interagency types policy? So all of a sudden, it magically became OK for POTUS to send the Javelins to Ukraine?
      Why can’t she say “strengthened U.S. policy”?
      I say this woman was truly rattled today. “Somebody” coached her to go the Blasey-Ford route. Didn’t work.

    1. Me thinks you are correct, no vote. Any time soon that is.

      The entire faux impeachment is another version of the nervous Nancy smear.

      D-Rats will slander the President daily with complicit MCM reporting impeachable offenses…yet no crime is ever identified.

      This shitty shift show will linger well into 2020.

      The ONLY thing that will stop the charade is IG reports, declas, docs released, indictments…

      At some point the D-Rat party will implode.

      Bingo. One of the subsidiary goals of the SCHITT SHOW is to try and sow just enough doubt about POTUS to keep John Bel Edwards as governor of Louisiana.

Is Starr struck really this STUPID? Ya-done-done-it bitch would not have known of the tweet if Schitt fer brains didn’t tell her about it! Damn these people are STUPID!

      1. She looks nervous, inconvenienced at having to be there, and resentful that her partisanship is being exposed. We’ll be seeing a lot of this because they never thought Hillary would lose. And I think she knows her testimony is not helpful to the cause. She can blame her discomfort today on Schiff.

                She’s got Jim Jordan Vs Ambassador Taylor up, but “Natasha Badenov” isn’t there… at least yet. I’d also like to see an analysis of how folks reacted when Elise Stefanik grilled them… not just well done, but downright charred…

                It seems like the Republicans (at least the MAGAs) are thinkers; the DEMONicRATS, on the other hand, are stinkers. Thinkers vs. Stinkers in a Kangaroo court… wish we could bill Schiff et. al. back for the wasted time… add a few miles to the wall….

  7. Having been out of the house and watching this off and on and only again catching up is wondering if our reps have been able to convey the notion that Mrs Yavonvich was let go because she did not recognize her duty to look into spy gate and Biden corruption at the proper behest of the president but instead just acted like a normal resistor. considering such absurd, not worth serious consideration and thus became a toad in the road who needed to be squashed or removed?

      1. Ackkk!.. That was the last. IMO more should of been pursuing Jordan’s line of thought in showing the president felt let down by his state dept not sharing his real concerns rather than that Yovanovitch didn’t have anything to add.

    1. Yananovich is the State Department version of DOJ’s Sally Yates.

      Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine is this year’s Russia, Russia, Russia.

      They are just kicking up a big drama for political purposes.

      Impeach, Impeach, Impeach is just to try to influence the 2020 election.
