On Friday, Rep. Devin Nunes questioned why Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, was even being called to testify during the public House Impeachment inquiry.
Nunes: “I don’t really have that many questions for you. You admitted in your opening statement that you don’t have any firsthand knowledge of the issues that we’re looking into.”
“I’m not exactly sure what the ambassador is doing here today. This is the House Intelligence Committee which has now turned into the House Impeachment Committee. This seems more appropriate for the subcommittee on Human Resources at the Foreign Affairs Committee if there are issues with employment and the administration… instead of an impeachment hearing where the ambassador is not a material fact witness”
Yovanovitch admitted she had no first-hand knowledge of Pres. Trump committing any “high crime or misdemeanor” other than losing confidence in her, which is not a high crime or misdemeanor. Why is Schiff wasting the time of the American people with this nonsense?
I would rather listen to Volodymyr Zelensky, Viktor Shokin, and Yuriy Lutsenko, i.e., people with some first-hand knowledge of the alleged crimes (or non-crimes, as they may turn out to be).
She was a willing participant in a campaign of disinformation. She was briefed before her confirmation that any questions referring to the Bidens and Burisma were to be referred to VP Biden’s office. She, no doubt, had been through ethics training and recognized an apparent conflict of interest concerning investigations of Burisma’s payments to Hunter Biden. She did nothing.
When Biden’s incriminating video demonstrated a coerced quid pro quo to fire the prosecutor investigating Burisma, she knew that an investigation of American corruption in Ukraine was coming. She was not cooperative and appeared to be supporting the Democratic party’s efforts to prevent an investigation from continuing.
I do not doubt that she is upset about her career being marred by her unwillingness to report an apparent conflict of interest involving Burisma and the Biden family.
The shoe will be on the other foot, and Schiff is going to be crushed. That’s my prediction.
