🇺🇸 #Pompeo #Yovanovitch

I've posted this interview with @SecPompeo for a few months now, as he refuses to answer if he’d been in prior contact with @RudyGiuliani in Feb 2019 while both were in Warsaw.

It was a simple question to answer.

Now we know why he didn't want to answer.

He knew that Giuliani was up to no good in Ukraine with Parnas, Hyde, etc, under Trump's orders.

And if he answered that question, it would tie him into the plot to intimidate, or possibly assassinate, an American ambassador?

Now, the questions are ... was Pompeo truly knowledgable and complicit in this plot? Agreed with the plot?

1/ My thread on #GOP defense of #Trump: General defense amounts to 2 arguments: 1. #Trump was genuinely concerned about #corruption in #Ukraine; 2) not enough evidence to #impeach. We have no evidence on the first & evidence to the contrary. Legally, there’s enough evidence.
2/ The strongest args #GOP makes - #Trump not caught on tape saying he was abusing his office for his personal gain. Ukraine history of corruption & publicly denied pressure. But you have to suspend reason & ignore a boatload of evidence to conclude he did nothing impeachable.
3/ #GOP on 7/25 call -#Trump didn’t reference reelection, Ukrainians happy it happened. #Volker didn’t see problem, NSC not complaining. Discounts #LtColVindman. Ignores #Pence aide thought it was “unusual” & #LauraCooper said Ukraine asked abt aid status same day after the call

So, it's #trashystefanik, is it? Why? Not happy that she pegged Yovanovitch for lying?

That's right. She knew that the #Obama #StateDepartment had assisted her in formulating answers about #HunterBiden and #Burisma as part of helping her to prepare for her #Ukraine appointment.
Yet, during the #ShamSchiff #impeachment hearing, Yovanovitch said that the subject of Hunter Biden/Burisma never came up in discussions with @JoeBiden or the #ObamaAdministration.

When Everything Is Illuminated, it will show #Putin Firtash Parnas Giuliani & #Trump wanted #Yovanovitch gone b/c her success in helping #Ukraine create independent ANTI-#corruption institutions make corrupt gas deals & fake investigations a thing of the past
#Holmes #Impeachment
#Holmes: #Yovanovitch helped #Ukraine achieve hard-fought establishment of independent anti-#corruption court. This strained relations w prosecutor Lutsenko who resisted fully empowering truly indep anti-c institutions that would help ensure nobody was above the law. #Impeachment
🔥Stunning #Holmes, p2: In March 2019, US policy of supporting Ukraine's democratic reform & resistance to Russia "became overshadowed by a political agenda being promoted by Rudy Giuliani and a cadre of officials operating with a direct channel to the White House." #Impeachment

4 items of note in Ambassador #Yovanovitch Opening Statement

1. State Dept said they removed her "under pressure from" Trump without cause.

2. Pressure from Trump started in Summer 2018—same period mentioned in Indictment of Giuliani associates' Parnas and Fruman
