Speak Out: Yovanovitch testifies

Former U.S. Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch provided detail in Trump impeachment hearings Friday of the “big threat” she felt upon suddenly being ousted from her post and learning President Donald Trump had denounced her in his July phone call with Ukraine’s president. In that call, Trump assailed her as “bad news” and said she was “going to go through some things.”

• Bad employee is mad that she got fired for being a bad employee. News at 11. — Chris Werner

•I guess everyone that disagrees or points out his wrong is a bad employee? — Prentice Griffin

•What’s wrong? Getting replaced as even the new Ukraine president said she is not a joy to work with. She also has no ties to the phone call, and no first hand knowledge of it. It’s also the right of a president to replace or remove any ambassador anywhere in the world. Not the State Department. —Jeff Grzeszczak

• This is called background testimony. It is for the purpose of providing reasoning for the crimes. — Dennis Norwood

• Apparently, Trump’s ploy to smear the good reputation worked on his soft-minded base of cult followers who will defend him no matter what. The reason she was removed from the position and Trump tried to sully her reputation is quite clear. She was in the way of him successfully bribing the Ukraine into investigating a political opponent. Trump, Guiliani, and the three stooges are part of the very corruption they are painting themselves to be fighting against. — Gary Greer
