Marie Yovanovitch expected to speak of being suddenly recalled by president and told to ‘watch my back’
The House will hear from a singular witness Friday in the Trump impeachment hearings: Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine who was targeted by the president’s allies in a “smear” campaign now central to the inquiry, Agencies report.
The career diplomat, who served both Republican and Democratic
presidents, is expected to relay her striking story of being suddenly recalled
by Donald Trump and told to “watch my back” in a swiftly developing series of
events that sounded alarms about the White House’s shadow foreign policy.
She and other officials now testifying publicly in the
historic House hearings scrambled to understand Trump’s actions, providing
revelatory accounts that Democrats are now relying on to make the case that the
president’s behavior is impeachable.
