IMPORTANT UPDATE: Briefly Noted: What You Should Know About Marie Yovanovitch

Marie Yovanovitch is the former ambassador to Ukraine who was removed for anti-Trump activity. Devin Nunes tells you what you need to know:

Rep. Devin Nunes: It was well known. We’ve had both former officials and current officials come and tell us that this was a very partisan ambassador. This was somebody who was not only supporting the Clintons, when Clinton was running, telling the people that Clinton was going to win, prognosticating about it. But also once Trump won was badmouthing the Trump administration in Ukraine, to Ukrainians and State Department staff… We would want to get her on the record, did she support the Trump administration? Did she really say these negative things about the Trump administration? Was she looking at journalists? Was she monitoring journalists in the United States? These are all questions that we want answers to… My guess here is that this is someone who the Democrats have been coordinating with. Let’s not pretend that this ambassador hasn’t been working with the Democrats. That’s been happening.

Paul Mirengoff at Powerline adds an interesting angle. John Solomon has reported:

the U.S. embassy in Kiev had been refusing to provide Ukrainian law enforcement officials with visas so they can deliver their evidence of election meddling and corruption to Washington.

Mirengoff adds:

For what it’s worth, I have heard rumors that Yovanovitch has said privately that she blocked the visas at the behest of Joe Biden. This is third-hand information and should be viewed as such.

UPDATE: Really important interview with John Solomon: John Solomon Exposes Fired Ukrainian Ambassador's Links to Radical Soros Group. The video is about 8 minutes long but Solomon comes on about half way through. Very interesting. Solomon also speaks about the indictments by DoJ of the two Ukrainian associates of Rudy Giuliani:



    The narrative begins to gel.

    1. But that's an enormous 'So what?' Don Surber says it all nicely:

      The mass media's loss of credibility is deliberate -- a campaign to end objectivity, which is the foundation of a free press.

      Consider today's news that a former ambassador to Ukraine ambassador dumped on President Donald John Trump.

      The Washington Post reported, "Ousted ambassador Marie Yovanovitch tells Congress Trump pressured State Dept. to remove her."


      Ambassadors work at the will and pleasure of the president. Just as Jim Comey did.

      The press knows this but reporters and their editors believe readers are dumb enough to believe these people are above politics.

  2. "On March 20th [John] Solomon published his interview with Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko alleging Yovanovitch gave him a 'do not prosecute list', back in 2016.

    According to Redstate – Lutsenko told Solomon that in April 2016, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s office was investigating a nonprofit called the Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC). The concern was that $4.4 million the U.S. had sent to help fight corruption in Ukraine had been improperly diverted.

    This so-called anti-corruption organization, AntAC, was co-founded by the Obama administration and George Soros."

    Another Soros group. Is there any org involved in leftist shenanigans and capers NOT at least partially funded by Soros? -MR

    1. I was listening to Solomon while you were commenting.
