Yovanovitch Testifies That She Was Removed To Make Way For Corrupt Back Channel But Gets If No One Cares About Anything Anymore...



WASHINGTON— Appearing before the House Intelligence Committee at Friday’s impeachment hearing, former ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified that she was recalled from her post so a corrupt back channel could run U.S. policy in Ukraine but gets it if no one cares about anything anymore.

“President Trump and his allies conducted a smear campaign against me knowing I would refuse to participate in advancing illegal activities on their behalf, though I totally understand if you don’t give a shi-t because that’s just the way things work now and nothing matters,

said Yovanovitch, who stated that while she found Trump’s actions “shocking” and “unprecedented,” lawmakers were free to cut her off at any time so that they could all go back to wallowing in the sense of meaninglessness that has come to permeate American life.

“This has never really happened in the history of the modern presidency, but I can sympathize if you’re shrugging it off—I’m shrugging it off, too. Even if we do prove the president is guilty of high crimes, so what? It’s not like there are rules anymore. Frankly, I was surprised that I was called to testify at all.”

At press time, Yovanovitch told the committee that if anyone wanted to join her, she was heading to a bar to drink until she couldn’t feel anything anymore.

A political stunt that gained the Democrats nothing but a few more snickers.

Her complaint belongs in the HR department, not corrupting the corrupted impeachment hearings.

I'm no Trump fan but the idea that Ambassadors and State Dept reps don't do shady or corrupt crap. And that there aren't multiple official and unofficial back channels to various governments is just lie or naively ignorant.
(Anyone seen some of those private emails from Hillary?)

2 other points of context 1. Ambassadors serve at the will (or whim) of the Presidents and 2. the State Dept is as notorious as the CIA for running its agendas despite who is the CiC.

Concerning her comments about illegalities. Ok , what exactly was illegal?
What did Trump want her to do that was really against the law. As apposed to something she didn't like policy wise or a procedural/protocol move?
She mention corruption. Ok what Exactly was SHE a wittiness to?
Vague and lame accusations are all I'm seeing here form Her and the Dems. Another nothing burger.

her beef was he had the right to remove her but why did he malign her reputation. and now we know. TO SEND A MESSAGE TO OTHER HONEST OFFICIALS. she was impeding his hired goons with Guliani and the three amigos because she was against corruption. trump wanted Ukraine's president to go on CNN and say they were opening an investigation into the Bidens. THAT WAY, trump couldnt get impeached for this. actually joe Biden had helped get rid of a corrupt prosecutor.
also, trump wanted his henchmen to somehow make it look like Ukraine interfered in our elections instead of Russia.
the US worked hard to get a decent president duly elected in Ukraine also to fight corruption there because it is in our interest that Russia not take over any more countries. double-crossing a vulnerable Ukraine will make other countries think twice before believing us. sO THAT HURTS OUR NATIONAL SECURITY.

Not really. I'm just employing the adage of Samuel Clemons who said, "Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."
