Marie Yovanovitch prepared remarks to Congress

October 12, 2019

Opening statement made by Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch before her testimony on Friday, October 11, 2019 to US House of Representative committees conducting hearings to determine whether the full House will impeach President Trump. She was fired from that post, apparently for seeking to defend the Constitution and her oath of office which promised to defend that document and this nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Please read this and decide for yourself whether she was, indeed, defending us against enemies BOTH foreign and domestic when she voiced opposition to Trump/Giuliani/Pompeo and their nefarious attempts to strengthen Trump’s prospects for re-election in 2020 by having the government of Ukraine investigate bogus claims to destroy the campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden.

Arms for trumped up (what amounts to) an invaluable campaign contribution must not stand. That the White House tried mightily to get her not to testify as she did is just the latest in a long line of actions taken by the Trump Administration’s obstruction of any and all people and documents needed by Congress to perform its oversight functions. Hopefully, others will come forward to testify as well. The American people need and deserve to know the truth concerning the lengthy and blatant abuse of power this President has perpetrated since his inauguration. – rjc

  2. Reblogged this on The Secular Jurist and commented:
    Here’s an excerpt: “That harm [to our nation’s interest] will come not just through the inevitable and continuing resignation and loss of many of this nation’s most loyal and talented public servants. It will also come when those diplomats who soldier on and do their best to represent our nation face partners abroad who question whether the ambassador truly speaks for the President and can be counted upon as a reliable partner. The harm will come when private interests circumvent professional diplomats for their own gain, not the public good. The harm will come when bad actors in countries beyond Ukraine see how easy it is to use fiction and innuendo to manipulate our system. In such circumstances, the only interests that will be served are those of our strategic adversaries, like Russia, that spread chaos and attack the institutions and norms that the U.S. helped create and which we have benefited from for the last 75 years.”

  3. I cannot recommend Ambassador Yovanovitch’s remarks to Congress highly enough. The statement is clear concise and professional. She should be a national hero.
