We had heard about Judicial Watch looking into a government official turning the tools of government against US citizens… we now know a lot more about who and why.
As we had previously reported, our Ambassador to the Ukraine was an Obama holdover, one that did not have a positive view of his successor. It has been reported that she actively undermined the President and his agenda.
Not surprisingly, Schiff and company spun a very different story about sinister souls trying to ruin her good name.
We are about to find out just how ‘good’ that ‘good name really is’. And if reports check out, she’s as crooked as a bag of snakes.
It could show us just how far the rot from the Obama years might really go.

The claim is that some really interesting monitoring of very specific keywords and very specific individuals was ordered directly by the Ambassador herself, and was only discontinued when it was realized there was no lawful authority for her to use such governmental tools against US persons.
How commonplace had such orders become that the ambassador didn’t even flinch at the thought of monitoring journalists and political enemies, using them to protect her own ass as well as that of… Soros? Why Soros?
And didn’t Soros himself (or at least, one of his organizations) also benefit from the firing of the Ukrainian prosecutor who was also looking into Burisma?
“Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources,” the watchdog group said in a press release. “Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch.”
Specifically, Judicial Watch believes the following people were being monitored:
Jack Posobiec, One America News Network Host
Donald Trump Jr., son of President Donald Trump
Laura Ingraham, Fox News Host
Sean Hannity, Fox News Host
Michael McFaul, President Obama’s Ambassador to Russia
Dan Bongino, Fox News Contributor
Ryan Saavedra, Reporter at the Daily Wire
Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s Personal Attorney
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Former Strategist for President Trump and host of Salem’s “America First” Radio Program
John Solomon, Executive Vice President at The Hill
Lou Dobbs, Fox Business Host
Pamela Geller, Political Commentator
Sara Carter, Investigative Reporter and Fox News Contributor
The FOIA includes any documents relating to the “monitoring of any U.S.-based journalist, reporter, or media commentator by any employee or office of the Department of state between January 1, 2019 and the president.”
How much spying WAS there?
Why was Guiliani being illegally monitored by a diplomat with a bunch of journalists and political commentators?
What made a diplomat think she had reason and authority to monitor the President’s son?
If this isn’t behavior undermining a lawful president, what is it?
And did any of this come up at the so-called ‘impeachment hearings’? It seems like it would go a long way to understanding credibility, and whether there was any possibility that she was working with others in an attempt to undermine and destroy a political rival — the President himself.
Or is it only coincidence that she happens to have been recalled from the same country that the ‘whistleblower’ call was centered around, only a short time before the phone call that started us down this road?
Some of us don’t really believe in such coincidences.
