She’s being accused of lying under oath and may even have been cooperating with Schiff’s staffers at the very VERY earliest of stages in this scandal.
One thing that both Left and the right can agree upon is the distrust between Trump’s team and Obama’s holdover ambassador from Ukraine. Trump’s team believes she has been undermining their administration, and she believes the administration has been undermining her.
Marie Yovanovitch, who was appointed to be the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine by former President Barack Obama, allegedly made false statements under oath during her October 11 closed-door testimony in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
“Before the contents of the whistleblower complaint were known publicly, a Democratic congressional staffer contacted the former American ambassador to Ukraine to discuss what the staffer described as ‘quite delicate and time sensitive questions,’” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusively reported. — Source: DailyWire
Has she lied under oath about her contact with Schiff’s staffers? Zeldin thinks she may have.
This is kind of a big deal from someone whose testimony is being used to basically nullify the 2016 election, isn’t it?
“In fact, it turns out that she did respond,” Carlson revealed. “She said she ‘looked forward to chatting with [the Democratic staffer].”
“As Congressmen Zeldin pointed out, the ambassador’s original answer, which was dishonest, was given under oath,” Carlson concluded.
Zeldin confirmed Carlson’s segment on Twitter, writing: “It appears Ambassador Yovanovitch did not accurately answer this question I asked her during her ‘impeachment inquiry’ deposition under oath.”
…“The question is, did Schiff’s office tell other Democrats on Capitol Hill what was in the complaint?” Carlson continued. “In other words, how long did this effort play out in secret before the rest of the country learned of it?”
Can anyone explain why she was in contact with Schiff’s team on August 14th? August 14th was TWO days after the complaint was filed, and a MONTH before it became public.
The whistle-leaker’s lawyer was rubbing his hands in glee in 2017 about the Coup he believed was underway (Coup was the word HE tweeted, and he bragged that CNN would help).
Schiff’s staffers had connections to the whistle-leaker prior to the complaint. Schiff specifically hired staffers from the same agency that inexplicably has example after example of leaked information that just happens to be damaging to the President or his allies.
If Schiff or his proxies had direct contact with witnesses that have a known #Resistance track record, it IS worth asking whether any witness tampering has occurred.
We have already seen the lengths to which he will go to manipulate the information flow in the propaganda he’s waging. Zero ethics complaints are sticking against any of the outrages on Team (D), but should a Republican counter any of that Democrat leaked information with testimony that would negate their propaganda, Democrats would all but break their knees over it.
Republicans cannot call witnesses of their choosing with the same authority as Democrats can — Schiff gets to veto any witness that he doesn’t like.
