Former ambassador Maria Yovanovitch trends on Twitter after Rudy Giuliani admits he “forced her out” to dig up dirt on Joe Biden to help Donald Trump. The thing Trump denied was verified on live TV by his personal lawyer, who is the prime driver of his impeachment.
Giuliani told The New Yorker: “I needed Yovanovitch out of the way. She was going to make the investigations difficult for everybody.”
During an appearance on Fox News, Giuliani called Yovanovitch “corrupt” and confirmed again that he forced her out, while trying to backtrack on that very thing. You know, “truth isn’t truth.”
Giuliani spreads sketchily-sourced smears of Yovanovitch: "I forced her out because she's corrupt. I came back with a document that will show unequivocally that she committed perjury … she should have been fired if the State Department weren't part of the deep state." pic.twitter.com/kQ13OOJvmy

This begs the question….who is Rudy Giuliani to force a government official out of her position? Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hasn’t said a word in her defense. I guess he will be very busy today not defending the former ambassador, who should sue Giuliani for slander.
Yovanovitch needed to be removed for many reasons most critical she was denying visas to Ukrainians who wanted to come to US and explain Dem corruption in Ukraine. She was OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE and that’s not the only thing she was doing. She at minimum enabled Ukrainian collusion.

Is there a public figure in the world who’s reputation and credibility has taken a bigger nose dive since 2001 than Rudy Giuliani? The guy is just sad to listen to now. #Yovanovitch pic.twitter.com/K3SWLLgwfV
