Trump tweeting frenzy 'intimidates' ex-envoy
Marie Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who the Trump administration removed from her post earlier this year, defended her anti-corruption record.
President Donald Trump launched an extraordinary Twitter attack on a former US ambassador to Ukraine on Friday as she testified to an impeachment hearing in Congress, a move she called "very intimidating."
Marie Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who the Trump administration removed from her post earlier this year, defended her anti-corruption record during the hearing and said her removal had left US policy there in disarray.
As Yovanovitch testified, Trump fired off criticism of her on Twitter, saying: "Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go?"
In the most dramatic moment of the impeachment hearings so far, the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff then asked Yovanovitch for her reaction to the tweet. She said it was "very intimidating."
"I can't speak to what the president is trying to do, but I think the effect is to be intimidating," she said.
Schiff replied: "Well, I want to let you know, ambassador, that some of us here take witness intimidation very, very seriously."
