Secretary of State Mike Pompeo privately expressed doubts about the accusations made against former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch by Rudy Giuliani, according to a draft of former national security adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book.

The New York Times reports that an unpublished manuscript of Bolton’s book about his time in President Donald Trump’s administration details his side of the Ukraine situation.

According to the manuscript, Pompeo privately acknowledged that Giuliani’s claims that Yovanovitch was corrupt were unfounded. The manuscript states that Pompeo privately wondered if Giuliani was targeting Yovanovitch, who supported the anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine that had involved some of Giuliani’s clients, to avoid interference while doing business in the country. The former ambassador told the House Intelligence Committee the same thing last year. 

A recently released video from April, 2018 appears to show Trump demanding that Yovanovitch be fired after being told she was speaking poorly of the president.

Bolton’s attorney, Charles J. Cooper, told the Times that he provided a copy of the book to the White House for review for classified information, and that an imperfect version of this manuscript was then leaked the press. 

“It is clear, regrettably, from the New York Times article published today that the pre-publication review process has been corrupted and that information has been disclosed by persons other than those properly involved in reviewing the manuscript,” Cooper said.
