Ex-Ambassador Yovanovitch Arrives on Hill for Deposition

Friday, 11 October 2019 10:47 AM

Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch arrived on Capitol Hill  Friday morning for a deposition in the Democrats' impeachment inquiry despite President Donald Trump's position that his administration won't cooperate with the probe.

Yovanovitch was recalled from her post in May and is now a State Department fellow at Georgetown University. Trump said earlier this week that he would block officials from testifying.

Democrats are investigating Trump's direct pleas to Ukrainian officials to launch investigations of political rival Joe Biden and his family. The Associated Press reported Thursday that a former diplomat, recalling a recent conversation with Yovanovich, said she was removed after insisting that the requests for investigations be relayed according to long-established protocol.

Yovanovitch was recalled from Kyiv in May as Rudy Giuliani — who is Trump's personal attorney and has no official role in the U.S. government — pushed Ukrainian officials to investigate baseless corruption allegations against the Bidens.
