Ex-envoy tells impeachment inquiry Trump ousted her based on 'false claims'
The former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine on Friday told a House of Representatives impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump that he ousted her based on “unfounded and false claims” after she had come under attack by his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
Marie Yovanovitch, abruptly recalled as the U.S. envoy to Ukraine in May, appeared for a closed-door deposition, according to Democratic lawmakers leading the inquiry, after she had been told by the State Department at the behest of the White House not to show up. The lawmakers said they then issued a subpoena for her appearance and she complied.
