As former U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment inquiry about her shock and embarrassment at President Trump describing her as “bad news” in a conversation with Ukrainian president Zelensky, Trump returned to the scene of the crime with a tweet attacking her again:

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump called her " bad news ." And Trump 's personal lawyer Yovanovitch answered questions during a day-long, closed-door session before three House But in her opening statement to the lawmakers, Yovanovich gave a forceful defense of American diplomacy

Interestingly enough, when House Intelligence Committee Republicans began their examination of Yovanovitch, they universally expressed appreciation for her service and respect for her talent and her patriotism. New York’s Elise Stefanik set the tone, as the Washington Postnoted:

Rep. Elise Stefanik, the first GOP lawmaker to question Yovanovitch in five-minute rounds, thanked the ambassador for her service, just hours after Trump’s Twitter attack on the witness, setting a drastically different tone than the president.

Ocasio-Cortez calls for Stephen Miller to resign over leaked emails

  Ocasio-Cortez calls for Stephen Miller to resign over leaked emails Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday called for White House senior adviser Stephen Miller to resign after leaked emails appeared suggest that he promoted white nationalist literature and offensive immigration stories."Stephen Miller, Trump's architect of mass human rights abuses at the border (including child separation & detention camps w/ child fatalities) has been exposed as a bonafide white nationalist," Ocasio-Cortez"Stephen Miller, Trump's architect of mass human rights abuses at the border (including child separation & detention camps w/ child fatalities) has been exposed as a bonafide white nationalist," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

The Latest Hero Exposing Trump 's Corruption Has a Name, and She Is Not F*cking Around. Yovanovitch appeared Friday after the White House and State Department had directed her not to attend, according to " With respect to Mayor Giuliani, I have had only minimal contacts with him -- a

A separate call between the two leaders ignited the impeachment inquiry, and Republicans Trump , in a conversation with Zelensky, referred to her as “ bad news .” Asked on Friday what she thought of Trump continued to assail the proceedings as “a hoax” on Thursday, and House GOP Leader Kevin

Unlike Trump, the New York Republican did not call into question Yovanovitch’s effectiveness, even as she sought to get Yovanovitch to confirm statements helping the GOP defense of Trump.

Some House Republicans (beginning with ranking House Intelligence Committee member Nunes) questioned whether Yovanovitch was even germane to the impeachment inquiry, and others sought to get her to talk about the president’s vast appointment prerogatives or the Ukrainian corruption Trump, that paragon of purity, was allegedly trying to expose and stop. But so far there’s been not a hint of the president’s contempt for the diplomat he and his hireling Rudy Giuliani smeared.

Part of what may be going on is that House Republicans quickly realized how effective Yovanovitch was showing herself to be in her testimony. Bullying her, as the president characteristically chose to do, wasn’t a good look.

GOP Rep. Stefanik mocks Schiff, reads his tweets and interviews about whistleblower testimony

  GOP Rep. Stefanik mocks Schiff, reads his tweets and interviews about whistleblower testimony Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., took some public swipes at Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., mocking him at Friday's impeachment hearing by reading old tweets from when the House Intelligence Committee chairman vowed to have the Ukraine whistleblower testify before his panel. © Provided by Fox News Network LLCStefanik read aloud Schiff’s tweets -- as well as quotes from news reports and television appearances -- where Schiff said that the whistleblower, who remains anonymous, would testify. Schiff has since denied requests for that individual to come forward, calling the potential testimony “redundant” and “unnecessary” last week.

But it also reflects the “nothing to see here” approach in which Republicans don’t defend Trump’s misconduct but instead claim it had no real consequences. That’s the reason they kept gingerly asking her whether her current posting to a teaching gig at Georgetown is really all that bad. Just as Trump’s ham-handed efforts to get the Ukrainians couldn’t be impeachable because it didn’t produce the investigation of the Bidens that he wanted (National Reviewcalled this the “No Harm, No Foul” defense), his malice toward Yovanovich is no big deal because she did all right. So Republicans are perfectly justified, in their minds, to disregard her testimony and ignore Trump’s nasty treatment of her, the career foreign service officer everyone else respects.
