FBI visits the home of a Trump donor implicated in Ukraine scandal. Investigators have reportedly visited both the home and business of Connecticut congressional candidate Robert Hyde , according to CNN. No, because he ' s implicated in all of this. This is an example of all the president' s henchmen.

One of Hyde's neighbors told NBC News that an FBI agent arrived at Hyde's home before dawn and parked out front in a gray SUV. The neighbor said they believed the FBI agent did not enter Hyde's home and left by 10:30 a.m. Hyde has a "No Trespassing" sign on his property and a sign indicating security cameras are in operation, the neighbor said.

Hyde told NBC News earlier this week that he was drunk and unserious when he sent the texts to Giuliani's now-indicted associate Lev Parnas. In an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Wednesday, Parnas called Hyde a "weird" character he met at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and doubted that Hyde was actually surveilling Yovanovitch.

"Well, I don't believe it's true," he said of Hyde's claims of tracking Yovanovitch. "I think he was either drunk or he was trying to make himself bigger than he was, so I didn't take it seriously."

Ukraine opens criminal investigation into possible surveillance of Marie Yovanovitch

  Ukraine opens criminal investigation into possible surveillance of Marie Yovanovitch Ukraine is opening a criminal investigation into possible illegal surveillance of former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch after the release of Lev Parnas' text messages.The ministry in a statement said police had opened the investigation in light of text messages released by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee between two associates of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

She said he was implicated by Giuliani associate Lev Parnas. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore into attorney general Bill Barr on Thursday, saying he should be subject to investigation after Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas accused him of being deeply involved in the Ukraine affair.

Democrats have called for an investigation into Hyde's claims from his text messages with Parnas. Ukraine announced Thursday it is investigating the allegations.

A onetime landscaper, Hyde sent messages to Parnas indicating he was tracking Yovanovitch's movements in Kyiv prior to her ouster as ambassador in May. Giuliani was pushing for Yovanovitch's ouster because she was seen as an impediment to having Ukraine announce an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden and Democrats.

"They are moving her tomorrow," Hyde said in a message to Parnas on March 25.

"She's talked to three people. Her phone is off. Computer is off," he said in another text. "She's next to the embassy. Not in the embassy."

Ukraine Investigates Reports of Illegal Surveillance of U.S. Ambassador

  Ukraine Investigates Reports of Illegal Surveillance of U.S. Ambassador The police in Ukraine have opened a criminal investigation into whether allies of President Trump had the United States ambassador to the country under surveillance while she was stationed in Kyiv, the Ukrainian government said on Thursday. Democrats in the House of Representative on Tuesday revealed evidence pointing to surveillance of the ambassador, Marie L. Yovanovitch, just before Mr. Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate was scheduled to begin.

The messages show Hyde claiming he ’ s engaged operatives in the Ukraine to follow When Hyde was confronted by the media with his handiwork, he responded it was all meaningless The characters seem so off, so small and inconsequential that one wonders whether their chatter and schemes could

Hyde tweeted that he would have more “extensive comments” on the matter at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Hyde ’ s social media is littered with videos and photos of him posing with Trump and scores of other McCarthy’ s office , however, said the minority leader is “frequently stopped to take pictures with folks”

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., called the text exchanges "profoundly alarming."

"The messages suggest a possible risk to Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch's security in Kyiv before she was recalled from her post last year," Engel said. "These threats occurred at the same time that the two men were also discussing President Trump's efforts, through Rudy Giuliani, to smear the ambassador's reputation."

Yovanovitch's attorney, Lawrence Robbins, called for an investigation into the allegations Tuesday. Connecticut GOP Chairman J.R. Romano asked Hyde to end his campaign, saying his "antics" are a distraction.

Hyde has run into legal trouble in the past, having his guns taken away in June because of a protection order against him, The Associated Press reported. In June, police responded to a complaint from a local church saying that Hyde was attending services and took videos of himself in and around the church to use for political campaign purposes, posting them on social media. The church requested that police ask Hyde not to return.
