For weeks I have watched and listened in dismay as the liberal media has elevated Marie Yovanovitch and other US officials as being powerhouse diplomats. This elevation happened after they gave testimony against President Trump during the Impeachment Inquiry farce lead by Senator Adam Schiff.
Their testimony is part of the Democrats and liberal media second act at a coup d’etat to remove President Trump from office. Now, of course, they aren’t calling it a coup d’etat. Instead, they are saying President Trump must be impeached and removed from office because he used “the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election” in a quid pro quo manner with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The genesis of this fake abuse of power is based on second-hand information a whistleblower (aka spy Eric Ciaramella) shared with Schiff and his Intelligence Committee. According to the second-hand information, on July 25, 2019, Trump asked the Ukraine president, as a favor, to investigate the former Vice President Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden on corruption claims in exchange for military aid.
The spy, Eric Ciaramella, admittedly did not have first-hand knowledge of the call. He claimed, however, the call raised great concerns among US diplomats and government officials who were aware of the call. To that end, Schiff and his team of henchmen decided to move forward with secret hearings in the basement of the Capitol. The hearings were later called impeachment inquiries.
Only Democrats, chosen by Schiff, were allowed to ask the witnesses questions. Republicans were held at bay. Those attending the basement meetings were warned against sharing any of its proceedings with the public or media. Except it seems, Schiff had leaked out parts of the hearings, to an eager to spin liberal media, to control a false narrative of misdoings by the president.
Enter Ambassador Yovanovitch. She became an ambassador after her predecessor, Geoffrey R. Pyatt, was nominated by President Barack Obama to serve as Ambassador to Greece in 2016. She has a storied career working in the government.
Only after Yovanovitch was relieved of her ambassadorship did she enter into the semi-private sector. Now she is a Senior State Department Fellow at Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of Diplomacy (probably still getting paid by taxpayers).
Based on her background and the stories created by the liberal media Yovanovitch is supposed to be the stalwart gal in the community. It was her testimony that Democrats and the liberal media have lauded as being compelling proof of a quid pro quo by the president.
She, they reported, against the odds and intimidation of Trump testified that he had threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine unless their government investigated the vice president and his son. When she protested against the action, and other matters she deemed inappropriate to foreign affairs, she was fired.
During her ambassadorship, Yovanovitch, an Obamaite, was known for not liking the president and worked against his policies for Ukraine. She also was known to have created a list of conservative media personalities she wanted to be monitored.
Upon closer observation, it is easy to deduct that Yovanovitch is anything but a supporter of the president’s foreign policies. She saw herself as a foreign policymaker, which couldn’t be any further from the truth.
Simply put Yovanovitch was just the hired help serving at the pleasure of the president. As was/is the case of the other diplomats and government officials who disagreed with the president’s foreign policy. They don’t get to set policy or dictate how policy should be handled. It wasn’t her job or theirs, nor should it be.
In Article II of the Consitution, the president has the power to make foreign policy, nominate ambassadors and appointments are made with the advice and consent of the Senate. Nowhere in the Constitution does it give powers to Yovanovitch, the liberal media or any other person.
So while Democrats and the liberal media are heralding Yovanovitch and others as defenders the Constitution seeking to right a wrong by Trump, they aren’t. They are all part of the plan to overthrow the government. Why? Because they can’t accept his winning and their roles as being the hired help that he can get rid of as he sees fit.
Note: transcripts of the conversation between the two leaders have been released. There was no malfeasance present. The Ukrainian president himself has said the same.
