Report: Impeachment Witness Marie Yovanovitch Caught in Apparent Falsehood Under Oath


Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May, misled lawmakers in her testimony she gave as part of House Democrats’ impeachment probe, according to a report.

Yovanovitch testified behind closed doors on October 11 that in mid-August, a Democrat House Foreign Affairs Committee staffer had reached out to her on her personal email with a request to come and talk to the committee about the circumstances of her departure.

She claimed that she received the email and alerted the State Department.

“So she emailed me. I alerted the State Department and, you know, asked them to handle the correspondence. And she emailed me again and said, you know, who should I be in touch with?” she said.

“It wasn’t clear to me whether it was going to be whether this was a discussion with her, whether this was a discussion with other staffers, whether it was a deposition. I mean, it just didn’t get that far, because I transferred that information to the State Department lawyers,” she said.

When asked specifically what the staffer wanted to talk about, she said, “I think I think it was the circumstances of my departure, or maybe she just kept it more general and said to catch up, but I understood it as that.”

Yovanovitch said she knew the staffer, who was a former State Department official who worked at the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson got a hold of the staffer’s email to Yovanovitch — and her reply. more

  1. So what?! The Deep State has been protecting its own since 1990; and done so very well. When Roberts leaves the Court then some Deep Staters will worry, MAYBE.

  2. The smokescreen continues to keep the Trump accomplishments out of the news by any means necessary.
    The dems view control of government as their rightful place and when they’re replaced it’s considered usurpation and any methods used to regain control as justifiable.

  3. “… Caught in Apparent Falsehood Under Oath”

    “Lied Under Oath”

    There, fixed it for ya.

    If you say a thing that you KNOW is NOT true (factual) – it is a lie – a “flat perjury.”
    No mitigation.
    No “spin.”
    No “misspoke myseff.”

    Anyone who lies (Politician, Bureaucrat, Academician, Media Maggot, Appointee, Agent, Representative, &c. especially under an “Oath”) should be subject to the most severe consequences imaginable – a Republic simply cannot function on lies – thus, a lie told in any setting is tantamount to Treason.

    Alternately, lies told around the campfire are a form of entertainment, and, I think, that too often, we confuse the two.

  4. There are different rules for
    Republicans and smellocrats

    In fact, the smellocrats aren’t
    bound by ANY rules.

    Slick Willy committed perjury without question
    though he was never tried for it
    the state of Arkansas disbarred him anyway

    Did the corrupt MSM tell you that ?
    NO, I did

    And according to scheister David Kendall
    none of this


    But, according to Adam Schiff,

    mere allegation and hate
    justifies impeachment.

  5. Just like the old lawyer joke; The truth, the whole truth & nothing but the truth. Which one do you want?

  6. “As long as it was the least dishonest thing she could come up with, at the time, it’s all good.”

    I believe that was Clapper’s excuse when he got caught out in his lie about the moslem brotherhood being a secular organization.

  7. @General Svejk….

    I followed your link……..we can only hope and pray…..

    that Trump45 is playing 3D chess……while the DEMocRATS are playing checkers.

  8. Thanks for the link Czar..
    If P.Trump set up a sting on Shifty and it plays out like I hope many heads will role.

  9. Hmm, get caught in an outright, deliberate lie and nothing happens but get caught in an elaborate multi-facted government trap on some flimsy misremembered item and your life is destroyed. I think it’s getting pretty close to the point where “that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
