Democrats Criticize President Trump Over Yovanovitch Tweet

Friday was day two of the impeachment inquiry hearing of President Trump with testimony from former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

The House Intelligence Committee kicked off its first public impeachment inquiry hearing earlier this week and before the hearing, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (C-DA) put Republicans on notice the hearing will be solely focused on President Trump and Ukraine and not on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter or on Ukraine’s possible role in interfering in the 2016 election.

Democrats want to use the testimonies to build their impeachment case against President Trump in an attempt to prove the president abused his power by withholding military aid in exchange for Ukraine to investigate the Biden’s.

Following the start of the hearing on Friday, President Trump weighed in on Twitter about Ambassador Yovanovitch.

Democrats went after President Trump over his comments about Ambassador Yovanovitch by accusing him of “witness intimidation” during her testimony.

The Daily Caller reports:

House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff accused the president of witness intimidation during the hearing and read Trump’s tweet aloud to the room.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) criticized and accused President Trump of “witness tampering” and said he’s “not satisfied with only one article of impeachment.”

Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) called out Schiff for shutting down his Republican colleagues from asking relevant questions.

Stefanik also mocked Schiff by reading some of his old tweets and media comments that the whistleblower would testify.

Fox News reports:

Stefanik 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.

Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) commented on Twitter about Ambassador Yovanovitch.

Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA) tweeted in response to Ambassador Yovanovitch’s testimony saying, “Game over. Time to end this impeachment charade.”

After two days of testimonies, no one testifying said President Trump committed impeachable crimes.
