The efforts to go after Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch dates back to March, according to a tweet highlighted by Washington Post reporter Greg Sargent.

“We need more ⁦@RichardGrenell’s and less of these jokers as ambassadors,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. March 24, 2019.

Yovanovitch was slated to stay on through 2020, but was abruptly called back in late April 2019.

The link he shared was to a conservative site promoting the ousting of Yovanovitch, calling her “Obama’s Ambassador.”

According to the piece, Yovanovitch had been trying to undermine Trump. Fox News host Sean Hannity had Joe diGenova on to trash the ambassador.

“The current United States ambassador Marie Yovanovitch has bad mouthed the President of the United States to Ukrainian officials and has told them not to listen or worry about Trump policy because he’s going to be impeached,” diGenova said.

Other Fox News pundits quickly followed with their own segments on Yovanovitch. Laura Ingraham specifically mentioned that ousted Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) may have taken bribes to encourage him to oppose Yovanovitch publicly.

“I wanted to bring to your attention an interaction that I recently had with individuals regarding the current U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine,” a letter from Sessions’ began. “I have received notice of concrete evidence from close companions that Ambassador Yovanovitch has spoken privately and repeatedly about her disdain for the current Administration in a way that might call for the expulsion of Ms. Yovanovitch as U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine immediately.”

“I kindly ask you consider terminating her ambassadorship and find a replacement as soon as possible,” Sessions added.

It has now been discovered that two associates of Rudy Giuliani were funneling money into super PACS to support Sessions along with others who took up the cause to find dirt on the Biden family in Ukraine.

‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’: Famous anti-cult attorney explains what Trump has in common with notorious People’s Temple leader

Published

on

Los Angeles-based attorney/journalist Paul Morantz is famous for his work against cults — most notably, Synanon, which tried to kill him in 1978 by placing a rattlesnake in his mailbox. And in a scathing op-ed for his website, Morantz compares President Donald Trump to the infamous cult leader Jim Jones, arguing that Trump, in effect, committed “mass murder” by downplaying the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and encouraging large gatherings despite the dangers.

In 1978, the same year in which Morantz survived a rattlesnake bite, Jones was responsible for a mass killing in a remote area of Guyana — where the leader of the People’s Temple ordered his followers to drink Kool-Aid that was laced with cyanide. More than 900 cult members died at the Jonestown settlement on November 18, 1978, and in 2020, the slang expression “drinking the Kool-Aid” is still used to criticize people who blindly accept bad information.
