“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.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
