Tom Fitton, the president of the right-wing organization Judicial Watch, uncorked a bonkers conspiracy theory on Wednesday about former Ukrainian ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.
While appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Fitton claimed that Yovanovitch had somehow acted improperly by trying to stop Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani from pressuring the Ukrainian government to investigate the president’s political opponents.
“I’d like to see [Yovanovitch’s] full transcript so we can see if members of Congress questioned her about this issue,” he said. “The State Department’s aware of this, guys, and it’s about time we got a full explanation about why this ambassador… was so concerned about Biden and Ukraine and George Soros, who controversially was involved in Ukraine as well… why were they monitoring the president’s lawyer and his son?”
When asked by host Steve Doocey to explained Yovanovitch’s actions, Fitton replied, “It looks a lot like an enemies list to me.”
Yovanovitch and other Trump administration officials have reportedly told Congress in recent days that Giuliani was running a “shadow” Ukrainian policy that went around traditional diplomatic channels to enlist the Ukrainian government to help with the president’s reelection campaign.
Giuliani and other Trump loyalists made a concerted effort to get Yovanovitch removed from her position — and the former Ukraine ambassador speculated it was because she was preventing them from trying to personally enrich themselves through America’s relationship with Ukraine.

Trump is ignoring his duties to obsess over impeachment and panic about GOP betrayal: report
According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump thinks of little else other than the ongoing impeachment hearings being conducted by the Democratic-controlled House and is in a constant of panic that Republicans may turn on him.
Michael Steele hilariously shreds the RNC for spending $100K on Donald Trump Jr’s ‘dumb book nobody’s going to read’
Michael Steele, former chairman of the Republican National Committee, trashed the organization he once led over revelations that donor money was used to boost sales of Donald Trump Jr.'s new book.
The former RNC chair told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he wasn't a bit surprised by the reports, and said the GOP organization has been absolutely corrupted by President Donald Trump.
"Of course it was the RNC -- SOBs," Steele said. "Oh my god."
"Look, let me just tell you how screwed up this is," he continued. "Before I became national chairman, I had written a book on how the Republican Party can regroup after the 2008 shellacking, after the 2006, you know, bang-up at the polls, and move the party forward, and people looked at me and said, 'How dare you write a book and try to profit off of the RNC.'"
The end of King Bibi? Indicted Netanyahu fights for future
Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu's indictment on corruption charges prompted speculation Friday that the end of his decade-long tenure as 'King Bibi' is nigh.
The Jewish state woke up to an indicted sitting prime minister for the first time, after the country's attorney general announced late Thursday he had charged the 70-year-old with bribery, fraud, and breach of trust.
After months of speculation Avichai Mandelblit's decision was the worst possible outcome for Netanyahu, hitting him with the most serious charges.
Israel's longest-serving premier swiftly hit back, vowing to fight on and accusing the police and legal system of bias against the right-wing in an often angry speech.
