The question is whether he was furthering the actions of an unlawful conspiracy in firing her, and the clear answer seems to be that he was. That's what needs to be argued here. Trump had the authority to fire her, sure. He did not have the authority--no President does--to further an illegal conspiracy.


    I agree with you 100%, and you've phrased it better than anyone I've ever seen.

    I think the problem is we are dealing with people who don't really care that Trump has engaged in acts of corruption. The fact Trump is a corrupt person who does corrupt things does not factor into their own political calculus. They just don't care. And I hate to say it because several of my friends and family members are Trump supporters as well, but it's the honest to God truth.

    Trump would had have to be as sluggish in mind as most democrats not to have fired her at first notice & he certainly didn't
    have to have a ham & egger like Rudy to dig up dirt on her. Their was enough dirt on her to fill a canyon!
    No, there wasn't. Not anything credible. Get this garbage out of here.

    So where exactly is the evidence that any Biden has lied about any why they did something?

    To be fair, lies are about all that's left in the Trump defenders' arsenals.

    "Something bad is going to happen to her." Sounds like a threat that a mafia boss would make...not a US president.

    He said that after he had already removed her from her post....so other than trying to ruin her career, what else did he have in mind for the Ambassador?

    Oh he has the right to do it. Except that if he does it to further his corrupt purpose, it's impeachable. It also undercuts his claim that he was against corruption, since Yovanovitch was staunch anti-corruption.

    She's a lunatic, how could she have expected to keep her job?

    Obama appointed her as the Ambassador to Ukraine, being of Ukraine extract that was her dream job.
    If she wanted to continue in that position she should have realized not to defy the positions of the new president.
    You are making this up -- or worse, repeating what Rush said, who made it up.
