    They are spamming excuses all over the place now. I saw that Trump couldn't be guilty of intent because he's not smart enough for intent. Any and everything is about to be thrown at the wall to protect trump.

    Oh, you think she added something to impeachment? What was it?

    For someone whose testimony "added nothing", there sure is a concerted effort by trumpanzees to trash her testimony.

    Her testimony, which you obviously didn't listen to, clearly demonstrates how she was removed, under false pretenses and w/no notice, because she wouldn't play ball with Fruity G's corrupt plans.

    Why do you insist on talking about things you have no knowledge of?

    And there you have it.
    Yes. Yovanovitch is a witness who has testified to the self-serving nature, ineptitude, stupidity, and corruption of Donald Trump, but she did not personally witness any of his crimes. For that, we'll have to see what the other witnesses say.

    Re: Yovanovitch makes it clear: Trump put his personal interests above the U.S.

    This is rather amusing. Trump asks Zelensky to look into corruption but, at the same time, is supposed to have allowed those who wanted to "stymie our efforts" against corruption, to do so. The Dems need to get their convoluted story straight. Again, the whispering campaign, to the extent one existed, and the subsequent firing of Yavanovitch, have NOTHING to do with impeachment. It's a sideshow ginned up by Dems who know they are failing on all fronts. Yavanovitch provided NO substantive information related to anything concerning quid pro quos, bribery or any of the other nonsense Schiff has claimed. She in fact, specifically answered no when asked if she had any knowledge of them.

    Of course ignorance of that obvious fact is probably why such a cheap trick works so well in Trumpland.
    Which in this case have nothing whatever to do with the issue at hand. Yovanovitch was recalled. Big deal. She claims she was there to fight corruption, but I've yet to hear of even a single instance of her doing that. Not one. Maybe you can share one with us.

    I know some people who actually know him and worked on his mayoral campaign back in the day. They simply don't know what has happened to him or how he could have become what he's become. They're dumbfounded.

    I'm not interested in Yovanovitch's opinions regarding Trump. She was appointed by Obama. I don't expect her to "like" Trump. Thst has nothing whatever to do with the job she was appointed to perform. She had the option to resign at any time.
