WATCH: Adam Schiff Accuses Trump of ‘Witness Intimidation’

We’ve already gone from “quid pro quo” to bribery, and now Democrats’ newest impeachment-related allegation against President Donald Trump is witness intimidation.

During the House Intelligence Committee’s Friday morning open impeachment probe hearing with former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, chairman Adam Schiff paused the proceedings to read a tweet from the president criticizing the career diplomat.

“Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad,” Trump said. “She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.”

When asked to respond to her former boss, Yovanovitch said, “I don’t think I have such powers, not in Mogadishu, Somalia, and not in other places. I actually think that, where I served over the years, I and others have demonstrably made things better for the U.S. as well as for the countries that I’ve served in.”
