Ex-Ukraine envoy arrives to testify in impeachment probe

Ex-Ukraine envoy arrives to testify in impeachment probe

She's the career diplomat Rudy Giuliani sought to have removed as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, and who the president himself has called "bad news." And on Friday she arrived to testify to House committees in the escalating impeachment probe against Donald Trump. Marie Yovanovitch, who was abruptly recalled from her post in Ukraine in May, was set give a deposition to congressional investigators probing Trump's dealings with Ukraine - despite a pledge from the White House to stonewall the congressional impeachment probe. Her testimony behind closed doors is among the first of several key depositions sought by House Democrats, who are investigating whether Trump pressured Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden. Lawmakers on Friday are expected to ask Yovanovitch about what she knew about efforts by Giuliani and Trump to push Ukraine to investigate Biden and his son. Giuliani has alleged she blocked those efforts. On Thursday, two of Giuliani's associates were arrested in what New York federal prosecutors said was a scheme to illegally funnel money to a pro-Trump election committee. Lev Parnas, a Ukrainian-American businessman, and Igor Fruman, who are mentioned in the whistleblower complaint that sparked the impeachment probe, are also accused by prosecutors of acting on behalf of Ukrainian officials and using their political connections to get Yovanovitch recalled. Earlier this week, the Trump administration blocked another key witness from testifying, U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland. But his lawyers now say he will come back to testify before the House committees next Thursday.

Exclusive: Giuliani was paid $500K by indicted associate's firm

Exclusive: Giuliani was paid $500K by indicted associate's firm

Reuters reported exclusively on Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, was paid $500,000 for work he did for a company co-founded by Lev Parnas, the Ukrainian-American businessman arrested last week on campaign finance charges. That's according to Giuliani himself, who told Reuters that Parnas' company - Florida-based Fraud Guarantee - whose website says it aims to help clients “reduce and mitigate fraud” - hired Giuliani in August of 2018 to consult on Fraud Guarantee’s technologies and provide legal advice. A law enforcement source said Federal prosecutors are “examining Giuliani’s interactions” with Parnas and another Giuliani associate, Igor Fruman, who was also indicted on campaign finance charges, after the two men were arrested at Dulles Airport with one-way tickets to Europe - accused of funneling foreign money to unnamed U.S. politicians in a bid to influence U.S. relations with Ukraine. Giuliani told Reuters “I know beyond any doubt the source of the money is not any questionable source,” adding “The money did not come from foreigners." The former New York City mayor has become a key figure in the impeachment probe into the president, which was sparked by a whistleblower complaint that alleges Trump pressed Ukraine's president to investigate Trump’s political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. For the first time since the impeachment probe began, Hunter Biden defended his overseas work in an interview with ABC News, after facing a barrage of political attacks hurled by Trump, who has for weeks asked "Where's Hunter Biden" at rallies and on his Twitter page. Trump has accused the younger Biden - without evidence - of using his father's influence to help secure foreign backing for his investments. In the ABC interview that aired Tuesday, Hunter Biden said he “did nothing wrong at all,” but conceded he may have provided an opening to attacks on his father, who is a leading contender for the Democratic Party nomination to challenge Trump in the 2020 election.

Trump ex-Russia adviser testifies in impeachment inquiry

Trump ex-Russia adviser testifies in impeachment inquiry

More depositions in the Democratic-led House of Representatives and more angry tweets from the Republican president on Monday, as the impeachment probe into Donald Trump cranked back up this week. Fiona Hill, the former senior director for European and Russian Affairs on Trump’s National Security Council, arrived on Capitol Hill on Monday as the latest witness summoned by the House Intelligence Committee for closed-door testimony. Hill, who stepped down from the National Security Council this past summer, is likely to be asked about the Trump administration’s removal of Marie Yovanovitch as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. On Friday, Yovanovitch testified that she had been removed based on “unfounded and false claims” after coming under attack by Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who had been working to get Ukraine to investigate Trump’s political rival, Joe Biden. Also on Monday, the House is scheduled to hear from Sam Kislin, an Ukrainian-American businessman with ties to Giuliani. The former mayor of New York City has become a key figure in the impeachment probe into the president, which focuses on a July 25th phone call in which Trump pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate former Vice President Biden and his son Hunter. In a series of tweets on Monday, Trump demanded to know the identity of the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment probe. Trump has denied wrongdoing. The House probe could prompt the approval of articles of impeachment leading to a trial in the Senate on whether to remove Trump from office.
