Diplomat gets chance to tell of her ouster by Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch says she watched in disbelief as her reputation was publicly sullied in a slow-burning campaign to discredit her. She was unceremoniously ousted from her job even as her boss assured her she had done nothing wrong.

On Friday, she gets her turn to tell the public how she feels about her treatment by the Trump administration.

Yovanovitch, a career foreign service officer who was ousted by President Donald Trump, will be the lone witness on the second day of open hearings by House impeachment investigators.

In a deposition last month, she said she “couldn’t imagine” how her ouster by Trump has played out.
