Judicial Watch: Obama’s Ukraine Ambassador May Have Conducted Illegal Surveillance on Trump Associates

They are conducting an investigation and seeking government documents.

The non-partisan organization, Judicial Watch is conducting an investigation into the behavior of ousted U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, who they believe quite possibly abused her authority to unlawfully spy on President Donald Trump’s associates while in her position.

Yovanovitch reportedly made a list of prominent individuals closely tied to Trump for monitoring on social media platforms and in other ways. The state department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs received the request from the embassy staff in the Ukraine, who was later informed that the request was illegal.

“This is not an obscure rule, everyone in public diplomacy or public affairs knows they can’t make lists and monitor U.S. citizens unless there is a major national security reason,” a senior state department official claimed, according to Judicial Watch.

Yovanovitch is a long-tenured bureaucrat who served as the U.S. ambassador for Kyrgyzstan and Armenia before being appointed to her post by former President Barack Obama in 2016. She was removed from her position as Ambassador in May, but still lingers around the State Department in a different role.

Judicial Watch is issuing a public records request under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain “any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the monitoring of any U.S.-based journalist, reporter, or media commentator by any employee or office of the Department of State between January 1, 2019 and the present.”

Yovanovitch testified to a joint House of Representatives subcommittee last week for over nine hours, where she made the contention that she lost her job due to her fight against corruption in the region. Some of her testimony was conveniently leaked to the press, as Democrats use the fake news media to build their narrative against the President.

“The harm will come when bad actors in countries beyond Ukraine see how easy it is to use fiction and innuendo to manipulate our system,” Yovanovitch said. “In such circumstances, the only interests that will be served are those of our strategic adversaries, like Russia, that spread chaos and attack the institutions and norms that the US helped create and which we have benefited from for the last 75 years.”

House Freedom Caucus member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) pointed out the ridiculousness of the Democrat-led probe, which is taking place behind closed doors with the public having very limited knowledge of the nascent impeachment inquiry against the President.

“For goodness sake, now we’ve got almost 20 hours of testimony from two ambassadors, and the American people don’t know what happened in those closed-door sessions, other than what the majority has selectively cherry-picked and leaked out,” said Jordan, who serves as the leading Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Judicial Watch hopes that their requests for information will shine some light on the proceedings, and perhaps expose another corrupt deep state actor working against the President in Yovanovitch.

ACCOUNTABILITY: President Trump Fires Deep State Snitch Who Triggered Impeachment Hysteria

Trump made the announcement to Congress on Friday.

Published

President Donald Trump is taking out the trash now that the impeachment witch hunt against him has subsided, and he has fired a deep state snitch instrumental in getting the impeachment proceedings off the ground.

Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, a Department of Justice attorney who served as the Intelligence Community Inspector General, after Atkinson notified Congress last year about the “whistleblower” complaint filed by CIA operative Eric Ciaramella. This prompted months of hysteria that ultimately found no evidence of Trump committing any wrongdoing.

“As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have the power of appointment … it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general,” Trump wrote in his letter to Congress. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”

Leading Democrats are not happy about Trump cleaning house and removing deep state operatives from power.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is demanding that the President to “immediately cease his attacks on those who sacrifice to keep America safe, particularly during this time of national emergency.”

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the firing is “another blatant attempt by the President to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.”

“This retribution against a distinguished public servant for doing his job and informing Congress of an urgent and credible whistleblower complaint is a direct affront to the entire inspector general system,” Schiff said in a statement.

“In the midst of a national emergency, it is unconscionable that the President is once again attempting to undermine the integrity of the intelligence community by firing yet another an intelligence official simply for doing his job,” said Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“When you speak truth to power, you should be a hero. But in this administration, when you speak truth to power, all too often, you get fired,” Schumer said during an appearance on CNN.

Republican lawmakers are generally pleased with the President’s decision to remove Atkinson.

“Like any political appointee, the Inspector General serves at the behest of the Executive. However, in order to be effective, the IG must be allowed to conduct his or her work independent of internal or external pressure,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-KY), who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“It is my hope the next nominee for the role of ICIG will uphold the same important standards laid out by Congress when we created this role,” he added.

“The intelligence community inspector general is particularly essential to ensuring the nation’s secrets are well protected and powerful, highly invasive surveillance authorities are not abused. Going forward the ICIG must step up its focus on investigating those abuses and preventing leaks of classified information,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said.

Trump is finally starting to drain the swamp by removing some of these career bureaucrats from position of authority in Washington D.C.
