Devin Nunes: 'We were ready' to bring in witnesses to show Marie Yovanovitch was anti-Trump
7 Feb 2020 — #Swamp
Marie Yovanovitch was fortunate that House Republicans could not bring in additional witnesses to prove her hatred for President Trump, according to Rep. Devin Nunes.
“There's a reason why she got fired,” the California Republican said in a Thursday appearance on the Ingraham Angle. “This is one of the things we could never really get out because we couldn't bring in witnesses, but you know, we had people that we were ready to bring in that said that she was anti-Trump, espousing anti-Trump administration views while she was ambassador to Ukraine. That’s her boss.”

In related news, the Washington Post ran an op-ed by Yovanovitch on Thursday, which prompted the obedient “blue-checkmark” Twitter brigade to fire off a bunch of her quotes in an act of sheer compliance, errr... I mean, defiance.
"We must not allow the United States to become a country where standing up to our government is a dangerous act" and "Our institutions need us as much as we need them" were two of the more popular virtue signals. Feel free to copy and paste if you need a little positive affirmation.
Ambassador Yovanovitch, with a challenge for us: “We need to stand up for our values, defend our institutions, participate in civil society & support a free press. Every citizen doesn’t need to do everything, but each one of us can do one thing. https://t.co/GkA2g7nvjC— Joyce Alene (@JoyceWhiteVance) February 7, 2020
She keeps contradicting herself. https://t.co/rxr9rrVUBD— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) February 7, 2020
Pure nonsense. Does anyone actually believe that Yovanovitch wasn’t trashing POTUS? She should have been fired a long time ago. https://t.co/8sEGNHQW0N— Arthur Schwartz (@ArthurSchwartz) February 7, 2020
