According to a new report, ousted Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch may have lied under oath to Congress during her impeachment deposition. Uncovered emails by Fox News show Yovanovitch was directly contacted by a Democrat congressional staffer on the Foreign Affairs Committee two days after the whistleblower complaint was filed.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) blocked a resolution to keep the identity of the whistleblower secret. Paul accused Democrats of “selective outrage,” adding they are determined on removing the president from office. The Kentucky lawmaker is now proposing his own legislation, which would let President Trump face his accuser.
According to ranking member of the House Oversight Committee Jim Jordan, Republicans intend to subpoena the whistleblower to testify publicly in the impeachment inquiry.
