Trump and his defenders have been arguing, weakly, that his actions toward Ukraine were somehow consistent with U.S. national interests.
There is no way to make that case about his actions toward Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, writes the Editorial Board.
In compelling testimony during the House’s impeachment inquiry on Friday, she described how the president’s firing of her was orchestrated by corrupt Ukrainian actors whom the U.S. had been trying to neutralize — and how that reversal damaged U.S. diplomacy around the world.
No wonder, then, that Trump, who has never offered a reason for yanking Yovanovitch, took to Twitter to abuse her.
Democrats were right to suggest this amounted to witness intimidation.
