Marie Yovanovitch, the former US ambassador to Ukraine, testified in a public hearing that she sought advice from the USA ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland what she should do about a smear campaign against her that eventually forced her from office.

Fox News anchors Chris Wallace and Bret Baier conceded how damning Trump's actions appear, despite working for a network that acts as a satellite branch of the White House comms shop. "How the hell is that witness tampering?" he asked.

"Look, the president has been frustrated with this relentless attack on him that started even before he was president", Mr Jordan said. But Trump says he saw neither of these qualities when she was an ambassador.

Yuriy Lutsenko, the former top prosecutor of Ukraine, met several times with Giuliani, according to Yovanovitch who told the House she learned Lutsenko "was looking to hurt me" in the United States. "I think that's what drives that".

Witness intimidation and witness tampering can be done whether or not there is a "trial" - Grisham wrong on all counts.

Today's proceedings are part of the Democratic-led impeachment enquiry that could threaten Mr Trump's presidency and his re-election campaign in November 2020.

"The battle lines have largely been drawn and people have made up their minds. The problem for Trump here is that, instead of being a counterpuncher he claims to be, he simply always takes the bait", Mr Heye said.

In a break during the hearing, chairman Adam Schiff called the president's tweets about Ms Yovanovitch an effort to "chill" her and other witnesses who might come forward.

She said it was a awful moment.

Her removal played into the hands of "shady interests the world over" who have learned how to remove a United States ambassador "who does not give them what they want".

Marie Yovanovitch, the former USA ambassador to Ukraine, is expected to tell the House Intelligence Committee in open session that she became the target of a political smear campaign by Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and was recalled by Trump.

Yovanovitch, who is from an immigrant family from the former Soviet Union, also denied allegations that she favored Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, in which she was defeated by Trump.

After relatively subdued testimony on Wednesday, the impeachment inquiry accelerated dramatically on Friday as Yovanovitch told impeachment investigators she felt "shocked and devastated" by Trump's personal attacks on her, and that she was "amazed" corrupt elements in Ukraine had found willing American partners to take her down.

"I swear the media are not only vicious but they are nuts".

Ms Yovanovitch said not all Ukrainians "embraced" U.S. anti-corruption work.
