A Republican running for Congress in Connecticut is one of the latest figures to be ensnared in the impeachment proceedings in Congress after the House released new evidence on Tuesday.

Robert Hyde, who is running to challenge Rep. Jahana Hayes (D) in Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District, was revealed to have communicated with an associate of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, regarding efforts to oust the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.

According to a series of documents released by the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight and Reform committees, Hyde communicated with Giuliani associate Lev Parnas about former U.S. Ambassador to UkraineMarie Yovanovitch.

“Wow. Can’t believe Trumo hasn’t fired this bitch. I’ll get right in that,” Hyde texted to Parnas, according to the documents released by the House chairmen. Hyde also suggested that Yovanovitch’s movements were being monitored, texting Parnas, “They will let me know when she’s on the move,” seemingly referring to her private security detail.

The Republican candidate dismissed the documents released by Democrats on Tuesday.

“What Bull Schiff? Adam Schiffhead is a poor losing [piece of shit],” Hyde wrote in a text to The Hill, referring to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). “Trump 2020.”


The documents unveiled by House Democrats on Tuesday included phone records, documents and other materials from Parnas regarding his role in efforts to convince the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, one of Trump’s chief political rivals, as well as to dismiss Yovanovitch, who some believed would be an obstacle to Trump’s efforts.
