Yovanovitch calls for investigation following evidence released by lawmakers

Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch called for an investigation Tuesday into “what happened” after newly released evidence suggested that her movements were being monitored.

Yovanovitch requested the investigation through her lawyer Lawrence Robbins, who issued a statement on her behalf.

“Needless to say, the notion that American citizens and others were monitoring Ambassador Yovanovitch’s movements for unknown purposes is disturbing,” he said in the statement obtained by The Hill. “We trust that the appropriate authorities will conduct an investigation to determine what happened.”

The former ambassador’s calls come after the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform committees released additional evidence to be submitted to the Senate for the impeachment trial. 

The evidence included communications between Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas and Connecticut congressional candidate Robert Hyde that hinted that the ambassador was being watched.

“Wow. Can’t believe Trumo hasn’t fired this bitch. I’ll get right in that,” Hyde texted to Parnas, according to the released documents.
