President Trump blasted out harsh criticism of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch  during her testimony before the House Intelligence Committee Friday morning, which is now being described as having taken the impeachment hearing against him to a whole new level.

“Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors,” Trump tweeted.

After his tweet, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) read the tweet to Yovanovitch during the public hearing, and asked for her reaction.

Schiff told Yovanovitch that Trump had previously threatened her, and “now the president in real time is attacking you. What effect do you think that has on witnesses willingness to come forward and expose wrong doing?”

“Well, it’s very intimidating,” Yovanovitch said.

“Designed to intimidate, is it not?” Schiff said, then added, “Some of us hear take witness intimidation very, very seriously.”
