WATCH: Amb. Yovanovitch said putting another ambassador in charge of Ukraine was ‘unusual’

In a heated exchange with Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio, Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, testified that it was “unusual” for the U.S. ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, to be put in charge of Ukraine policy. While trying to answer the question about Sondland, she was cut off by Turner, at one point telling the former ambassador “Not on my time, you’re done.” Yovanovitch, who was ousted from her position after a smear campaign engineered by Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuilani, testified before the House Intelligence Committee heard testimony on Nov. 15 as part of the impeachment probe against Trump.
