Rep. André Carson, D-Ind., questioned Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, in a public hearing as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Carson asked Yovanovitch why it was important to have a nonpartisan career in the foreign service. “Because what we do is inherently nonpartisan. It is about our national security interests,” Yovanovitch said. The impeachment probe centers around a July phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Yovanovitch has testified that she was forced out of her position after Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, engineered a smear campaign against her.
