Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday accused former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch of “monitoring” him, as well as other members of the American public, a day after the ousted diplomat called for an investigation into allegations she had been followed by associates of President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani while in Ukraine.
The eldest son of the president also blamed the media for failing to cover Yovanovitch’s own surveillance efforts. The accusation came after the release of documents obtained by the House of Representatives as part of new evidence for the upcoming Senate impeachment trial related to Trump’s July phone call asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s involvement in the country.
She was doing the same to me apparently and other private citizens. Media wouldn’t cover a rogue Ambasador monitoring American citizens... I wonder why??? https://t.co/BvSVJE6wfw— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) January 16, 2020
Yovanovitch told Congress that the Trump admin kneecapped her while the Trump admin contends that they fired her for not wanting to follow the new foreign policy.
“She was doing the same to me apparently and other private citizens. Media wouldn’t cover a rogue Ambasador monitoring American citizens... I wonder why???” Trump Jr. tweeted Wednesday.
He was replying to a message from Dan Bogino, a conservative commentator and former Secret Service agent, which alleged he too was on Yovanovitch’s spy list.
