Multiple Fox News personalities speculated that President Trump’s insulting tweet toward former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine could result in witness tampering and witness intimidation charges.
The president denigrated the former ambassador while she was testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Friday morning. While she was on Capitol Hill, Trump tweeted that, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go?” He also pointed out that administration officials serve at the pleasure of the president.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff read the tweet aloud during the hearing and asked Yovanovitch to respond to it.
