Trump continues to attack Marie Yovanovitch, saying she was 'not an angel'

Mr. Trump made the claim on Fox News' morning show.

The president failed to offer additional microscopic print in regards to the topic.

Marie Yovanovitch, former US ambassador to Ukraine, testifies on November 15.

She was one of 12 witnesses to testify over the last fortnight in the impeachment inquiry, which may seek to remove the president from office for alleged corruption.

"This was not an angel, this woman, okay?"

"This ambassador that everyone says is so wonderful she wouldn't hang my picture in the embassy ok?" Trump said. "She's in charge of the embassy". Rudy didn't say good things, but he wasn't insane about it.

"Frankly, I want a trial", Trump said. It was already 2018 when the pictures of Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were hung, according to State Department officials.

It used to be not the first time the Republican president has attacked Ms Yovanovitch.

The public hearings amounted to a series of devastating blows from witnesses like Yovanovitch, the respected career diplomat who was ousted because she resisted his plan to bully Ukraine into launching partisan investigations into Joe Biden and Democrats.

The lawyer for the whistleblower called for a coup against President Trump previous year.

The president spent a serious a part of Friday's tv interview discussing a conspiracy view that it used to be Ukraine - not Russian Federation - meddling in the United States 2016 presidential election.

The president repeated his claim one day after Fiona Hill, a former Russian Federation adviser on the White House National Security Council, admonished Republicans for pushing unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about Ukrainian interference in the 2016 presidential election. During the call, Mr. Trump called Yovanovitch "bad news". "When I won, all of a sudden they became so nice, they had to make up". "Because she was so wedded in", Trump said on November 22.

She warned elected officials not to promote "politically driven falsehoods" that seek to cast doubt on Russia's alleged interference in USA elections.

"When you're dealing with a corrupt country, Rudy Giuliani's got credentials because of his reputation", the president said.

This comes just after the House Intelligence Committee wrapped up five days of public testimony in the impeachment inquiry. Ultimately senators - specifically Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell - will determine how the Senate trial is conducted.

Still outstanding are the transcripts of depositions taken of Mark Sandy, an Office of Management and Budget official, and Philip Reeker, the diplomat in charge of USA policy for Europe.
