1. SOUNDBITE: (English) Daniel Goldman, Democratic Counsel:
"Now, you testified in your opening statement that you had left Ukraine by the time of the July 25th call between President Trump and President Zelenskiy. When was the first time that you saw the call record for this phone call?"
3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Marie Yovanovitch, Former Ambassador to Ukraine
"When it was released publicly at the end of September, I believe.
(Goldman: And prior to reading that call record, were you aware that President Trump had specifically made reference to you in that call?)
No. (Goldman: Now, what was your reaction to learning that?)
I was shocked. Absolutely shocked and devastated, frankly. (Goldman: What do you mean by devastated?)
I was shocked and devastated that I would feature in a phone call between two heads of state in such a manner. Where President Trump said that I was bad news to another world leader and that I would be 'going through some things'. So I was, it was, it was a terrible moment. A person who saw me actually reading the transcript said that the color drained from my face. I think I even had a physical reaction. I think, even now, words kind of fail me."
5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Daniel Goldman, Democratic Counsel:
"The next excerpt when the president references you? A short one. But he said, well, she's going to go through some things. What did you think when President Trump told President Zelenskiy and you read that you were going to go through some things?"
6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Marie Yovanovitch, Former Ambassador to Ukraine
"I didn't know what to think, but I was very concerned.
(Goldman: What were you concerned about?)
She's gonna go through some things. It didn't sound good. It sounded like a threat. (Goldman: Did you feel threatened?) I did."
Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch says she was told by a colleague that “the color drained from my face” as she read a rough transcript of a phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in which Trump said Yovanovitch was “going to go through some things.”
The rough transcript was released in September, months after Yovanovitch was ousted from the job at Trump’s direction. She told lawmakers at the second House impeachment hearing Friday that it felt like a vague threat.
Yovanovitch said it was a “terrible moment” and that words fail her even now to describe it.
She said it was hard to believe the president would talk about any ambassador like that to a foreign head of state.
