The release of the faux impeachment investigation hearings today by Rep. Adam Schiff were calculated. He released the full transcript and a curated selective transcript of Marie Yovanovitch. The curated excerpts were introduced with narrated context for the readers, omitting the factual background. Over the 300 page transcript of Marie Yovanovitch many alarming statements with one take away was most alarming. Her self proclaimed gatekeeper status between the Prosecutor General of the Ukraine and U.S. Acting AG and AG of the United States of America. That is not common practice and explicitly violates the US-Ukraine 1999 Treaty.
Firstly, during her salty, vague, and NON FACT based, but almost 99% hearsay based “testimony” she used the phrasing “I think” over 150 times. She made it clear that she had heard at the end of 2018 (before William Barr was nominated or shortly after but not confirmed), that Rudy Giuliani and other officials (U.S. prosecutors) were investigating things in Ukraine. In early 2019, Lutsenko, Prosecutor General of the Ukraine, wished for his team to travel to the United States and meet with the Attorney General who at the time was AAG Matt Whitaker. Post February 2019, it was AG William Barr. She denied them both visas.
In essence, she didn’t deny the visas or the meetings she just delayed them by not responding to the requests in a timely fashion. That is when Prosecutor General Lutsenko reached out to her asking questions. Corrupt cronie Marie Yovanovich then told the Prosecutor General that he is not allowed direct contact with the Attorney General. This is in direct BREACH of the 1999 Treaty the United States and Ukraine have in respects to communicating information about crimes.
Yovanovich was claiming that she was disallowing Ukrainian Justice Officials access to their U.S. counterparts because she “felt” they were going to spread falsehoods about her. This wasn’t testimony, this is what she thinks he was going to do based on hearsay 2nd, 3rd, or even 100th removed that may or may not have known what the Ukrainian Justice Department wanted to share (highlighted in green).
Yovanovich began with an introduction into how Lutsenko was a failure and he did nothing for corruption. Remember this is a U.S. Ambassador saying these things about the Attorney General of another nation. She is determining his accomplishments and his efficacy in his role. Who does she think she is?
She then puts forward a completely FALSE statement that should be blasting on every news station. U.S. Ambassador decides if Ukrainian AG can meet with U.S. AG?
In other words, she wanted to make sure he wasn’t going to be gossiping about her to the AG of the United States so she would “encourage” him to speak to the FBI at the Embassy? The FBI at the Embassy doesn’t have the authority to SCREEN information coming from foreign nations’ justice officials unless explicitly stated. In fact, the U.S. and Ukrainian Treaty clearly states that such gatekeepers are appointed by the Attorney General or the United States of America.
Specifically, Article 2 of the Treaty clearly states it in the following statement.
Article 2 provides for the establishment of Central Authorities and defines Central Authorities for purposes of the Treaty. For the United States, the Central Authority shall be the Attorney General VI or a person designated by the Attorney General. For Ukraine, the Central Authority shall be the Ministry of Justice and the Office of the Prosecutor General. The article provides that the Central Authorities shall communicate directly with one another for the purposes of the Treaty.
Nowhere does it state that the U.S. Embassy or the Ambassador there have ANY authority to discuss, exchange, and or deny access to information regarding ongoing criminal investigations. Yovanovich BROKE the law. Not only did she break the law, she did so for personal gain. Below is Schiff’s intro and push to her statement downplaying actual violations, crimes, and impersonating someone of authority to deny access to, or control access to the Attorney General. If anything, her testimony should find her guilty of treason because she didn’t even have quasi-official authority to behave, refuse, and dictate to foreign officials procedures that are outside of that in the TREATY WITH UKRAINE ON MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS.
It seems that Marie assumed the role of GATEKEEPER for former AAG Whitaker and AG Barr, claiming that the FBI in Ukraine would have to SCREEN information before they would even consider their communications with the Acting Attorney General or Attorney General. Having been a Foreign Service Officer for so long, she knows that what she did was conduct that warrants termination and even constitutes ineligibility to pension, as it may be a felony. Her actions of preventing, hindering, or delaying the execution of any law of the United States, THE TREATY is considered a seditious activity and it would include all those at the Embassy involved with such actions under 18 U.S. Code § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy.

In fact, Yovanovitch claims to have best intentions for this circumvention, but even her testimony indicates that SELF PRESERVATION was her intention and motivating factor. Lutsenko had attempted multiple times to communicate with the Department of Justice in regards to the ongoing criminal investigation UKRAINE was conducting involving U.S. and Ukrainian officials.
We know Mueller didn’t request any information so we assumed that the FBI in the Ukraine had been given instructions to review materials to see if they interested Mueller and then discuss with the Department of Justice. It was odd since the materials were about the Ukraine and not Russia.Ukranian One News Channel (March 03, 2018)
The local news channel was referring to a New York Times article that claimed that Senate Democrats were complaining that Ukrainian DOJ counterparts were not working with Mueller. That turned out to be false.

If you ask me, the questions being asked are rehearsed and vague. This isn’t even testimony, so we reached out to our reliable House Democrat sources last week and one said:
The “testimony” of those Rep Adam Schiff is calling forward is being coordinated. They are all exchanging communication between each other. I think it’s wrong, but who do you tell? We all have bills to pay and all need our jobs.House Democrat Staffer
From the looks of things, our exclusive sources share the same sentiment. They are lying and obstructing the process. Not just by making the rules up as they go, but by providing scripted questions and scripted appearances. The whistleblower, aka Adam Schiff, must be charged with U.S. Code § 2385 since he is advocating and orchestrating to overthrow a duly elected government, our government.
