BREAKING: Marie Yovanovitch Retires from State Department

Multiple sources have confirmed that Marie Yovanovitch, former U.S ambassador to Ukraine has retired from the State Department.

Per Michelle Kelemen, Marie Yovanovitch, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine until last spring when she was ousted following a disinformation campaign by the president’s private lawyer, is retiring — not resigning.

Last week, a newly surfaced recording appeared to reveal President Trump talking about former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and ordering her to be fired.

“Get rid of her!” a voice that sound like Trump says “Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.”
