Ukrainian officials applied for visas to come to the United States to deliver evidence that the Obama administration tried to interfere in 2016 election but they never made it because an Obama appointee refused to give them visas.
U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich was a Trump-hater, who was appointed by Obama and later fired by President Trump.
She was a key player in the Deep State. She was given her walking papers in May of this year. Steny Hoyer and Eliot Engel both claimed the firing was political.
And it was, but it was her politics that was the problem, not the president.
US Ambassador Yovanovich, an Obama appointee, was removed from her post in Ukraine early in May 2019.
John Solomon at The Hill reported:
According to interviews with more than a dozen Ukrainian and U.S. officials, Ukraine’s government under recently departed President Petro Poroshenko and, now, Zelensky has been trying since summer 2018 to hand over evidence about the conduct of Americans they believe might be involved in violations of U.S. law during the Obama years.
The Ukrainians say their efforts to get their allegations to U.S. authorities were thwarted first by the U.S. embassy in Kiev, which failed to issue timely visas allowing them to visit America.
The Ukrainian officials were denied their visas to enter the US in 2018.
Corrupt Ambassador Yovanovich was fired by the Trump administration in May 2019 when all of the Ukrainian collusion with the DNC came to light.
It is telling that far left Democrat lawmakers Steny Hoyer and Eliot Engels were most upset with Ambassador Yovanovitch’s removal.

Now, those lawmakers are bringing their concerns into the public. “The White House’s outrageous decision to recall her is a political hit job and the latest in this Administration’s campaign against career State Department personnel,” said Democratic Reps. Steny Hoyer, House majority leader, and Eliot Engel, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, in a joint statement made public Tuesday. “It’s clear that this decision was politically motivated, as allies of President Trump had joined foreign actors in lobbying for the Ambassador’s dismissal.”
