felt threatened often being ousted from her post and finding out the president had denounced her in a phone call with the ukrainian president take a listen to a portion off a testimonial idea. what did you think when president trent told president selenski and you read that you were going to go through some things i didn't know what to think but i was very concerned were you concerned about. she's going to go through some things it didn't sound good sounded like a threat. did you. feel threatened. i do now during that testimony president trump tweeted about your benefit and it was shown on a screen now he said everywhere on the radio evanovich went turned back as she started off in somalia how did that go then ukraine the new president spoke on favorably about her in my 2nd phone call with him it's a u.s.
is president absolute right to appoint a masochist well that prompted this exchange between the committee chairman and ambassador your bondage and the other person real time is attacking you. what effect do you think that has an other witnesses willingness to come forward and expose wrongdoing well it's very intimidating to dine designed to intimidate is it not. i mean i can't speak to what the president is trying to do but i think the effect is to be intimidating or as let's cross now see washington our correspondent on of assad that he was standing by very close to where those hearings have been taking place all of a give us the key takeaways from marie event of it his opening statements. the memory of on the verge the former ambassador to crane was introduced here in
that hearing the 2nd day of the impeachment hearings on capitol hill as a highly impartial career diplomat was with some 33 years of professional experience as she was deployed to many different countries among them some hardship postings and she was also introduced to someone who was very dedicated to fighting corruption in the countries of her deployment and when she was testifying she made a very disappointing to impression about the fact that she was called back earlier this year from her posting in ukraine without no reason given she then described the role of president trump's private lawyer rudy giuliani a smear campaign as she said against her allegedly allegedly rudy giuliani and president trump are trying to get rid of her as she could have potentially been an obstacle in investigations of ukrainian authorities against president trump's political rival which of course is the democratic candidate for the u.s.
presidency joe biden i want to what we've been seeing today is the president tweeting i mean essentially in real time to discredit the witness the person that he had been accused of waging a smear campaign against could that potentially land the president in even more. right well that was a very bizarre a moment helen when mario was testifying and while she was doing so president trying fired a series of tweets against her directly. making irresponsible for the political situations of countries she was deployed to such as somalia and the chairman of the intelligence committee adam schiff then read those tweets of the president they were then later also put on screens in the hearing room and she was asked how she feels about it and she said she felt intimidated now the speaker of the house nancy
pelosi in a press conference after that made clear that intimidating witnesses is a crime and that could potentially lead to another article of impeachment now if the white house has been playing down the tweet and say he's not witness intimidation but how do you think today's hearing is likely to play out with the public. well if you consider the amount of damning material that's been emerging in recent days by the hearings of course as well as by transcript that were provided then of course you would think that this is a lot of damning material that there was this would play in the hands of the democrats it would strengthen their position that is exactly what they're trying to do with these public hearings to create a shift in momentum in the public opinion but now if you speak to voters in strongholds of president trump and of the in those so-called swing states then you will realize that a lot of people are simply tired of all what's happening here in washington that
the take of many people is that this those are 2 political parties fighting each other in the run up to the 2020. pain and of course it now really remains to be seen how much how big this impact will be and that will certainly be interesting to follow it is just the 2nd day of the impeachment inquiry and there will serve will certainly take some time to see if there will be that shift in momentum that the democrats are urgently hoping for all right our correspondent one of us out in washington thanks all of us is taken up now some of the other stories making news around the world but it is ousted president says he wants to return to the country as soon as possible and is resigned under pressure on sunday he went into exxon in mexico off to weeks of protests prompted by allegations of fraud following his election the interim leader says he may face criminal charges if he returns.
