Former US ambassador to Kyiv Marie Jovanovic, despite the White House’s refusal to cooperate with Democrats in the investigation of the impeachment case to President Donald Trump, will still testify in the House of Representatives on October 11. About this, with reference to the assistant to one of the congressmen, reports the Washington Post.





“Jovanovic and her lawyer are on board,” the source said.

According to the publication, congressmen want to ask Jovanovic questions about her interaction with Trump’s lawyer Rudolf Giuliani, Trump himself and other people involved in the investigation.

Earlier it became known that US President Donald Trump recalled the United States Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Jovanovic, because of complaints that she impeded the investigation of former Vice President Joseph Biden.

In a July telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, a transcript of which was published by the White House last week, Trump confirmed that he had recalled Jovanovic because he was very unhappy with her. “Former United States Ambassador to Ukraine, a woman, an unpleasant person, I wanted you to know that,” Trump said. Jovanovic prematurely completed its work in Ukraine in May of this year. On October 11, she will testify on the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives of the US Congress in connection with a telephone conversation between the two leaders.
