little donny is now attempting witness intimidation against former ambassador Yovanovitch by tweeting a personal attack directly in the middle of her testimony. If little donny's lawyers were smart, they ground him and take his phone privileges away.

Trump live tweets attack on impeachment witness during her hearing. She called it 'very intimidating.'

Ousted US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch directly pushed back on Friday against the allegations leveled against her by President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, while a tweet from the President attacking Yovanovitch during the hearing sparked a real-time response and new allegations from Democrats of witness intimidation.

Trump tweeted as Yovanovitch’s testimony was underway that “everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad,” which prompted a response minutes later from House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, who allowed Yovanovitch to respond to the tweet and charged that it was “designed to intimidate” her and other witnesses.

“Now the President in real time is attacking you,” Schiff said. “What effect do you think that has on other witnesses’ willingness to come forward and expose wrongdoing?”

“It’s very intimidating,” Yovanovitch said.

The real-time back-and-forth playing out both over Twitter and in the House hearing room added a new layer of intrigue to the second House impeachment hearing, in which Yovanovitch testified that she was removed from her post after a “campaign of disinformation” and being told the President had lost confidence in her.
