This excerpt from Trump’s Zelensky call makes the stalking of Marie Yovanovitch feel twice as creepy

WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 11: Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch arrives at the U.S. Capitol October 11, 2019 in Washington, DC. Yovanovitch was invited to testify behind closed doors to the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees as part of the ongoing impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump.

I’m sure you’ve read the news… oh boy.  According to a new trove of documents supplied by Rudy Giuliani pal Lev Parnas and released Tuesday by the House Intelligence Committee, Trump donor Robert Hyde tracked former U.S. ambassador Marie Yovanovitch’s movements in Ukraine last March.

Two choice messages from Hyde to Parnas:

“They know she’s a political puppet. They will let me know when she’s on the move… They are willing to help if you/we would like a price.”

Okay, that sounds kind of threatening, but …

“Guess you can do anything in Ukraine with money… what I was told.”


So that’s some creepy sh*t, huh? An associate of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer exchanged messages about a U.S. ambassador’s whereabouts with a high-profile Trump donor.

At least it can’t get any creepier than tha … oh, what fresh hell is this?

Yes, in Donald Trump’s deeply incriminating phone conversation with Volodymyr Zelensky, he said of Yovanovitch, “Well, she’s going to go through some things.”

That in itself doesn’t prove much, but damn, it sure sends chills down your spine, doesn’t it?

It almost feels plucked from a screenplay about the mob.

With any other president, that aside might appear totally innocent. And maybe he’s “just” referring to the smear campaign that ultimately ended in Yovanovitch’s ouster (as if that weren’t horrible enough). But this is Donald Trump we’re talking about, and that alone makes this comment eerie as fuck.

Trump has always struck me as the kind of guy who’s watched too many (bad) movies and read far too few (i.e., zero) books. Let’s just hope no one gives him a copy of Saw or The Human Centipede. Because, damn, this sick fuck seems capable of anything.

By the way, while you wait for Trump to claim he doesn’t know Hyde, has never heard of him, and also somehow knows he’s a total lightweight and a loser, take a gander at this:

Isn’t that cute? They kind of look like two Russian nesting dolls, each vying to be the outermost figurine.
