Natasha Bertrand: "Um holy sh*t-This could explain why Yovanovitch was moved out of Ukraine so quick



Natasha Bertrand ✔ @NatashaBertrand

Um holy sh*t. This certainly makes it sound like Parnas and co. were actively tracking Yovanovitch's movements. This could explain why Yovanovitch was moved out of Ukraine so quickly.

40. I can see that one - it's the Courant one from today I can't. But the Beast seems to confirm it

In one exchange from March 2019, Robert F. Hyde, a Trump donor and Republican Congressional candidate whose involvement in the Ukraine saga has not been previously detailed, sent texts to Parnas that implied he had access to people spying on Yovanovitch in Kyiv, according to the newly released documents.
...
A photo of Hyde on Parnas’ phone matches that of the Connecticut-based Republican running for U.S. House, and Parnas’ attorney, Joseph A. Bondy, confirmed to The Daily Beast that is indeed the same Hyde. Up until this point, Hyde was best-known for an offensive tweet about Sen. Kamala Harris that drew widespread condemnation.

Reached for comment on the text messages by The Daily Beast on Tuesday night, Hyde texted, “Bull Schiff is a giant b*tch.”

https://www.courant.com/politics/hc-pol-who-is-robert-hyde-20200114-pkrvqm2q3ngwtcrjywut4s7fzq-story.html
Robert F. Hyde, a Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Connecticut, surfaced in House Intelligence Committee documents released Tuesday.

The documents, released on the eve of the House vote on the articles of impeachment, contained a series of messages between Lev Parnas about former Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. Parnas is a Soviet-born associate of Rudy Giuliani who acted as a conduit in the campaign to pressure Ukrainian officials to investigate Hunter Biden.

In the messages to Parnas, Hyde apparently wrote, "Wow. Can’t believe Trumo [sic] hasn’t fired this bitch,” referring to Yovanovitch.

Who is Robert F. Hyde?
Hyde is 40 and a resident of Simsbury and a Republican who is running for Congress in Connecticut’s 5th District. He is a relative unknown who hopes to unseat Rep. Jahana Hayes, a Democrat. He could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.

42. Thanks. Wonder how he got involved?

Robert F. Hyde is an U.S. Marine Corps Iraqi Freedom war veteran and Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District.

Robert is a post-9/11 war veteran who enlisted while attending CCSU because of duty and service to country. After serving eight years in the United States Marine Corps and serving in the Iraqi theater as a security detail during the peak of the fight, Robert then left the service – but never left his commitment – and established a small business headquartered in Avon, CT. The small business didn’t stay “small” long and quickly grew to over 100 employees as a full-service construction firm (fun fact: Robert F. Hyde’s firm helped build the Farmington, CT, home of Curtis James Jackson III, otherwise known as 50 Cent; some say Mr. Hyde has cross-over appeal).

but he runs a construction firm in Connecticut.

(though he did his best to smear Adam Schiff: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/craigsilverman/coordinated-pro-trump-facebook-pages , and tried to name the whistleblower)

31. Chris Hayes: "One part of the Ukraine story that's never *quite* made sense..."

Chris Hayes ✔ @chrislhayes

One part of the Ukraine story that's never *quite* made sense to me is the air of menace direct at Amb. Yovanovitch that's always kind of unspecified and never spelled out. Obviously getting fired because you stood in the way of a political hit job sucks, but it's more than that.

Trump famously says of Yovanovitch on the call "she's gonna go through some stuff," but I've never understood what he was implying. Professional sanction? Termination from the State Department?

And then Yovanovitch herself says that Ukrainians were telling her that her security was at risk. Not just that, when she gets recalled by State, she's told that for security reasons she has to get the very next plane back to DC.

But I honestly never understood why.

I have no idea what to make of the validity of the new text messages shared by House Intel. Maybe it's just people talking tough and bs'ing.

BUT!

the texts do appear to suggest that Yovanovitch's every movement was being monitored by an associate of Parnas. That her computer(!) and phone (!) were being surveilled. That there was some consideration of maybe...kidnapping her? It's really hard to tell.

But the whole thing feels extremely menacing and threatening and maybe sheds some light on why Yovanovitch herself experienced this period as full of menace and threats.

Also, it's REALLY hard for me to understand why Parnas' own lawyers shared these texts if they show what they appear to show.

The removal of Yovanovitch was always a sign this was a real conspiracy in pursuit of an illicit end, not a case of mere haphazard, fitfully-expressed wishes of Trump. Yovanovitch stood in the way of effectuating the conspiracy. And she was removed at the direction of Trump.

35. This is truly horrifying.

The way I read it, Ms. Yovanovitch was told to get out on the next plane because there were others who got wind of this and feared for her life.

He had both reporters on too (Bertrand and Woodruff) who have posted text exchanges today amd are in this thread. Woodruff said Hyde texted her tonight and didn't deny what he wrote or regret what he did.

earlier in their offices that Rachel read it in solitude while Chris started to run from his office, down the hall to Rachel's staff and was yelling, "Can you believe this? Is this for real?". I can picture what the various Dems and GOP were doing when they heard this news.

And now, I'm wondering -- how is that fucking moron in the WH going to try to spin this one ???

Wouldn't you just love to be a fly on the wall of the offices of Pelosi/Schumer/Biden/etc right now ?

THAT's exactly what needs to happen.

Bet all our Democratic lawmakers know about this by now - D.C. must've been buzzing this evening.

They MUST find a way because we know the DOJ will not be investigating.

is the shock before outrage hits. There are people in DC who have known about this for months on end and said nothing, if not rallied to push against any clue that the rot runs this deep.

I am just so grateful Marie Yovanovitch made it home in one piece.
