U.S. President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said that removing the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine was a crucial part of his effort to dig up dirt on Democrats on behalf of his client. It was stated in The New Yorker's new interview with the President's personal lawyer.

Marie Yovanovitch, the career diplomat who was removed from her post in Kyiv earlier this year, was frustrating his attempts to learn information about Joe Biden from Ukrainian sources, Giuliani said.
"I believed that I needed Yovanovitch out of the way," Giuliani told reporter Adam Entous. "She was going to make the investigations difficult for everybody".
As we reported earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump has tweeted some critical remarks about ex-ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during her testimony in the Congress, which is seen by the Democrats as intimidation of a witness. Reuters informed about this.

“I can’t speak to what the president is trying to do, but I think the effect is to be intimidating,” Yovanowitch replied when asked for her reaction to the tweet. Adam Schiff, who is chairing the hearing in the House Intelligence Committee, noted that “some of us here take witness intimidation very, very seriously.”

Eric Swalwell, Democratic Representative and a member of the committee, told reporters the US President’s attack could be considered for a separate article of impeachment against Trump for obstruction of justice.
