The Secretary of State stated that he knew nothing about such plans and had never met with Parnassus.
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said that he did not know that the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Jovanovic during her tenure in Kyiv could be monitored. He said this during a radio show with Hag Guit, the transcript of which was made public on Friday, January 17, by the U.S. State Department.
“I’ve never heard anything about it,” Pompeo said when asked if he knew anything about his intentions to monitor Ambassador Marie Jovanovic in Kyiv, according to Rudy Giuliani’s partner Lev Parnassus.
Pompeo also stated that he had “never met” with Parnassus.
The U.S. House Intelligence Committee released the memos and other documents as new evidence in president Trump’s impeachment case. Among other things, it was said that during the cadence in Ukraine of the U.S. Ambassador Marie Jovanovic, she was allegedly illegally tracked and possible interference in the work of her electronic gadgets by private individuals on the orders of U.S. citizens.
Parnassus also said that he witnessed the decision to dismiss the ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Jovanovic.
