Behind her, in a stately House hearing room, members of the media and the public sat riveted as Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, described how she was removed from her post because she was seen as standing in the way of political concessions President Trump wanted to allegedly wrest from the new presidential administration in Kyiv. Among the millions watching on television was Trump himself, who taunted Yovanovitch in a tweet. "Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad," the tweet read, describing postings she'd had throughout her career, including in Somalia.

‘Witness Intimidation': Trump Slimes Ambassador During Impeachment Hearing
As Marie Yovanovitch outlined the smear campaign that President Trump's allies successfully used to oust her as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Trump decided to add to it. 

"Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad," the president tweeted, insisting on his "absolute right" to appoint ambassadors. Yovanovitch had just finished describing the "vague threat" she felt from the president himself, months after his allies derailed a diplomatic career notable for fighting corruption in Ukraine. 

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the point person for the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump, stopped a line of questioning to ask Yovanovitch what the effect would be on her and future impeachment witnesses. "I can't speak to what the president's trying to do," said Yovanovitch, "but I think the effect is to be intimidating."

Amid attacks from Trump, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine testifies to influence from 'foreign corrupt interests'
A former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine testified Friday in the second public impeachment hearing, amid real-time attacks by President Trump himself, that she was the victim of a dishonest smear campaign in which one of the president's personal lawyers worked with corrupt Ukrainian officials to remove her from her position earlier this year. The public hearings are part of an investigation led by Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., into whether the full House should vote on articles of impeachment and recommend to the Senate that it hold a trial to determine whether the president is guilty of "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," as outlined in Article 2, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.

"This Is My Home": Meet the Lead Plaintiff in the Supreme Court Case to Save DACA
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments from three lawsuits demanding the Trump administration preserve Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. The Obama-era program has granted protection from deportation and a work permit to at least 700,000 undocumented people who were brought to the United States as children. The court's conservative majority appeared poised to side with President Trump in ending the program, while some of the court's liberal justices seemed skeptical of Trump's efforts. In September 2017, the Trump administration announced it planned to terminate DACA, arguing the program was "illegal" and "unconstitutional," but three lower courts disagreed and have kept the program alive, thanks to lawsuits filed by California, New York and D.C. Immigrant rights activists have been pushing the Supreme Court to save DACA, with dozens of immigrants with DACA recently taking part in a 16-day, 230-mile march from New York to the steps of the Supreme Court. We speak with Martín Batalla Vidal, the lead plaintiff in the New York federal lawsuit challenging the Trump administration's attempt to terminate DACA, and Trudy Rebert, a staff attorney at the National Immigration Law Center, which also filed suit to block the Trump administration's cancellation of DACA.

"Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young, are far from ‘angels,'" Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, hours before the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear opening arguments in the DACA case[s]. "Some are very tough, hardened criminals." The tweet is in line with Trump's past rhetoric, which frequently employs unsubstantiated characterization of immigrants in general as criminals, and seeks to win support for unpopular actions by demonizing the people who will be impacted by them.
