‘Take Her Out’: Recording Reveals Trump Demanding Ouster of Yovanovitch Directly to Parnas—Man He Claims Not to Know

An audio recording reviewed by ABC News captured President Donald Trump demanding the ouster of then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during a 2018 dinner with a group of associates that included Lev Parnas, the indicted businessman Trump has repeatedly claimed not to know. “Get rid of her!” Trump said in the recording, ABC reported Friday. “Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. Okay? Do it.” The president’s outburst came after Parnas, an associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, recommended that Trump fire Yovanovitch. Parnas, according to ABC, told Trump in the recording that the ambassador was “basically walking around telling everybody, ‘Wait, he’s gonna get impeached, just wait.’” “The biggest problem there, I think where we need to start is we gotta get rid of the ambassador,” Parnas said. “She’s still leftover from the Clinton administration.” A copy of the recording is now in the possession of federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, ABC reported.

This is utterly deranged, and [Betsy DeVos] should resign.” —Jamil Smith, Rolling Stone
