FOIA to State Seeking Records Related to the Recall of the Career Civil Servant Ambassador to Ukraine

FOIA to State seeking records related to the recall of Ambassador Yovanovitch, a career official, from Ukraine. Ambassador Yovanovitch was recalled just before the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, announced that he would undertake an effort to convince the Ukrainian president-elect to undertake investigations that could benefit President Trump politically.




On Sept. 20, 2019, American Oversight asked that this FOIA request be processed on an expedited basis. The request was made in light of news on Sept. 19 that an intelligence community whistleblower complaint relates to President Donald Trump’s communications with the Ukrainian government.
