The former US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, testified behind closed doors Friday as part of the Democratic-run impeachment inquiry, giving critical information about her time in Ukraine and abrupt removal earlier this year.

In a 10-page statement obtained by The New York Times and The Washington Post, Yovanovitch defended her tenure and decried the "concerted campaign" to recall her from Ukraine, which she said is tied directly to President Donald Trump. Yovanovitch also rebuked the two associates of Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani who were arrested this week on campaign finance charges that were tied to an effort to get her removed.

The impeachment inquiry is focused on Trump's dealings with Ukraine, which include his effort to pressure the new government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, the temporary holdup of critical US military aid, and Yovanovitch's surprising removal from her diplomatic post.
