Former US Secretary of State and failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lashed out at President Donald Trump for his recent tweets about US ex-envoy to Ukraine Maria Yovanovitch, calling it ''witness intimidation''.
Witness intimidation is a crime, no matter who does it. Full stop.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 15, 2019
However, users on Twitter rushed to remind Clinton of her own misdemeanors, including the devastating wars in the Middle East, as well as supposed corruption crimes and the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The liberal establishment and Democrat elite really do think enough Americans are so ignorant, that they can fabricate a basis for impeachment, and sell it to the citizens. They are angry that at least 70 million voters are not gullible and ignorant; and can indeed discern a lie.— Allen Sutton (@StewardshipAmer) November 15, 2019
@HillaryClinton Doesn't Intimidate Witnesses, She Has Them Suicide'd— Shakes MaGee (@MageeShakes) November 15, 2019
Remember when you used to cast your husbands victims off as obsessed or loose moraled? And try to castigate them publicly, intimidating them with your political power and money?— Styxhexenhammer666 (@Styx666Official) November 15, 2019

Impeachment Hearing Against Trump
Trump's comments on Yovanovitch were read out loud by Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) during the House impeachment hearing on 15 November, claiming it was part of a "witness intimidation" campaign.
In a serious of recent tweets, Trump criticised Yovanovitch for her performance during the impeachment hearing against him and defended his decision to replace her at the post back in May.
Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2019
The impeachment inquiry against President Trump was launched on 24 September over a whistleblower complaint that the President allegedly put pressure on the Ukranian president Volodymir Zelensky to investigate into potential corruption dealings of Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine. It turned out later, however, that the information provided by the so-called whistleblower was ''something they heard from somebody else''.
Right from the start, Donald Trump has dismissed the impeachment inquiry against him as another ''witch hunt'' and insists that pure hearsay cannot serve as the basis for impeachment.
