US President Donald
Trump does not live in peace.
months now, Democrats have threatened him with impeachment.
And now, well-known
Marie Yovanovitch is among the few witnesses against Trump. She is well
remembered in Armenia. For three years (2008-11), the American, who was fluent
in Russian, was in Armenia as the US ambassador, but she could not find a
common language with the Armenians on the main problem: the recognition of
Genocide. So she played along and refused to
call the MedzYeghern — the Turkish Holocaust of
1.5 million Armenians between 1915–23 — a “genocide”, as many diplomats did.
Her stance has been
repeatedly criticized by the Armenian community of the United States, which is
not afraid of political pressure – after all, Yovanovitch received a salary
including their taxes. Later, a confidential report
by Yovanovitch titled “Experience Engaging
Diaspora Communities — Armenia.” Uncovered by WikiLeaks, in which she
criticized the Armenian Diaspora.
So, this ambiguous
lady is now testifying against Trump, accusing him of corruption schemes, for
which she has already received an angry retaliatory tweet.

More and more
questions about Mr Graham are arising.
On his Twitter page, Garo Paylan, a Turkish MP of the Armenian descent, commented on a notorious statement by Turkish President Recep Erdogan in the U.S.
“The Armenian people had lived in this land with other peoples for thousands of years. It (the Armenian people) created civilization in all the cities it lived. However, Erdogan claims Armenians were a nomadic tribe that migrated to other regions. Genocide-denier Erdogan is actually praising genocide,” Paylan said.
