It's absolutely comical how Trump acts and uses phrases that could come out of a mobster movie.

From the article:

Mr Trump told his counterpart: "Well, she's [Ms Yovanovitch] going to go through some things."

This is like, "Hey, nice house you got here, it'd be a shame if something were to happen to it".

The most depressing thing is that 32-33% of the American public are going to vote for Trump again and there's a real possibility that he'll win reelection.

edit - Wow, here's more from the article:

The career diplomat said that when she sought advice from the US Ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, a Trump donor, he suggested Ms Yovanovitch tweet praise of the president.

"You need to go big or go home," Mr Sondland allegedly told her. Ms Yovanovitch testified that she did not think she could follow the advice.

Ms Yovanovitch added that Mr Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani had begun efforts to discredit her in late 2018 as he effectively ran a shadow foreign policy on Ukraine.
