Ukraine's interior ministry has said it is opening a criminal investigation into the possible illegal surveillance of Marie Yovanovitch while she was the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.

LOL...only Trump!!! The most hilarious thing about this is Trump simply could have fired the Ambassador. No reason even needed.

Instead he opts to go this route with his "thugs". Well done Mr. President.

You got your Ukraine investigation.

Wasn't there a challenge to define irony?

Irony? Karma? Divine justice?

Good thing the Ukrainians are investigating, eh?:

Kaitlan Collins @kaitlancollins (CNN WH Correspondent)

The State Department hasn't replied to multiple questions about the possibility Marie Yovanotich was under surveillance. They aren't commenting on whether they'll cooperate with Ukraine's investigation, whether they'll open their own investigation, or even addressing it at all.

Parnas seemed to indicate he didn't think the Ambassador was under surveillance. And that the guy texting it was basically "a drunk".

Again, he came across as very believable.

This is NOT going to go down well at the White House, not when they wouldn't even open an investigation into Joe Biden and his son.

Well they didn't announce an Investigation into Biden.

But they did announce one into Trump.

Oh the Irony.

This is the investigation Trump instigated.

Karma was swift!

Whey all da righties is?

This should supercharge the need for witnesses in the Senate Trial.

Hey! That's NOT the favor Trumpy asked for!!!

What gives?

Ukraine tired of being toyed with by the Mobster-in-Chief?

And what's the deal with them Russian thugs? Characters right out of a Batman comic book. Humpy minions.

Could Humpy act more blatantly like a freaking mobster? Holy moly.

You f*** around enough, and eventually you get pushback. Trump and Rudy Colludy are in so deep it's not even funny. Not that the Trump Contingent will care, no matter what turns up.

Rudy G. will blame the Bidens for this in about 3...2...1...

There are so many new allegations coming out that it's hard to keep track. Maybe this has already been reported, but this is a new article from TPM: talkingpointsmemo.com

The lead reads:

Former Rudy Giuliani amigo Lev Parnas may have revealed a staggering scandal on Wednesday, with Ukrainian gas billionaire Dmytro Firtash at the center.

The allegation is this: Trump and his legal team offered to have federal foreign bribery charges against Firtash dropped if the oligarch, described by federal prosecutors as an "upper-echelon" associate of the Russian mafia, helped Trump discredit the Mueller investigation and Joe Biden.

I'm sure this will result in another "perfect" phone call to ask Ukraine to help root out corruption!
