Friday morning, during the second day of public impeachment hearings, Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch -- whom Donald Trump recalled after a concerted smear campaign by Rudy Giuliani and his associates -- testified in front of the Intelligence Committee.

About an hour into Yovanovitch's testimony, during which she expressed her feeling "threatened" by Donald Trump's comments to the Ukrainian President that she was "going through some things," Trump took to Twitter to try to counter her testimony, saying:


"Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad."

Chairman Adam Schiff read the tweet to Yovanovitch in real time and she responded:

"I don't think I have such powers, not in Mogadishu and Somalia and not in other places.""I actually think that where I've served over the years I and others have demonstrably made things better, you know, for the US as well as for the countries that I've served in."

You can watch her response below:

Adam Schiff later called it "witness intimidation in real time by the President of the United States."

People felt she was quite impressive in the moment.

Hillary Clinton weighed in on Twitter, echoing that yes, this was in fact witness intimidation by the President of the United States.

People joined in the chorus.

People are calling for Trump to be held accountable for actively berating a witness to his 66 million followers as she testified on national television.

Trump later diverted to tweeting in defense of his former advisor, Roger Stone, who was convicted on Friday on seven criminal counts. One of them was for witness tampering.
