WATCH IT: Secretly Recorded Hours-Long Footage of Dinner With President Trump Uncovered; “GET RID OF HER”


The full video of an April 2018 meeting where President Trump told associates that he wanted then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch fired has been released

“Get rid of her. Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it,” Trump is heard saying.

ABC News first reported on the recording, made during a meeting at the Trump International Hotel in Washington that included Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman – former Rudy Giuliani associates who have since been indicted.

Parnas attorney Joseph Bondy provided the tape.

“Given its importance to the national interest, we decided to release this recording in a manner intended to ensure equal public access, and in an effort to provide clarity to the American people and the Senate as to the need to conduct a fair trial, with witnesses and evidence,” Bondy said in a statement to Fox News.



  1. So after the president is informed that his foriegn minister is going around telling everyone that the president is going to be impeached, he instructs that Yovanovitch be fired?
    That is somehow a problem?
    The media will never report the first part of the conversation!

  2. I have no patience to listen to an hours long video. Can someone summarize for me?
    What’s the issue with a president firing an ambassador??
    They serve at his pleasure.
    That’s the only criteria.
    If he doesn’t like her bam! She is gone big deal

  3. One has to question the level of security where such a video could be captured. Reminds me when someone recorded Mitt Romney’s private election strategy meeting and released it. In any case, the caption on the youtibe video dates this to a year before she was actually fired.

  4. If there’s nothing to impeach him over then that in and of itself is impeachable! There’s nothing substantive so let’s impeach for nothing!

  5. Other than Parnes and Rudy G repeating the same phony story about Ambassador Yovanovitch being anti-trump, I still haven’t seen ANY evidence she made the comments attributed to her. She is a career foreign service officer and all the Trump appointees at the State Department who have worked with her have said she was apolitical and a great Ambassador. Can anyone reference the verified evidence where she is quoted or recorded as having made these comments?
    And yes, the Trumpkpof has absolute legal authority to fire ANY ambassador w/o having to give a reason but here the phony reason they made up only feeds the allegations about the other stuff going on.


    POTUS isn’t obligated to keep anyone from a previous administration. She serves at the pleasure of the president and as soon as that isn’t a pleasure, she’s done. She said as much in her testimony and also gave indications that she’s farbitirt about it

  7. Is this the same Lev Parnas Trump claimed never to have known?

    So what we have is transcript of the phone call, first person accounts, statements from worried trump staff, verbatim quotes from meetings, disastrous on air appearances by trump and mulvanely almost admitting to the quid pro quo. His lawyer traveling to ukraine for a scripted interview with a corrupt politician to defend their actions, a flipped henchman and now an hour long audio recording

    Republicans with fingers in ears: LALALALA i cant hear you, fake news, bad media, everyone’s lying! We won’t have witnesses speaking and we wont be impartial jurors!

  8. The sad thing is, when listening to the conversation, the way they just suck up to Trump. Laughing at every joke, cheering him on, its so blatantly obvious, and the gullible narcissist actually believes they find him so smart and funny.

    All it took was some shady businessmen to say the Ukrainian ambassador was appointed by the Clinton’s, and supported impeachment and Trump impulsively fires her.

    He didn’t even make an attempt to verify the information or what ramifications her firing could have.

  9. y2r: Yovanovitch has served under Republican and Democratic administrations. She is clearly not an Obama hack.

    Yes, Trump has the authority to fire her or any other ambassador. So, why did he do it?

  10. Pathetic, just pathetic. There’s something that fit into their narrative and this is news? I don’t see the crime here, just the president doing president things. Next thing you know they’ll be a secret video of him talking to Giuliani and the headline “Giuliani working with Trump!”
