There’s a shocking letter between former Trump attorney John Dowd and current Trump attorney Jay Sekulow confirming that Trump signed off on Dowd representing Parnas and Fruman.
Former White House ethics attorney Walter Shaub tied the “stalker-ish” behavior back to Trump himself:
Ambassador to Ukraine, Trump cryptically told the Ukrainian president that "she's going to go through some things."
Onetime federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti also wondered just how deep Trump was in the efforts to track and take out Yovanovitch.

Appears Parnas/Hyde are talking re. Yovanovitch — Not a ton of context, but on face of it, sounds stalker-ish.
– "They are willing to help if we/you would like a price… guess you can do anything in the Ukraine with money."

Um holy sh*t. This certainly makes it sound like Parnas and co. were actively tracking Yovanovitch's movements. This could explain why Yovanovitch was moved out of Ukraine so quickly. https://t.co/4rBRB06ZGN pic.twitter.com/5Gc8WcGPih

Four months after these goons stalked the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Trump cryptically told the Ukrainian president that "she's going to go through some things." https://t.co/U3yg3mCLtb

Unless the president was part of the scheme against the Ambassador. The public deserves to know whether Trump was involved in this plot against the U.S. Ambassador. https://t.co/yl8trLCudw
