New impeachment evidence made public on Tuesday suggests former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch may have been surveilled. This evidence was handed over to Congress by Lev Parnas, a Rudy Giuliani associate who has been charged with funneling foreign money into U.S. elections. Parnas turned over text messages he exchanged with Robert Hyde, a Trump supporter now running for a House seat in Connecticut. Hyde told him there were people watching Yovanovitch in Kyiv, who were "willing to help if we/you would like a price." Yovanovitch has testified she was warned that Giuliani and his associates "had plans" to "do things, including to me." Parnas also submitted a letter Giuliani sent to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Giuliani requested a meeting with Zelensky, and said he did so with President Trump's "knowledge and consent."
