I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

'Take her out': tape appears to catch Trump demanding removal of Ukraine ambassador – live
  • On recording Trump calls for ousting of Marie Yovanovitch
  • Impeachment managers will finish presenting opening arguments today
  • Next Trump’s lawyers will be given up to 24 hours to begin their defense
  • Help us cover the critical issues of 2020. Consider making a contribution

The recording reviewed by ABC News, which appears to include Trump calling for the removal of then-US ambassador to Ukraine Maria Yovanovitch, was reportedly made by Igor Fruman.

Fruman is a former associate of Rudy Giuliani who has been indicted on campaign-finance charges, and another one of his associates, Lev Parnas, has turned over documents related to Trump’s impeachment to House Democrats.

During the conversation, several of the participants can be heard laughing with the President. At another point, the recording appears to capture Trump praising his new choice of Secretary of State, saying emphatically: ‘Pompeo is the best.’ But the most striking moment comes when Parnes and the President discuss the dismissal of his ambassador to Ukraine.

Parnas appears to say: ‘The biggest problem there, I think where we need to start is we gotta get rid of the ambassador. She’s still left over from the Clinton administration,’ Parnas can be heard telling Trump. ‘She’s basically walking around telling everybody ‘Wait, he’s gonna get impeached, just wait,’ he said. (Yovanovitch actually had served in the State Department since the Reagan Administration.)

ABC News has reviewed a recording of Trump calling for the removal of then-US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, a year before she was recalled from Kyiv over what she called “unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives.”

The president appears to have been recorded at a small 2018 gathering that included Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two former associates of Rudy Giuliani who have been indicted on campaign-finance charges and implicated in the Ukraine controversy.

The recording appears to contradict statements by President Trump and support the narrative that has been offered by Parnas during broadcast interviews in recent days. Sources familiar with the recording said the recording was made during an intimate April 30, 2018 dinner at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Trump has said repeatedly he does not know Parnas, a Soviet-born America who has emerged as a wild card in Trump’s impeachment trial, especially in the days since Trump was impeached.

South Africa v England: fourth Test, day one – live!

“Come on,” says Chris Bull. “Let’s at least wait until we have the full facts before we decide to spout forth on this incident. Firstly, what on earth did this ‘fan’ say to Stokes, if anything. Was it abusive? If it was, then one could have sympathy. I don’t personally agree with the idea that professional sportsman are fair game to be personally abused by ‘paying spectators’.

“People talking about lengthy bans really need to get a grip. And Geoff Wignall [16:24] clearly has some metaphorical myopia when it comes to Stokes. He did absolutely nothing unsporting in the WC final, how on earth could anyone think that is fair comment.”

The Stokes story is being covered from the Wanderers by my colleague Chris Stocks.
