Bombshell messages reveal how Republican candidate for Congress put ambassador to Ukraine under surveillance and passed messages to Rudy Giuliani’s sidekick Lev including how to get her ‘out’

A series of WhatsApp messages released by the House Intelligence Committee appear to show a Trump-backing congressional candidate had the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine ‘under physical surveillance’ in addition to trashing her while communicating with a Rudy Giuliani associate.
In the messages, Trump backer Robert Hyde refers to former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch with the expletives: ‘F*** that b****.’
His exchanges with Giuliani associate Lev Parnas appear to indicate Hyde was monitoring her movements, according to the documents.
‘She under heavy protection outside Kiev,’ Hyde writes in a March 23 message.

‘I know crazy s***’ Parnas responds. ‘My guy thinks maybe FSB,’ responds Hyde, referencing Russian internal security.
As summarized in a letter by House Intel chair Rep. Adam Schiff: ‘Mr. Hyde … sent a series of text messages suggesting that he had Ambassador Yovanovitch under physical surveillance in Kyiv and that ‘They are willing to help if we/you would like a price.’
That referenced an additional message.
‘They are moving her tomorrow,’ Hyde announced March 25. ‘The guys over there asked me what I would like to do and what is in it for them.’
