The U.S. State Department will do everything it needs to do to determine if former U.S. ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was under threat in Ukraine, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a radio interview on Friday,

Documents released this week indicated Lev Parnas, a Ukraine-born U.S. citizen, helped U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani investigate presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. They also showed Parnas was also involved in monitoring Yovanovitch's movements before Trump removed her in May. Pompeo also said in the same interview that he has never met or communicated with Parnas.
