What happened to the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine?

The answer seems to be that Rudy Giuliani happened to her.

Marie Yovanovitch, a career civil servant, was recalled from her posting as U.S. ambassador in Kiev on May 6 — months before she was scheduled to leave.

She officially ended her tenure as ambassador today, becoming the most recent career civil servant to be swept away by political maneuvering.

Early this year, Giuliani began meeting with Ukraine’s top prosecutor in New York and Warsaw.
