Yovanovitch, who served as ambassador from 2016 to 2019, agreed to taping a statement showing her solidarity with Trump but then decided not to release it, even though her job was under threat, according to extracts from “Lessons From The Edge” that Insider published on Tuesday.

“When I tried the loyalty pledge on for size, I couldn’t make it fit — not if I wanted to keep my integrity intact,” she said.

“Even worse, I thought such a statement was demeaning — and wrong,” Yovanovitch added.

Yovanovitch was recalled from Ukraine over fears among Trump allies that she’d thwart their efforts to dig up dirt on his then-potential Democratic 2020 election rival Joe Biden. Trump’s threat to withhold military aid to Ukraine in exchange for said rumored dirt on Biden led to his first impeachment.
