My opinions on government, politics and politicians, are based on almost twenty years of military service. That being said, I would like to make two points.

When I see how those in civilian government roles dis-honor their oaths of office; it quite frankly disgusts me.  If while I was in the military I had openly and publicly leaked comments or put forth rumors, or in any other way criticized my leaders or officers appointed over me, not to mention The President, I would have been subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and would face possible disciplinary action and/or Courts Martial.  Having visited many foreign countries and having worked with many government civilians, I believe that the only difference between the military and the Foreign Service is, that one uses their lives and bullets and the other words to support and defend The Constitution of The United States.  All who serve the United States, military and civilian pledge to support and defend The Constitution.  Some just forget!

In her recent testimony in Congress Ambassador Yavanovich admitted she was coached on what to say surrounding any questions concerning Hunter Biden’s involvement in Barisma Holdings and Ukraine during her previous confirmation hearing.  It seems to me, that what we saw in her performance in the hearings last week was an obvious case of coaching as well.  As a Career Foreign Affairs Officer, her struggling to find the exact words and delay in answering questions, to display unemotional body language and voice, would not be that presented of such a career professional.   When she attempted to present a victimized personality, well, it all just appeared phony, coached, and practiced to me.
