The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a virtual hearing on President Trump’s nominations for several ambassadorial positions, including retired Lieutenant General Keith Dayton to be U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Several members pressed Mr. Dayton on his willingness to report back to the committee on any knowledge of Russian interference. When pressed by Ranking Member Bob Menendez (D-NJ) on whether he would ever refuse to meet with the president’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, Mr. Dayton told the committee, “...I’m not going to commit to that because I believe that as an ambassador I would have the obligation to meet with any U.S. citizen and hear them out if they come.” If confirmed, Mr. Dayton would replace Marie Yovanovitch, who was ousted from her position in 2019. close
