On January 14, 2020, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Committee on Foreign Affairs provided additional evidence to the Committee on the Judiciary to be included as part of the official record that will be transmitted to the Senate along with the Articles of Impeachment. The announcement of the new evidence notes that the new materials were produced to the Intelligence Committee by Lev Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani, pursuant to a subpoena served on him on October 10, 2019.
It appears from this newly released materials that Ambassador Yovanovitch was under surveillance in Kyiv. To what end, that’s something the Senate needs to find out if its members do find their spines anytime soon.
The WhatsApp exchange in these documents is dated March 2019. Ambassador Yovanovitch’s last day in Ukraine was May 20, 2019.

It's not entirely clear who Robert F. Hyde is, but there is a GOP congressional candidate in Connecticut by that name, whose twitter handle is @rfhyde1 & who has been photographed with LEV PARNAS & RUDY GIULIANI (&, separately, TRUMP). https://t.co/Vf6wyIGn1h pic.twitter.com/TBQCmTb1ue

Yovanovitch's testimony from November 15th:
"She said, 'I don't know, but this is about your security. You need to come home immediately.
'You need to come home on the next plane.'
And I said, 'Physical security? I mean, is there something going on here in the Ukraine?'" https://t.co/WcihdwDvEm
