Yovanovitch laments 'amoral' and visionless state of the State Department at award ceremony

In her first public comments since the impeachment hearings, retired Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch told students at Georgetown University Wednesday that her former employer is currently in a shambles. “Right now, the State Department is in trouble,” she said in an acceptance speech for the Trainor Award, celebrating her decades-long work as a U.S. diplomat. “Senior leaders lack policy vision, moral clarity and leadership.” Yovanovitch suggested the department's current emphasis on sizing up monetary contributions country by country is both shortsighted and counterproductive to the nation's long-term foreign policy goals. “It’s not about a handout for foreign friends; it’s about enlightened self-interest,” she explained. “For example, it’s hard to see how cutting funds to the World Health Organization in the middle of the coronavirus crisis keeps Americans safer.” Unfortunately, this is the type of concept that requires an explanation under the Trump-era leadership of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Chris Sale believes pitchers will retaliate against Astros for cheating

No Houston Astros players were disciplined by Major League Baseball for their role in the team’s sign-stealing scheme, but there’s a growing sense that opposing pitchers may try to punish them this upcoming season. While he didn’t say he would partake, Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale believes Astros hitters could face an increased risk of being plunked in 2020. Sale was asked on Sunday about the possibility of pitchers throwing at Astros players, and he said players are “welcome to handle things how they want.” The left-hander insists he is strictly focused on trying to help the Red Sox win another World Series, but he wouldn’t be surprised if pitchers “do what they feel is necessary” when facing Houston. For what it’s worth, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in his interview with ESPN’s Karl Ravich on Sunday that he will send a memo to the league discouraging retaliation against the Astros. Manfred also indicated that there could be harsher punishments than usual if those situations arise, which led to cr
