Remember that damning impeachment testimony by William Taylor, conducted in secret (like all the other testimony)? Remember how it was going to take down Donald Trump?
Well, guess what? Now that we actually know something about that testimony, it has gone pffft.
From Sean Davis’s article at thefederalist, we have this:
A key Democratic witness against Trump admitted in congressional testimony last month that he was not part of the July 25 phone call between the U.S. and Ukrainian presidents, that he didn’t see a transcript or readout of it until late September when it was declassified and released, and that he has never even spoken to President Donald Trump.
William Taylor, the charge d’affairs of the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, told lawmakers in secret testimony two weeks ago that his opinions about an alleged quid pro quo demanded by Trump were formed largely from conversations with anti-Trump staffers within the diplomatic bureaucracy.
In other words, now that we know what Taylor actually said – instead of relying on leaks from adam schiff and his pals – we find out that he didn’t have any information at all, other then what he heard, second hand, from people who are anti Trump.
Simply stated, as with just about everything adam schiff is involved with, the Taylor story was complete and utter BS.
How can anyone believe a thing that comes from this “man”, or any hearing that he chairs?
