Latest Impeachment Hearing Has Democrats Clamoring About ‘Quid Pro Quo’

As the President continues to fight back against the wild and untenable “formal impeachment inquiry” being undertaken by the Democrats, a steady stream of witnesses have been appearing on Capitol Hill.

This, despite calls from the White House and the State Department for these individuals to ignore or defy the requests – likely at the behest of the President himself.

Now, in the latest round of questioning, US Diplomat Bill Taylor has painted a damning portrait of the President’s intentions regarding Ukraine.

In a lengthy opening statement to House investigators obtained by The Associated Press, William Taylor described Trump’s demand that “everything” President Volodymyr Zelenskiy wanted, including vital aid to counter Russia, hinged on making a public vow that Ukraine would investigate Democrats going back to the 2016 U.S. election as well as a company linked to the family of Trump’s potential 2020 Democratic rival.

Taylor testified that what he discovered in Kyiv was the Trump administration’s “irregular” back channel to foreign policy led by the president’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and “ultimately alarming circumstances” that threatened to erode the United States’ relationship with a budding Eastern European ally facing Russian aggression.

In a date-by-date account, detailed across several pages, the seasoned diplomat who came out of retirement to take over as charge d’affaires at the embassy in Ukraine details his mounting concern as he realized Trump was trying to put the newly elected president of the young democracy “in a public box.”

While the Democrats seem hellbent on framing Taylor’s comments as the end-all, be-all of the “quid pro quo” conversation, it should be noted that the President himself, normally outspoken, has not yet responded.

Furthermore, outside of the ultra-liberal mainstream media, the news doesn’t seem to be getting as much play, denoting a bit of bias in the reporting.
