    "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."


    "Taylor also testified that his knowledge of the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymr Zelensky wasn’t first-hand knowledge."

    Wow - that's got to be completely disappointing to / deflating for Pro-coup snowflakes / Democrats.....still no evidence.

    One is starting to think that none of these accusers actually heard anything first hand.

    One is starting to think it is ALL fabricated BS...especially after it has been revealed the 'Whistle Blower's lawyer texted ' The Coup Has Started' back in 2017!

    OOPS: Amb. Taylor’s Awkward Silence in Response to a Question About Hunter Biden Was Very Telling.

    During Wednesday's impeachment hearings, Steve Castor, House Intelligence Committee counsel for the minority, asked Ambassador Taylor a rather simple question about Hunter Biden and his position at Burisma, that he couldn't (or perhaps refused) to answer, resulting in perhaps the most awkward silence I've ever seen in such a hearing.

    [​IMG]


    CASTOR: Ambassador Taylor, do you know whether Hunter Biden offers anything other than the fact that his dad's the former vice president

    AMB. TAYLOR: I don't—

    CASTOR: Or at the time was the vice president.

    AMB. TAYLOR: I have no knowledge of Hunter Biden—

    CASTOR: But you agree it raises questions?

    AMB. TAYLOR: (five seconds of silence)

    Ambassador Taylor is a key witness of House Democrats whose testimony is based not on direct knowledge, but on hearsay. Yet, that he couldn't admit that Hunter Biden being given a position on the board of Burisma (despite no relevant experience, familiarity with the language, and not having anything to offer besides being the son of the vice president) raised serious, legitimate questions is astounding.

    Ambassador Taylor knows the answer, he just couldn't say so because to do so would undermine the very reason this impeachment inquiry is even happening. To admit that Hunter Biden's appointment to the board of Burisma raised questions would justify Trump's belief that an investigation was necessary, and negate this entire sham impeachment.

    But, The American People get it.

    Because none did, they are 'testifying' to 3rd and 4th hand conversations. The Dem's two 'star' witnesses today testified to office water cooler gossip, what a laughable disaster this was for Dem's. :auiqs.jpg:

    The biggest silence of the day was when Ratliff asked both Kent and Taylor what was the impeachable offense. They both, along with their
    attorneys just stared at each other and Ratliff seized the moment and said..."Go on...shout it out!"

    If this is the best the Dems have...they are in deep shit. The former ambassador who is one stupid bitch testifies Friday and then 8 next
    week. I have no doubt we'll see this move onto the Judiciary committee for that circus and they probably will vote for an Articles of
    Impeachment, but that is where it will get very sticky for the dems. Then they will need at least 17 of their "moderate" rookie
    members to vote for impeachment. They may not have that many. Not if the rest of the witnesses are gonna be less than what we
    saw today.

    First a we’re told that the WB can’t believed because he wasn’t on the call and then colonel Vidman surfaced who WAS on the call but Trumpers demand that “second hand testimony” anyway

    now we’re told that current witnesses can’t be believed because THEY were not on the call. too bad that they aren’t testifying to what was in the call but rather actions that occurred elsewhere.

    Of course the State Department at Trump’s direction is refusing to turn over their contemporaneous not and they phones

    and still witnesses are being produced to shoot down every weak defense that the GOP is making

    In order to have someone arrested for a crime you need a witness that saw the person commit the crime, and then you need to have an actual crime.
    1. Trump did not commit a crime, none, nada, zilch, zero, nil
    2. None of the witnesses accused Trump of committing a crime. Trump did nothing illegal, let alone impeachable.

    If the dems push this impeachment farce they will pay in spades in 2020.
