Skip to comments.Democrat: Top diplomat's testimony on Ukraine is 'sea change' in impeachment probe
Posted on 10/22/2019 11:24:19 AM PDT by be-baw
Democrats emerging Tuesday from the closed-door testimony of the top diplomat to Ukraine were tight-lipped on details but effusive on a central point: William Taylor, they said, was delivering the most damning testimony yet in the Democrats' impeachment investigation into President Trump.
"Without question the most powerful testimony we've heard," said Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.), who sits on the Oversight Committee.
"This testimony is a sea change. I think it could accelerate matters," Lynch continued. "This will, I think, answer more questions than it raises."
Lynch described Taylor, the U.S. chargé d'affaires of Ukraine, as a "meticulous" note-taker who had kept detailed records of his involvement in the months-long effort by Trump and some of his closest allies to pressure Ukrainian leaders to find dirt on Trump's political rivals.
"He indicated that he kept extensive notes on all of this," Lynch said.
Rep. Tom Malinowski (D.N.J.), a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, also suggested Taylor's testimony was supportive of the central allegations facing Trump and his dealings with Ukraine.
"I would say it certainly filled in many of the remaining gaps in the narrative," Malinowski said.
"I would say he remembered some things that previous witnesses have not been able to remember."
When will enough be enough? When will the coup plotters be subject to justice? If the DOJ is fatally compromised, it will fall to patriots to convene peoples’ courts and try the plotters for sedition.
I thought the Demorats were holding impeachment lynching in leakret!
I was thinking the other day....
They did the same thing to Reagan with Iran-Contra.
First he was going to start WW3.
Then he was mentally unstable.
Then it was Iran-Contra.
Absent public hearing, the comittee closed dor testimony is unsubstantiad hear say. It is actually made up garbage
The Democrats in secret in the room are conspiring to overthrow the government and must be executed forthwith
Meeting in secret is enough to convict and execute
IIRC, Yaylor was only in the Trump administration since sometime in June of 2019.
P.S. I think he's whistle blower No. 1.
The guy may have been the most meticulous note taker but he had no idea what to write down.
“Yes, Hillary Clinton did ask the intelligence services of Ukraine for dirt on Trump and they obliged with the Steele dossier. She thanked them profusely as she handed over the payment for the dossier.”
Taylor has only been in the Trump administration since June 2019. Almost like he's a plant. Wonder who recommended him.
No public hearings. No due process. No cross examination of witnesses or documents.
No semblance of fairness or even pretense of following accepted judicial norms.
Its a farce and the country knows it. If the Democrats really had the goods, theyd want it to be transparent and completely above board.
Lynching describes whats going on to a T.
Why do you require a sea change? Hmmmm
Yup, just made up more s^^t.
I thought a “sea change” was where Obama stopped the seas from rising.
If there was something earth quaking, Democrats would have already leaked it in advance to the media.
Sea change, indeed.
Speaking of folks named Lynch, there is that lady named Loretta who appears to be one of the early coup planners...
The Star Chamber speaks.
“I would say he remembered some things that previous witnesses have not been able to remember.”
LOL! Of course! He’s like the votes they stash in Democrat cities. Figure out what they need and magically it appears!
“I think it could accelerate matters,” Lynch continued.
Look at the text messages - a total setup. DS claims omg I can’t believe this and reply is wth atmre you talking about? The whole thing was setup never expecting the call transcript to be declas
Meticulous notes, composed yesterday at CNN corporate office.
Impossible to impeach Trump without a vote in the House. So the Republicans have given up indicting anyone and Horowitz, Durham, and Huber have decided to delay delay delay until Hell freezes over. I think Barr is on something but stall stall stall is the normal Republican way. So goes into Trumps next term. And the Senate, a real shi! hole of fools.
