U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor told Democratic counsel at Wednesday's impeachment inquiry hearing that he can "tell you what I heard from people" when asked about the quid pro quo between President Trump and the Ukrainian president.
COUNSEL DANIEL GOLDMAN: Now, during this early period in September, we talked a little bit about the fact that you continually heard that the president was repeatedly saying that there was no quid pro quo. Is that right?
TAYLOR: That's correct.
GOLDMAN: And he--he still says that repeatedly today, but regardless of what you call it, whether it's a quid pro quo, bribery, extortion, abuse of power of the office of the presidency, the fact of the matter as you understood it is that security assistance and the White House meeting were not going to be provided unless Ukraine initiated these two investigations that would benefit Donald Trump's reelection. Is that what you understood the facts to be?
TAYLOR: Mr. Goldman, what--what I can do here for you today is tell you what I heard from people

The media have been trying to make a cake out of this pile of dung all day. Ain’t happening.
from people who either made it up or heard it from other people...
Remember the old game of “Telephone”?
Hearsay is a joke. I don’t think hearsay is admissible in a court of law.
I don’t think this impeachment BS is going to make it to the senate for trial.
lol...the media is reporting on such stupid stuff...I actually saw a story about Ratcliffe asking for more time for questioning like it was a huge story. That’s because today was a total disaster for them.
Not a joke at all. And he said it again right after Jordan’s first segment of questioning him.
“I dont think hearsay is admissible in a court of law.”
It’s worse. He freely admits that there is direct evidence proving that the hearsay is false but he keeps repeating the hearsay to the cameras.
Taylor heard it from a friend who
heard it from a friend who
heard it from a friend who
heard it from a friend who....TALK about your extreme hearsay evidence.
My conspiracy theory:
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died last week. The Demonrats knew she was at death’s door three weeks ago and started the impeachment process to keep PDJT from being able to appoint her replacement.
Heresay. Opinions. We all know what they say about opinions. I had a guy tell me about a car wreck he saw one time. I never thought that it made me a witness to the wreck.
If Buzzie was really dead, the House vote would have already happened. The IG report (if its factual ) Durhams indictments, and her death the same month will be the perfect storm. Well start the CW2 right there.
“...My conspiracy theory:

Probably more truth to that “theory” than many of us know.
Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to these evil domestic communists...nothing.
If democrats could get away with it they would send the right away in boxcars to gas chambers on little more than hearsay... IF they could get away with it.
Just look at the travesty of justice that Schitt head is putting America through, over nothing more than the thirst for political power that they see slipping through their fingers, and you know they’ve flipped their lids and are capable of anything at this point.
They’re really just budding Nazi fascists.
“...but he keeps repeating the hearsay to the cameras”.
It’s about all they have to go on. Their desperation grows by the day.
Schiff reminds me of a demonic puppet in a horror movie.
The Rats are in a no win situation and in a very bad spot.
You’re right on. If they get away with this whole coup business there will be a next time and next time will make this time seem like child’s play. They’ll go full Stalin/Hitler on our ass.
I don’t think this BS is going to make it to the senate for trial. There would be no hearsay but a lot of discovery. The Rats do not want any discovery.
