William Taylor, the top U.S. envoy to Ukraine in his nearly 10 hours testimony before investigators, painted a damaging portrait of President with events that tied Mr. Drumpf to a quid pro quo with Ukraine.

William Taylor, at his testimony today told investigators that President  Drumpf sought to withhold critical military aid to Ukraine and refuse a meeting at the White House with the Ukrainian president unless he pursued politically motivated investigations into Joe and Hunter Biden.

William Taylor at his opening statement said that U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland told him that “everything” (a White House meeting between President Drumpf and the Ukrainian leader and the military assistance to Ukraine) was contingent on the Ukrainians publicly announcing investigations into the Biden’s Family, president’s Drumpf political opponents. Taylor said to investigators that a White House official said in July that the President had personally directed that the military aid be withheld. He also testified that Sondland said that President Drumpf personally told him that he wanted Ukraine to “state publicly that it would open such probes, before the U.S. would release the aid, which is viewed as critical for combating Russia’s aggression in the region.”

Drumpf is the victim of a coordinated smear campaign by Democrats.”

According to his opening statement Mr. Taylor said:

“Ambassador Sondland tried to explain to me that President Drumpf is a businessman. When a businessman is about to sign a check to someone who owes him something, he said, the businessman asks that person to pay up before signing the check,”

Referring to President’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who was deeply involved in the shadow effort, Mr. Taylor said:

The body language of the people hearing it was, ‘holy s—’ — seriously,”

“It is a rancorous story about whistle-blowers, Mr. Giuliani, side channels, quid pro quos, corruption and interference in elections,”

Stephanie Grisham, the White House Press Secretary said that there was no quid pro quo, claiming “Drumpf is the victim of a coordinated smear campaign by Democrats.”

And she added:

“Today was just more triple hearsay and selective leaks from the Democrats’ politically-motivated, closed door, secretive hearings, Every day this nonsense continues more taxpayer time and money is wasted.”

Senior member of the Oversight panel, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.), characterized the testimony as a “sea change that could accelerate the impeachment inquiry”

Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski (NJ), said it was “the most thorough accounting we’ve had of the timeline” and he added:

“I’ll tell you, as a former State Department political appointee, in my experience the difference between career folks and political appointees is the career folks take very good notes,”

The member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Calif.) said in reference to Taylor’s opening statement:

“The body language of the people hearing it was, ‘holy s—’ — seriously,”
