Jim Jordan Rips Into Democrats’ Star Witness, “What You Heard Didn’t Happen”

Rep. Jim Jordan tore into the Democrats’ star witness Ambassador William Taylor during the impeachment hearing on Wednesday. Jordan broke down step-by-step the manner in which Taylor said he had a clear understanding of why President Trump withheld security funding to Ukraine:

During Jordan’s questioning of Taylor, he focused on the limited knowledge of the actual events about which he was testifying, even though he considered it clear:

Jordan: You didn’t listen in on President Trump and Zelensky’s call?

Taylor: I did not.

Jordan: You’ve never talked with Chief of Staff Mulvaney?

Taylor: I never did.

Jordan: You’ve never met the president?

Taylor: That’s correct.

Jordan: You had three meetings again with Zelenksy and it didn’t come up … and President Zelensky never made an announcement. … and you’re their star witness.

Here’s is the fuller version of the conversation, because he reiterated it as well:

Jordan: “In those 55 days that aid is delayed, you met with President Zelensky three times. The first one was on July 26, the day after the famous call now between President Trump and President Zelensky.”

“President Zelensky meets with you, Ambassador Volker, and Ambassador Sondland, and again, according to your deposition and your testimony, there was no linkage of security assistance dollars to investigating Burisma or the Bidens.”

“Second meeting was August 27, President Zelensky meets with you, Ambassador Bolton and others, and again there’s no linkage of security assistance dollars to an investigation of the Bidens,” Jordan continued. “And then of course, the third meeting was September 5, President Zelensky meets with you and Senators Johnston and Murphy, and once again there was no linkage of security assistance dollars to investigating Burisma or the Bidens.”

“Three meetings with the president of Ukraine and no linkage. That’s accurate?”

Taylor: “Mr. Jordan, it’s certainly accurate on the first two meetings, because to my knowledge the Ukrainians were not aware of the hold on assistance until the 29th of August,” Taylor responded. “The third meeting that you mentioned, with Senator Murphy and Senator Johnston, there was discussion of security assistance but … but, uh, there was not a discussion of linkage.”

So what exactly was Taylor’s clear understanding derived from? Jordan reads it from a sworn testimony,

“Ambassador Taylor recalls that Mr. Morrison told Ambassador Taylor that I told Mr. Morrison that I conveyed this message to Mr. Yarmmac on September 1, 2019 in connection with Vice President Pence’s visit to Warsaw and a meeting with President Zelensky.”

WHAT? This is a triple case of hearsay all wrapped up in one sentence.
