U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor, who was against withholding foreign aid in order to apply pressure to Ukraine in order to push President Trump’s political interests arrived on Capitol Hill to testify in the impeachment inquiry against the president.

Here are the details from The Washington Examiner:

A career foreign service officer who became the top American diplomat in Ukraine after Trump’s controversial ouster of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Taylor did not speak to reporters as he entered the closed-door deposition. But House investigators plan to question Taylor about why he believed Trump’s team was trying to orchestrate a quid pro quo would involve using security aid to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate allegations involving the Democratic Party and former Vice President Joe Biden.

“That is important of where he got the information that this was going on, what his impression of it was,” Nevada Rep. Dina Titus, a Democratic member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, told the Washington Examiner on Friday. “I think it’ll be very interesting to see what he has to say. I think that’ll be the prime question.”

Taylor emerged as a central figure in the Ukraine controversy after the State Department’s former point-man for Ukraine, Ambassador Kurt Volker, gave investigators a batch of text messages that show Taylor condemning any push for a quid pro quo. “As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” Taylor wrote in a Sept. 9 text message to Volker and Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union.

Taylor may have been reacting to the media reports about delayed security assistance rather than being in possession of any inside information, according to a Democratic investigator.

“Of course we know that there was already press reports suggesting that the aid was cut off for that purpose,” New Jersey Rep. Tom Malinowski, another Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, said to the media. “We also know a very interesting fact, which is that aid to a critical country was suspended and nobody working the policy toward that country knew why, which has probably never happened in the history of America.”

Malinowski continued on saying, “It would be natural [based on those two facts alone] for our ambassador or our acting ambassador in Kiev to have that supposition.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has stated emphatically that the aid delay in question had nothing to do with any sort of quid pro quo scheme to force Ukraine into digging up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

“The conversation was always around what were the strategic implications, would that money get to the right place, or would there be corruption in Ukraine and the money wouldn’t flow to the mission that it was intended for, how did we protect that, is it appropriate for us to provide defensive weapons systems?” Pompeo said in an interview conducted on Sunday.

It would appear that the showdown is finally set. In November, America will have a choice between Donald Trump or Joe Biden. From NYP: Joe Biden has formally clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Friday. […] But Biden collected the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after Tuesday’s primaries in seven states and the District of Columbia. It took several days to tally Biden’s win because several states that voted in Democratic primaries on Tuesday were inundated with mail-in ballots from voters hoping to avoid the spread of COVID-19. From Daily Wire: Even though Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has made herself a subject of controversy in Michigan due to her decision to extend the state’s lockdown orders in the face of mounting protests, reports indicate that she still tops Joe Biden’s shortlist for potential running mates.

Flashback: ‘Star Wars’ Actress Suggests Supporters of President Trump Are Not ‘Sane’

Maddening!

If you vowed to never see a movie again because the star or the director’s political views don’t align with yours, there’s a good chance you’ll never see a movie again. There are probably quite a few “Star Wars” fans out there who will vote for President Trump in 2020. Most probably don’t love that Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, is an anti-Trump political know-nothing. But those people will push through anyway because they love the saga. Well, if that’s the case and you are one of those people, you’re going to have to do the same thing with Rey, portrayed by Daisy Ridley. She thinks if you support Trump you are literally insane. From Daily Wire: In an interview with The Guardian, the “Rise of Skywalker” actress argued that her privileged background, in which she attended a boarding school, did not make her access to fame any easier. […] In the same interview, Ridley said that she does not like talking about her political opinions, though she did knock British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, while adding that “sane” people have issues with President Trump. Ridley noted (BOLD MINE), “No. I don’t feel I have to edit what I say – the things that make me angry are the things that make everyone angry. Everyone is annoyed with BoJo. Everyone has an issue with Trump – every sane person anyway. It’s not that I don’t talk about this stuff, but other people are so much more articulate than me and say it better.” Democrats hate President Trump with such passion that he could single-handedly cure cancer and they’d still find a way to tear him apart, just for sport. And that’s the problem. Lefties don’t care. WATCH: This is @CNN, “the most trusted name in news.” Media “journalist” @brianstelter ended…
