Published

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.

WATCH: Biden Calls Military Members ‘Stupid B—’ During Overseas Speech As Vice President

And the MSM will remain silent.

It wasn’t that long ago when the mainstream media pushed a story accusing President Trump of denigrating US military members. The reports have been widely debunked, as one would expect. However, here’s actual footage of 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling them “stupid bastards.” And the MSM will remain silent. From The Daily Wire: A video emerged on Friday of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” during a speech overseas to U.S. soldiers while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration. WATCH: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1309604720546373633?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1309604720546373633%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-video-emerges-of-joe-biden-calling-u-s-troops-stupid-bastards-during-speech-biden-campaign-responds Team Biden has put out a statement saying Joe was just joking. They must be tired of doing that by now. When Joe was in Germany he decided to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough. According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1096974881801957376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1096974881801957376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjoe-biden-goes-to-germany-trashes-america-as-an-embarrassment%2F

Pelosi: If GOP Moves Forward With SCOTUS Nomination ‘There Has To Be A Price To Pay’

And what would that be??

Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think Joe Biden should debate President Trump. She doesn’t give a legitimate reason why, but come on – we all know why. Joe isn’t all there. From Fox News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his “henchmen” have no “fidelity” to facts or the truth. Asked during an interview on “Morning on CBS” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.” Here’s video of Pelosi claiming there “has to be a price to pay” if Republicans move forward with a SCOTUS nomination before the general election. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHx56Kxmea0&feature=emb_title Rush Limbaugh makes an excellent point about this upcoming SCOTUS pick. Congressional Republicans, take note. From The Hill: Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged Senate Republicans to skip the confirmation hearing process for President Trump’s soon-to-be announced Supreme Court nominee and head straight to a floor vote. “I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped,” Limbaugh said Monday on his daily radio program. “We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/mmfa/status/1308100957390151683?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308100957390151683%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fmedia%2F517408-rush-limbaugh-encourages-senate-to-skip-hearings-for-trumps-scotus-nominee H/T: Right Scoop
