Ep. 273 - Impeachment Hearings Day I

13 November 2019 is the first day of public hearings for the impeachment inquiry. State Department Official, George Kent, and Ambassador Bill Taylor testified before the House Intelligence Committee for nearly six hours. Most of the questions were asked by the counsel for the majority and minority parties, however, Congressmen were able to ask questions as well. Most of the testimony was a rehashing of their testimony behind closed doors. However, there was some breaking news from Ambassador Taylor. As he stated that new information was brought to his attention since giving his deposition. The information: one of his staff members alleges that he was with Ambassador Gordon Sondland in Ukraine, one day after the infamous phone call between Presidents Trump and Zelensky, and claims that Amb. Sondland called President Trump to brief him on his progress. The staffer alleges that he overheard the conversation through the cell phone as the staffer was with Sondland during the call. He claims it was the President and that the President was asking about the investigation into the Bidens. When the phone call concluded, the staffer asked Amb. Sondland what the President said, allegedly, Sondland replied that the President is more interested in investigating the Bidens, as is Rudy Giuliani, than helping Ukraine. This adds another element to the story and it’s one that doesn’t look good for President Trump as this makes it appear that he is very much focused on Ukraine investigating one of his potential 2020 Presidential opponents. This staff member is set to testify this Friday behind closed doors. This is not a good turn of events for Amb. Sondland either. Recall, following the release of the closed door depositions, Sondland amended his testimony to note that there was a quid pro quo and that he raised concerns about the situation. Now he’s linked with having a first hand conversation with the President about this issue. Sondland is set to testify next week. President Trump was asked about this phone call with Sondland and he denies the call – he does not “recall.”
