We’ve all already seen the transcript of State Department legend Bill Taylor’s closed-door impeachment testimony, so we all knew what he was going to say during his televised testimony today, right? His appearance today was merely for the benefit of those who haven’t been paying close attention, right? As it turns out, Taylor dropped a new bombshell on Donald Trump today.
Bill Taylor testified today that he just recently learned that a member of his staff overhead a July 26th phone call between Donald Trump and Gordon Sondland. After that phone call, Sondland told the staffer that Trump “cares more about the investigations of Biden” than the cares about Ukraine.
This is a huge deal because it goes directly to Donald Trump’s intent. This new revelation, which Taylor says he wasn’t aware of when he gave his initial closed-door testimony, provides the most direct evidence yet that Trump was extorting Ukraine for the sole purpose of trying to promote the fake Biden scandal, in the name of altering the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election.
Plenty of people are watching today’s hearings right now, but plenty more people are busy at work today, and they’ll learn about today’s hearings based on the handful of key soundbites that rise above the noise. Bill Taylor’s phone call bombshell will certainly end up being one of them.
