Bottom Line of Bill Taylor Testimony Is No Quid Pro Quo

3

Bill Taylor’s testimony has been released and you can read the 324 pages below, but be sure to read pp. 119 and 120.

Taylor, the Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, is Adam Schiff’s star witness and was interviewed by Congressman John Ratcliffe (R-TX) on the pages mentioned. That’s where the congressman killed the quid pro quo narrative.

Mr. Taylor assumed quite a lot and whined about it, but he didn’t have the goods.

THE RATCLIFFE EXCHANGE

“It sounds like from your statement today, that you were aware of the [military] hold and troubled by it but that President Zelensky was not aware of it at that point in time,” Ratcliffe said to Bill Taylor.

“That is correct,” Taylor responded.

Ratcliffe continued, “So, if nobody in the Ukrainian Government is aware of a military hold at the time of the Trump-Zelensky call, then as a matter of law and as a matter of fact, there can be no quid pro quo, based on military aid. I just want to be real clear that, again, as of July 25th, you have no knowledge of a quid pro quo involving military aid.”

Rep. Ratcliffe again asked Bill Taylor, “And to your knowledge, nobody in the Ukrainian Government was aware of the hold?”

Ambassador Taylor replied, “That is correct.”

NO PRESSURE, NO THOUGHT CRIMES

The President might have had some inappropriate instincts, but he didn’t act on them. You can’t convict people for thought crimes in the USA.

There was no pressure and no quid pro quo. The transcript fully confirms that statement as does all the testimony so far.

Rep. Meadows also pointed that out:

There is confirmation from the Volker testimony:

  1. This is nothing more than a Soviet-style show trial, this person represents members of the interagency who are angry because Trump avoided the swamp on making foreign policy decisions.

  2. I don’t get it, if they serve at the pleasure of the president, they cannot doubt his intentions, like a soldier cannot complain about his commander’s decisions. Too much talk about nothing. This needs to get closed soon.
