Taylor’s Aide testifies to what he recalls overhearing in a restaurant

10

William Taylor testified with only second-, third-, and fourth-hand ‘evidence’ so the Democrats brought his aide in. The aide, David Holmes, claims first-hand information to quid pro quo by the President. He testified in secret and if Schiff likes what he had to say, he will bring him back for public testimony. The prepared opening remarks were naturally leaked to the press.

Speaking in secret before the intelligence committee after Masha Yovanovitch’s [therapy session] testimony, Holmes testified that he overheard a phone conversation in a restaurant between Amb. Gordon Sondland and the President. He didn’t take notes and relied on his ‘clear’ memory.

OVERHEARD IN A RESTAURANT

“I heard Ambassador Sondland greet the President and explain that he was calling from Kyiv. I heard President Trump then clarify that Ambassador Sondland was in Ukraine. Ambassador Sondland replied, yes, he was in Ukraine, and went on to state that President Zelensky ‘loves your ass,’” he testified.

He overheard both sides of the conversation???

According to Holmes, the president then allegedly asked Sondland whether Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was willing to conduct an investigation into [credible] allegations of corruption surrounding both the U.S. 2016 presidential election and former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I then heard President Trump ask, ‘So, he’s gonna do the investigation?’ Ambassador Sondland replied that ‘he’s gonna do it,’ adding that President Zelenskyy will do ‘anything you ask him to,’” he claimed.

He admitted that he hadn’t taken notes — that his statements to Congress were based solely on his memory.

“Even though I did not take notes of these statements, I have a clear recollection that these statements were made,” he said. “I believe that my colleagues who were sitting at the table also knew that Ambassador Sondland was speaking with the President.”

Holmes reportedly overheard this conversation at a restaurant in Ukraine’s capital city of Kiev on July 26, a day after the president’s noted phone call with Zelensky.

Strange how it didn’t show up in the transcript quite like that.

Holmes’s opening statement was leaked to CNN because his gossip is seen as helping the Democrat case.

HE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT UKRAINE, ONLY PROBING JOE

Holmes described how Sondland agreed the President didn’t give a “s**t” about Ukraine, the insinuation being it wasn’t corruption he was after, it was a Biden investigation.

What the left wants all to think is that there is no credible evidence to investigate. They want Americans to believe the President wanted to hurt his pure-as-the-driven-snow opponent for a nefarious reason.

Then Holmes repeated second-hand information.

“After the call ended … I then took the opportunity to ask Ambassador Sondland for his candid impression of the President’s views on Ukraine. In particular, I asked Ambassador Sondland if it was true that the President did not ‘give a s—t about Ukraine,’” he claimed.

“Ambassador Sondland agreed that the President did not ‘give a s—t about Ukraine.’ I asked why not, and Ambassador Sondland stated that the President only cares about ‘big stuff.’ I noted that there was ‘big stuff’ going on in Ukraine, like a war with Russia, and Ambassador Sondland replied that he meant ‘big stuff’ that benefits the President, like the ‘Biden investigation’ that Mr. Giuliani was pushing. The conversation then moved on to other topics.”

OBAMA’S OWN STATE DEPT WAS WORRIED ABOUT HUNTER

Schiff is selectively leaking gossip with some facts interspersed. There is no evidence.

  • ANOTHER SOFA KING LIAR ENTERS THE KANGAROO COURT AGAINST OUR BELOVED PRESIDENT TRUMP. ALL THIS IDIOT HAS IS HEAR-SAY. DUH… WE WANT PROOF; WE WANT TRUE EVIDENCE. AMEN

  • Perhaps it would be better to call Sondland, since he was talking to the President and Holmes is just a low level a$$ kisser for the left.

    • The fat NSC clerk who disobeyed a direct order from his CiC admitted that the transcript released by President Trump was accurate.

      Read…the…transcript.

  • I do find it interesting just how many privileged conversations these Deep State operatives just happen to “overhear.” None of these Ambassadors or their flunkies determine foreign policy. They follow the orders and/or directives set forth by POTUS or they get removed and replaced. They ONLY serve at his pleasure and he can fire any or all of them when they stop pleasing him…

  • Couple of important questions:
    Did the aid actually hear President Trump’s voice on the other end of the phone or is he just assuming that it was Trump?
    Will Sondland, who was on the phone with the alleged President Trump be called to testify about that call and the subsequent conversation with the aide?

    • Taylor testified that Holmes told him that Trump was speaking to Sondland so loud that he could the conversation they were having on Sondland’s cell phone ????? HHHMMM…….. Sondland comes back to testify again next week again at the request of the Republicans of the committee, we will see what he has to say.

  • This is subterfuge.
    Go after Schiff for falsifying evidence and abuse of office and the Constitution.
    Lock his ass up in the basement and Iet visitors to the Capital throw eggs and feces at him.

    Televise the event daily.
    Charge $5 admission.

    Oh, one more thing repossess Schiff’s pay since the start of his abuse of feces office.

    Finally, Schiff isn’t allowed to have his WiFi vibrating butt-plug until he gets out of prison.

  • Recommendation to Dems: Before voting on impeachment, have one of your staff show you where Ukraine is on a map, just in case a real journalist asks you about it after the vote.

  • He overheard both sides of a telephone conversation in a RESTAURANT???????

    That’s some amazing hearing. Oh, and I understand he reads minds as well. Trump is in big, big trouble. (SARC)
