Rep. Zeldin Says Dem’s “Star Witness” Claims Not Based on 1st Hand Knowledge

Rep. Lee Zeldin took to Twitter to point out he believes the Democrat’s “star witness” Ambassador Taylor has limited credibility due to his claims not being based on first hand knowledge.

Zeldin tweeted:

The Dems/media are desperately relying on Taylor as their star witness to show there was an impeachable offense of quid pro quo. Aside from the fact he admits he has no idea what quid pro quo even means, Taylor also admitted to me his claims aren’t based on 1st hand knowledge:

Transcripts from ambassador Bill Taylor have been made public, which details crucial events about U.S. military aid to Ukraine.

WATCH:

Per PBS, Taylor told lawmakers that he believed the Trump administration had withheld military aid to Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into political rivals.

William Taylor, the U.S. chargé d’affaires to Ukraine, emerged as a key witness in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump after a trove of widely circulated text messages showed Taylor questioning the administration’s motives in Ukraine.

In his opening statement Taylor said: “As the Committees are now aware, I said on September 9 in a message to Ambassador Gordon Sondland that withholding security assistance in exchange for help with a domestic political campaign in the United States would be ‘crazy.’ I believed that then, and I still believe that.”

Taylor is one of several diplomats to testify before House lawmakers as they investigate whether Trump committed impeachable offenses by pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate a political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son Hunter Biden.
