Rep. Jim Jordan blasted the House Democrats’ decision to bring in former Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, as a star witness in their impeachment probe against President Trump.
Taylor was not on the July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky and testified Wednesday based on second-hand information, as The Daily Caller reported.
“Ambassador, you weren’t on the call, were you? You didn’t listen in on President Trump and President Zelensky’s call,” Rep. Jordan asked.
Jim Jordan also forced Taylor to acknowledge that he had never even met the president or talked with his current chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney.
“You’re their star witness. You’re their first witness. You’re the guy. You are the guy, based on, this based on, I mean, I’ve seen church prayer chains that are easier to understand than,” Jordan said.
Taylor told Rep. Jordan that he doesn’t consider himself to be a “star witness” in the impeachment investigation into the President.
Jim Jordan’s comments were consistent with an 18 page memorandum released by House Republicans earlier this week to make the case against House Democrats’ impeachment probe.
In the memorandum, Republicans stated that the Dems don’t have sufficient evidence to impeach President Trump, and have not given the president “due process” or a fair chance to defend himself.
