Kevin McCarthy Claims Bill Taylor’s Testimony Fell Apart During Questioning


The Democrats are working their impeachment “inquiry” in secret, and the clandestine nature of the proceedings are frustrating GOP lawmakers to no end.

Yesterday was a perfect example of this, as US Diplomat Bill Taylor testified before Congress in a closed door hearing in which legislators will not be allowed to discuss publicly for some time.  The only piece of Taylor’s testimony that did find itself out into the ether was his lengthy and verbose opening statement that, on its face, certainly painted a damning portrait of the President and his inner circle.

But that’s all we got.  The American people were not made privy to any other pieces of testimony from Taylor, nor were we given any sort of indication of what our lawmakers were even looking for.  We can thanks Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff for this obfuscation, with their refusal to authorize this impeachment “inquiry” in full.

One Republican in the room, however, is sounding the alarm and insinuating that Taylor’s testimony fell apart under questioning that he still isn’t allowed to truly discuss.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said a fellow Republican lawmaker deconstructed a key part of the latest Trump impeachment inquiry witness testimony in Tuesday’s closed-door session.

“In 90 seconds, we had John Ratcliffe destroy [acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill] Taylor’s whole argument,” McCarthy said.

The questioning by Ratcliffe, a Texas Republican and member of both the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, was an important moment in the hearing, McCarthy claimed.

But, of course…

“We can’t really talk about it,” he said.

The Democrats’ secretive tactics has drawn the ire of a great many prominent Republicans, including Senator Lindsey Graham who recently called for the Senate to dismiss the investigation altogether.
