Ex-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor Testifies in House Impeachment Probe
Former U.S. Ambassador William Taylor, who’s emerging as an unlikely central player in the events at the heart of the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, arrived on Capitol Hill on Tuesday to testify.The retired career civil servant declined to comment as he entered the area for the closed-door hearing. But his testimony will be among the most anticipated in the string of diplomats and foreign policy officials who are being interviewed by House investigators in the impeachment probe.Taylor was tapped to run the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine after the administration abruptly ousted the ambassador. He was then drawn into a Trump administration effort to leverage U.S. military aid for Ukraine.And then he apparently grew alarmed.”I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” he wrote in excerpts of text messages released by impeachment investigators in Congress.Now, members of Congress will hear directly from Taylor.
