Republicans say the ‘smoking gun’ impeachment testimony is ‘fourth-hand’ hearsay.
“There’s only two references in Bill Taylor’s opening statement to Joe Biden. One of those references is just a reference to the July 25 call transcript. But the other reference is this reference on page 12 — it’s the only other reference to Joe Biden. This is fourth-hand information — this isn’t first-hand, second-hand, or third-hand,” he said.
it is. He admitted he had ‘no direct knowledge’.
Kind of thin, don’t you think?

If it was a ‘smoking cannon,’ Adam Schiff would have already released it and the transcripts for all the world to see.
Democrats are hailing testimony from senior State Department official Bill Taylor on Tuesday as their “smoking gun” to prove that President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine unless they investigated former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
Rep. Lacy Clay (D-MO) tweeted, “I was in the room. Jaws dropped, heads shook in disbelief, this president and his enablers willfully put #NationalSecurity at risk to benefit his political campaign. This wasn’t just a smoking gun, it was a smoking cannon.”
Rep. Andy Levin (D-MI) told reporters it was his “most disturbing day in the Congress so far.”
However, Republicans said Taylor, the top U.S. official at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, produced no smoking gun and only recounted hearsay.
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who is on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and was present for Taylor’s interview, told Breitbart News on Wednesday that Taylor had no direct knowledge of any alleged quid pro quo. More
One’s thing is for sure. Schiff did not expect President Trump to release the transcript. What a fool he was to think he can could his own version. What a sham.
This is A SCAM and should End it’s a embarrassment to the Democratic Socialist Party and it leader Nancy “I’m a puppet to the Squad “ Pelosi
