Staffer overheard Trump ask Sondland about ‘investigations’- Taylor

William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, testified on Wednesday that a staffer overheard President Donald Trump ask U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland about ‘the investigations’ in a July 26 phone call, and that Sondland said Trump cares more about the investigations into Biden than those of Ukraine.

Democrats leading the U.S. House of Representatives probe have summoned three U.S. diplomats – all of whom have previously expressed alarm in closed-door testimony about Trump's dealings with Ukraine - to detail their concerns under the glare of wall-to-wall news coverage.

Trump's fellow Republicans, who will also be able to question the witnesses, have crafted a defense strategy that will argue he did nothing wrong when he asked Ukraine's new president to investigate Joe Biden, a former vice president and key 2020 re-election rival.

The day's two witnesses - William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs - followed with opening statements echoing their earlier closed-door testimony about their alarm over efforts to get Ukraine to open an investigation of Biden.
