5 things we learned from George Kent and Bill Taylor’s impeachment testimony

Bill Taylor and George Kent, the first two witnesses in the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s dealings in Ukraine, testified for more than five hours Wednesday in a public hearing that saw both men share new — and sometimes shocking — pieces of information.Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state who worked on Ukraine and five other countries, had testified last month, for hours, in a closed-door setting before the three committees leading the inquiry.Here are five things we learned from their public appearance on Wednesday.1. A new Trump phone callIn his opening statement, Taylor revealed that one of his staffers overheard a phone call between U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland and President Donald Trump on July 26 — the day after the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelenskiy that prompted the impeachment inquiry.The staffer heard Trump ask Sondland about “the investigations,” Taylor testified, later clarifying to lawmakers that “investigations” meant probes desired by Trump and his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden as well as a conspiracy theory about the 2016 election.Taylor testified that the staffer said Sondland told Trump that the Ukrainians were “ready to move forward” with those probes.The staffer, Taylor testified, then asked Sondland what Trump thought about Ukraine. According to Taylor’s account, Sondland said that “Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden.”The existence of this conversation was previously not known. Taylor said he’d only learned from the staffer about the call last week — weeks after Taylor had appeared before the committees behind closed doors.2.
