GOP Rep Destroys Key Impeachment Witness                                    2019-10-23 by: TTN Staff 

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is claiming a GOP rep destroyed the narrative of the latest impeachment inquiry witness in short order.

According to Fox News:
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.

McCarthy added House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is not allowing lawmakers to speak too specifically about the proceedings, in an interview Tuesday on "The Ingraham Angle."

"Adam Schiff won't let us talk about what happened," he said regarding U.S. diplomat to Ukraine Bill Taylor's closed-door hearing on Capitol Hill. "There is no quid pro quo."
The GOP members do say that new details were brought to light by the witness but nothing in the new details rises to the level of being impeachment worthy.
