Former Ukraine Ambassador Bill Taylor released an extensive statement he gave at the opening of the closed-door hearing about President Donald Trump's Ukraine scandal.


Former solicitor general, Neal Katyal was among many lawyers to point out how "devastating" the details were.

Among other things, Taylor said during a call with EU Ambassador Gordan Sondland, the Trump donor "tried to explain to me that President Trump is a businessman. When a businessman is about to sign a check to someone who owes him something, he said, the businessman asks someone to pay up before signing the check."

Taylor's name had been trending most of Tuesday on Twitter, but after the statement was released, people quickly began asking how it isn't enough evidence for Republicans to support impeachment.

At least one freshmen Democrat found it to be one of the most shocking things he's seen in his career.

As one Washington Post reporter noted, Taylor was the replacement for Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was seen as a liability.
