Schiff Staffer Met With Impeachment Witness on Ukraine Trip 12 Days After ‘Whistleblower’ Filed Complaint
Newly released travel documents reveal that Adam Schiff’s staffer took a Burisma Group-funded trip to Ukraine 12 days after the ‘whistleblower’ filed a complaint against Trump and met with US Ambassador Bill Taylor.
Bill Taylor served as the Chargé d’Affaires for Ukraine and is now one of Schiff’s star witnesses in the sham impeachment inquiry.
A closer look at the itinerary for the August 24 to August 31 trip shows that the delegation’s first meeting upon arrival in Ukraine was with [Bill] Taylor, Breitbart News reported.
Breitbart News reported:
Itinerary for a trip to Ukraine in August organized by the Atlantic Council think tank reveals that a staffer on Rep. Adam Schiff’s House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence held a meeting during the trip with acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, now a key witness for Democrats pursuing impeachment.
The Atlantic Council is funded by and works in partnership with Burisma, the natural gas company at the center of allegations regarding Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
Taylor has been called by House Democrats to appear next week to provide a deposition as part of the investigation being led by Schiff into President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Taylor himself has evidenced a close relationship with the Burisma-funded Atlantic Council, writing analysis pieces published on the Council’s website and serving as a featured speaker for the organization’s events. He also served for nine years as senior advisor to the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council, which has co-hosted scores of events with the Atlantic Council.
As Breitbart News reported, Thomas Eager, a staffer on Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee, took a trip to Ukraine in August billed as a bipartisan “Ukraine Study Trip” in which ten Congressional staffers participated.
House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff got caught lying about his early contact with the whistleblower.
Recall, during a September 17 MSNBC appearance, Adam Schiff said, “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to.”
The New York Times then dropped a bombshell and revealed that Schiff’s staffers were aware of the whistleblower’s allegations against Trump before he filed a complaint — the staffers then relayed the information to Schiff.
Bill Taylor has emerged as Schiff’s star witness. Schiff selectively leaked one of Taylor’s text messages to make it look like Trump engaged in quid pro quo to force Ukraine into investigating the Biden crime family.
A couple weeks ago, the media ran screaming headlines crucifying Trump over encrypted text messages between US Ambassadors showing a quid pro quo ‘dispute’ over Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
The Democrats and their stenographers in the media focused on a ‘smoking gun’ text message sent from Bill Taylor — but within 24 hours it all blew up in their faces.
The text messages show US Ambassador to the EU defending Trump and making it clear there was no quid pro quo in the President’s communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
But the text message that the Democrats and the media hyped up was sent from Bill Taylor.
“As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” Taylor said in a September 9 text exchange.
What the Democrats and their media sycophants failed to report is that the September 9 text message from Bill Taylor was in reference to an August 28 Politico article, NOT because he had any independent information.
It’s all a scam. It was all a set up. Schiff’s staffer met with Bill Taylor shortly after the whistleblower filed his complaint and Adam Schiff is spearheading his impeachment scam by selectively leaking info from secret hearings.
Don Jr. blasted Adam Schiff on Thursday in response to the latest scam.
Of course he did. You knew it was coming folks. Just another setup. https://t.co/XPqBhY0NV2
