WATCH: Rep. Quigley’s full questioning of George Kent and Bill Taylor | Trump impeachment hearings
- Published on Nov 13, 2019
- Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., questioned George Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, and Bill Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, in the first public hearing in the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Quigley pushed back against Republican assertions that the Trump administration’s handling of Ukraine was appropriate and that "hearsay" should not be allowed in the testimony. The impeachment probe centers around a July phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Both Kent and Taylor testified to lawmakers in October behind closed doors.
