  • Is Pompeo Afraid of Ambassador Taylor?

    Or was he ordered by Trump not to be seen with him?

    A top State Department aide told acting US ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor -- a key witness in President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry -- to hand over his duties just days before Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to visit Kiev in January, a source familiar with the situation told CNN.

    The timing means that Pompeo will not have to meet, be seen or photographed with Taylor, who drew the President's ire after his damning House testimony that Trump demanded his appointees set up a quid pro quo with Ukraine, explicitly offering much-needed US military aid and an Oval Office meeting in exchange for personal political favors.


    Pompeo, a stalwart Trump ally who many expect to announce a run for a US Senate seat in Kansas in the near future, has insulated himself from Taylor for weeks, the source familiar said.

    A "top State Department aide"....who is this person and how can it be confirmed?

    "a source familiar with the situation"....how is this "source" familiar with the situation?

    "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

      Bill Taylor, who led the US embassy in Ukraine and served as a key witness in the House impeachment inquiry, has departed his post.

      In his six months as charges d'affaires in Kiev, Taylor twice testified as part of the House probe into President Donald Trump, providing damning testimony about an alleged quid pro quo with Ukraine. He also remained a vocal advocate of maintaining US support for the country, especially amid ongoing Russian aggression.

      In a farewell message posted on New Year's Eve, Taylor stressed the US' "strong support" for Ukraine and voiced optimism about the country.
