Taylor testifies a staff member of his heard Trump talking to Sondland on the phone and Trump specifically asked if Ukraine was going forward with the investigations he wanted. This happened just last Friday and Taylor reported it right away.
I think the call happened many months ago, but Taylor only learned of it recently.
Oh, must have missed that. Just heard story about last Friday then the story.
Still, this seems like evidence that Trump knew about and was definitely asking for the QPQ, which:
1.) Has been denied to the hilt
2.) Goes to show that a defense against witnesses of "you never spoke to Trump so you don't know if a QPQ was what the President wanted" won't really work. I think the Republican defense might try to shield Trump and possibly set up a scapegoat like Mulvaney, Guiliani or Pence but if someone heard Trump saying a QPQ was necessary for either a meeting or defense aid, that defense goes out the window.
This should open up new questioning for Sondland and if he confirms that phone call, that line of defense goes out the window
