5 Highlights From Bill Taylor's Impeachment Inquiry Testimony.

Bill Taylor, replacement for former Ukrainian ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, gave a closed-door testimony to Congress on Tuesday.

His testimony has been described as "incredibly damaging to the president." Here are five key moments.

I found a confusing and unusual arrangement for making U.S. policy towards Ukraine.

There appeared to be two channels of U.S. policy-making and implementation, one regular and one highly irregular, Bill Taylor, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, via NBC News.

Taylor testified this "irregular channel" included Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and E.U.

Ambassador Gordon Sundland.

In an instant, I realized that one of the key pillars of our strong support for Ukraine was threatened, Bill Taylor, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, via NBC News.

This refers to the so-called "quid pro quo." .

The Trump Administration seemed to threaten to withhold U.S. aid to Ukraine unless government officials announced an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

It had still not occurred to me that the hold on security assistance could be related to the 'investigations.'

That, however, would soon change, Bill Taylor, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, via NBC News.

Taylor testified that Sondland told him that "everything" was dependent on announcing the Biden investigation, including security assistance.

President Trump did insist that President Zelenskiy go to a microphone and say he is opening investigations of Biden and 2016 election interference .., Bill Taylor, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, via NBC News.

Taylor testified that without the public statement, Sondland told him the U.S. and Ukraine would be at a "stalemate" regarding aid to the country.

Sondland 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 that person to pay before signing the check, Bill Taylor, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, via NBC News.

Taylor described holding aid from the Ukraine as "crazy," saying the country "did not owe President Trump anything.".

President Donald Trump tweeted his response to the testimony.

Neither he (Taylor) or any other witness has provided testimony that the Ukrainians were aware that military aid was being withheld.

You can’t have a quid pro quo with no quo.
