Skip to comments.Democrat Jeff Van Drew: Bill Taylor’s Testimony ‘Hearsay’
Posted on 11/14/2019 7:46:46 AM PST by BlackFemaleArmyColonel
Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) dismissed diplomat Bill Taylors testimony Wednesday before the House Intelligence Committee as hearsay.
During Taylors testimony, he claimed President Trump spoke with Gordon Sondland, the American ambassador to the European Union, about the investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
Taylors information came from one of Taylors staffers who claimed he overheard the presidents phone call with Sondland.
The New Jersey Democrat chastised Taylor over his assertion.
Its hearsay, Van Drew said after Wednesdays impeachment inquiry hearing. Its really difficult dealing with this because its he said-she said.
Reps. Van Drew and Collin Peterson (D-MN) were the two House Democrats to vote against House Speaker Nancy Pelosis (D-CA) resolution formalizing the rules and proceedings regarding their impeachment inquiry.
Van Drew said he would need to see the stronger evidence such as verifiable documents or audio of President Trumps conversations to prove the allegations levied against him for him to back impeachment.
Frankly the aid did flow, so that really isnt an issue at the end of the day, Van Drew added. The aid flowed, and everything resolved.
Van Drews district represents one of the many districts that Democrats flipped during the 2018 midterm elections. President Trump and Republicans hope to flip red during the 2020 congressional elections. President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election in New Jerseys second congressional district.
Rep. Van Drew has continued to criticize the impeachment inquiry into President Trump as hopelessly partisan.
The New Jersey Democrat said in October his constituents said this move to impeach the president has fractured the nation.

Probably got permission to speak out so he could hold his seat.
Will be interesting to see how the flipped seats vote when the impeachment vote takes place.
He voted against this nonsense. If you cant sell van Drew on it, how can you sell the country?
Van Drew is a south NJ Democrat.
Yes, but how about the Democrat congressman that said some of the best evidence is hearsay and many people in the past have been convicted on hearsay. The moron thinks the National Enquirer might serve as a welcome witness at a impeachment trial. Although, I have to say that there is a better chance of the National Enquirer having the correct facts than the New York Times. Baby daddy John Edwards is proof of that fact.
The rats begin their flight from the sinking ship.
This person sounds sane and rational... Why is there a “D” beside his name?
Of course the fake news liars cannot credit the truth in his statements, but can take up column space to point out that his district isn’t safe for radical communism yet.
Jeff Van Drew is a Democrat who was elected to his House seat from New Jersey in 2018. He had previously been a State Senator in that district for more than ten years, and represented that same district in the State Assembly for six years before that.
A Republican just won the special election to replace him in the New Jersey State Senate last week.
You know damn well these Democrats representing "moderate" districts all over the U.S. are telling Pelosi to shut this circus down ASAP.
Wait, what?? There’s an actual Dim who refuses to be made an Ass of by his no talent hack associates? Wow!
I heard from a guy who heard from his sister who heard from her hairdresser that Nancy went to Jordan to meet with Russia and China to get them to help her overthrow Trump
Its hurting them. Wheres the upside to all this to those vulnerable Democrats? They dont see it.
If Democrats cant get van Drew aboard, its DOA even if they can still get votes for it.
Well that’s one.
Taylor said --
that one of his staffers said --
That he overheard half a phone conversation --
In a coffee shop
Yeah, that'll stand up in court.
When the Dems said when they take over all Trump supporters will go to Prison ,you can see they would try it
“its DOA even if they can still get votes for it”
I stick by my original prediction.
Democrats will not be able to muster a majority when/if actual Article hit the floor for a vote.
>>>During Taylors testimony, he claimed President Trump spoke with Gordon Sondland, the American ambassador to the European Union, about the investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.<<<
I have a question. Even if the above statement is true, how is it Illegal? There is clearly an issue with Biden’s Son profiteering over his Father’s Political position as Vice President of the United States.
We live in an alternate reality than the Rats do.
I live in the 2nd District. I can guarantee you he will not win the seat in 2020. This is Trump country down here (except for Millville and Bridgeton) . I would bet my house on it. Candidate Trump won by 4.6% in 2016. I think President Trump will win the district by at least 10%.
At some point, these proceedings must contain at least a veneer of legitimacy. Democrats are so used to voting along party lines, that they can’t even acknowledge truth when it is smacking them in the face. But somewhere, there will have to be a price to pay for it. Perhaps it will play out in the battleground Congressional districts. Certainly Schiff has no worries about re-election.
Ah, I wish I could make the same guarantee for the Staten Island/part of Brooklyn seat.
Trump won Staten Island with 57 percent.
That’s gotta go to above 60 to cancel out the foreign POS that moved into the district’s part of brooklyn.
I HATE that #### Rose.
