Rep. Andy Levin (D-MI): Today's testimony "my most disturbing day in Congress so far."

The US diplomat who protested against President Trumpís pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political rival in exchange for military aid is testifying on Capitol Hill today in a closed-door session. According to reports, Taylor, who was the top American diplomat in Ukraine after Trumpís ouster of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, is expected to be questioned by House investigators on what he thinks Trumpís motives were in trying to orchestrate a quid pro quo with Ukraineís government.

While details on Taylorís exact testimony are still unknown, Fox News reporter Chad Pergram suggested in a tweet this Tuesday that Taylor is already confirming Democrats worst fears. One of those Democrats, Rep. Andy Levin (MI), was overheard saying, ďItís only noon and this is my most disturbing day in Congress so far.Ē

Taylor became a central figure in President Trumpís Ukraine fiasco after leaked text messages showed him condemning Trumpís push for a quid pro quo.

ďAs I said on the phone, I think itís crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,Ē Taylor wrote in a September 9 text message to former U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker and Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union.
