Fox's Chris Wallace: Bill Taylor Was ‘Very Impressive' and ‘Very Damaging' to Trump
During the first recess in Wednesday's public impeachment hearing, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace noted that top Ukraine diplomat Bill Taylor was a "very impressive witness" and that his testimony was "very damaging" to President Donald Trump.In his lengthy opening statement on Wednesday, Taylor revealed for the first time that Trump's interest in Ukraine investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son went even further than originally known. According to Taylor, U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland called Trump from Ukraine and the president pressed him on "the investigations." Following the call, Sondland told a Taylor staffer that Trump "cares more about the investigations of Biden" than Ukraine."Well, as somebody who has covered a lot of trials, and I know Judge [Kenneth] Starr has probably been on a lot more than I have, when you listen to direct examination and the prosecutor for—is talking to the plaintiff and the plaintiff is getting a chance to tell his story, it usually is pretty devastating," Wallace said during Fox News' hearing coverage. "And then when you get cross-examination by the defense attorney, sometimes it turns out not to be quite as effective."Noting that observers had yet to hear from the Republicans or their minority counsel, Wallace emphasized how compelling Taylor's testimony was. "Having said that, I think that William Taylor was a very impressive witness and was very damaging to the president," the anchor declared.Wallace furthe

Mysterious Professor at Heart of Russian Investigation Returns for Impeachment Proceedings
Chip Somodevilla/GettyROME—Joseph Mifsud, the erstwhile professor from Malta whose promise to help then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign aide George Papadopoulos get his hands on Russian "dirt" about Hillary Clinton has reportedly resurfaced. On Wednesday, the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera posted a six-minute audio recording in English it says Mifsud sent from an anonymous email account late Tuesday night. A short time later, the Italian news agency Adnkronos published a clip it received. Whether other publications received the Mifsud missive is not clear, nor is the more important question of whether it's genuine. Last summer Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham traveled to Rome twice to learn what they could from Italian secret service officials about the professor as part of their investigation into the Russian investigation led by Robert Mueller. Mifsud has not been seen for two years and speculation has swirled around the question of whether he is still alive and, if he is, who is supporting him.Barr Went to Rome to Hear a Secret Tape From Joseph Mifsud, the Professor Who Helped Ignite the Russia ProbeThe Corriere clip starts with a brief introduction. "Today is the 11th of November 2019" and continues, "I am Joseph Mifsud speaking, this is my voice." It does sound like other recordings of Mifsud.He goes on to say that he has had "no contact with friends and family for a number of months now." While he

George Conway mocks Republicans' 'ridiculous' impeachment arguments in rare cable news appearance
MSNBC is getting ready for the historic first impeachment hearing of President Trump with a very special guest making a rare appearance on cable news. George Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, appeared on MSNBC Wednesday morning in the lead-up to the first public hearing in the impeachment inquiry. Though Conway has been a vocal critic of Trump, CNN's Brian Stelter notes he has declined all TV interview requests until now.Ahead of the testimony of William Taylor, the U.S. charge d'affaires in Ukraine, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent, Conway told MSNBC that Trump "always sees himself first" and that this scandal is all about Trump having used "the power of the presidency in its most unchecked area, foreign affairs, to advance his own personal interests as opposed to the country."Conway also said Congress needs to "do its duty" for the country and that he's "horrified" at how Republicans have come to the president's defense."Take that Republican hat off and look at it neutrally," he said. "Or look at what you would have done if Donald Trump was a Democrat. Would you be making these ridiculous arguments about process ... or 'it wasn't corrupt, he was really talking about corruption.' All these things that they don't really believe or couldn't possibly believe." Conway was, evidently, a reluctant guest, telling MSNBC, "I don't frankly want to be on television." WATCH: George Conway discusses the US Constitution, President Trump and the president's actions in regard to Ukraine. -- MSNBC (@MSNBC) November 13, 2019More stories fr
