Ukraine Wants to Set the Record Straight on Taylor Testimony
Carlos Jasso/ReutersWhen Ambassador Bill Taylor testified to congressional Democrats' closed-door impeachment inquiry, he created huge headaches for the Trump administration by detailing their efforts to push Ukraine to probe former Vice President Joe Biden's son. 

But Taylor also made some problems for Ukraine's president. And now, aides in President Volodymyr Zelensky's office are going on the record to push back. The episode shows just how complicated relations between the U.S. and Ukraine have become as the Trump impeachment inquiry unfolds. 

In his testimony last month, Taylor-America's top diplomat in Kyiv-implied that two Zelensky aides blamed Ukraine, rather than Russia, for the long-running, bloody war in the eastern part of the country. Taylor's words weren't crystal-clear, but the comment set off a political firestorm in Ukraine, where Russian-backed separatist fighters have killed thousands of Ukrainians. Critics of the country's newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, seized on Taylor's testimony as evidence that Zelensky's team is running interference for Russia.

Rudy Giuliani's man in Ukraine and the origins of the Biden conspiracy theory
Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer, told Telizhenko that he was collecting evidence to give to the FBI about the Democratic Party and Ukraine. Specifically, Giuliani was looking for evidence that during the Obama administration, Biden had pressured authorities in Kiev to fire a prosecutor to protect Burisma, an energy company that paid his son as a board member. At the time, Telizhenko was best known for a controversial claim about the Democratic National Committee colluding with the Ukrainian government.
