A staffer on Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA)’s Intelligence Committee apparently met with someone who is now scheduled to be a witness for the impeachment of President Donald Trump on a trip to Ukraine in August, Breitbart News reported.
The itinerary for the trip in question, coordinated by Burisma partner the Atlantic Council Think Tank, shows a meeting between Schiff staffer Thomas Eager and acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, who is scheduled to testify next week before Schiff.
Taylor reportedly has close ties to the Atlantic Council, including writing analysis for and speaking at events. 10 congressional staffers went on the Ukraine trip, which was billed as a bipartisan “study trip.”
The trip took place 12 days after the whistleblower report would have been filed. Links between Schiff’s office and the whistleblower have already been established.
So did Eager discuss with Taylor whether Trump wanted to investigate possible corruption by Biden in Ukraine?
