Trump claims he did nothing wrong, but he is refusing to turn over Bill Taylor’s Ukraine notes to the impeachment investigation.
Rep. Denny Heck (D-WA) said on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, “. By the way, we should remember, Chris, this isn’t being talked about much. He kept contemporaneous notes. Now, we don’t have access to those because it is within the long list of things the administration is stonewalling the Congress on. But when he wrote his testimony, his opening statement, and gave his testimony, it was predicated on his contemporaneous notes, which he referred to. And thirdly we’re going to get somebody who’s going to place this all in perspective, the importance of the strategic relationship and alliance with Ukraine.”

If Trump really did nothing wrong, he should be handing over every single piece of paper to the impeachment investigation because it would clear his name. The reason why Trump won’t hand over Taylor’s notes is that the notes will be another piece of evidence that the President Of The United States committed an impeachable offense by trying to extort a foreign government to help his presidential campaign.
Trump won’t turn over Taylor’s notes, which speaks volumes about the validity of Trump’s claims that he did nothing wrong.
