WASHINGTON –The impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump moved into public view Wednesday as the House Intelligence Committee heard from two witnesses, Ambassador Bill Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary at the State Department.
After George Kent and Bill Taylor concluded their testimony, the House Intelligence Committee voted down a motion calling the whistleblower to testify.
They voted along party lines, with 13 Democrats voting against the motion, and 9 Republicans voting for it.
Mike Conaway, R-Texas, had introduced a motion to force the whistleblower to testify – a goal among Republicans who want to hear directly from the still-unnamed official.
Democratic presidential candidates have been watching the hearings and weighing in on Twitter.

It's extortion. It's an impeachable offense. And it's been out in the open the whole time. pic.twitter.com/SbMeLAMsr1

The American people deserve to know the truth. And it's time to show Trump that no one is above the law—not even the president of the United States.

Don't rely on second, third, and fourth-hand accounts. Read the transcript for yourself. https://t.co/wfHIQ0aO76

This sham hearing is not only boring, it is a colossal waste of taxpayer time & money. Congress should be working on passing USMCA, funding our govt & military, working on reduced drug pricing & so much more. @realDonaldTrump is working right now-the dems should follow his lead!
