This week’s OTM pod extra is another episode from the new podcast hosted by WNYC’s Brian Lehrer:
Where are we on impeachment today?Yesterday evening, the public got the chance to read the opening statement of U.S. emissary to Ukraine William Taylor’s testimony. In it, he described “two channels of U.S. policy-making” in Ukraine, official State Department and security channels, and the “highly irregular” efforts by others in the President’s circle to undermine the longstanding policy in Ukraine. Taylor laid out the most complete timeline of those efforts available thus far, and cited contacts he’d had with others that indicate President Trump’s direct involvement.
