President Donald Trump said he had ‘never heard’ of new bombshell testimony from Wednesday’s first televised impeachment hearing based on a phone conversation he was overheard having with his ambassador to the EU.

Trump was asked at a press conference Wednesday afternoon about new information provided by diplomat William Taylor, who stunned listeners at the impeachment hearing when he said an aide of his had overheard the president on a phone call with Ambassador Gordon Sondland – a key figure in the alleged Ukraine pressure plot.

According to Taylor’s testimony, the official heard Trump ask Sondland about ‘investigations.’ The member of Taylor’s staff then asked Sondland what Trump thought about Ukraine. The official said Sondland responded that Trump ‘cares more about the investigations of Biden, which [Rudy] Giuliani was pushing for,’ Taylor said.

It was another piece of evidence connecting Trump to the plan to wring investigations out of Ukraine – but the president said he had ‘never heard this,’ when asked about it by a Fox News reporter.
