Bill Taylor: It was my "clear understanding" that Ukraine's aid was contingent upon an investigation

CHAIRMAN SCHIFF: And when you say that, this was the first time I heard that the security assistance not just the White House meeting was conditioned on the investigation, when you talk about conditioned, did you mean that if they didn’t do this, the investigations, they weren’t going to get that, the meeting and the military assistance?

TAYLOR: That was my clear understanding, security assistance money would not come until the President committed to pursue the investigation.

SCHIFF: So if they don’t do this, they are not going to get that was your understanding

TAYLOR: Yes, sir.

SCHIFF: Are you aware that quid pro quo literally means this for that?
