Jordan interrupts Holmes during questioning at impeachment hearing

In a heated exchange during impeachment proceedings, Rep.

Jim Jordan (R-OH) asks Holmes about his recollection of the Trump-Sondland call, and his disclosure of it to Ambassador Bill Taylor.

Jordan ran through various exchanges between individuals and said, "Nowhere is there a Holmes-tells-Taylor what the President of the United States tells Sondland." Holmes was interrupted a few times when he attempted to answer.

Holmes testified about a July 26 phone call in which he said he overheard Trump ask Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to the European Union, about the status of the investigations.

He said he heard Trump's voice on the call at a Kiev restaurant.

"So, he's gonna do the investigation?" Trump asked Sondland, referring to Zelenskiy, Holmes said.

"He's gonna do it," replied Sondland, he said.

Sondland added that the Ukrainian president would do "anything you ask him to," Holmes said.

Holmes said Sondland told him after the call that Trump was interested in "big stuff" in Ukraine, defining that as "like the Biden investigation that Giuliani is pushing." On Wednesday, Sondland testified he could not remember the precise details of the call Holmes overheard, but took issue with his recollection that he had talked about the Bidens.

"I do not recall mentioning the Bidens.

That did not enter my mind.

It was Burisma and 2016 elections," Sondland said.

Trump says he does not remember the call with Sondland.
