    From CNN

    Bill Taylor, who led the US embassy in Ukraine and served as a key witness in the House impeachment inquiry, has departed his post.

    In his six months as charges d'affaires in Kiev, Taylor twice testified as part of the House probe into President Donald Trump, providing damning testimony about an alleged quid pro quo with Ukraine. He also remained a vocal advocate of maintaining US support for the country, especially amid ongoing Russian aggression.

    In a farewell message posted on New Year's Eve, Taylor stressed the US' "strong support" for Ukraine and voiced optimism about the country.

    "The time since June has been a great one, it's an exciting time to be in Ukraine," Taylor said. "This has been a great time for me to be here and it's going to be a great time going forward."

    The embassy announced Thursday that Deputy Chief of Mission Kristina Kvien had taken over the role of charge d'affaires.

    "While the embassy's leadership is changing, our policy of strong support for Ukraine remains steady," Kvien said in a video message posted Thursday. "Our embassy team will continue to partner closely with the Ukrainian government and civil society in support of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity and in support of reforms that will help Ukraine build its prosperous European future."

    Taylor's departure comes a day before Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was slated to arrive in the Ukrainian capital city. That visit was postponed on Wednesday "due to the need for the Secretary to be in Washington, D.C., to continue monitoring the ongoing situation in Iraq," according to a statement from State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus.

    Taylor came out of retirement to take on the role of top diplomat in June after Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch's unexpected removal from Kiev. It was a post he took with hesitation, he revealed in his House impeachment testimony, noting concerns there was "a snake pit in Kiev and a snake pit here, and (he) was not sure that (he) could usefully serve in that context." Sources told CNN in December that his appointment was set to expire this month, and though there were ways the State Department could have tried to extend his stay in Kiev, such as giving him a different title, there was no effort to do so.

    The Trump administration has not announced a nominee for ambassador to Ukraine.

    Well, it looks like Trump is gonna have to find another guy to fill Taylor's shoes. And knowing the third Impeached President, he will try to find someone who will be loyal to him, instead of following the laws of our country and respecting the laws of the country he is representing in the name of diplomacy.

    Just Saying.
