Devin Nunes, D-Calif., the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, yielded his time to GOP counsel Steve Castor to question George Kent and Bill Taylor in the first public hearing in the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, and Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, answered questions from Castor about some specifics within their testimonies, including the concerns surrounding Joe Biden's son Hunter and his time on the board of the Ukrainian gas company, Burisma. Kent said he raised some concerns in 2015 about Hunter's connection to the gas company—“my concern was that there was a possibility of a perception of a conflict of interest.”
