A Republican staff attorney for the House Oversight Committee was the butt of internet jokes on Wednesday over confusing line of questioning during a hearing for the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump .

Attorney Steve Castor, the House Intelligence Committee Counsel for the minority, asked the top US diplomat in Ukraine, Bill Taylor , and Deputy Assistant Secretary of StateGeorge Kent questions on behalf of the GOP as part of the hearing, but many people didn't understand his game plan.

People on social media noticed the dizzying nature of Castor's questioning, saying it was unclear what he was ultimately trying to do.

They said that while Castor was questioning Taylor, he alluded to conspiracy theories , tried to get Taylor to say Trump thought Ukrainians were "out to get him" during the 2016 election, and blundered a questioned he didn't know the answer to.

Many people made jokes about his struggles on Twitter:
