Special envoy to Ukraine does not support Schiff' allegations
Kurt Volker has been a recent hot name within the Trump-Ukraine impeachment frenzy. A former John McCain aide, he was at the center of attempting to arrange a meeting with Rudy Giuliani and Ukrainian officials. This came in the course of the former New York City mayor attempting to investigate whether Joe Biden acted corruptly while vice president. My colleague Sara Lee shared some details about Volker this morning in a piece.The Democrat narrative is not supported and Schiff's credibility is in doubt.
Shortly after the Trump call to Zelensky broke as a story, Volker resigned as special envoy to Ukraine, leading many to believe he was doing so out of some kind of impeachment worthy disgust. Given his background working with an organization that pushed the Steele dossier, that actually wasn’t a bad bet.
Surprisingly though, it appears Volker’s testimony fell flat.
Per The Washington Examiner.
“He has said nothing that coincides what the Democrats are saying with their whole impeachment narrative,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, of Ohio, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee and a staunch supporter of Trump....
Jordan, who appeared alongside a group of conservative Republicans and Trump allies, declined to talk specifically about Volker’s deposition, which is continuing in a secure hearing room in the Capitol.
Jordan described Volker as “unbelievably knowledgeable about what was going on in Ukraine,” and added, “not one thing he has said comports with any of the Democrats’ impeachment narrative. Not one thing.”
