The former envoy was the first to testify behind closed doors and told legislatures that there was no indication that Trump conditioned a White House meeting and military assistant on the predication that Ukraine investigate Biden.

“I have learned many things that I did not know at the time of the events in question,” Volker told the House Intelligence Committee.

Volker has remained adamant that he did not change his deposition was based on his understanding.

The ambassador was aware that the president had placed the $400 million in military aid on hold and was in the loop on the conversations surrounding the decision. Volker was also in the room with Ukrainian officials and U.S. ambassador Gordon Sondland.

“I opposed the hold on U.S. security assistance as soon as I learned about it on July 18, and thought we could turn it around before it the Ukrainians ever knew or became alarmed about it,” he said. “I did not know the reason for the hold, but I viewed it as a U.S. policy problem that we needed to fix internally, and I was confident we would do so.”

Volker did acknowledge his mishandling of Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani’s push for Ukrainian officials to open an investigation into Biden during his opening testimony. He said, “In retrospect, I should have seen that connection differently, and had I done so, I would have raised my own objections.”

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is the top Ukraine specialist on the National Security Council and testified beside foreign service aide Jennifer Williams, a foreign service aide that worked with Vice President Mike Pence.
