US Special Representative for Ukraine Confirms Testimony at Congressio
Report informs citing the TASS,

A key impeachment witness who worked closely with Donald Trump has dramatically amended his testimony during a public hearing. Report informs citing the TASS that former US special envoy to the Ukraine Kurt Volker changed his account to concede that he was aware of a link between military aid being withheld from the Ukraine and an investigation being launched into a key Trump rival. Accusations that Trump withheld $400m in aid until Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky began a probe into rival Joe Bide’s son Hunter’s links to an Ukrainian natural gas firm are what sparked the ongoing hearing which seeks to remove him from office. Addressing the House Intelligence Committee in Washington DC Tuesday afternoon, Volker referred to testimony he gave the Committee behind closed doors last month. He said: ‘I learned many things that I did not know at the time of the events in question.’

He claimed that if he had known the full extent of what is said to have happened between Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, he would have ‘raised (his) own objections.’
