Former U.S Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker testified at the U.S. Congress. He reported to the investigators that he warned personal Trump’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani about the probability of disinformation from Ukrainian politicians toward ex-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter as The Washington Post reported.
Volker said that he tried to warn Giuliani that Ukrainian officials who informed him, including former prosecutor general Yuriy Lutsenko are unreliable and he should not trust the prosecutor’s versions.
The former American diplomat has begun to testify on October 3 due to the scandal that appeared after the complaint of informant against Trump. He provided testimony before the committees of intelligence, oversight and reforms and foreign affairs behind closed doors.
Ex-U.S Special Envoy to Ukraine became the second official of Trump’s administration who officially testified in the context of the investigation on impeachment of the American president initiated by the democrats. The first one was acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire.
On September 25, the White House published the transcript of the talk of two presidents. On September 26, the U.S. Congress published the full version of the complaint against the pressure of U.S. President Donald Trump on President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during the phone talk in July.
