A July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky ultimately triggered the impeachment probe.
An intelligence community “whistleblower” filed a complaint alleging Trump pressured Zelensky on the phone call to investigate allegations of corruption against Joe Biden and his son.
In written testimony, Volker described the communication exchanges as evidence that the Trump administration did not bully Ukraine into investigating Biden or his son.
The Democrats used the texts to argue the complete opposite of what Volker testified, saying the communication exchange proves Trump made a quid pro quo offer.
The White House letter said the impeachment probe is akin to an effort “seeking to overturn the results of the 2016 election.”
