Cause and effect: The demise of the special envoy post—originally occupied by Kurt Volker—is one of the first tangible signs that fallout from the impeachment probe has left a lasting impact on U.S. policy toward Ukraine. [4/7]

Amb Sondland threw many under the bus & now Fiona Hill is undercutting Sondland, Kurt Volker & others who said they weren’t aware Burisma investigation meant a Biden investigation. By July 10, she says, "it was clear that Burisma was code for the Bidens," bc of Rudy Giuliani.

Kurt Volker, a Trump loyalist and one who tried to gloss over what was really going on, as well as his own central role in it, has become a star witness in the impeachment inquiry.

Press rightly focused on Sondland testimony, but for me, Volker is key. Volker was trying to do the right thing, but went along with wrong methods. I've known Kurt for a long time. There is no way that he doesn't know/feel that the "drug deal" was wrong. He needs to say so now.
