US diplomat says Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff pressured him to make false claims
A top US diplomat has reportedly testified that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) pressured him to say that President Donald Trump bullied Ukraine officials to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family dealings.
Schiff, the Democrat chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, pressed U.S. special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker in a secret meeting on October 3, according to a bombshell report by the Washington Examiner. Volker has reportedly testified that Schiff pressured him to say Ukrainian officials were bullied by Trump to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. According to Volker, however, what Schiff was suggesting was not the case, noting that Ukrainian leaders did not even know the aid was being withheld. The ambassador says that Ukraine believed their relationship with the United States was moving along satisfactorily.
