The testimony of a key witness in Donald Trumpís first impeachment trial is under new scrutiny by the House Intelligence Committee following a report this week that undercuts the veracity of his claim that he was unaware of a Trump effort to pressure Ukraine into mounting a meritless investigation of Joe Biden.

On Monday, CNN reported new details of a July 2019 call between Rudy Giuliani, thenĖUS special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, and Andriy Yermak, a top aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. During that call, Giuliani, then Trumpís personal lawyer, aggressively pressed Ukraine to announce investigations into dubious accusations about Biden and about alleged Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election. Portions of this conversation have previously been reported by BuzzFeed News and Time, but CNN published the full audio of the 40-minute call. The recording of the conversation contradicts Volkerís sworn testimony to Congress that he never witnessed any attempt on the part of Trump and Giuliani to muscle Ukraine into launching an investigation of Biden, Trumpís possible opponent in the upcoming presidential election.

The discrepancy between Volkerís testimony and the recording of the call has drawn the attention of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who tells Mother Jones that Volkerís assertions to Congress amounted to ďa disingenuous revision of history.Ē

A former aide to the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who was appointed ambassador to NATO by George W. Bush, Volker is a foreign policy establishment figure who retains posts at a prominent DC lobbying firm and a think tank. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson picked Volker as a special representative to Ukraine in 2017, a nominally part-time job that overlapped with the duties of then-US Ambassador Maria Yovanovitch, who Trump later fired.

He lied....c'mon journalists. Do better.

has drawn the attention of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who tells Mother Jones that Volkerís assertions to Congress amounted to ďa disingenuous revision of history.Ē

'ďa disingenuous revision of history.Ē' is NOT correct, and is much too mild. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff should change his stance; ENOUGH mild-mannered, civilized talk.

2. Yes, far more serious than that. Lying to Congress?

What would the charges be if he were lying to protect a Democrat? He'd likely be in jail by now.

7. They lie with impunity because they have impunity - the Congress simply won't act to assure

truthful testimony under oath.

They were desperate to smear Biden on this because they knew he was the main threat, and he was. That Volker, who forged an otherwise honorable career, got the Trump stink all over him is just more evidence of the obvious point: anybody who goes near the Trump orbit is tainted. These people are trash, and you don't get to roll around in the trash without getting up with the stink.

A crime if you are poor minority with no money.

For movers and shakers being a criminal is part of the gig.

Nothing happens to rich criminals usually.

9. perjury charges?

Do we insist people tell the truth in testimony or not? If not, as we face many people willing to lie, we accept their doing so with impunity. I am not that kind of Democrat. Bring back the rule of law and smite the MF'ers! The truth matters!!

13. He fucking perjured himself, as did every single MF'er that put their damned hand up in the air

And swore to tell the truth in the eyes of the very Lord that purportedly gives them the moral high ground in our country.

Every single one of these fuckers needs to be gathered up, thrown in jail, and forced to answer for their perjury.

A nation of laws that doesn't enforce those laws against those who govern us is not a nation of laws at all. So tired of the slow hand of justice masturbating until everyone has forgotten the crime.
