Ambassador Kurt Volker's testimony took apart the Democrats' whole case in their push to impeach President Donald Trump, Rep. Mike Turner, a member of the Intelligence Committee, said Wednesday morning, before public hearings continued in the inquiry.
"What Kurt Volker said was that as the president in his telephone call said, that he now understands that the president and others were asking for an investigation into the Bidens," the Ohio Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends," while clarifying that there was "no tying of aid to any of these requests."
Turner complained that many other news outlets are reporting that Volker said the aid was tied to an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, "he said the president of the United States never said or intended or required that aid be tied to the investigations, and Ukrainians never understood the aid was tied...that is their whole case."
Meanwhile, with U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testifying on Wednesday, Turner said Republicans hope he'll remain consistent on his testimony.
"We continue to have the Adam Schiff team coming up short on having any tying of the aid," said Turner. "There certainly were communications or, discussions, understanding among all of the hearsay group but under those who actually speak to the president of the United States and spoke to the Ukrainians. Unless they tie this to the president of the United States then they have fallen short."
