My San Antonio 54 minutes ago
WASHINGTON (AP) - Sought by Republicans to testify, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine spoke up instead for Democrat Joe Biden in Tuesday's impeachment hearings, rejecting “conspiracy theories” embraced by President Donald Trump and some of his allies. Morrison, also requested by GOP members on the House Intelligence Committee, said at the outset that he was not there to question the “character or integrity” of any of his colleagues, though earlier Tuesday Republican lawmakers used his prior comments to try to discredit another witness, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. “The allegations against Vice President Biden are self-serving and non-credible,” Volker declared.
