Lawmakers spar over Volker deposition

Democratic lawmaker Eric Swalwell said former top U.S. diplomat Kurt Volker's deposition showed his work in Ukraine was a "front" for work being done by Rudy Giuliani on behalf of President Donald Trump.

Republican Mark Meadows said that report "was not backed up by the facts." Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

Former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Kurt Volker on Thursday became the first of five former and current U.S. diplomats to give a deposition to the congressional committees conducting an impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Donald Trump.

Volker resigned last week as Trump's special representative for Ukraine negotiations.

Democratic lawmakers are examining whether there are grounds to impeach Republican Trump based on a whistleblower's account that said he asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 phone call to help investigate Democratic political rival Joe Biden.
