Volker and Morrison testify at House Intelligence Committee hearing on Trump impeachment inquiry on Capitol...
Volker testified that Trump described Ukraine as "a corrupt country, full of terrible people."
"He said they 'tried to take me down,'" Volker added.
Volker said he did not know that a request to tackle corruption in Ukraine and investigate Burisma, a natural gas company, was effectively a request to investigate Biden.
"In retrospect, I should have seen that connection differently, and had I done so, I would have raised my own objections," he said.
