Summary

Volker said a ‘statement’ from the Ukrainians would release the aid Cooper told investigators that she met with Volker in August to discuss the hold on military aid. Cooper believed that Volker, too, wanted the aid to be released, and she said Volker mentioned to her “an effort that he was engaged in to see if there was a statement that the government of Ukraine would make that would somehow disavow any interference in U.S. elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individuals involved in election interference.” Budget official told Cooper that Trump was concerned about ‘corruption’ Cooper told investigators that Michael Duffey, a senior official at the Office of Management and Budget who handles national security issues, said during a July 26 meeting that the president ordered the hold on aid to Ukraine because of his “concerns about corruption.” But Cooper also said an inter-agency review for corruption concerns had already been completed. “It was unanimous with the exception of the statements by OMB representatives, and those statements were relaying higher level guidance,” Cooper said, adding that she never found out what Duffey meant by Trump’s “concerns about corruption.” Duffey was subpoenaed by impeachment investigators but, like other OMB officials, he refused to appear for testimony, depriving Democrats of potentially explosive information about the hold on military aid to Ukraine.
