Here is a devastating attack on the impeachment inquiry and especially the "smoking gun" text messages.
From the article by Steve Hilton:
Some commentators called that statement "devastating for the president,"pointing to the fact that Volker debunks claims by Rudy Giuliani and the president about Ukraine's role in 2016 and Joe Biden's role in Ukraine. That isperfectly true.
Kurt Volker has been involved in every aspect of this story, dealing face to face with all the key players, all along: President Trump, President Zelensky, Zelensky's adviser Andriy Yermak, and Giuliani. Volker's been described by Trump critics as an "honest broker.'"
Listen to his actual evidence. On page three of his statement, Volker says:"At no time was I aware of or took part in an effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden. As you will see from the extensive text messages, I am providing, which convey a sense of real-time dialogue with several different actors, Vice President Biden was never a topic of discussion."
On page six, talking about President rump delaying a meeting with Zelensky -- a delay that, based on the texts alone,the media cite as evidence of Trump pressuring Ukraine to investigate Biden -- Volker says:
"But Ibelieved that the president’s long-held negative view toward Ukraine was causing hesitation in actually scheduling the meeting."
Nothing to do with investigating Biden. Just President Trump's concerns over Ukraine corruption, exactly as he's been saying.
Read the entire article; it's eye-opening!

He's clearly very smart and all over this story.
I don't have cable so don't have Fox. I don't mind; I get sixty broadcast channels with an antenna, which is free.
