Trump’s Ambassador to Ukraine Kurt Volker handed his resignation in to Sec. of State Mike Pompeo on Friday night.
Executive Director of the McCain Institute Kurt Volker resigned from his position as the U.S. Special Envoy for Ukraine Friday, following reports he collaborated with Ukraine and President Donald Trump.
An ASU official confirmed Volker’s resignation Friday and said the University could not speak about his future at ASU because the University does not comment on personnel matters.
Volker met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Friday to announce he would be resigning, the official said.
Volker’s name was mentioned in the recent whistleblower complaint, which has sparked an impeachment inquiry for Trump. Trump has defended his actions, including a phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky where Trump requested dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Volker’s name was mentioned in the whistleblower complaint, and he was also texting Rudy Giuliani about Ukraine as part of the conspiracy to dig up or fabricate dirt on Joe Biden.
Mike Pompeo has been subpoenaed. The Ambassador to Ukraine has resigned. Impeachment is already sending shockwaves throughout the Trump administration. In a few days, the nation has seen more accountability and fallout from Trump corruption than they have seen since this president took office.
These are the first dominoes to fall. There is going to be much more to come in the days and weeks ahead.
