Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the ranking member on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, told reporters the only testimony that matters in the impeachment inquiry is the one former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker gave to lawmakers.

"We have the definitive account on all this is the one from Ambassador Volker...he was the special envoy to Ukraine. He was the guy who was in this each and everyday, working on these issues. And it's interesting, that's the one transcript y'all don't want to talk about," Jordan said.

"We got the call transcript. We know there was nothing wrong in the call transcript. We got the two guys on the call who said there was no pressure, no pushing, no quid pro quo. We have the fact the Ukrainians, at the time of the call, didn't even know aid had even been held. And we have have the most important fact is they did nothing to get the aid released," he continued.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the transcripts from Volker's and Ambassador Gordon Sondland's deposition on Tuesday. In Volker's testimony, he said there was no “linkage” between a White House meeting and Ukrainian investigations. Volker further said he did not view the delay in aid to be significant because it was eventually given.

Sondland filed an addendum to his testimony on Monday, addressing the issue as to whether Ukrainian military aid was tied to a public declaration of an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Sondland said he remembered a conversation he had with a top Ukrainian official and said the "resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that had been discussing for weeks."

He added he "did not know (and still do not know) when, why, or by whom the aid was suspended."
