Just not credible or possible. If this is what he’s reduced to he should throw in the towel. This man is getting ready to insult the intelligence of everyone in that room and watching via TV. I hope he’s dealt with accordingly.

So, does this mean someone new is going to testify Thursday that Volker was on the phone at a restaurant talking to the POTUS about “investigations into the Bidens”?

Maybe he will get rid of the glasses so nobody will recognize him. He could also hide out at his N-Clang!head ranch.

I can’t believe he’ll get away with this. It’s like being the assistant director of Jurassic Park and claiming you had no idea it about dinosaurs because you were “out of the loop”. And just what the hell does a dining district in Chicago have to do with this?
