Zelensky also said that the transcript of the conversation, released by the White House, is similar to Ukrainian version. Rudy Giuliani kept coming around to push Ukrainian officials to dig into Burisma, and Volker and Sondland seemed interested in facilitating his efforts.
Volker told investigators Thursday that he warned Giuliani not to rely on information coming from Ukraine's former top prosecutor, Yuri Lutsenko.
The prosecutor general insisted on Friday that he did not feel any pressure over the Burisma case.
Separately, Zelensky was fully "briefed" on the subject, so that "he's got it", Sondlor, a major Republican donor, texted Volker, while the latter replied arguing the crucial thing for Zelensky is to "say he will help investigation - and address any specific personnel issues - if there are any".
Volker was in office as the administration was holding back the $250 million for Ukraine.

Sondland responds: "Bill, I believe you are incorrect about President Trump's intentions".
The US President had also disparaged the former ambassador to Ukraine in his July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The meeting occurred even as Giuliani pressed Ukraine's government to investigate the company and the Bidens' involvement with it. Pence told reporters the next day that he and Zelenskiy had not discussed Biden during their closed-door meeting, though they had discussed the White House's decision to halt security aid to the nation meant to counter Russian aggression.
