Holmes: "At a time of shifting allegiances and rising competitors in the world, we have no better friend than Ukraine – a scrappy, unbowed, determined, and above all dignified people who are standing up against Russian authoritarianism and aggression. They deserve better."

David Holmes, political counselor at the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, delivers opening statement: "Since you determined that I may have something of value . and issued a subpoena, it is my obligation to appear and to tell you what I know."

Giuliani has deleted his morning tweet, where he claimed Volker asked him to help with Ukraine, and he spoke mostly with Volker. One possible motive: It contradicted Rudy's Nov 8 claim that he was in Ukraine "solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges"
