Volker testified that Trump described Ukraine as "a corrupt country, full of terrible people."

"He said they 'tried to take me down,'" Volker added.

Volker said he did not know that a request to tackle corruption in Ukraine and investigate Burisma, a natural gas company, was effectively a request to investigate Biden.

"In retrospect, I should have seen that connection differently, and had I done so, I would have raised my own objections," he said.

Volker's testimony conflicted in some aspects with an earlier account he gave to lawmakers.

In closed-door testimony in October, Volker said he had not heard any references to investigations during a July 10 White House meeting between U.S. and Ukrainian officials.

On Tuesday, he said Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, made a "generic" comment about investigations that everyone regarded as inappropriate.

Tim Morrison, former senior director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council, said he resigned from the National Security Council of his own volition and felt no pressure to resign, and he did not fear retaliation for his testimony in the impeachment inquiry.

In his opening statement at a public hearing, Morrison also said he did not know the identity of a whistleblower whose report helped start the inquiry.

He added the United States must continue to support Ukraine, with support from both Republicans and Democrats.

During the July 25 call, Trump asked Zelenskiy to carry out two investigations that would benefit him politically, including one targeting Joe Biden. The other involved a debunked conspiracy theory embraced by some Trump allies that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 U.S. election.

Kurt Volker (L) said he believed those two concerns were "conspiracy theories." He added that allegations of corruption involving Biden and his son, who was a director of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, were "not credible."

On the first of two witness panels were Jennifer Williams, an aide to U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, and U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, director for European Affairs at the National Security Council.

Vindman, the White House National Security Council's top Ukraine expert and a decorated Iraq war veteran, testified that the president's request that Ukraine investigate a domestic political rival was an improper "demand," as he fended off Republican efforts to cast doubt on his competence and loyalty to the United States.

Vindman: "It is improper for the president of the United States to demand a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen and a political opponent ... It would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing bipartisan support, undermining U.S. national security and advancing Russia's strategic objectives in the region ... Without hesitation, I knew that I had to report this to the White House counsel," Vindman said when asked about his reaction to Trump's call with Zelenskiy.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, a Democrat, opened the impeachment hearing by addressing the alleged actions by Trump that are the focus of the inquiry he is spearheading.

"To press a foreign leader to announce an investigation into his political rival, President Trump put his own personal and political interests above those of the nation. He undermined our military and diplomatic support for a key ally, and undercut U.S. anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine."

House Intelligence ranking member Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the committee, spent much of his opening statement denouncing the U.S. news media as "puppets of the Democratic Party" who are in "a fevered rush to tarnish and remove a president."

"The media, of course, are free to act as Democrat puppets, and they're free to lurch from the Russia hoax to the Ukraine hoax at the direction of their puppet masters. But they cannot reasonably expect to do so without alienating half the country who voted for the President they're trying to expel."

"Americans have learned to recognize fake news when they see it, and if the mainstream press won't give it to them straight, they'll go elsewhere to find it -- which is exactly what the American people are doing."

Jennifer Williams, special adviser to Vice President Mike Pence for European and Russian affairs: "On July 25th, along with several of my colleagues, I listened to a call between President Trump and President Zelenskiy ... I found the July 25th phone call unusual because, in contrast to other presidential calls I had observed, it involved discussion of what appeared to be a domestic political matter." She said the White House budget office had said Trump's acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, had directed that $391 million in security aid to Ukraine be put on hold and that she never learned why the assistance was later released in September.

Some Trump allies in the conservative media have questioned Vindman's loyalty to the United States. Trump last month described Vindman, a decorated Iraq War veteran, as a "Never Trumper," using a term for Republicans who oppose Trump.

A U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Army has been carrying out security assessments since Vindman expressed concerns about his family's safety. Vindman and his family could be moved to a base if the security threat against him mounts, the official added.
