WASHINGTON Kurt Volker, a former U.S. ambassador to NATO caught in the middle of a whistleblower complaint over the President Donald Trumps dealings with Ukraine, resigned Friday from his post as special envoy to the Eastern European nation, according to a U.S. official.
The official said Volker told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday of his decision to leave the job, following disclosures that he had connected Trumps personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani with Ukrainian officials to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family over allegedly corrupt business dealings.
Giuliani has said he was in frequent contact with Volker about his efforts. The State Department had no immediate comment on his resignation and has said only that Volker put Giuliani in touch with an aide to Ukraines president.
Pompeo said Thursday that as far as he knew, all State Department employees had acted appropriately in dealing with Ukraine.
Volker was brought into the Trump administration by former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to serve as envoy for Ukraine. He worked in a volunteer capacity and had retained his job as head of the John McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University. Arizona States student newspaper was the first to report his resignation.

An infiltrator who used to work for McCain
I always recoil when I see the name John McCain. My reaction to his name is much like one might have upon finding a pile of cat cat shit on the kitchen floor.
Especially when you dont own a cat.

Kurt Volker resigns as Ukraine envoy after mention in whistleblower complaint, source says, Fox News, >60 comments.
Working as a “volunteer”, did he receive any remuneration? One shouldn’t judge a book by its cover; but the guy looks shady to me.
Sorry, when I checked, I really thought anyone posting an article on this subject would put the word “Ukraine” in the Keywords section. I stand corrected. I mean it’s about Ukraine isn’t it. Am I missing something?
Brought into the administration by Rex Tillerson. Figgers.
Can someone explain why it is a crime to ask a foreign government to investigate the crimes of the son of a guy who wants to be president (the most powerful position in the world)?
According to the dimoKKKRATS, if you look into the wrong doings of the Biden family that is an impeachable offense. We are seeing that in action.
No, you’re not missing anything, you’re fine. This is from another source (the Washington Post), wasn’t posted already from that source, also it’s an important story that people might have missed when it was posted yesterday.
I only put up those links because there were a lot of comments made already, some of which might have contained interesting or useful information or links.
You didn’t do anything wrong, I didn’t mean to say that or imply any criticism of you.
P.S. Stay out of Marcy Park.
If he was a “spy”, he would have taken off BEFORE the report.
Dude is running for cover!!!
Just CYA. Kurt Volker was not what you could call politically reliable. The wrath of The Donald can be far-reaching.
I always recoil when I see the name John McCain
Did you vote for him, for president?
I didnt. His name made me recoil even back then
Exactly what caught my eye as well. Starting to get some focus on this guy and its not pretty.
President Trump, the human minesweeper, has smoked out another one. There are more are still to come, with traitors on both sides of the aisle.
