Read the transcript for NSC official Timothy Morrison's testimony in the Trump impeachment inquiry

Congressional impeachment investigators released the transcript of National Security Council official Timothy Morrison's testimony in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

Morrison told congressional members and staff on Oct. 31 that he asked National Security Council lawyers to review Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky because he thought it “would be damaging” if it “leaked.”

Trump is accused of withholding nearly $400 million of military assistance to Ukraine as well as a White House meeting with Zelensky unless the Ukrainian government opened investigations into Trump's political adversaries, including former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
