House impeachment investigators are continuing to move forward no matter the belligerent attempts at obstruction from President Donald Trump and his closest associates. This weekend, they released transcripts from two more private testimonies, including Trump aide Tim Morrison and Pence aide Jennifer Williams, both of whom apparently listened to the infamous July phone conversation in which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens (and a debunked conspiracy theory about the location of a Democratic email server). As House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) outlined on Twitter, both Morrison and Williams revealed the scope of alarm following Trump’s talk with Zelensky.
‘Morrison corroborates others who said Ukraine was told military aid was conditioned on announcing investigations Trump wanted. Bolton told Morrison to tell the lawyers. Williams learned that Trump told Pence not to attend Zelensky’s inauguration.’

These are not anti-Trump figures. They’re appointees of the Trump administration itself who have revealed to Congress that the president was seeking to truly use “everything” that Ukraine wanted from the U.S. as leverage in his plot to get them to produce dirt on the Bidens. That even includes Pence’s attendance at Zelensky’s inauguration, as mentioned. Energy Secretary Rick Perry, who also helped with the implementation of Trump’s shadow foreign policy surrounding Ukraine and whose testimony has been demanded by House Dems, went in Pence’s place.
Jennifer Williams even revealed that the official call record of Trump’s conversation with Zelensky is incomplete. Based on her firsthand knowledge, she explained that Zelensky singled out the company Joe Biden’s son Hunter worked for, although this crucial detail is absent from the official record. Previous impeachment witness and National Security Council (NSC) official Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman also listened into the call and said he tried to correct the record, but politically minded officials kept that from happening.
