Tim Morrison, a top White House Russia expert, arrived Thursday to testify behind closed-doors about President Trump’s contacts with Ukraine, the latest in a growing string of witnesses to buck the president and appear as part of the Democrats’ impeachment investigation.
Morrison is expected to be asked about whether the president and other officials sought to withhold nearly $400 million in financial aid to Ukraine in exchange for a public commitment from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open two investigations that would benefit Trump politically.
The article goes on to state the following:
Morrison was escorted into the Capitol roughly 15 minutes before the scheduled 8 a.m. deposition. He declined to answer questions from reporters.
NPR broke the news Wednesday that Morrison will be leaving his role at the White House:
A senior administration official confirmed Morrison’s departure late Wednesday evening. “After more than a year of service at the National Security Council, Mr. Morrison has decided to pursue other opportunities – and has been considering doing so for some time. We wish him well,” the official said.
