In a stark departure from previous impeachment witnesses, Timothy Morrison, a former deputy assistant to the president and the National Security Council’s former senior director for Europe and Russia, delivered an opening statement of less than two pages Tuesday.
Morrison, who listened in on the call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that formed the central part of the intelligence community whistleblower complaint sparking the Democratic-led impeachment investigation, said, “I feared at the time of the call on July 25th how its disclosure would play in Washington’s political climate. My fears have been realized.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I understand the gravity of these proceedings, but I beg you to not lose sight of the military conflict underway in Eastern Ukraine today, the ongoing illegal occupation of Crimea, and the importance of reform of Ukraine’s politics and economy,” Morrison testified. “Every day that the focus of the discussion involving Ukraine is centered on these proceedings instead of those matters is a day when we are not focused on interests Ukraine, the United States, and Western-style liberalism share.”
