The House Intelligence Committee released transcripts from former United States Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor’s testimony on Wednesday. According to Taylor, Gordon Sondland, the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, tried to make sure that there was no record of Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

According to the deposition, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) asked Taylor how the call was different from other calls with heads of state.

“In the normal, regular channel, the State Department operations center that was putting the call together would stay on the line, in particular when you were having a conversation with the head of state, they would stay on the line, transcribe, take notes so that there could be a record of the discussion with this head of state,” Taylor explained.

“When he wanted to be sure that there was not, the State Department operations center agreed,” he continued. “And they told us, they said in response to [Sondland’s] request, they said, we won’t monitor and we certainly won’t transcribe because we’re going to sign off.”
