Trump Administration Official Who Plans To Leave WH Says Trump Did Pressure Ukraine For Help: Report
Tim Morrison, an adviser to Donald Trump’s National Security Council, confirmed this week that acting Ukraine ambassador Bill Taylor’s testimony before the House was true.
This week, Taylor told members of the House that Trump attempted to withhold security aid and dangle a White House visit to pressure Ukraine to help in the president’s re-election campaign, according to The Washington Post.
According to sources familiar with his deposition, Morrison told House impeachment investigators that he alerted Taylor to the scheme, but said he did not necessarily see the president’s demands as improper or illegal.
According to The Post, Morrison told colleagues Wednesday that he plans to leave the Trump administration.
