Russia and Europe adviser on the National Security Council Tim Morrison testified in the Congress that U.S. President Donald Trump delayed the military aid for Ukraine demanding the statement about initiating the investigation against Bidens and Ukrainian Burisma company. CNN reported it referring to the informed sources. 

Particularly, Morrison confirmed last week's testimony from Taylor, currently the top US diplomat in Ukraine, about interactions the two had regarding the President's efforts to press for investigations while US aid to Ukraine was held up.

Morrison also said that US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland also confirmed that Trump would unblock the military aid for Ukraine in case the President of Ukraine or the Prosecutor General would announce the start of the investigation. 

"Mr. Morrison's testimony was very damaging to the Democrats' narrative," said Rep. Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican, suggesting that his testimony contradicts other witnesses.
"Some of the other witnesses have been less than candid," Meadows said.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the staffer of the White House and William Taylor stated that Trump obliged Ukraine to investigate Bidens' issue relating to Burisma company using unofficial ways. They admitted at the same time that Ukraine has not got the appropriate jurisdiction to take the case regarding former U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, so there are no grounds for the legal investigation in the country.
