Another U.S. official is about to testify in Trump's case. Tim Morrison, a top Russia and Europe adviser on President Donald Trump's National Security Council, is expected to testify before House impeachment investigators next week and provide information about Trump's pressure on Ukraine in order to start investigations into the Bidens. It was reported by CNN.

Morrison's testimony is expected to be significant because he is a current White House official whose name was cited 15 times in Taylor's opening statement, which Democrats view as damning for Trump. Morrison was the one who listened directly to the July 25 call between Trump and the Ukrainian leader.

"We haven't decided what he's going to say yet. He's going to answer questions. That's where we're at right now. We haven't made final decisions on anything other than he'll appear with the subpoena," Barbara Van Gelder, an attorney for Morrison, said.

As we reported earlier, the head of the US diplomatic mission in Ukraine, William Taylor, testified in Congress on President Donald Trump's pressure on President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. It was reported by The Washington Post.

Taylor confirmed that the US president made Ukraine dependent on military aid in order to get the investigation on Joe and Hunter Biden's, as well as Ukrainian officials who were interfering the 2016 U.S, presidential election.
