Daily Mail: Latest Impeachment Witness: I Wasn’t Worried That Trump Broke the Law With Call

Tim Morrison backed up some details—and disputed others—about the now infamous call with the Ukrainian president. But he did say he didn’t think it crossed a legal line.

Tim Morrison, a senior White House official who listened to President Donald Trump’s controversial call with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, said he did not worry Trump broke the law on the call. He also said he was not aware of any meaningful material being left out of the White House’s memo on the call.

“I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed,” he said in a prepared statement to Congress obtained by The Daily Beast.

After the call between Zelensky and Trump took place, Morrison directed that the transcript of it be put on a secret White House server. He said that the memo the White House released about the call is, to the best of his memory, complete and thorough. Another witness, NSC official Alex Vindman, suggested that noteworthy parts of the conversation were missing from the White House’s memo.

WNU Editor: You know it was not a good day for those who are looking for evidence to impeach President Trump when they leak out that today’s witness testimony was at odds with what the Committee’s star witnesses (William Taylor and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman) had previously said. From the above Daily Beast article ….

…. Tim Morrison, a senior White House official who listened to President Donald Trump’s controversial call with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, said he did not worry Trump broke the law on the call. He also said he was not aware of any meaningful material being left out of the White House’s memo on the call.

“I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed,” he said in a prepared statement to Congress obtained by The Daily Beast.

After the call between Zelensky and Trump took place, Morrison directed that the transcript of it be put on a secret White House server. He said that the memo the White House released about the call is, to the best of his memory, complete and thorough. Another witness, NSC official Alex Vindman, suggested that noteworthy parts of the conversation were missing from the White House’s memo.

If the transcript according to Tim Morrison is accurate (and there is no mention of a “quid pro quo”), then these reports are wrong …. Impeachment deposition: NSC official corroborates testimony linking Ukraine aid to investigations (CNN). Ex-Trump aide confirms Biden probe sought, says not illegal (AP).

We also learned today that it was this witness, Tim Morrison, who directed that the transcript of this call be be put on a secret White House server. My gut tells me that he was uncomfortable with Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s push to edit/alter the transcript. After-all. If he felt that it was accurate, why alter it? I am speculating now, but it looks like Tim Morrison wanted to protect the integrity of the call, and that he was not comfortable with what Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman wanted to do with it. Hence Tim Morrison ordered the transcript to the vault. As for Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. We know he was upset that his demand to edit the transcript was refused, and that he lodged a complaint. But to me that in itself is strange. I have worked as a UN translator, and there have been instances where there was a difference of opinion on what was said on important discussions. We would make a note of it, and leave it like that. We would not rush and complain to someone. But Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman did1 More to the point he even claimed that President Trump was threatening national security?!?!? Who elected  Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman to be President? He does not have the mandate to dictate US foreign policy, but the main stream media are circling the wagons around him. Just imagine if this had happened in the Obama administration, and an NSC official objected to the President Obama’s Iran deal. Would he be accorded the same coverage that Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is receiving now? We all know the answer, and it will be a big NO! But that is the state of Washington today.
