Two more transcripts from the impeachment inquiry depositions were released Saturday. In one transcript, Jennifer Williams, a foreign policy aide to Vice President Mike Pence who was listening in on the July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said that Trump's insistence that Kyiv carry out investigations during the call seemed "unusual and inappropriate." She also said she viewed parts of the discussion to be based on Trump's "personal political agenda." The House also released the transcript of the testimony delivered by Tim Morrison, a national security official. Morrison also testified that he was uncomfortable with the phone call. He added that Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, viewed by many to be a key figure in the inquiry, was acting on Trump's behalf when he spoke to a Ukrainian official about exchanging military aid for political investigations.
