Schedule for additional depositions in impeachment inquiry revealed

Additional current and former aides are expected to appear before the House in the coming days as part of its impeachment probe into President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.

Ambassador Philip Reeker is expected to appear in a closed session Saturday and Charles Kupperman, former deputy assistant to the president for national security affairs, is expected to appear in a closed session Monday, according to an official who’s working on the impeachment inquiry.

The official said that Timothy Morrison, special assistant to the president and national security council senior director for Europe and Russia, is expected to appear in closed session on Thursday.

Morrison was mentioned during diplomat William Taylor’s testimony as someone who may be able to corroborate his assertions.

Taylor specifically described a phone call with Morrison in which Morrison allegedly said that Gordon Sondland, ambassador to the European Union, discussed a quid pro quo with Andriy Yermak, a representative for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“During this same phone call I had with Mr. Morrison, he went on to describe a conversation Ambassador Sondland had with Mr. Yermak,” Taylor testified Tuesday. “Ambassador Sondland told Mr. Yermak that the security assistance money would not come until President Zelensky committed to pursue the Burisma investigation.
