(CNN)In newly released testimony, two aides described concerns raised as they listened to President Donald Trump discussing political investigations with Ukraine’s leader.
Tim Morrison, a former National Security Council official, voiced his concern after the call to the top NSC lawyers out of concern the call could leak. Morrison said he wanted to ensure the top attorneys, not their deputies saw the call.
Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, told House investigators “the mention of those specific investigations” during the July 25 Trump-Zelensky call “seemed unusual as compared to other discussions with foreign leaders.”
“I believed those references to be more political in nature and so that struck me as unusual,” she said.
