Morrison, who was on the July 25 Trump-Zelensky call testified Thursday that nothing illegal was discussed.
This is why Schiff is conducting the hearings behind closed doors.
Schiff doesn’t want the American public to know that President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was completely above board.
“I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed,” Morrison said.
“Morrison also testified that the memorandum of the call released by the White House is accurate to his recollection and he does not know the whistleblower’s identity,” reported CBS News White House correspondent Arden Farhi.

The Federalist reported that Morrison testified that the Ukrainians weren’t even aware that security aid was being delayed by the Trump Administration.
Morrison testified that Ukrainian officials were not even aware that certain military funding had been delayed by the Trump administration until late August 2019, more than a month after the Trump-Zelensky call, casting doubt on allegations that Trump somehow conveyed an illegal quid pro quo demand during the July 25 call.
“I have no reason to believe the Ukrainians had any knowledge of the [military funding] review until August 28, 2019,” Morrison said. That is the same day that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chief anti-Trump inquisitor in the U.S. House of Representatives, disclosed on Twitter that funding had been held up. Politico also published a story that day, sourced to anonymous leaks, that military funding had been temporarily held up.
There was no quid pro quo and no threats, yet the Democrats are moving full steam ahead with their Soviet-style impeachment proceedings.
