Schiff noted that Morrison notified then-White House national security adviser John Bolton of the meeting and "was told by Mr. Bolton to go see the lawyers, which he did."

"Ms. Williams testified that the President's requests were 'unusual and inappropriate' and shed light on 'possible other motivations behind a security assistance hold,'" Schiff's statement continues.
