On Saturday, the House Intelligence Committee released the closed-door testimony of Timothy Morrison, a former Trump aide who has corroborated crucial elements of a US diplomat’s allegation that the president pushed for Ukraine to publicly announce a probe into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Morrison, who recently resigned from his role on the National Security Council, says Gordon Sondland, the US Ambassador to the European Union, told him he had explained to a Ukrainian presidential adviser that it would be easier to release military aid to Ukraine if “the prosecutor general would go to the mike and announce that he was opening the Burisma investigation.”

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
