The House has released the deposition transcript of a career Defense Department official who is responsible for policy toward Russia and Eastern Europe, including Ukraine.
House investigators spoke with Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Laura Cooper in October as part of its ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Key questions for Cooper centered around the holdup of military aid to Ukraine over the summer. Other witnesses in the inquiry have testified that the aid was contingent on a public commitment from Ukraine to battle "corruption," and to investigate Trump's political opponents in particular.

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
