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.”

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
