Report: Democrats Choreographing Release of Secret Ukraine Impeachment Testimony So Media Can Help Make Case Against Trump
NBC News White House Correspondent Geoff Bennett reported Monday night on the plan by House Democrats to choreograph the release of secret Ukraine impeachment testimony transcripts so that the media can make the case against President Trump to the American people.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill about the release of Ukraine impeachment inquiry transcripts, November 4, 2019, via screen image.
Bennett posted to Twitter, “Today, we got the Yovanovitch and McKinley transcripts. Tomorrow, we’ll get the ones for Volker and Sondland. House Democrats are choreographing the releases so that the testimonies, when amplified by media reports, weave together the case against Trump, acc. to sources familiar.”
Bennett gained national prominence in October when he calmly dealt with attorney Robert Luskin who tried to muscle him away from asking questions of his client U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland as they walked on Capitol Hill to appear before the House Democrats’ Ukraine impeachment inquiry hearings.

While Democrats and the media are working together to promote the Star Chamber testimony transcripts to “weave” the case against him, President Trump is encouraging Americans to read the summary transcript of the July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky at the center of the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
