On Politics A.M.: Aides Say Trump’s Ukraine Call Was ‘Inappropriate’

Two White House aides recalled concerns about the president’s call with his Ukrainian counterpart.

Good Wednesday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.

  • In the second week of impeachment hearings, two White House national security aides recalled their concerns about President Trump’s conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart. Both aides called his request for Ukraine to investigate political rivals “inappropriate.” Read more about the testimonies here and a rundown of what we learned here.
  • Mr. Trump quickly went on the attack against the two aides, even though both still work at the White House. “This is the first time in history I am aware of a White House openly attacking its own staff — especially for merely upholding their constitutional duties,” a former aide of President George W. Bush remarked.
  • Gordon D. Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union who is set to testify on Wednesday, has a lot of explaining to do. He will have to answer for several inconsistencies that have emerged in his story so far.
  • The demographic changes in the city of Yakima, situated in a fertile farming valley in Washington, mirror trends across the United States where the population is becoming increasingly less white. This is what the changes look like up close.

Today’s On Politics briefing was compiled by Isabella Grullón Paz in New York.
