The White House on Friday released a record of an April discussion between President Donald Trump and Volodymyr Zelensky, who had then just won Ukraine's presidential election. It was released just as Marie Yovanovitch, the ousted U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, arrived for open testimony in Democrats' impeachment proceedings. The discussion is largely congratulatory. Democrats are focusing in their impeachment inquiry on a July 25 discussion between Trump and Zelensky, in which Trump asked his counterpart to "look into" former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Trump calls the inquiry a "witch hunt."
