White House national security official testifying in impeachment inquiry to step down soon

Washington (CNN)Tim Morrison, the top Russia and Europe adviser on President Donald Trump’s National Security Council, is expected to provide one of the most revelatory testimonies to date in the House Democrat led impeachment inquiry on Thursday, one day after it became clear he will soon be leaving his job, according to a source familiar with the situation and a senior administration official. On the eve of his testimony, Morrison told his colleagues of his plans to leave the administration, a decision that was his and has been “planned for some time” given that he was an ally of former national security adviser John Bolton, who was fired by Trump in September, the source familiar said. Morrison appeared before investigators Thursday, and he is expected to corroborate key elements of a top US diplomat’s account that Trump pressed for Ukraine to publicly announce investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, using military aid the country sought to fight back against Russian aggression as leverage, sources told CNN. There is not evidence of wrongdoing by either Biden.The House Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena Thursday morning for Morrison’s testimony after an attempt by the White House to direct him not to appear, an official working on the impeachment inquiry told CNN.Morrison will also become the second White House official to testify who was on the July 25 phone call when Trump pressed his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate the Bidens, according to a rough transcript of the conversation released by the White House and witness testimony of officials familiar with the situation. It was one of Morrison’s deputies, Alexander Vindman, who was the first official on the call to testify on Tuesday, telling lawmakers he raised concerns about the call to White House lawyers. Morrison, a lawyer, joined the administration last July as the senior director of Weapons of Mass Destruction and Biodefense where he was intimately involved in the Russia and North Korea portfolios.This summer, he was tapped by Bolton to replace Fiona Hill, who had been the White House’s top official on Russian affairs. Hill testified before the committees earlier this month. Creature of processMorrison’s hawkish views align with those of Bolton and he has been described as a creature of process by some close to him. Bolton always told those who worked for him that process was their protector and sometimes you have to listen to the person elected — advice Morrison adopted, sources said. Morrison is a lifelong Republican described as a Reaganite and is referred to as “‘Bolton’s Bolton,’ he is really hard right,” according to one source familiar with Morrison. A Baltimore native, Morrison attended law school at George Washington University and was planning to head to the Department of Justice when he graduated until an offer came in from former Arizona Republican Sen. Jon Kyl’s office. Morrison was impressed by Kyl’s record so accepted the offer. He spent more than 17 years on the hill — working for Kyl and the House Armed Services Committee — before joining the NSC. Bolton brought Morrison on at the NSC as a political appointee. The two men met over a decade ago when Morrison was working for Kyl and Bolton was Ambassador to the United Nations.When Bolton was fired, Morrison kept his job. The two old allies have been in touch on a personal basis but it is unclear if they have discussed the Ukraine probe specifically, according to a source close to Morrison. ‘It could have gone better’After the July 25 call took place, Morrison informed Bill Taylor, the top US diplomat in Ukraine, that it “could have gone better.” He told Taylor that Trump suggested Zelensky and his staff meet with Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Attorney General William Barr, according to Taylor’s testimony last week.Taylor meticulously documented how he believed the White House had conditioned releasing security aid to Ukraine and providing a one-on-one meeting with Zelensky on Kiev publicly announcing an investigation that could help the President politically. He said that Gordon Sondland, the US ambassador to the European Union, had told him that “everything” depended on the investigation being announced.His opening statement mentioned Morrison 15 times by name.Vindman, one of Morrison’s deputies at the NSC, told lawmakers that he raised concerns about that phone call — which lies at the heart of the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry — with lawyers at the White House. CNN has reported that multiple NSC officials could have raised concerns on the discussion, and Morrison could be one of them.Morrison is also an integral player because he was serving in the top NSC role when security assistance to Ukraine was put on hold in mid-July due to a review announced internally by the Office of Management and Budget — a review that CNN has reported never actually happened. While Morrison is expected to corroborate parts of Taylor’s account, he is also expected to paint a picture of the NSC keeping the train on the tracks and not carrying out any illegal actions.”The NSC process does not allow anything that isn’t legal. It just, it would never get to the President. Certainly not any process that Tim was ever a part of,” said a source close to Morrison. “A piece of paper does not get to the national security adviser without first going through the lawyers, much less to the President.”It is also unclear what Morrison will say when asked if there was a quid pro quo.Morrison has been “completely aligned with the end result of all the administration’s decisions,” the source said, without getting into the key details of all the elements of the administration’s process to reach decisions.He is not likely to say there was a quid pro quo, another source close to Morrison said, adding that Morrison will stay in the lanes of the policy process that he was following and directing.But Morrison will be asked to detail what he meant when he told Taylor, according to Taylor’s testimony, that he had a “sinking feeling” after learning about a conversation between Trump and Sondland. During that conversation Trump said he was not asking for a “quid pro quo” but he still “insisted” that Zelensky “go to a microphone” to announce investigations into Biden and 2016 election interference.Democrats seized on the information Taylor laid out as showing that there was a quid pro quo, but Taylor would not explicitly say that himself during his closed-door testimony, according to multiple sources familiar with what he said. Taylor said that was a legal definition lawmakers should decide on, and he was just there to provide the facts. One-on-one with Trump Unlike Taylor, Morrison has had one-on-one conversations with Trump throughout his 15-month tenure at the NSC, according to the source close to him. The fact they have interacted directly means Morrison will have to decide how he handles the constraints of executive privilege. In technical terms executive privilege is defined by interactions with the President — meaning there will be other ways Morrison handled or did his job that do not directly tie to Trump, which he will be able to reveal. Morrison views Trump as the same on TV as he is in person. “He’s not acting,” the source familiar with Morrison’s thinking said.He has grown to believe that Trump often has a long-term vision for where he wants policy to go, though he does not necessarily share his thinking with anyone and frequently encounters potholes along the way, sources said.Barbara Van Gelder, Morrison’s lawyer, told CNN that privilege issues are fact specific and they will be handled in accordance with the House rules if they come up during the deposition. Van Gelder would not provide comment further on Morrison’s testimony.CNN’s Jeremy Herb contributed to this report.

‘Black Beauty’ reimagines the classic horse story

“A mustang’s spirit can never be broken,” the wild horse of the title, whose thoughts are voiced by Kate Winslet, says at the outset, a statement that will be tested over the course of the movie.

Previously adapted in 1971 and 1994, Anna Sewell’s book has become a children’s literary classic, and the central girl-and-her-horse story dovetails with the brand for Disney+ — another entry for the kid-and-animal live-action bin, dating back to “Old Yeller.” Small wonder the streaming service acquired the completed film, which would have been a tough sell theatrically.

The narrative, however, moves at a pace much closer to a trot than a gallop, as the horse is caught and turned over to trainer John Manly (“Game of Thrones'” Iain Glen), a taciturn fellow who soon receives another new arrival: His recently orphaned teenage niece, Jo (Mackenzie Foy).

Both outsiders, the bond between the girl and the horse as executed here by writer-director Ashley Avis brings to mind “The Black Stallion,” including a shot of the two running along the beach that seems like an homage to it.

The story comes up a bit lame, alas, when Jo and Beauty move to a farm owned by a wealthy family, prompting the imperious matriarch (Claire Forlani) to snap “Our son’s fraternizing with the help” when their dreamy kid (Calam Lynch) begins spending time with Jo.

Beauty’s struggles don’t end there, as her move to the city exposes more of the mistreatment that horses endure in captivity, prompting her to ask in the narration, “How could some people not understand that horses can feel what they do?”

As well-intentioned as the film appears to be, it’s ultimately too inert, even with the changes, to make this familiar story leap off the page. “Black Beauty” isn’t bad, exactly, but rather the kind of flavorless fare that underscores how hard really good family viewing is to corral.

“Black Beauty” premieres Nov. 27 on Disney+.

The best Black Friday vacuum sales and deals

(CNN) —  

If it’s time to give your tired vacuum an upgrade, Black Friday is the time to do it, with deals on top brands like Dyson, Roomba, Hoover and more across a number of sites, from the brands’ own to retailers like Amazon and Target. We’ve rounded up some of the best deals on brand favorites running now through Black Friday — read on (and shop them) below.

These robotic vacuums by iRobot are majorly discounted on the brand’s website from November 19 all the way through December 5, giving you plenty of time to figure out what meets your household needs the most. One of our favorites? The Roomba i3+, which is on sale for $399.99, down from $599.99. It boasts a sleek-looking docking station that allows the vacuum to empty itself (you read that right), plus the ability to control your cleaning via the app or your preferred voice assistant.

Models are also on sale over at Target from November 22 through 28, with $120 off the brand’s 675 model. The e5 is also on sale for $249.99, down from $349.99.

Wayfair also has the Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum discounted down to $199.99, down from the originally $251.99.

  • Retailer(s): Shark (up to $75 off); Target (up to 50% off)

When it comes to getting the best range of deals, head straight to the brand’s website, which is currently offering a tiered slate of discounts on its vacuums. While some exclusions apply, you can find some great deals on handheld, upright and cordless vacuums, thanks to some magic discount codes: $20 off orders $100 or more (use SAVE20 at checkout), $45 off orders $200 or more (SAVE45) and $75 off orders $300 or more (SAVE75).

The Shark ION R76, one of the brand’s robotic models, will be on sale for $149.99, down from $299.99 at Target from November 22 through 28. Enabled with Wi-Fi to let you set the cleaning schedule, it picks up pet hair while steering clear of furniture and has three types of brushes for a super-clean scrub.

  • Retailer(s): Dyson (more than 30% off); Amazon (up to 25% off); Target (more than 40% off)

Dyson’s vacuums might be on the pricier side, but those who have ‘em love ‘em. Save big on select makes and models during the brand’s Black Friday deals, which span most major retailers as well as dyson.com.

Starting Sunday, November 21, at Amazon, you’ll be able to take $150 off the brand’s cord-free V10 Animal vacuum, which has incredible deep-cleaning suction, up to 60 minutes of run time and filtration that captures 99.99% of all particles, dust and allergens.

If you head over to dyson.com, you’ll also be able to take $150 off Dyson’s V8 Absolute cord-free vacuum, a lean, mean cleaning machine that converts to a handheld and comes with a ton of attachments to get every last dust bunny out from your home.

The vacuums will also be on sale at Target, with its Slim Ball Animal Upright Vacuum on sale November 22 through 28 for $199.99 instead of its usual $349.99. It has a super-maneuverable, self-adjusting head that means it detects the right level of cleaning for whatever floor type you have, without you having to do a thing — and it’s bagless, which eliminates one more step from your process.

  • Retailer(s): Target (more than 35% off)

Head to Target for big savings on one of Black & Decker’s best-known models. The iconic Dustbuster Hand Vacuum (the one you grew up with, but better) is $24.99 instead of $39.99 while Target’s Black Friday deals run from November 22 to 28. It’s a lifesaver for the little spills that come with the holidays’ flurry of cooking, baking and crafting — and it has a brush for the inevitable crumbs on the couch too.

  • Retailer(s): Amazon (up to 40% off)

Anker’s robotic vacuums are well loved and deliver when it comes to performance. There are some great deals on Eufy vacuums going on over at Amazon during the holidays, with models like the BoostIQ RoboVac 30c on sale for $179.99 instead of the usual $299.99 — a discount of $120 that’s pretty hard to say no to (in our humble opinion). Perfect for floors from hard laminate to medium-pile carpet, this dirt-sucker-upper works with Alexa, has 100 minutes of cleaning time and doesn’t sound any louder than your microwave.

The brand’s G30 is also on sale, marked down from $319.99 to $229.99. Beyond the ability to intelligently navigate (and hoover) your home, it has 2000Pa of suction to get every last crumb, hair and dust bunny off the floor, plus an automatically triggered BoostIQ to kick the vacuum into hard drive (aka 1.5x its normal cleaning power) when the vacuum senses it’s needed.

  • Retailer(s): Target (more than 50% off)

Hoover makes great midprice vacuums perfect for everyday cleaning, and there are some great deals going on at Target on the brand’s top-rated cleaners from November 22 through 28. The Hoover WindTunnel Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner is $110 off, marked down to $79.99 from $189.99.
