Following the testimony, Congressman Schiff said this is a story about "an effort to coerce, condition, or bribe a foreign country into doing the dirty work of the president, investigations of his political rival, by conditioning U.S. taxpayer money, by conditioning a meeting that President Zelensky desperately wanted and needed to establish that relationship with the most powerful patron of Ukraine, the United States of America".
Morrison was briefed about the meeting but did not attend.
Mr Trump has dismissed the impeachment inquiry as "presidential harassment". He told lawmakers overheard a call between Trump and Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to the European Union, in which the president inquired about Ukraine's willingness to carry out investigations of the Bidens.
But Morrison says Eisenberg later told him that he did not intend for the call summary to be placed on a highly classified server.
In a phone call with the Ukrainian president, Trump said Yovanovitch is "going to go through some things" - the former ambassador said the remark "sounded like a threat". The conversation is central to the House impeachment inquiry.
In her opening statement, Yovanovitch said she did not tell Ukrainian officials who they should or should not prosecute.
Trump on the call with Zelenskiy pushed for Ukraine's new president to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden and his son.

Marie Yovanovitch was removed from her post as a senior diplomat by the Trump administration earlier this year.
The White House on Friday said "zero evidence" of any wrongdoing by President Donald Trump was presented at the impeachment hearing by a Congressional panel, asserting that the former United States envoy to Ukraine deposed she was unaware of any criminal activity involving the president. Trump asked Sondland, referring to Zelenskiy, according to Holmes' testimony. The President has steadfastly denied accusations of a quid pro quo.

Responding directly to Mr Trump's tweet, in which he appeared to blame her for upheaval in Somalia, Ms Yovanovitch replied: "I don't think I have such powers, not in Mogadishu and Somalia and not in other places".
The call was the day after Trump had spoken to the newly elected Zelenskiy, requesting a "favour" and suggesting the Ukrainians investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. Trump says he did nothing wrong.
And ironically (given the person in the White House right now), she quietly observed that "corrupt leaders are inherently less trustworthy, while an honest and accountable Ukrainian leadership makes a U.S".
