VP Pence Has Something To Hide

December 7, 2019

There are many stories each day about the impeachment process now underway in Washington.  But this story rises to the top of the reading pile for who it points a finger at for carrying too much water for Donald Trump.

A national security aide to Vice President Mike Pence submitted additional classified evidence to House impeachment investigators about a phone call between Pence and Ukraine’s president, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff revealed Friday.

In a letter to Pence, Schiff (D-Calif.) asked the vice president to declassify supplemental testimony from the aide, Jennifer Williams, about Pence’s Sept. 18 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, arguing that there is no “legitimate basis” to keep it secret.

“Having reviewed the supplemental submission, the committee strongly believes that there is no legitimate basis for the Office of the Vice President to assert that the information … is classified,” Schiff added in his letter to Pence, whose office has refused to turn over a slew of documents that investigators requested in October.

Schiff’s letter represents the first sign that House impeachment investigators are still actively pursuing the Ukraine investigation, even after they compiled a 300-page report detailing what Democrats say is a campaign by President Donald Trump to pressure his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate his political rivals.

There is no doubt as to the fact Donald Trump led a conspiracy to use American foreign policy for his own personal partisan benefit. What is coming more to light as the evidence mounts is credible information linking the vice president to the dirty deeds and the conspiracy to keep it under wraps.
