Mike Pence deep-sixed his aide’s impeachment testimony. Schiff says it ‘raises profound questions’

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff says the fact that Vice President Mike Pence has blocked the panel from seeing the supplemental impeachment testimony of a top aide who testified in the hearings calls into question what exactly Pence is trying to hide.

“If the Supplemental Submission accurately describes your September 18 conversation with [Ukrainian] President Zelensky,” Schiff wrote Tuesday in a letter to Pence, “it raises profound questions about your knowledge of the President’s scheme to solicit Ukraine interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.” Schiff added that the material also indicates that Pence’s original descriptions of his communications with Zelensky in a letter to the committee “may be purposefully misleading.”

Pence’s office classified the supplemental testimony from top national security aide Jennifer Williams regarding the contents of his Sept. 18 call with Zelensky. Williams made the supplemental submission on Nov. 26, and for weeks the vice president has been ignoring calls by the House Intelligence Committee to declassify the material.
