Pence Advisor Throws Trump Under The Bus, Says Ukraine Call Was ‘Unusual’ And ‘Clearly Political’
Vice President Mike Pence’s national security aide Jennifer Williams spoke in front of Congress on Thursday as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
According to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, Williams thought that the infamous call between Donald Trump and the Ukraine President was highly “unusual” and it was clearly political in nature.
Jennifer Williams, the national security aide detailed to Pence's staff, testified she never heard him mention anything about 2016 election investigations, Burisma or Bidens, per @Rene_MarshCNN. She said she found Trump's July call unusual because it was political in nature.

Typically calls with foreign leaders stay away from politics and deal instead with foreign policy and matters of state. Williams said that didn’t happen in this case.
