Pence Chief Of Staff Struggles After Being Cornered By Chris Wallace Over Ukraine Debacle

On Sunday, Vice President Pence’s chief of staff Marc Short appeared on Fox News for an interview with host Chris Wallace. It didn’t go well.

During the interview, Wallace pressed Mr. Short over several topics, including conspiracy theories about Ukrainian interference in the 2016 elections, which have been characterized as Russian disinformation.

“It doesn’t have to be an either-or,” Short said on “Fox News Sunday” when Wallace questioned him on whether President Trump continues to believe Ukraine interfered in the elections.

“He thinks that we should at least investigate it, Chris…when Russia interfered in our election, Barack Obama was president and Joe Biden was vice president and Joe Biden himself said he was in charge of Ukraine policy, and his son is getting between $50,000 and $80,000 a month to serve on a board where he has no experience whatsoever,” Short continued, referring to the 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner and his son, Hunter Biden.

“It seems like we could never get enough investigation of foreign interference in our election for 3 years, but as soon as the president asks for it, it’s like ‘hey we must impeach him,’” Short continued.

“That’s not why it happened, as you know,” Wallace countered. “There was a phone call and the question of the conditionality of a White House visit and giving them military aid, it was on that basis [Trump] was asking for the investigation.”

Wallace also noted a Washington Post report that Trump had gotten the idea that Ukraine interfered directly from Russian President Vladimir Putin and told staff that “Putin told me.”

Short responded: “I never heard that.”

The House last week approved two articles of impeachment related to Trump’s request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son while U.S. military aid to Kyiv was being withheld.
