Vice President Pence is now officially at risk of being impeached along with Trump
On Friday, Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Eliot Engel (D-NY), and Elijah Cummings (D-MD) surprised Vice President Mike Pence's office when they sent him a letter requiring a treasure trove of documents from him.
The letter is making the Vice President reveal information related to “the Administration’s attempts to press the Ukrainian President to open an investigation into former Vice President Biden or election interference in 2016,” as well as “the reasons behind the White House’s decision to delay critical military assistance to Ukraine.”
This includes information relating to Pence's involvement in the scandal.
Remember, it was Pence who exerted pressure on Ukraine.
It was Pence who met with Ukrainian President Zelensky in Poland and “conveyed the news that hundreds of millions of dollars in US aid to Ukraine was not going to be released amid concerns about the country’s lagging efforts to combat corruption.”
One of Pence's top advisors was on the Trump call but Pence still denies knowing anything about it. That's odd, too.
House Democrats aren't buying it, and their letter stated this as much:
“Recently, public reports have raised questions about any role you may have played in conveying or reinforcing the President’s stark message to the Ukrainian President,” the chairs wrote in their letter. They continue:
The reports include specific references to a member of your staff who may have participated directly in the July 25, 2019, call, documents you may have obtained or reviewed, including the record of the call, and your September 1, 2019, meeting with the Ukrainian President in Warsaw, during which you reportedly discussed the Administration’s hold on U.S. security assistance to Ukraine.
If Trump goes down, Pence could be going down with him. You know that that means? President Nancy Pelosi. We're not saying that's what's going to happen but if this White House does get impeached, that's the result.
