A top national security aide to Vice President Mike Pence told House impeachment investigators that President Donald Trumps efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political opponents were unusual and inappropriate, and shed some light on possible other motivations for the presidents order to freeze military aid to the U.S. ally.

FWIW, I’d trust but verify first.
Consider the source.
How nice to out himself, now fire him.
Pence needs new staff.
No aide can dictate foreign policy, whether they think it appropriate of not. As a matter of fact, none of these aides or bureaucrats know all of the facts and on balance the president truly does.
She is going down.
Why the hell are all these unelected bureaucrats “listening in” to calls between the leader of the Free World and the president of a foreign country? I doubt anyone other than Harry Hopkins “listened in” to calls between FDR and Churchill or between Eisenhower and Khrushchev. This entire structure of overpaid, often useless bureaucrats needs to be renovated and replaced; I never voted for Jennifer Williams or the creep Vindman or the whistleblower, Eric Ciaramellow. What the hell are they doing making policy?
I certainly have always had doubts about Pence...
Jennifer Williams, who serves as Pences special adviser for Europe and Russia, told investigators in early November that she took notes while she listened in on Trumps July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky from the White House Situation Room, adding that she viewed Trumps requests for investigations as politically motivated.
Politico can cram it.
She was a well known Trump hater .
Her appointment left people shocked here.
What is Pence up to ?
Pence needs to replaced .
This is no accident .
Why did the WH HR dept let her in ?
Who is running the HR dept there ?
How does this still happen after the first 3 years .
An “aide” considers something the president did inappropriate. Who gives a rat’s backside what some ignorant Democrat deep-state dweeb thinks. I think everything that the turd did when he and the wookie were befouling the white hut “inappropriate.”
My thoughts exactly.
Objection - Opinion.
Pence’s penchant for having Never Trumpers in prominent staff positions has always undermined his protestations of loyalty to Trump and his agenda.
War is coming.
What the hell does politically motivated even mean in this context? Isnt every decision in a functioning government like ours ultimately a political one?
As long as American citizens are in need, I oppose all foreign aid, so screw Pence & his underlings.
More of the same. I, Mr. or Ms. career bureaucrat felt that in my opinion the President was inappropriate. Why? Cause he was doing things in a way I, Mr. or Ms. career bureaucrat did not like.
Wash, rinse, repeat and report on breathlessly.
If they manage to down Trump, theyd get rid of Pence with even less effort.
Maybe that’s why Nikki Haley is suddenly positioning herself as a Trump ally.
