Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, told the House Intelligence Committee on Nov. 19 that President Donald Trump's July 25 call with Ukraine's president was "unusual.” Williams also said the White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, directed that aid to Ukraine be kept on hold despite the advice from State Department and Defense Department officials. Williams' statements came as part of her opening statements during a public impeachment hearing on Nov. 19 in which she and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer who works for the National Security Council, testified. Both Williams and Vindman listened in on the July phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
