WAUKEE, Iowa – Vice President Mike Pence says he is working with theWhite House counsel’s office to release transcripts of his own calls with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. Pence says the phone conversations help exonerate President Donald Trump of any wrongdoing.

Pence was asked about releasing his transcripts and told reporters, “I’d have no objection to that.” He spoke after an event in Waukee, Iowa, where he addressed supporters about the president’s trade policy.

Pence says he “never discussed the issue of the Bidens” with Zelenskiy. He again defended the president, insisting that a “plain reading” of the rough transcript of Trump’s call with the Ukranian leader shows “there was no quid pro quo.”
