Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) called on VP Mike Pence to come before Congress and come clean on Ukraine.
Sen. Harris said on MSNBC’s Hardball, “The Vice President has a lot to answer to. He also should be brought before the United States Congress to speak about what exactly was his involvement and what if any solicitations were made by the president to have the vice president engage in unethical conduct. And illegal conduct.”

As the Ukraine scandal grows, it is becoming apparent that Trump didn’t have a staff of enablers. He has built a cabinet of co-conspirators. Mike Pence was involved in the campaign to pressure Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden. Sen. Harris is on the frontline of what is going to be substantial pressure to impeach Mike Pence if the reports turn out to be true.
Pence needs to appear before Congress and come clean.
If he refuses to do so, the House may soon find itself opening up another impeachment investigation.
Pence sold himself to Donald Trump, and now he is set to go down with the sinking president.
