'Trump dispatched Pence with thinly veiled messages about heeding his demands' - USA Today & others

Asking Ukraine to 'play ball' and a 'lock down' of records: Takeaways from the whistleblower report

And Mr. Trump has put the powers of his office behind his agenda: He has dispatched Vice President Mike Pence and top administration officials with thinly veiled messages about heeding his demands about confronting corruption, which Ukrainian and former American officials say is understood as code for the Bidens and Ukrainians who released damaging information about the Trump campaign in 2016. This summer he froze a package of military assistance to Ukraine even as the country, eager to build closer relations with Washington, continued to be menaced by its aggressive neighbor Russia. - USA Today

Trump said he was not the only one to speak to Zelensky. “I think you should ask for Vice President Pence’s conversation because he had a couple of conversations also,” Trump said. - HuffPost

"The Vice President reiterated the United States' unwavering commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity," the readout adds. "The Vice President commended President Zelenskyy's administration for its bold action to tackle corruption through legislative reforms, and offered full U.S. support for those efforts."
