US Vice President Mike Pence informs that he is working on the release of transcripts of his telephone conversations with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, Politico reports.

Pence said that he was just working with the White House's Counsel on that issue.

At the same time, the newspaper noted that Pence had avoided direct answering to questions about his awareness of any actions committed by Trump’s administration aimed at forcing Ukraine to investigate the Bidens' family.

"Let's say very clearly that President Zelensky stated that there was no pressure ... And a clear reading of the transcript shows that there was no "quid pro quo" in Trump's conversation with President Zelensky," the US Vice President said.

Pence claims that he "never discussed the Bidens’ issue" with Zelensky. He added that the recordings of two of his telephone conversations would help to justify President Donald Trump.

As we reported earlier, the transcript of the phone talk of Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and U.S. President Donald Trump dated July 25 was published by the White House.

The number of the American media reported that Trump tried to convince Zelensky in the necessity to start the investigation against Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden. Besides, the U.S. President “urged him about eight times to work” with lawyer Rudi Giuliani on the investigation against Hunter Biden.
