[Ed. – Ms. Williams testified because she was a staffer who listened in on the July 2019 Ukraine phone call. She’s a State Department employee who was doing a hitch in the Executive Office of the Vice President (EOVP), which makes her situation similar to Eric Ciaramella’s (a CIA employee; his time at the NSC was served mostly on detail to the EOVP when Joe Biden was the VP). CENTCOM. Hmm. A lot of access to high-level info about policy on Iran and Iraq to be gained from that vantage point.]
Jennifer Williams, a foreign service officer and aide to Vice President Pence who testified in the House impeachment inquiry, has asked to leave her post early.
Politico reported Thursday that Williams, who is on detail from the State Department, plans to leave her position in Pence’s office early in order to join Central Command.
Pence’s chief of staff Marc Short subsequently told The Hill in a statement that Williams had requested an early departure from her role, set to end in March, and that the office is “evaluating her request.”
