Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday he is working with the White House counsel's office to release transcripts of his own calls with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
Pence said records of his two phone conversations would 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.
An Arizona politician ran an adoption fraud scheme that promised pregnant women thousands of dollars to lure them from a Pacific Island nation to the U.S., where they were crammed into houses to wait to give birth, sometimes with little to no prenatal care in what prosecutors called a human smuggling case.
Paul Petersen, the Republican assessor of Arizona's most populous county, was charged in Utah, Arizona and Arkansas with counts including human smuggling, sale of a child, fraud, forgery and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
The charges span about three years and involve some 75 adoptions. Investigators also found eight pregnant women from the Marshall Islands in raids of his properties outside Phoenix, and several more are waiting to give birth in Utah, authorities said.

"Sesame Street" is taking a new step to try to help kids navigate life in America — it's tackling the opioid crisis.
Sesame Workshop is exploring the backstory of Karli, a bright green, yellow-haired friend of Elmo's whose mother is battling addiction. The initiative is part of the Sesame Street in Communities resources available online.
"Sesame Street" creators said they turned to the issue of addiction since data shows 5.7 million children under age 11 live in households with a parent with substance use disorder.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he's planning to get involved in the case of an American diplomat's wife who left the U.K. after becoming a suspect in a fatal wrong-way crash.
Trump, who spoke with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson earlier in the day, told reporters at the White House that the case was "a terrible accident" and that he understands the "tremendous anger" some are feeling.
"We're going to speak to her very shortly and see if we can do something where they meet," he said of the woman and the victim's parents. "We're going to speak to her and see what we can come up with so that there can be some healing."
