Witnesses Admit Hold On Aid Was To Ensure It Was In Line With Administration Priorities

REP. ADAM SCHIFF: But let me turn, if I can, to the hold of security assistance, which I think you both testified you learned about in early July. Am I correct that neither of you was provided with a reason for why the President put a hold on security assistance to Ukraine? 

MS. WILLIAMS: My understanding was that OMB was reviewing the assistance to ensure it was in line with Administration priorities, but it was not made more specific than that. 

SCHIFF: Colonel Vindman? 

LT. COL. VINDMAN: That is consistent.
