Ukraine’s Zelensky again denies quid pro quo during Trump phone call
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky denied once again that President Trump used nearly $400 million in military aid as a bargaining chip to pressure him to launch investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine’s role in the 2016 US election.
“I did not speak with US President Trump in those terms: you give me this, I give you that,” Zelensky told German magazine Der Spiegel in an interview published Monday.
The July 25 phone call between Zelensky and Trump sparked the impeachment inquiry that is underway in the House.
Think about how ridiculous this impeachment is.— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) December 2, 2019
You have a "crime" which no one actually saw - i.e., bribery. Not only did no one observe it, the person in best position as a first-hand witness, Zelensky, says it never happened.
And for THIS, they want to overturn an election.
