The Democrat’s impeachment sham is based on a whistleblower complaint that suggests that during a July 25, 2019 phone call, President Trump attempted to strong-arm the newly elected Ukraine President Zelensky, by withholding military aid as a way to force him into opening an investigation into the corrupt Burisma Holdings, where then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter was a board member.
Although Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky denied the accusation made by the whistleblower, Democrat lawmakers persist, determined to prove that both President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky are liars.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told reporters in October that his controversial July call with President Trump involved no bribe, blackmail or quid pro quo, as impeachment-minded Democrats claim.
Zelensky said he believes the transcript released by the White House is accurate and that he knew the U.S. had withheld $400 million in military aid due to concerns about corruption and concern for American “taxpayer money.” But the issue, he said, was never linked to Trump’s desire that Kiev rekindle an investigation into an energy company with ties to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
“There was no blackmail,” Zelensky said. “They blocked this money and nobody asked us [for] anything,”
Newly-discovered facts by independent journalist John Soloman surrounding the alleged request by President Trump to open an investigation into Burisma Holdings in exchange for military aid, completely discredit the whistleblower claim.
According to Fox News – A newly unearthed document shows that Ukrainian officials had opened a new probe into the firm linked to Hunter Biden months before President Trump’s phone call with that country’s leader, Fox News contributor John Solomon reported late Tuesday.
Solomon said Tuesday on “Hannity” that the U.S. government knew Ukraine was planning to look again into activities at Burisma Holdings, an energy company that employed then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son as a member of its board of directors, early this year. The report is noteworthy because President Trump has been accused by Democrats of threatening in July to withhold foreign aid to Ukraine unless its new president pursued an investigation into the company and the younger Biden’s role there.
“The U.S. government had open-source intelligence and was aware as early as February of 2019 that the Ukrainian government was planning to reopen the Burisma investigation,” he claimed. “This is long before the president ever imagined having a call with President Zelensky,” he added, noting Petro Poroshenko was still Ukraine’s president at that time.
