GOP report calls Trump actions 'prudent'

Share

The latest conspiracy theory Democrats have come up with to oust the Republican president features Trump allegedly conspiring with the Ukrainian president to investigate political opponents at home in exchange for USA military aid. That report is expected to be out tomorrow. "And he lies. Adam Schiff made up my conversation with the president of Ukraine", Trump said. Because of this, Trump's hesitation to meet Zelenskiy at the White House or provide financial assistance to Ukraine is "entirely prudent", the Republicans claimed.

"Everybody knows it", Trump said.

The 300-page report sets the stage for the impeachment of a U.S. president for just the third time in history.

"The fundamental disagreement apparent in the Democrats' impeachment inquiry is a difference of world views and a discomfort with President Trump's policy decisions", the report states.

House Democrats are conducting an impeachment inquiry into whether Trump abused his office by pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that could benefit him politically.

The White House dismissed the impeachment report issued by the US House Intelligence Committee saying it had "failed to produce any evidence of wrongdoing" by the president.

The Democrats' impeachment inquiry is not the organic outgrowth of serious misconduct; it is an orchestrated campaign to upend our political system.

Moreover, Zelenskiy underscored to interviewers this week what a hard position he was in - both wanting to accommodate Trump, but doing so appropriately, while continuing the military and other assistance Ukraine needs to continue to fight Russian and Russian-backed forces after their invasion of 2014.

He continued: "That's not my thing". I don't want us to look like beggars. But you have to understand.

The US leader then went on to once again praise Brexit, remarking that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson would do "a good job". It's not about a quid pro quo.

Trump brought up Hunter Biden during the July 25 call with Zelensky which is now at the core of the impeachment inquiry.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and majority Democrats in the House are undeterred. The new report signals the hand-off of the impeachment inquiry from House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) to House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). He's an expert on constitutional law and will be joined by three other law professors to discuss what the Constitution says about impeachment.

Democrats had pressed Trump to decide by Friday whether he would take advantage of due process protections afforded to him under House rules adopted in October for follow-up hearings, including the right to request witness testimony and to cross-examine the witnesses called by the House.

He told reporters during the 74th U.N. General Assembly, "I think you read everything". In fact, he had strong criticism for Mr Trump's actions in the Time magazine interview. Late Monday, Nadler released the names of the four witnesses.

Trump, speaking at a wide-ranging, almost hourlong news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in London, lashed out at Democrats in the House of Representatives who are leading the impeachment inquiry into the Ukraine matter and denounced the censure idea raised by some members of Congress as "unacceptable". "I think he's a very sick man", Trump said during a press briefing with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"The impeachment inquiry has found that President Trump, personally and acting through agents within and outside of the United States government, solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, to benefit his re-election".

"I did nothing wrong", he said.

"That's the one that people are really waiting for", Trump said.
