President Trump Says He ‘Fully Supports Transparency’ On Whistleblower Complaint
Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the push for his impeachment is a “hoax”. Once again denying any wrongdoing with the Ukrainian president during July during which he held former Vice President Joe Biden. A potential 2020 rival Pushed to investigate.
“No push, no pressure, nothing – it’s all a hoax, folks. It’s all a big hoax,” Donald Trump said.
Donald Trump’s remarks have overshadowed a fateful day of revelations, accusations, and counter-accusations that have shaken Washington. Will likely play an important role for the 2020 presidential election. A result of his investigation was release after a July investigation with the Ukrainian president, and Donald Trump’s Republican colleagues claimed that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi had made a fatal error by investigating impeachment on the president over the allegations. Meanwhile, Democrats say they believe the caller’s account provides sufficient evidence of Trump’s alleged wrongdoing.
At a news conference in New York, Donald Trump also said that he has spoken with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Republicans and that they “fully support transparency” on whistleblower information.
He raised some questions about Ukraine’s calls, rather than mostly meetings with the economy, trade, world leaders and other matters.
Congressional members review whistleblower account
On Wednesday afternoon. congressional leaders and members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees were still allowed to view the classified whistleblower account.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-California, said he found the allegations “deeply disturbing”, “very credible,” “well written” and a roadmap to follow from “other witnesses”.Representative Eric Swalwell, D-California, said the report was “serious, immediate and credible. We should hear from the whistleblower” through testimony.
The committee would ask Acting Director of National Intelligence
He also considered all the talk of NPR and said that he did not see the full report and that the committee would ask Acting Director National Intelligence Joseph Maguire for more material in a meeting on Thursday.
“It is really unfortunate that this is the first time in the history of whistleblower law for the intelligence community that we are being prevented from hearing from whistleblowers or having full reports,” he said.
Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., Said he planned to push Maguire on what were the motivations behind not turning the Whistleblower report into Congress.“It’s done very well. It’s thorough,” Krishnamoorthi said. “It raises a lot of questions as to what’s outside.”
Republicans were largely silent on Wednesday evening, but Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., Told CNN’s Jeff Zeleni that the complaint contained “real disturbing things”.“Republicans shouldn’t just circle the wagons and Democrats shouldn’t use words like ‘impeachment’ before they know anything about the real substance.” Sasse – who once criticized Donald Trump but Since then his support has been appreciated – said.
Rough transcript contradicts Donald Trump denials
Donald Trump defended the call, saying the record proves that he did not pressure the Ukrainian leader.But this is not silencing the movement toward impeachment in Congress – in fact, top House Democrats say it confirms the need for an investigation.
President Donald Trump said he decided to issue a call recap, saying, “I was just getting fake news like this, I thought it would be better.”Donald Trump also said that he would be ready to issue a prior call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, along with talks that Vice President Pence was with the foreign leader.
Earlier on Wednesday, Donald Trump appeared alongside Zelenskiy from New York, where the two denied that Donald Trump tried to pressure Ukraine into investigating Biden’s son Hunter.
Donald Trump emphasized that there was “no pressure” and that he and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. He said that insinuate that the little Biden had participated in corrupt activities in China and Ukraine. As stated here, Donald Trump and Giuliani have provided no evidence of wrongdoing.
When asked if he was pushed to investigate Hunter Biden, Zelenski said, “I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be involved in democratic, open elections in the United States.” He described the phone call as “good” and “normal”. “We talked about many things,” Zelenskiy added later, adding, “Nobody pushed me.”
But largely the transcript contradicts those denials. Donald Trump initially stated that “we do a lot for Ukraine.” He asks Zelenski about a “favor”, later to tell him “I would like to find out what happened to this whole situation in Ukraine” and Bidens.
Democrats move forward on the impeachment inquiry
Earlier, on Wednesday. Pelosi said in a statement that “transcripts and acting in the Department of Justice’s rogue behavior confuse the need for an impeachment investigation to entangle the president’s lawlessness.”
Pelosi said, “I respect the president’s responsibility to engage with foreign leaders as part of his job. It is not part of his job to Use taxpayer’s money to shake up other countries for the benefit of his campaign.”
Schiff called the president’s conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart “a classic mafia-like shakedown of a foreign leader”.In Capitol Hill on Wednesday. He said, “The call notes have conceived far more conversations than I or many others had imagined.”
Donald Trump pushed back during his press conference, calling it a “right” and “beautiful” call. He argued that Pelosi was allowing more liberal members of his caucus to push for impeachment proceedings.“When Nancy Pelosi allowed her position to be taken into the hands of radical Far-Left socialists, or worse, that’s pretty bad,” the president said.
Donald Trump also said that he thought impeachment was dead after former special counsel. Robert Mueller released his report into Russian interference in the 2016 election.“What these Democrats have done to ruin lives is very sad,” Donald Trump said.
Schiff said that he did not want him to go ahead with himself when the House voted on the writ of impeachment.”It will be a decision for us when we finish our investigative work whether it brings this or other matters to the vote in the form of articles.”He said.”And we will cross that bridge when we come near it.”
Donald Trump has betrayed his oath of office
“But one must have no illusions,” he continued, “about the seriousness of being already uncontested – and that is that the President of the United States has betrayed his oath of office and in doing so our national Sacrificed security. “
In a joint statement, Schiff and Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., And Rep. Eliot L. Engel, DN.Y. including Other House committee chairmen, said, “No quid pro quo is required to betray our nation.
Donald Trump asked a foreign government to intervene in our elections – enough to be unfaithful.”. Corruption exists whether Donald Trump threatened or not – explicitly or implicitly – that military aid could be halted due to lack of cooperation. “
Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, a frequent GOP critic of the president, called the memo “deeply troubling”. Speaking at a conference in Washington, Romney said: “If the President of the United States asks or presses the leader of a foreign country to conduct an investigation into the political nature. He was upset.”
Republicans defend Donald Trump
Other Republicans, however, rallied to protect the president. R-Fla., A fervent endorsement of Trump, said the memo of the call showed that Pelosi “has functionally ‘catfished’ as a politically fatal impeachment based on rumors that Based on incorrect evidence, and based on incorrect evidence. Politically bloodlust for the President who does not serve our country well. “
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., Calling the rough transcript of the call “underwhelming”. Graham said, “Impeachment over this? Does nothing (non-quid pro yo) burger. Democrats have lost their minds when it comes to President Trump.”A dozen GOP members of the House and Senate gave advance consideration of the memo at the White House meeting, which was attended by White House counsel Pat Cipollone.
One of the attendees, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wyss, said, “We certainly didn’t see any quid pro quo,” and, while also employing the culinary metaphor, “It’s turning into a real nothing burger.”
The document released by the White House is a “memorandum“, which is “not a verbatim copy of a discussion. The text in this document records notes and memorabilia of situation room duty officers and [National Security Council] policy staff” assigned to listen. And memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place.”
Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry
Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry Tuesday, with no access to the transcript. But she said the very first day that proof of Quid Pro Quo was not a “requirement”.Pelosi described Donald Trump‘s actions as “an oath of office, a betrayal of our national security. And the betrayal of the integrity of our elections.”
“The president will be held accountable,” Pelosi said. “no one is above the law.”She had previously resisted pressure from more liberal members of his caucus who were pushing for impeachment.
Impeachment – a formal charge of wrongdoing against the president – maybe pass in a Democrat-controlled House. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton: Only two presidents have been impeached in history. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. President Richard Nixon was staring down an impeachment vote amid the Watergate scandal. But resign before formal impeachment articles brought forward.
However, no president was ever convicted in the Senate and later removed from office. And such a feat would be difficult in the GOP-controlled Senate, where 67 votes would be required.
