President Trump just authorized the release of a controversial call he had with the new president of Ukrainian.
Trump has been under fire from the left for blocking the release of a whistleblower complaint alleging he was holding up aid to Ukraine unless the country moved to curb corruption in the country.
The Dems cried foul and accused Trump of doing this in order to get political dirt on Joe Biden, a candidate who keeps slipping in the polls and who excites no one.
“I put no pressure on them, whatsoever,” Trump said of his call. “I could have, I think it would have probably possibly have been okay if I did, but I didn’t I didn’t put any pressure on them whatsoever, you know why because they want to do the right thing and they know about corruption, and they probably know that Joe Biden and his son are corrupt, they probably know that Joe Biden and his son are corrupt. Joe Biden and his son are corrupt.
“That call was perfect. It couldn’t have been nicer. Even the Ukrainian government put out a statement that that was a perfect call there was no pressure put on them whatsoever. But there was pressure put on with respect to Joe Biden. What Joe Biden did for his son, that’s something they should be looking at,” Trump said.
“When you see the readout of the call, which I assume you’ll see at some point,” he told reporters, they would understand the controversy was “nonsense.”
It should be noted that no one, not even Joe and Hunter Biden, believes Hunter got a $50,000 job on the board of a known corrupt company.
From CNBC: President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he has authorized the release Wednesday of a complete transcript of his phone call with Ukraine’s president.
The nature of that call has spurred calls by an increasing number of House Democrats for impeachment proceedings against Trump to begin.
“Biden does have a problem…I have to say 50k a month for Hunter Biden clearly to be selling influence otherwise no one would ever pay him that kind of money…for a company that was and has been pretty corrupt,” Ian Bremmer said today on CNN panel.
“It’s hard to think Biden wasn’t aware of this…If Obama had known about the reality of the situation he would have said get rid of this…
…Maybe Biden wasn’t aware but he should have been…he should have known that this would cause an issue.”
I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2019
