President Trump sier han er klar til å offentliggjøre en utskrift av hele telefonsamtalen han hadde med den nyvalgte ukrainske presidenten i juli. Demokratene truer med riksrett.
“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,” he said on Twitter on Sept. 24.
“You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!”
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said over the weekend that the call did not include Trump pressuring Ukraine’s leader.
“I know what the conversation was about and I think there was no pressure,” Prystaiko told the media outlet Hromadske. “This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on many questions, sometimes requiring serious answers.”
