Ukraine’s president reportedly came quite close to making the announcement of investigations President Trump wanted.
As Trump was pushing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to publicly announce the opening of investigations involving Burisma, the gas company where former Vice President Joe Biden’s son served on the board, and supposed Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election, “high-level Ukrainian officials ultimately decided to acquiesce to President Trump’s request,” The New York Times reports. They were hoping to receive the U.S. aid that had been frozen; the House of Representatives is investigating whether Trump improperly withheld this aid in order to get Ukraine to open investigations that might help him in the 2020 election and damage Biden politically.
You know what you call a quid pro quo that involves hundreds of millions of dollars in order to secure a personal favor? Extortion.
Trump and his political supporters are not interested in America. They solely wnat money and power, and will screw us and America to maintain that.
