What are the Dems going to do? Accuse the duly elected leader of a sovereign and independent nation of being a liar and stooge of another world leader?

 

Wait, they already do that, every day, for three years, so this should be easy for them to refute. 

 

 

Associated Press:

KYIV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s president insisted Thursday that he faced “no blackmail” from President Trump in their phone call that helped spark an impeachment inquiry, distancing himself from the U.S. political drama and trying to claw back his own credibility.

 

Volodymyr Zelensky said for the first time that his country would “happily” investigate the conspiracy theory pushed by Trump that it was Ukrainians, not Russians, who interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. And he encouraged U.S. and Ukrainian prosecutors to discuss investigating a gas company linked to the son of Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden.

 

But Zelensky insisted he’s not Trump’s puppet, and his moves appeared to be an attempt to put an end to questions dogging the Ukrainian president since details of his July 25 call with Trump emerged. He said U.S. officials have presented zero evidence of Ukraine’s interference in 2016, but it’s in his country’s interests to find out once and for all what happened.

 

In an all-day “media marathon” held in a Kyiv food court, Ukraine’s president played down suggestions that Trump pressured him in exchange for U.S. military aid to help Ukraine battle Russian-backed separatists. Congressional Democrats are concerned Trump may have been holding up the aid to use as leverage to pressure Ukraine and advance his domestic political interests.KYIV, Ukraine — 

 

 

CBS News:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says there was "no blackmail" in a phone call with President Donald Trump that helped spark an impeachment inquiry.  Zelensky said at a "marathon" press conference in Ukraine's capital on Thursday that he didn't know at the time of the call that the U.S. had blocked hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine. 

"We didn't speak about it," he said. "There was no blackmail."

 

BBC:

Speaking to reporters at a news conference in Kiev on Thursday, Mr Zelensky said of his 25 July call with Mr Trump: "There was no blackmail. It was not the subject of our conversation."

 

He said the purpose of the conversation was to arrange a meeting with Trump, and there were no "conditions" from the American side. 

Mr Zelensky also said he does not believe US-Ukraine relations will be affected by the impeachment inquiry.
