Ukraine President Zelensky defends Trump: ‘Nobody pushed me’

Yesterday, the White House released the transcript of a controversial July 25, 2019 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, 41.

An anonymous Deep State whistleblower claims that in the phonecall, Trump used the $400 million in U.S. military aid to Ukraine to pressure Zelensky to open a probe into possible corruption involving 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. The only problem is this: The whistleblower had not actually heard the Trump-Zelensky phone conversation, but based his/her accusation on hearsay.

Being who they are, absence of evidence never stops Demonrats from their never-ending persecution of  Trump — a duly-elected President of the United States. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used the hearsay phonecall as the pretext for the House to move to impeach Trump. Puffed up with faux righteous indigation, Pelosi said: “The president must be held accountable! No one is above the law.”

The 5-page transcript of the Trump-Zelensky phonecall shows that instead of being adversarial, the two presidents were warm and cordial. In the phonecall, Trump made no reference to the $400 million U.S. military aid, nor did he use the aid to coerce Zelensky. 

See my post, “Transcript of phonecall between Trump and Ukrainian president shows no wrongdoing“.

Yesterday, Sept. 25, at the United Nations General Assembly, in a joint appearance with Trump before reporters, President Zelensky confirmed what was said and not said in the July 25 phonecall.

Yahoo News reports that asked by reporters if he had felt pressured by Trump to investigate Biden, Zelensky said:

“I think you read everything. So I think you read text. I’m sorry but I don’t want to be involved to democratic open elections of USA. I think we had good phone call. It was normal. We spoke about many things. I think, and you read it, nobody pushed me.

Trump added, “In other words, no pressure.”

About Hunter Biden, Trump said that President Zelensky is “very, very strongly looking into all sorts of corruption,” and that when Hunter Biden “walks away with millions of dollars from Ukraine and … they’re paying him millions of dollars, that’s corruption.”

When Joe Biden was Obama’s Vice President, he lobbied for the removal of Ukraine’s State Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating a Ukrainian energy company that employed Joe’s son, Hunter Biden, who served until earlier this year on the company’s board and was paid a reported $50,000 monthly salary. The investigation into the company ended without charges brought against Hunter.

And the whistleblower complaint is BS, too. It’s second-hand information.

But the facts don’t matter to the dems. All they have is OrangeManBad. And the media will support every false claim.

Can’t wait for 2020 to blow up in their face.

From what I’ve seen so far there’s insufficient reason to accept the official narrative that the “whistleblower” was a single person acting through an intermediary and not a cutout fronting another conspiracy. In view of the now established historical pattern of criminal conspiracy among top level officials of the DOJ/FBI (for starters) and the Democratic Party to ruin DJT—and these are very real crimes constituting an attempt to overthrow the government of the United States—, the question is what has changed that would make similar conspiracy not the most obvious and productive line of investigation. The whistleblower is supposed to… Read more »

No doubt, the Obozo holdovers in the White House have been busy leaking to the press and creating new scandals for our President to deal with. The press mongrels are thrilled, so the show goes on. A disgusting lot of traitors and criminals at best. At today’s “Schiff” clown show, acting DNI Joseph Maguire was pelted with questions but denied the opportunity to answer. Most people seem to have forgotten the successful leftist coup that removed Ukraine’s duly-elected President and replaced him with their own lackey willing to do their bidding. They are now very unhappy with the Ukranian people’s… Read more »

Does anyone here know of a news organization called “The Veteran News”,or something like that? Someone I know keeps using them as her News Source,and from what I’ve seen,it’s a bunch of HOOEY. If I understood her last call right,there are now TWO other “Transcripts” of the Trump/Zelensky call,with one allegedly authored BY Trump. She says ALL THREE of them make Trump “guilty as Hell”. I can’t find anything online about two more Transcripts. And HOW do they come up with ANY legitimate transcripts when all they have is writings of notes and memories of the call? I’d sure HATE… Read more »

Thank you for this article, Dr. Eowyn. At the gym, where I workout in the morning there is one tv screen permanently on CNN or MSNBC. Every day they are on a non-stop impeachment drive. It changes weekly or monthly, due to whatever they dream up to accuse the President of. If they run out of one thing, they come up with another. It wouldn’t surprise me to seee them declaring his favorite breakfast food an impeachable offense.
