Donald Trump was accused of repeatedly pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son before giving Ukrainian aid. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on September 24 that he will conduct a formal impeachment investigation against Trump.
Trump, who is attending the UN General Assembly in New York, has written a counterattack on Twitter, criticizing this as the Democratic Party’s witch-hunting operation.
Pelosi announced the launch of a impeachment investigation after a closed meeting with Democratic lawmakers, saying that Trump’s actions seem to have undermined national security and unconstitutionality. She stressed that the president must be accountable and no one can override the law. Pelosi was accused of not being willing to start the impeachment procedure, but then asked about the opinions of the party members and finally made a decision. According to the statistics of CNN, among the 235 Democrats in the House of Representatives, at least 162 people now support the start of impeachment.
When Pelosi attended an event sponsored by The Atlantic earlier, he said that if Trump mentioned in his conversation with Zelensky that he wanted to investigate his political opponents, this self-certified incident. It is not right. She stressed that the United States will not seek help from foreign governments in the election. She also pointed out that the Acting National Intelligence Director, Joseph Maguire, did not immediately report to the Congress when he received information about the call, which was considered illegal.
According to the Washington Post, Trump and Zelensky had a week before the phone call, and had instructed the White House aides to suspend the $400 million (about HK$3 billion) aid that had been passed by Congress.
Trump angers “hunting witch”
Trump immediately sent a counterattack on Twitter, referring to the important day of the UN General Assembly. His official duties were busy and very successful. However, the Democrats used more “breaking news” to deliberately destroy and devalue these work, criticizing it as “hunting.” Witch Hunt garbage, which is also described as a harassment of the president.
Trump previously said that he had authorized the opening and closing of the “complete, fully decrypted and unremoved” call records of Zelensky on the 25th, and said that the outside world would see a very friendly and perfectly suitable call. He criticized Pelosi and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler and others who had not seen the complete call record and conducted an impeachment investigation. The criticism was entirely witch hunting.
