The 2020 election is getting closer and closer. US President Trump has been exposed to the Ukrainian investigation of the largest opponent, Biden, and the US Speaker has announced an impeachment investigation against Trump.
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially announced at a press conference on September 24 that the House of Representatives will begin a formal impeachment investigation of US President Donald Trump, saying that Trump violated the presidential oath and Obligations under the Constitution. “The president must take responsibility. No one is above the law.”
She said that six separate committees would report to her in the context of a formal investigation about the findings of Trump’s conduct during her tenure.
It is not clear how this will change the direction of existing surveys. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the US House Judiciary Committee, has described his team’s investigations as impeachment investigations, and several other committees have held hearings on Trump’s actions.
Recently, the US media broke the news that Trump put pressure on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a call eight times in July 2019, urging the country to investigate the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Biden (Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
The US media also broke the news that Trump had ordered a freeze on nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine in a few days before the call with Zelensky to cut off military aid and force Ukraine to investigate Biden.
The relevant news has caused an uproar in the US political arena. Public opinion has questioned that this is equivalent to letting foreign governments riskfully intervene in the US presidential election, just as Russia intervened in the US election in 2016.
In response to Pelosi’s impeachment investigation, Trump, who is attending the UN General Assembly, responded on Twitter for the first time, saying that the Democrats deliberately spoiled the situation, which was political persecution.
Later, Trump added: “The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, has obtained permission from the Ukrainian government to announce the entire contents of my conversation with the Ukrainian president.”
In response to the news of the US media, Trump also responded on September 21: “Fake news media and their Democratic partners hope to have a clear relationship with Biden’s needs. Biden asked the Ukrainian government to fire a man who investigated his son. Prosecutors, otherwise they won’t get a lot of money from the US. So they made up a story of a perfect routine call between me and the Ukrainian president. There is nothing wrong with our call, but the demand for Biden is completely thorough. Disaster. Fake news knows this, but they don’t want to report.”
Trump also said on September 23 that Biden and his son were very corrupt. But the fake news media don’t want to report this because they are Democrats. If a Republican did what Biden did and said what Biden said, he might now have taken the death penalty chair.
In response to Pelosi’s impeachment investigation of Trump, Biden stated on September 24 that if Trump refused to cooperate with Congress and submitted the call information, he supported the initiation of the impeachment procedure for Trump. “That will be a tragedy, a tragedy caused by himself.”
The Washington Post reported on the 23rd that this may be Trump’s worst scandal so far.
