Trump Debunks Asking Attorney General To Clear Him On Ukraine - TheCityPulseNews.com
US President Donald Trump has denied asking the justice department to clear him of wrongdoing over a phone call with Ukraine’s president that is at the heart of an impeachment inquiry. Attorney General William Barr declined Mr. Trump’s request to clear him in a press conference. The president has dismissed the reports as a “con job”. The Democratic-led inquiry hinges on whether Mr. Trump pressured Ukraine on that call to investigate a rival. Mr. Trump denies using US military aid as a bargaining chip to prod Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky into launching a corruption investigation against Democratic White House contender Joe Biden. The US president, a Republican, has repeatedly insisted his call with Ukraine’s leader was “perfect”. “The Justice Department already ruled that the call was good,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday. The president appeared to be referring to a statement issued by the Department of Justice in September, saying it had “reviewed the official record of the call and determined, based on the facts and applicable law, that there was no campaign finance violation and that no further action was warranted”.
