The Republican party of the United States presented the 123-page report, refuting the accusations against the American President Donald trump in violation of the law as a result of his telephone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky. Document published on the website of the party.
In the report, the Republicans opposed the trump accusations from members of the US Democratic party. “The investigation of impeachment and how it is carried out to Democrats, creating a dangerous precedent,” the document says. According to the Republicans presented evidence “does not confirm one of the statements of Democrats, and none of the witnesses on the part of Democrats in his testimony did not provide evidence about the presence of bribery, extortion or any other serious crimes.”
Republicans said that trump did not exert pressure on the Ukrainian authorities with demand to launch an investigation against the son of the former Vice-President of the USA Joe Biden, part of the management of the company Burisma. In the report they also claim that the witnesses do not support the assumption about the freezing of military aid to Ukraine until after its requirement.
“The initial reluctance of the President to meet with President Zelensky or provide taxpayer-funded United States assistance in the field of safety of Ukraine without careful consideration is perfectly reasonable,” write the Republicans, noting that, in the end, the President Zelensky took decisive action, demonstrating its commitment to the promotion of reforms. “President trump then provided assistance in the field of security of Ukraine and met with President Zelensky in September 2019 and all this without any action of Ukraine to investigate a political rival of President trump,” they say.
In addition, the report stresses that trump skepticism applies not only to assist Ukraine, but in General to anyone abroad. At the same time, according to CNN, the report did not specify the fact that the specific reasons for the denial of assistance to Ukraine was not made public. Text messages discovered in the investigation also show that the invitation of the White house was clearly associated with “investigations” which had been desired trump, not to General corruption. The fact that trump has met with Zelensky in the UN, does not refute the evidence that helpers trump put Zelensky certain conditions for the visit to the White house.
CNN notes that the release of refuting the accusations in the document, the Republican party ahead of the Democrats, because they are not yet officially published a report with their arguments. The report, which will be sent to the U.S. Senate to vote on impeachment, the Democratic party is going to present on Tuesday, December 3.
By trump on Twitter called the report Republicans “excellent work”, in fact, undermine the case against him. It is also advised to read transcripts of talks with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, to be sure. “Can we go to the Supreme court to stop it?” he wanted to know.
