Trump thanks Zelensky, saying Ukraine case is over

Trump thanks Zelensky, saying Ukraine case is over Trump thanks Zelensky, saying Ukraine case is over

But when asked whether he trusts Putin when it comes to peace talks, Zelenskiy says he doesn't trust anyone "at all".

"As for the United States, I would really want - and we feel this, it's true - for them to help us, to understand us, to see that we are a player in our own right, that they can not make deals about us with anyone behind our backs". It's not that those things don't exist.

"All branches of government were corrupted over many years", he said. "But that signal from them is very important", Zelensky explained.

The piece, entitled "Ukraine's Zelensky Is Making Headway Against Corruption".

U.S. President Donald Trump has maintained throughout the impeachment inquiry that he did nothing improper in his dealings with Ukraine, even as witnesses have detailed efforts by his White House to get Ukraine to take actions that could help him politically.

There's a great deal of confusion over this precise point. But the hold on the aid didn't become public until Politico broke the news in late August.

The key issue is whether Trump set up a "quid pro quo" - Latin for seeking one action in exchange for another - with Zelensky by holding back promised U.S. military aid for Ukraine until the Bidens were investigated.

When asked if he agreed that Russian interference in the U.s. election was a "hoax", U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale, the No. 3 State Department official, told a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, "No". But you have to understand that we are at war, said Zelensky edition. It's about fairness for me. Democrats have also claimed the "quid pro quo" could be present with the military aid being held for a meeting between Trump and Zelensky in the White House. "It just goes without saying", he added.

Trump hailed the interview on Twitter, writing that Zelensky "has just again announced that President Trump has done nothing wrong with respect to Ukraine and our interactions or calls". "If the Radical Left Democrats were sane, which they are not, it would be case over!".

Nothing wrong? How about "If you're our strategic partner, you can't go blocking anything for us"? Zelensky has on more than one occasion rejected that he was pressured by Trump, but there are reasons to be skeptical of this given Ukraine's deep reliance on the US.Impeachment witnesses, congressional lawmakers, and Ukraine experts have said Zelensky would never admit to feeling pressured or extorted because of Ukraine's culture and his need to keep the US on his side.

It's kind of like Trump's fallback line, "Read the transcript".

On July 25, Zelensky and Trump had a half-hour phone conversation, during which period Trump solicited a favour, asking Zelensky to investigate Trump's political rival and potential Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, over an alleged corruption scandal involving Biden's son.
