September 30, 2019

He underlines his commitment to “clean the swamp” and, after requesting a meeting with the complainant, says that his complaint “does not hold”


The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has said that the denunciation of an anonymous official for his controversial call to the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, is “a fraud”, while he has suggested that the president of the Commission of Intelligence of the House of Representatives, Adam Schiff, for the reading he made to parliamentarians of the transcription of that telephone conversation.

“The complaint of the false anonymous whistleblower is not upheld. It is mostly based on the call to the President of Ukraine that, in the name of transparency, I delivered immediately to Congress and the public,” he said to the president of the United States, in a message posted on your personal Twitter account. “The complainant knew almost nothing. It's a second-hand transcript and it's a fraud,” he added.

Trump has re-charged the Democratic representative Adam Schiff, president of the House of Representatives Intelligence Commission, whom he has accused of “inventing a false and terrible statement” to tell the transcript of the call to Zelenski.

In his opinion, what Adam Schiff told in Parliament “is unrelated” to what Trump said in his conversation with Zelenski, so he wondered if there should be “an arrest for treason.”

Subsequently, the US president has reiterated that the president of Ukraine said he did not receive pressure from Trump to investigate Hunter Biden for his work for a Ukrainian gas company. “Case closed!”, He stressed in another message on Twitter.

Finally, Trump has asked himself “who has changed the rules of a lifetime for whistleblowers just before the complaint was sent” from the call to the President of Ukraine and has reiterated his promise to “empty the swamp”, before pushing the English Twitter tag #fakewhistleblower (false whistleblower).

Late on Sunday, Trump said he has the right to meet with the anonymous whistleblower who filed the complaint over Ukraine's call and warned that there will be “great consequences” for the performance of that official and the sources that informed him.

“Like any American, I deserve to meet with my accuser, especially this accuser, this so-called informer, who presented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a totally inaccurate and fraudulent manner,” he said.

In addition, he accused Schiff of “inventing” what he said in his call to Zelenski “lying to Congress.” “His lies were perhaps made in the most brazen and sinister way ever seen in the great House (of Representatives). He wrote and read terrible things and then said they came out of the mouth of the president of the United States. I want him to Schiff is interrogated at the highest level for treason and fraud, “he said.

Trump has thus pronounced on the controversy arising from the complaint filed by a government official for his controversial telephone call on July 25 to the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, a conversation in which the tenant of the White House asked him Do “a favor” and summoned the Ukrainian to put the Ukrainian Attorney General to investigate the son of former US Vice President Joe Biden.
