Ask to know who gave the information about your call, according to two US newspapers

MADRID, Sep. 26 (EUROPE PRESS) –

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, said Thursday that “there must be a way,” including the judicial process, to prevent the Democrats from carrying out the investigation against him in the face of a possible political trial.

“It should not be allowed. There should be a way to prevent it. Perhaps legally through the courts,” he said. “The Democrats are going to lose the elections (2020 presidential) and they know it. That's why they do it,” he added.

He also reiterated that his controversial telephone call with his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodimir Zelenski, was “a perfect call” and added that the president of the European country “has said there was no pressure on him.”

The president of the House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, has launched the procedure that could trigger a parliamentary impeachment process (impeachment, in English) for considering that the president acted irregularly with her call to Zelenski.

In the conversation they both had, whose transcript unveiled the White House on Wednesday, Trump asked Zelenski to do what he could with the Attorney General's Office so that “Biden's son” was investigated.

The US president has refused to incur irregularities with that telephone conversation and has assured that he is being the victim of a “witch hunt” promoted by Democratic parliamentarians. Zelenski said, on the other hand, that the call was “normal” and that he did not feel “pressured” to investigate Hunter Biden.

On the other hand, the American newspapers 'The New York Times' and 'Los Angeles Times' have informed during the day that Trump told the staff of the US mission at the United Nations that he wanted to know who gave the information about his call to the official who raised the complaint, while saying that “it is something like a spy.”

“I want to know who is the person who gave the complainant the information, because it is something like a spy,” he would have pointed out, as these newspapers have indicated.

“They know what we used to do with old practices when we were ready, right? Spies and betrayal used to be managed in a somewhat different way than we know now,” he added, according to 'The Los Angeles Times.'

The statements would have been made during a private event at the Intercontinental Hotel in New York, after concluding four days of events and meetings on the occasion of the 74th General Assembly of the United Nations.
