On Tuesday, President Donald Trump revealed the real reason why he withheld $391 million in military aid to Ukraine in a series of tweets.
“The D.C. Wolves and Fake News Media are reading far too much into people being forced by Courts to testify before Congress,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “I am fighting for future Presidents and the Office of the President. Other than that, I would actually like people to testify.”
“Don McGahn’s respected lawyer has already stated that I did nothing wrong,” he continued. “John Bolton is a patriot and may know that I held back the money from Ukraine because it is considered a corrupt country, [and] I wanted to know why nearby European countries weren’t putting up money also.”
“Likewise, I would love to have Mike Pompeo, Rick Perry, Mick Mulvaney and many others testify about the phony Impeachment Hoax,” President Trump added. “It is a Democrat Scam that is going nowhere but, future Presidents should in no way be compromised. What has happened to me should never happen to another President!”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The Democrats are accusing Trump of “bribery” in an attempt to “pressure” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate alleged corruption involving the Ukraine-based energy company Burisma Holdings and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
Allegations of wrongdoing on the Bidens’ part have been swirling for years after Hunter landed a lucrative position on the board of Burisma despite having no direct experience to warrant the role other than his father’s newly appointed role of overseeing U.S.-Ukraine relations. The former vice president famously bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations in January 2018 about getting Ukraine’s top prosecutor, who had been looking into Burisma for alleged corruption, fired by threatening to do exactly what the Democrats are accusing Trump of doing: withholding U.S. money.
The President has a right to be concerned about the Biden family's potential corruption considering former Vice President Biden admitted in public that he got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired who was looking into his son's business dealings.
"I’m desperately concerned about the backsliding on the part of Kiev in terms of corruption … [I]t just happened to be [Ukraine] was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine," Biden stated at a public event. "And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to — convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t."
Biden then went onto brag about being responsible for firing the prosecutor.
"So they said they had — they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said — I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars," he bragged. "I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a b*tch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time."
