Trump Says Impeachment Case Should Be Over After Zelensky Denied Wrongdoing

Ukraine President Denies Quid Pro Quo With Donald Trump

"That's not my thing", Zelensky said in a wide-ranging interview with TIME magazine released Monday.

"Look, I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo".

"I don't want us to look like beggars", he continued. But you have to understand. "And if you are our strategic partner then you should not block any help".

"It doesn't mean that Russian Federation didn't, but I think North Korea did", he said. 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.

The alleged quid pro quo is at the centre of the ongoing impeachment inquiry which has embroiled U.S. President Donald Trump and his administration. 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. Trump said on "Fox and Friends" on November 22.

"Of course they help us, and I'm not just talking about technical help, military aid, financial aid. These are important things, very important things, especially right now, when we are in such a hard position".

Crystal Palace manager Hodgson: Townsend game is honesty personified
A hamstring problem for Van Aanholt is likely to see Hodgson hand Schlupp his first start since November 3 at Watford. Palace continued to fight against Bournemouth after that, and went on to goalless at half-time.

Zelensky did not literally say that Trump did nothing wrong. "The server, they say Ukraine has it". "I don't trust anyone at all. Everybody just has their interests".

The four-way worldwide peace summit will feature the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany, with hopes that a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine would be found.

Within the meeting, Zelensky was asked for concerning Trump's state that he stood up the navy assistance to ensure that Ukraine was taking actions to combat widespread corruption. "Everyone hears that signal".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo specified he comprehends that Ukraine's leaders would certainly require assistance from the United States which the Trump management has actually sustained the Ukrainian people. Its sources are routinely identified only as "Ukraine activists" or just "activists", giving US intelligence Ukraine experts and Ukraine officers cover. "And we are working to clean that up. But that signal from them is very important", Zelensky explained.

But a rough transcript of a July 25 telephone call shows that Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate whether Biden, while USA vice president, pressed Ukraine to fire Ukraine's top prosecutor to stop a probe of Burisma, a gas company which Biden's son Hunter had worked for as a director.

"The Ukrainian president came out and said very strongly that President Trump did absolutely nothing wrong, that should be case over", he said.
