Ukraine wants to stay out of U.S. domestic affairs

House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced formal impeachment proceedings against Trump on the heels of reports that Trump withheld almost $400 million in security assistance to Ukraine while pressuring the foreign government to investigate former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son.

He also said that his administration would not publish the transcripts of the phone call he had with the United States president on July 25.

"We can not be ordered to do anything".

Schiff opened the hearing with a parody imitation of Trump speaking like a mob boss to pressure Zelensky to investigate the Bidens.

Pompeo, traveling in Italy to meet with the country's president and prime minister, ignored shouted question about the impeachment inquiry. He didn't elaborate on what could trigger an eventual probe.

On Wednesday, Sept. 25, the White House released a reconstructed transcript of Trump's phone call to Zelensky in hopes of settling down suspicions of wrongdoing on the President's behalf. The call sparked a Congressional impeachment inquiry now dominating the US political landscape.

Lawmakers at the Democratic-led House of Representatives are exploring concerns that Trump's activities have jeopardized national security and the ethics of USA elections.

After witnessing years of devious behavior from the president and his administration, I support Pelosi's decision and believe that proceeding with a formal impeachment inquiry is the right thing-to hold the president accountable for his actions and to protect the spirit, integrity, and security of our democracy. Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "diplomatic practice doesn't envisage such publications". The whistleblower filed a complaint over the contents of the conversation back in August, saying Trump had tried to get a foreign power to interfere in a U.S. election for his own gain. The two-year, unlimited-resources USA special counsel probe ultimately found no collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign in the 2016 election. What is happening there - it's their own domestic political games.

With a tentative agreement in place for the whistleblower to testify before members of Congress, McMullin said that "the House Intel Committee should seriously consider limiting the number of members" who are allowed to learn the whistleblower's identity, "even as he testifies".

"We see the U.S.as our friend, our strategic partner", he said.

The scrutiny of the call with Ukraine, which came at a time when Trump had ordered USA aid to Ukraine put on hold, has prompted a wider examination of efforts by the Trump administration to engage foreign leaders in assisting with issues important to the President.

Zelenskiy sought to play down the situation involving Biden and his son's activities in Ukraine, calling it just one of many similar cases he discusses with foreign leaders.

There is no evidence that Biden or his son did anything wrong. The move came after infighting among camps in Ukraine's power structures.
