Zelenskiy Denies Reports Of Deal To Investigate Trump's Political Rival

Lindsey Graham on Tuesday said he is "1,000% confident" that Russian Federation, not Ukraine, meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, breaking from President Donald Trump and others in his party who have pushed the discredited conspiracy theory.

Zelenskiy also said that he has difficulty digesting Trump's continued claim that Ukraine is corrupt, a label that pre-dates Zelenskiy's time in office. Trump calls the inquiry a partisan "witch hunt" and neither he nor his lawyers have agreed to appear in an inquiry hearing on Wednesday.

"The fundamental disagreement apparent in the Democrats' impeachment inquiry is a difference of world views and a discomfort with President Trump's policy decisions", Nunes' report said.

The conflict in Ukraine, which broke out in 2014 after pro-Western politicians took power in Kiev and Russian Federation annexed Crimea, has killed more than 13,000 people.

By late February, Poroshenko, who was facing a tough reelection battle, had expressed openness to trading the bogus investigations for a USA state visit, according to the Wall Street Journal. I think that's just about fairness.

"I don't want us to look like beggars".

Hong Kong announces new commission to address ongoing protests
As Breitbart News reported , some draped themselves in US flags and expressed gratitude for the Trump administration's support. The two earlier marches yesterday appealed to US President Donald Trump for help and demanded that police stop using tear gas.

Over the last few weeks, current and former White House officials testified before the House Intelligence Committee and debunked the baseless conspiracy theory that the government of Ukraine, not Russian Federation, interfered in the 2016 presidential election. "We're at war", Zelensky said.

But when asked whether he trusts Putin when it comes to peace talks, Zelenskiy says he doesn't trust anyone "at all".

In the weekend interview, Zelensky argued that support from the USA on the world stage is crucial in the face of continued Russian aggression. "The President can say that they meddled because they had a preference, the elected officials, that's not the current people".

"The United States of America is a signal for the world - for everyone".

"I would never want Ukraine to be a piece on the map, on the chess board of big global players, so that someone could toss us around, use us as cover, as part of some bargain", he said. "Investments, banks, stakeholders, companies, American, European, companies that have global capital in Ukraine, it's a signal to them that says, 'Be careful, don't invest.' Or, 'Get out of there'". Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told NBC News that the theory had been debunked by USA intelligence agencies.
