The lawyer says the president should be ousted "without delay" if a report is true that Trump told Ukraine 's president to investigate the 2020 Democrat.
The conservative attorney, a frequent critic of the president, was referring to a report in British newspaper The Independent that Trump allegedly told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden if he wanted to improve relations with the U.S.
Three House committees launched an investigation last week to determine if the president, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and possibly others pressured the “government of Ukraine to assist the president’s reelection campaign,” the committees said in a statement. The panels have demanded a transcript of the July phone call.
It’s possible the call is linked to a secret complaint from a whistleblower in the intelligence community reportedly concerning Trump and a troubling “promise” to a foreign leader. The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Thursday that at least part of the complaint involved Ukraine.
If this actually happened, @realDonaldTrump should be impeached and removed from office without delay. https://t.co/WkiA3yXPEx— George Conway (@gtconway3d) September 19, 2019Giuliani said in a CNN interview Thursday with Chris Cuomo that “of course” he recently pressed Ukrainian officials to investigative Biden.
“So you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden?” Cuomo asked.“Of course I did,” Giuliani answered. But then he clarified: “I didn’t ask them to look into Joe Biden. I asked them to look into the allegations that related to my client [Trump], which tangentially involved Joe Biden.”
Giuliani said Trump had “every right” to tell Zelensky to investigate corruption — though he insisted he didn’t know if the president did so.Story continuesTrump has been calling for an investigation into Biden’s connections to Ukraine since a Times report in May. According to the newspaper, the former vice president threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees in 2016 until Ukraine removed a prosecutor Biden had accused of doing nothing to fight corruption in the nation. But the prosecutor, who was removed, had been investigating an energy company whose board members included Biden’s son, the Times reported.
If the report in The Independent is true, pressure by Trump on the Ukrainian leader would mean a U.S. president essentially invited a foreign power to investigate an American citizen, which would benefit the president’s reelection campaign.In June Trump said he didn’t see anything wrong with accepting negative information about a political rival from a foreign power. “It’s not an interference,” the president told George Stephanopoulus on ABC. “They have the information! I think I’d take it.”

Economic meltdown threatens Europe's war on plastic
Giving a new life to plastic trash gets Carlos Bento out of bed every morning. But the coronavirus pandemic has seen revenues drop up to 40% at Micronipol, the large recycling facility he runs in central Portugal, and it faces an uncertain future.
Who cares what Conway thinks? Why? If Liberal corruption us found then it would lead back to Obama. Everyone will know the truth about the corrupt Liberal government. Joe Biden and his family should be charged with extortion! Obama should have been impeached when he promised Putin more flexibility after the 2012 presidential elections. Of course mainstream media got whiplash looking the other way. Obama is the most coddled human being ever.
Arrested too Tяussians need to all be indicted for the Treason Conspiracy that they are guilty of for the last 40 years. Who cares about what some Deplorican says to another Deplorican. I only wish we had an accurate news channel that would not interview Deploricans at all.

Whistleblower complaint against Trump rocking DC involves Ukraine WAPO reportsThe Washington Post adds to its reporting about the whistleblower inside the Trump administration who reportedly witnessed the president engage in something troubling enough to tell people about it – it involves a phone call Trump made to Ukraine . What will make the GOP say, “Enough!” I have no faith in Government. Nothing will happen because they don’t know how to deal w/corruption. Pelosi won’t budge. But was this “urgent?” This is very serious and impeachable, but this story was reported a while back. I personally think it has something to do with the spy. Did Trump “promise” Putin he would hand over the spy?
