Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko blew up Schiff’s sham impeachment on Thursday when he asserted that the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland never linked military aid to a Biden investigation.
The Democrats’ entire impeachment inquiry is based on the notion that President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine unless they investigated the corrupt Biden crime family’s involvement with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company that was paying Hunter Biden over $80,000 a month.
“I have never seen a direct relationship between investigations and security assistance.” said Prystaiko, “Yes, the investigations were mentioned, you know, in the conversation of the presidents. But there was no clear connection between these events.”
“Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations. You should ask him,” Prystaiko said about Sondland.
Recall, previously released text messages showed Gordon Sondland defending Trump and making it clear there was no quid pro quo in the President’s communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” Ambassador Bill Taylor said referencing a Politico article in a text exchange with Sondland.
Sondland responded by saying that was not what was happening. “Bill, I believe you are incorrect about President Trump’s intentions. The President has been crystal clear: no quid pro quo’s of any kind. The President is trying to evaluate whether Ukraine is truly going to adopt the transparency and reforms that President Zelensky promised during his campaign.”
Anti-Trump Ambassador Bill Taylor droned on for over 40 minutes on Wednesday in his opening statement during Schiff’s show trial and used third-hand info to attack Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
“Following that meeting, in the presence of my staff at a restaurant, Ambassador Sondland called President Trump and told him of his meetings in Kiev. The member of my staff could hear President Trump on the phone, asking Ambassador Sondland about ‘the investigations,’” Ambassador Bill Taylor told lawmakers on Wednesday.
“Ambassador Sondland told President Trump that the Ukrainians were ready to move forward. Following the call with President Trump, the members of my staff asked Ambassador Sondland what President Trump thought about Ukraine. Ambassador Sondland responded that President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden, which Giuliani was pressing for,” Taylor added.
Ukraine received military aid from the US three weeks early and Zelensky did not launch an investigation into the Bidens in exchange for the aid — NO QUID PRO QUO, NO BRIBERY.
