ShareJanuary 16, 2020 "I was indicted for making a perfect phone call!". So the US president, Donald Trump, on Twitter
I JUST GOT IMPEACHED FOR MAKING A PERFECT PHONE CALL!- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 16, 2020
The accusation is that, in the phone call, Trump put pressure on the Kiev leader to open an investigation into Ukraine for corruption on his rival Joe Biden and his son, in exchange for the release of military aid from the United States.
Very quick process
On the day when the impeachment process formally opens in the Senate, which focuses on his call to the Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump still defined the process "a scam" and a "shame" but he also said that the process of Senate impeachment "should be very quick", and he doesn't seem to be concerned about it: "I will probably go to Davos and meet the great business leaders and foreign political leaders," he told reporters in the Oval Office.
I'm going to Davos for the Wef
"We are doing so well and I want to do more," he said referring to the American economy and its possible participation in the World Economic Forum summit, which will take place in Davos, Switzerland from 21 to 24 January, just on the days when will celebrate the impeachment process.
He violated the law
The Trump administration has violated the law by freezing military aid to Ukraine. This was stated by the independent observatory of the Government Accountability Office which points the finger at the White House. "The law - he accuses himself - does not allow the president to replace the political priorities decided by Congress with his own priorities". Meanwhile, Ukrainian police have opened an investigation to find out whether the former US ambassador to Kiev, Marie Yovanovitch, removed by Donald Trump, was under surveillance by people linked to Rudy Giuliani.
