Once again Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky once again tells reporters that President Trump never made a quid pro quo offer. He has repeated this many times and the Democrats just shrug it off and say that Zelensky is afraid of President Trump. The only thing negative Zelensky said was that it was unfair for the president to withhold the money like he did. But, Zelensky never addressed the issue of possible mbezzlement of hundreds of millions of dollars taken from the IMF and USAID. He also failed to mention that Barack Obama withheld military aid at a time when Russia was making a move on Ukraine because he did not want to upset the Russians.
Breaking News: The President of Ukraine has just again announced that President Trump has done nothing wrong with respect to Ukraine and our interactions or calls. If the Radical Left Democrats were sane, which they are not, it would be case over!

Can you imagine if the police were to arrest a man for molesting a woman even though the woman claims the man never touched her or even talked to her? Yet, here we are and the Democrats are trying to impeach the president over a quid pro quo deal that never happened. Would the Republicans in the Senate ask Zelensky to testify in any impeachment hearing? Also former prosecutor Viktor Shokin that Joe Biden got fired for investigating his son would be a compelling witness.
The Intelligencer reported:
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has denied an explicit quid pro quo attaching investigations into President Trump’s political rivals to the release of U.S. military aid. But, in a new interview with Time and several European publications, Zelensky did say that delaying nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine was an unfair thing for a “strategic partner” to do.
“Look, I never talked to the President from the position of a quid pro quo,” Zelensky said. “But you have to understand. We’re at war. If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.”
The denial of a quid pro quo echoes similar statements Zelensky has made on the subject. During a joint press conference with Trump in New York last September, Zelensky was asked if he “felt any pressure from President Trump to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden?”
