UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee has published a complaint about the political scandal over the communication between President Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zielinski.
In the resounding nine-page complaint, an intelligence official accused President Trump of abusing power and ignoring national security interests in order to get another country to intervene in the next presidential election, the document said, noting that the White House tried to cover up the case and hide sensitive information.
The complaint confirmed that Trump in that call urged Zielinski to open an investigation, in cooperation with his attorney Rudy Giuliani and US Attorney General William Barr, in the activities of Hunter Biden, son of former US Vice President and Trump’s likely rival in the upcoming presidential elections, Joe Biden, who was in office Management of Ukrainian company Burisma working in the field of gas.
The official, who did not give his name, said he had not personally attended the July 25 call, but several White House officials assured him shortly after the call that senior White House figures had intervened to “shut down” all of the recordings and delete their full text from Government Electronic Network.
The complainant stated that White House officials had expressed concern about the matter, explaining that this was not the first time that the Trump administration had concealed a call because of its political sensitivity and not for national security reasons.
The complainant expressed fears that Trump’s actions pose a threat to US national security and undermine the shield’s efforts and counter any foreign interference in the upcoming presidential elections, saying that this behavior is a “serious or flagrant problem or abuse of power or contrary to the law.”
The commission released the document minutes before the hearing of acting US National Intelligence Director Joseph Maguire, who will try to explain to lawmakers why he has for weeks prevented the complaint from being handed to the appropriate congressional committees, despite the CIA’s classification of the CIA. Michael Atkinson, as a matter of urgent importance.
Democrats in Congress suspect that Trump used the file of US military aid to Ukraine as a tool of pressure on Zelinsky, especially since the contact took place after the White House decision to freeze nearly $ 400 million allocated to support the Ukrainian military.
It is expected that the publication of the complaint will give a strong impetus to the isolation measures that the House of Representatives intends to launch against Trump, especially as this document sheds light on the resounding case and confirms the presence of other eyewitnesses in it, hindering Trump’s efforts to submit the matter as a complaint filed by one opposition person. for him.
On his Twitter account, Trump accused Democrats of “trying to destroy the Republican Party and everything it defends,” and called on members of his party to rally around him, saying: “Our state is at stake.”
