UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — US President Donald Trump “has sought to halt military support for Ukraine until it opens an investigation into rival Joe Biden and his son,” alleged to have written in his forthcoming book John Bolton, the former House National Security Adviser. White.
The allegations that shocked the public were made by the US media, namely the New York Times (NYT), which published a news headline “According to Bolton’s book, Trump linked aid to Ukraine to the investigation he wants to make.”
The NYT newspaper made the allegations by providing a manuscript of Bolton’s expected book to be published in March, entitled “The Room Where It Happened”.
“Bolton claims that Trump has told him he wants to stop military support for Ukraine until its authorities open an investigation into the Biden family,” the NYT wrote.
The allegation comes at a time when Trump is being tried in the Senate for abuse of office after it was alleged that he had asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to launch an investigation against Joe Biden, who is a presidential candidate in the Democratic Party.
Many Democratic senators have called the assertion very important and have said it could affect the Senate’s judgment.
Meanwhile, Bolton’s attorney Charles Cooper, in a statement to the Axios site, said the manuscript was sent in envelope for evaluation to the Office of the White House National Security Advisor on December 30, 2019 and added that the contents of the book it may have leaked to the public from there.
Earlier, Trump had claimed that Bolton “knows nothing” about Ukraine.
