Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky just officially ended Nancy Pelosi’s reign of impeachment terror by publicly denying her main charge.
He said there was – and he did not equivocate, he flat out said there was no quid pro quo.
Now, even if Trump had dangled aid for anti-corruption work he would have been doing the same thing as every president before him has done and what Joe Biden publicly bragged about doing.
That said, if Zelensky is publicly mocking the Democrat’s main impeachment offense it is not good for Pelosi and the Dems.
From The Hill:
Ukraine’s president says in a new interview that he never discussed a “quid pro quo” with President Trump, but criticized any blocking of U.S. security aid for his country at a time when it is at war with Russia.
“I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing,” Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with Time published Monday.
“I don’t want us to look like beggars. But you have to understand. We’re at war,” he said. “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…
… In the interview with Time, Zelensky added that he wanted to improve Ukraine’s image on the world stage, pointing to Trump’s frequent insistence that the country is rife with corruption.
“When America says, for instance, that Ukraine is a corrupt country, that is the hardest of signals,” the president said.
“It might seem like an easy thing to say, that combination of words: Ukraine is a corrupt country. Just to say it and that’s it.
But it doesn’t end there. Everyone hears that signal. Investments, banks, stakeholders, companies, American, European, companies that have international capital in Ukraine, it’s a signal to them that says, ‘Be careful, don’t invest.’ Or, ‘Get out of there.’”
