Trump Allegedly Won’t Meet With Ukraine Leader Until Biden's Son Is Investigated
President Donald Trump allegedly communicated to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that he will not agree to a meeting unless the government investigates former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, according to The Independent.
Trump and others in the administration, along with the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, claim that Biden “pressured the Ukrainian authorities to drop an investigation into Burisma, an energy company operating in the country, on which his son Hunter was a board member.”
The House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Government Reform Committees are currently looking into whether any ethics violations have taken place, including Trump’s alleged refusal to meet with Zelensky unless he reopens the Biden probe.
Trump reportedly told Zelensky during a July 25 phone call to “reopen the Biden investigation if he wanted to improve relations with the US.”
House Democrats also claim that “Kurt Volker, the US special representative for Ukraine, was told to intercede with President Zelensky by the White House.”
