The President of the United States of America, Trump believes that his accuser must no longer hide behind the curtains. A few days ago a whistleblower had blamed Trump for pressurizing Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his competitor Joe Biden. Post the allegation Trump’s words were, “Like every American, I deserve to meet my accuser, especially when this accuser, the so-called ‘Whistleblower,’ represented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a totally inaccurate and fraudulent way”.
Defend Against Whistleblower
Trump has not only defended himself against the whistleblower but, has also stood up against the top democratic lawmaker Adam Schiff who blamed him for the same. Trump stated that he wants Schiff questioned for fraud and treason. The Republic party have rather praised Trump by calling him the real “whistleblower” as he suggested Ukraine to investigate the corruption held inside Biden and his son.
Trump’s personal lawyer
Rudy Giuliani who is Trump’s personal lawyer mentioned to ABC’s “This Week”, that if Trump had not asked for an investigation of Biden, that would be the true violation of the constitution and that trump is just being targeted by Democrats. Other supporters mentioned that, during the reign of Barack Obama, Biden in order to protect his son Hunter (who was accused of corrupt practices in Burisma Holdings) had forced Kiev to lay off the country’s top prosecutor. These claims have been hidden underground and no proof was found that showed any false activities done by the Bidens. However, a July transcript bring to light, Trump insisting Kiev to reopen the issue assuring him that US Attorney General Bill Barr and Giuliani would be in touch.
Speak the truth: Nancy Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi who is a leading speaker mentioned (to Trump), ‘Speak the truth. Honor your oath of office to the Constitution of the United States. Don’t make this any worse than it already is.”
The Democrats are all in for their side of the story to be proved correct. They seemed to have ordered Mike Pompeo (Secretary of State) to turn over Ukraine-related documents and prepare for a testimony by the witness. Schiff told NBC that he is expecting a testimony to be given by the whistleblower and that all the safeguarding will be provided in terms of his identity. CBS news released a lawyer’s letter which stated that, the anonymous fears the matter will become more dangerous thus, putting a risk at his safety and hence, is hesitant to reveal the identity.
Democrats stated that, formal charges against Trump can be completed within a month and quickly voted on in the house, where the party believes that it stands a majority. Biden via a letter accused Giuliani to be a lair and stated that the networks of the US TV, should no longer ask him to come for interviews.
What Public Want ?
A poll done by the CBS survey showed that the public is demanding to know the hidden truth. However, Trump appears confident in his fellow party members in gaining a Republican majority to avoid a conviction, even if the accusation is accepted by the House.
