William Barr denied a request to openly liquidate the president's fault.

President Donald Trump refused to request the judiciary by talking to the Ukrainian president at the center of the impeachment investigation.

According to US media, Attorney General William Barr has rejected President Trump's request for a press conference to declare that there are no violations of the law.

President Trump called this story the "con office".

Democratic-led investigations depend on whether President Trump has pressured Ukraine on its demands to investigate rivals.

Trump refuses to use US aid as a bargaining chip to start corruption investigations against Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Democratic White House contender Joe Biden.

According to the rough report card, President Trump suggested that Zelensky work with Barr during the call.

A Justice Department spokesman later said that Mr. Ba did not know what was mentioned by the president until a few weeks after his call.

The Republican US president repeatedly argued that the call with the leader of Ukraine was "perfect."

Trump said Thursday that the Justice Department has already decided that the call is good.

The president appears to have mentioned a statement issued by the State Department in September, saying that "we have reviewed the official record of the currency record and decided that there are no campaign financial violations and no further action in accordance with the facts and applicable laws." Guaranteed. "

After the Washington Post released a story about President Trump's claim to Barr, the president called the report "degenerate." Since then, other media, including the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and the BBC's US partner CBS News, have told similar stories.

The House Democratic Party will hold its first public hearing next week in impeachment investigation.

The first appearance of Bill Taylor is the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine.

In a private hearing last month, Taylor said the president withdrew about $ 440 million (about $ 330 million) from US aid.

In August, an anonymous informant wrote a letter on July 25 stating concerns about Trump-Zelenski's calling. President Trump rose shortly after withholding military aid to Ukraine.

At the request of Republican colleagues, the identity of whistleblowers has been closely guarded by Democrats. Whistleblower lawyers told investigators that the client would be happy to answer written questions.

In general, the conservative Fox News Network, which supports Mr. Trump, instructed hosts not to identify accused whistleblowers. Other right wing media outlets have already done so.

Most media organizations, including the BBC, have no source.
