Donald Trump’s likely rival in the US presidential election in 2020, Joe Biden, said that Trump in a conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky put his interests above the state. He wrote on Twitter, posting his official release.
“Our President has put personal politics above his sacred oath. Congress (the House in Biden’s tweet is The House of Representatives) needs to do its job and attract Donald trump to responsibility for the abuse of power. I will try to do everything possible to put forward my candidacy for President, which will mean real help for those who need it most in our country,” Biden said.

He also called on the US Congress to stick to the facts and take prompt action.
In the world, the scandal has already begun to be called “Monica Zelensky” – by analogy with the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which led to the announcement in 1998 of the impeachment of bill Clinton. Congressmen felt that Clinton deserved impeachment, but he retained his post: most representatives in the Senate found the President not guilty.
