Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said that Russia had a hand in the scandal around the conversation of US President Donald Trump with Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky. She said this on MSNBC.
“By the way, I think Russia had a hand in this,” she said, stressing the inadmissibility of interference by any state in the US elections.
At the same time, the American politician did not provide any evidence of her claim and did not explain what exactly Moscow’s involvement in the situation around the possible impeachment of the President of the United States.
The head of the House of Representatives Democrat Nancy Pelosi on September 24 announced the beginning of the impeachment procedure of Trump. Such a statement she made after the American press reported about Trump’s attempt to put “pressure” on Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky in the investigation against the son of Joe Biden. It was noted that in return the American leader promised to resume military assistance to Ukraine.
On September 25, the US presidential administration published a transcript of the conversation between the leaders of the two countries. According to the provided transcript, Trump did talk about the Biden Jr. case, but the issue of resuming military aid was not mentioned. In turn, Pelosi said that the released information does not remove Trump’s responsibility and the Democrats will continue the impeachment procedure.
