In the Ukraine affair, the pressure on U.S. President Donald Trump continue to increase. A U.S. Ambassador confirmed that his government Biden, the disbursement of military assistance to Kiev directly from Ukrainian investigations against Joe, and his son, depending on the has made.
This is from the published on Tuesday the Protocol of Gordon Sondlands testimony before congressional committees. Accordingly, the Ambassador to the EU, admitted in his testimony at 17. October a that he had made the connection between the military aid and the Trump desired investigation in a conversation with a Ukrainian government adviser.
Sondland have delivered to a member of staff of the Ukrainian President Volodimir Selenski is the message that the disbursement of military aid "will not likely" to be done, as long as the Ukraine give to the public an "Anti-corruption Declaration", said the Ambassador.

Trump denied on several occasions, to have the military aid, therefore, temporarily frozen to the required investigations to enforce. However, already the chief of staff in the White house, Mick Mulvaney had given a press conference in mid-October that the hold of the military was intended to help as a means of pressure to achieve investigations.
Mulvaney in front of invited in the house of representatives of the dominant Democrats, in the meantime, as a witness. You want him to hear on Friday. It is, however, unlikely that the chief of staff of the subpoena to comply.
The business, leading the US Ambassador in Kiev, William Taylor, had said two weeks ago that Trump had kept the grants in the amount of approximately $ 400 million targeted back. Trump had wanted to achieve, therefore, that Selenski to announce publicly that an investigation be set in motion that could potentially Trumps rivals Joe Biden of the Democrats damage.
Taylor pointed to a phone call Sondlands. This told him that both the frozen funds, as well as a scheduled visit Selenski in the White house of such a public announcement, hanging out.
The military aid had been held back for months, without the U.S. government called for publicly for a reason. The funds were then paid out in September finally, but without Selenski or other Ukrainian government representatives had made the presumed Trump desired public announcement of an investigation.
The Democrats in the U.S. house of representatives, before throwing the Trump to have his office abused, so that the Ukrainian government not to interfere in his favour in the election campaign. They suspect the President, have used military aid as a means of pressure to urge the Eastern European country investigations against Biden's son, Hunter. Trump rejects the. The White house said again, "that the President has done nothing wrong". (chk/sda)
