The United States of America government on Wednesday released a transcript of resident Donald Trump’s July 25 telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Allegations that Trump pushed Zelensky to investigate Trump’s political rival Joe Biden led the Democrats to launch a formal impeachment inquiry.
Biden’s son was involved with a controversial Ukraine businessman, but has not been prosecuted in Ukraine or been accused of any wrongdoing.
CBS News reported that the memorandum released by the Justice Department is not, according to the administration, a verbatim transcript.
It also said the text, according to the document released by the administration, is the record of the notes and recollections of the officers and National Security Council policy staff “assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form.”
According to the transcript, Trump said, “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the (US) Attorney General would be great.
“Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me.”
Zelensky in response: “We will take care of that and we will work on the investigation of the case.
“On top of that, I would kindly ask you if you have any additional information you can provide us, it would be very helpful.”
