U.S. President Donald Trump has once again criticized the Democrats who initiated the impeachment process, called the charges brought against him unfounded, as well as mentioned the "Ukrainian interference" in the U.S. elections.
"House Republicans investigating origins of the Ukraine Whistleblower complaint. ICIG Michael Atkinson facing serious questions. The Democrats know the ICIG is a major problem-didn't release his testimony," he wrote on Twitter on January 12, 2020.
"Looks so much like everything else we've seen, from the Russia Hoax, to... the Ukraine Hoax that became the Impeachment Scam. Must get the ICIG answers by Friday because this is the guy who lit the fuse. So if he wants to clear his name, prove that his office is indeed incompetent. The ICIG never wanted proof!" Trump tweeted.
The U.S. president once again assured no pressure had been put on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and there had been no blackmail on him over military assistance, which was approved by the Congress.
"Why should I have the stigma of Impeachment attached to my name when I did NOTHING wrong? Read the Transcripts! A totally partisan Hoax, never happened before. House Republicans voted 195-0, with three Dems voting with the Republicans. Very unfair to tens of millions of voters!"
"Many believe that by the Senate giving credence to a trial based on the no evidence, no crime, read the transcripts, 'no pressure' Impeachment Hoax, rather than an outright dismissal, it gives the partisan Democrat Witch Hunt credibility that it otherwise does not have. I agree!" Trump said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the House impeached Donald Trump over his campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate Biden and his son Hunter. The relevant decision should now be approved by the Senate.
