President Donald Trump said in an interview on Monday, Oct. 22, that he would like Attorney General William Barr to study whether there is a connection between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Ukraine, and the controversial file prepared by former British spy Christopher Steele against him.
In exclusive statements to talk show host Sean Hannity, the president explained that he had “heard” rumors that they might be linked. “You hear about Ukraine, and you’ve been hearing about it. I heard Clinton was involved,” the president said on Fox News’s “Hannity.”
“I heard they got somebody who wrote the fake dossier was out of Ukraine,” he said next.
“All of the things that happened …,” he continued. “I would like the attorney general to find out what’s going on. Because, you know what? We are investigating corruption,” he said.
Democrats recently launched a impeachment inquiry to remove President Trump, based on an anonymous whistleblower who said the president called Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and pressured him to investigate whether Joe Biden, in his time as Obama’s vice president, had used his power to block the prosecutor investigating the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, where his son was on the board.
However, both President Trump and Zelenskiy, have reiterated that there was no pressure during the telephone conversation they had, in which they mentioned alleged Ukrainian support for Democrats in the 2016 presidential elections.
At this point, it should be noted that U.S. law states that any contribution of value in an election by foreign entities is considered a crime.
Also, former British spy Christopher Steele, hired by Fusion GPS at the behest of Perkins Coie, a law firm working for Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, produced the controversial anti-Trump dossier that led to President Trump being indicted for alleged collusion.
After two years and millions of taxpayer dollars, the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller found nothing that could justify the multiple accusations made against President Trump.
