Only the Democrats could declare a crime has been committed when the alleged victim says it never happened.
But for the third or fourth time Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has denied that any pressure was put on him to open any investigations in exchange for the $400 million in aid.
Ukraine did not open any new investigations, they got their aid money and the president denies any quid pro quo, but the Democrats are still trying to use the phone call to impeach President Trump that they know they cannot beat in an election.
Breaking News: The President of Ukraine has just again announced that President Trump has done nothing wrong with respect to Ukraine and our interactions or calls. If the Radical Left Democrats were sane, which they are not, it would be case over!Loading...

If impeachment reaches the Senate, they should call Zelensky to testify at the hearing.
And while they are at it, they should call Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor Joe Biden got fired in a quid pro quo deal to keep Hunter from being prosecuted.
I think it would play well on television and maybe the voters will realize how flimsy the Democrat’s case against President Trump truly is.
The Intelligencer reported:
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has denied an explicit quid pro quo attaching investigations into President Trump’s political rivals to the release of U.S. military aid.
But, in a new interview with Time and several European publications, Zelensky did say that delaying nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine was an unfair thing for a “strategic partner” to do.
“Look, I never talked to the President from the position of a quid pro quo,” Zelensky said. “But you have to understand. We’re at war. If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.”
The denial of a quid pro quo echoes similar statements Zelensky has made on the subject.
During a joint press conference with Trump in New York last September, Zelensky was asked if he “felt any pressure from President Trump to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden?”
