The president of Ukraine appeared with President Trump on Wednesday and backed up what Trump has said repeatedly.
The Democrats and the media are still trying to make hay out of this, but it won’t fly.
Even Zelensky is confirming there’s nothing here.
FOX News reports:
Ukraine president, in meeting with Trump, says ‘nobody pushed me’ to probe Biden
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during a meeting in New York with President Trump, told reporters Wednesday that he was not pressured to investigate the Biden family during their now-controversial phone call over the summer.
“Nobody pushed me,” Zelensky said.
The comments come after the White House released a transcript reflecting that call. It showed Trump sought a probe into Biden family dealings in the country, though it did not show Trump explicitly linking the request to U.S. aid, as some have suggested.
“We had a great phone call,” Zelensky added. “It was normal.”
Trump interjected afterward: “In other words, there was no pressure and you know there was no pressure.”
Trump’s meeting with Zelensky comes just hours after the White House released the transcript of their summertime call and less than a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she was opening an impeachment inquiry into Trump over the issue.
“She’s lost her way, she’s been taken over by the radical left,” Trump said of Pelosi.

Some of Trump’s allies are talking about this on Twitter:
The transcript really shows how dishonest news media is. Unlike Joe Biden, no military aid was withheld, no threats, and absolutely no pressure. Zelensky introduces me into the conversation, not POTUS Trump.

In case you don’t believe the transcript, which showed zero evidence of quid pro quo or @realDonaldTrump pressuring anyone…
Here’s Ukraine President Zelensky’s interpretation of the call:
“I think you read it—that nobody pushed me”

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky just blew a major hole in the Democrats’ bogus narrative.

Democrats really overreached on this.
They’re still trying to convince themselves that they’ve got him this time.
