The White House tried to keep the contents of the conversation between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelinsky secret. This is reported by CNN with reference to the statement of a high-ranking official of the administration of the American president.
According to the official, the transcript of the conversation was classified as top secret information. This decision was made at the direction of lawyers of the National Security Council (NSC) of the United States.
“The lawyers of the National Security Service have indicated that the secret document should be handled properly,” the source said.26 September, the text of the intelligence officer’s complaint about Trump’s conversation with Zelinsky was published. The author of the document expressed concern that the Us President is using his powers to blackmail another state to interfere in the 2020 elections. The complaint also said the administration tried to hide the true content of the conversation.
A day earlier, the White House released a transcript of a conversation between Trump and Green, held in late July. Details of the conversation of the presidents, which were not previously publicly available, became the reason for the announcement by American parliamentarians about the beginning of the procedure of impeachment of the American leader.
The U.S. Congress intends to send the president to resign if it is possible to prove the fact of pressure on his part on the green. Intelligence suggests that Trump wanted to discredit his rival in the upcoming election, Joe Biden – and demand that his Ukrainian counterpart conduct an investigation into Biden’s son’s activities in Ukraine.
