U.S. President Donald Trump and his aides plan to inform House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that they will not cooperate with the investigation as part of the impeachment process until congressmen vote to authorize the investigation. This was reported by officials on September 4, Fox news informs.

The document will indicate that President Donald Trump does not violate the law, ignoring the requirements of lawmakers, since the investigation as part of the impeachment procedure was not formally authorized by voting in the House of Representatives.

Trump himself evasively answered the question of whether the White House would comply with the Congress requirement to provide the necessary documents that relate to relations with Ukraine.

“Lawyers will decide this,” he stressed.

We recall that the scandal surrounding Trump's telephone conversation with Zelensky arose because the US president turned to the leader of another country in order to find dirt on his political opponent Joe Biden and his son Hunter. US Democratic congressmen have launched an investigation with the intention of impeaching the head of the White House.

American journalists wrote that Trump, trying to initiate an investigation against Biden’s son, delayed the provision of military assistance to Ukraine. Subsequently, Trump said that the United States has already allocated the promised assistance to Ukraine.
