Ukrainian Government gave permission to the Secretary of State Pompeo to release the transcript of Zelensky-Trump telephone call, Trump twitted calling the case “a total witch hunt scam by the democrats.

Earlier, The Wall Street Journal, citing their sources reported that in a telephone call with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky back in July Trump was putting pressure over Ukraine’s newly elected leader by taking action to hurt election campaign of Trump’s major competitor - Joe Biden.

The investigation touches upon Mr. Biden’s son - Hunter’s business activities in Ukraine.

In June and August President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani met high-ranking Ukrainian officials with regard to the investigation against Mr. Biden’s son. Giuliani believes that Joe Biden when serving as a Vice-President in Obama’s office tried to secure the gas company tied to Hunter Biden from the investigation.

Apart from that, the New York Times reported that Giuliani spoke over the telephone and met in Madrid with a high-ranking official from Zelensky office to encourage Ukraine to investigate potential conflict of Biden’s family interests.

Ukraine in its turn states that there are no violations made by neither Joe Biden, nor his son Hunter.
