Ukrainian prosecutor, who headed the investigations concerning the firm, where Hunter Biden served as a member of a Supervisory Board, might be dismissed, as Reuters reported.

Such a decision is based on the attempt to avoid involvement in the partisan fight in Washington.

The impeachment process against Trump was launched due to the accusations of the U.S. President of putting pressure on Ukrainian authorities against Bidens as Joe Biden is the main Trump’s rival in the forthcoming 2020 election.

Officially, Kostiantyn Kulyk was fired as he did not come to the exam obligatory for all employees of the Prosecutor General’s Office in order to clean-up of the prosecution service.

Currently, over 400 prosecutors are fired. However, some of the prosecutors told that many employees, who did not come to the exam, protested against such reform as they treated it as the way to cement political control of Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky over the service.

It is also specified that Kulyk did not provide the official justification for missing the exam. The sources revealed that he will be dismissed until December 31, 2019.

The sources also mentioned the presence of dossier on business activities of Hunter Biden in Ukraine; however, its existence is not verified.

Earlier, Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani admitted that he had a meeting with Ukrainian prosecutor Kostiantyn Kulyk and discussed the accusations against Joe and Hunter Biden.

“(Kulyk) was another prosecutor somewhat lower level who told me the same thing: that there were collusion and Biden had (the) prosecutor fired to kill case on (his) son and Burisma,” Giuliani said.

On September 24, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry in response to the dispute over Mr. Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Meanwhile, US Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that they would not cooperate with the impeachment investigation initiated by the US House of Representatives.

The Pentagon also claimed that it would not comply with a lawmakers' request to provide documents related to Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Joe and Hunter Biden.

As we reported earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump, claimed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could be guilty of treason.

Besides, Trump's Homeland Security ex-Advisor John Bolton has not agreed to appear in Congress voluntarily in order to testify as part of an investigation into President Donald Trump's impeachment.
