Scandal in Washington

The White House released a transcript of the conversation between the American and Ukrainian leaders. It turned out that Trump did not seek from the Greens to prosecute Hunter Biden in exchange for financial and military assistance. The U.S. Department of Justice, which also serves as the Attorney General’s Office, found no violations of national law in the contents of the phone call, nor any grounds for further investigation.
