US: No more military aid for Ukraine

Donald Trump, the former U.S. President, has called on Republican members of Congress to focus their investigation on U.S. President Joe Biden.

The demand is to suspend military aid to Ukraine until the White House cooperates in the investigation of Biden and his family. Trump is facing charges over his handling of classified documents and hush money payments. A special prosecutor is investigating Trump’s role in storming the Capitol in Washington in January 2021 and his efforts to influence the outcome of the 2020 presidential election as the German news website reported.

“False reports in the media”

Moreover, the affair surrounding the Russia contacts of Donald Trump’s confidants continues to put pressure on the U.S. administration, as the German news website reported. Trump reacted angrily to corresponding media reports and rejected the accusations. In a Twitter post, he called the reporting by the “false news media” conspiracy theories and blind hatred. He stressed that any possible connection to Russia should be dismissed as “nonsense” and was merely an attempt to explain the election defeat of his Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.

Trump accused both the “New York Times” and the “Washington Post” of illegally obtaining information. He stressed that the real scandal was that confidential information was carelessly shared by intelligence agencies, which he called un-American. The Russian president’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, also firmly rejected the reports. He stressed to journalists in Moscow that anonymous information should not be believed because the newspaper report was not based on facts.
