While Donald Trump reiterated his request that whistleblowers triggering the impeachment investigation should be identified, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway declined to say that the president did not propose to the leader of Ukraine quid pro quo involving military aid and the investigation of its political rivals.
This is the basis of the impeachment procedure: whether nearly $ 400 million in military aid to Ukraine was unlawful or detained pending the request of Trump by Vladimir Zelensky to investigate Joe's alleged corruption Biden and Other Alleged Misbehaviors Related to Democrats in 2016
"The announcer understood him so well that the BUT must come forward," Trump tweeted on Sunday. "The fake news media knows who it is, but like the Democratic Party's arm, they don't want to reveal it, because there will be hell to pay. Reveal the Abuse and End the Fraud! »
In a heated exchange of state of the CNN Union, Conway refused to answer" yes "or" no "when asked if Trump had ever offered Zelensky a clean pro quo for military assistance.
– I don't know, – she said, – but I know they have help. Here's what is indescribably true: Ukraine has the assistance, and the Ukrainian president has said he has no idea that the aid is withheld and is not under such pressure. "
The White House continues to try to have a conversation on July 25 between Trump and Zelensky, who underlies the impeachment investigation as completely innocent, despite evidence from his own census and an oath given by two national security officials.  This testimony was given to members of the Capitol Hill House after Republican complaints about the closed-door production – in which Republican representatives took full part – Democrats held a full chap this week
The White House toured the wagons. Shattering CNN's cover, Conway was asked to "definitively" say that Ukraine's low quid pro quo was never offered.
" There was no quid-pro quo on this conversation, "she said, carefully narrating what the partial transcript of the July 25 call published by the White House looks like.
" President Trump never told the Ukrainian president: "Do this and you will get your help. "It's just not here. This is not in the transcript. "
This week, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Windman, a Homeland Security official, testified that he was concerned about the call, steps taken to keep it secret and what he said were inaccuracies and omissions in the published version.
Trump called Windman "never a trumpeter," the kind of Republican he recently called "human scum." Conway declined to ask whether the president would apply this description to Windman, who served and was wounded in Iraq and attended his testimony in his army uniform.
Asked if she was sure there had never been a pure pro-quo, Conway said, "I feel completely confident that Ukraine has the assistance and is using it right now."
Host Dana Bash replied: "Kellyanne, quid pro quo. Yes or no? "
" I don't know if the aid is withheld, "Conway said. "But I know we're trying to impeach the president in this country. But why? There is no resonance in this conversation so far in this country, especially in the 17 countries that could lead to high crime or abuse. "
While Conway was holding the White House line on CNN and Fox News on Sunday – and House Republican whip Steve Scalis did the same thing this week on ABC – her husband George Conway was engaged in Twitter: recommends articles and books on the impeachment process .
A high-profile Republican lawyer, he has emerged as one of Trump's most vehement critics, both online and on the Washington Post. His wife remains one of the president's most ardent defenders. The mysteries of their marriage became a hot gossip.
