Putin defends Trump



Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday defended Donald Trump over accusations the US leader pressured Kiev to dig up dirt on a rival, saying there was “nothing compromising” in transcripts of the call. “I see nothing compromising in the conversation between Trump and (Ukrainian leader Volodymyr) Zelensky,” Putin said of the phone call that has sparked an impeachment probe in the US. On September 27, the White House scrambled to “lock down” records of Trump’s phone call pressing for Ukraine’s interference in next year’s US election, an incendiary whistleblower complaint alleged, in the latest episode of an intensifying impeachment drama. The complaint had capped that stunning week of revelations that put Trump’s presidency in jeopardy, with his administration, the Justice Department, and State Department all engulfed in the mushrooming scandal. .
