Report: US Diplomats Pushed Ukraine to Probe Trump Rivals

Thursday, 03 October 2019 09:50 PM

Two U.S. diplomats drafted a statement in August for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that would have committed his country to investigate President Donald Trump's political rivals, the New York Times reported on Thursday.

The statement was drafted by U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland and U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, the Times said, citing three people briefed on the draft statement.

CNN reported, however, that a source said Ukrainian officials and not U.S. diplomats wrote the statement because they wanted to prove they were serious about getting rid of corruption.
