House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Thursday during committee debate that President Trump’s pressure on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was the equivalent of putting ‘a gun to his head.’
“We’ve repeatedly heard that the Democrats are accusing President Zelensky and Mr. Yermak of lying because President Zelensky said he wasn’t pressured. Well, of course, he said he wasn’t pressured. The United States is a powerful nation on which his nation is dependent,” Nadler said.
He continued: “He has a gun to his head. The gun is the fact that the President of the United States, upon whom he depends for military aid for help in many different ways, has shown himself willing to withhold that aid and to do other things based on what he says… based on what he’s willing to play along with the President for his personal political goals.”
Incidentally, President Zelensky has consistently denied there was any pressure on President Trump’s part.
