He said that because he's under duress Stanislav.
His country is in danger of being subordinated by your hero Vladimir Putin. He's going to knuckle under to Trump's ILLEGAL EXTORTION because he has no other choice... so OF COURSE he is going to say "no such thing". He also loses face in his own country, and with Russia by admitting Trump EXTORTED him... political suicide. But you're not smart enough to understand that, are you Stanislav? (Rather, you're TOO PARTISAN to recognize that, but I prefer the TRUMPTARD MORON narrative, that you are...).
Why Dems are calling it bribery when it is EXTORTION, and IMPEACHABLE, pure and simple, is beyond my ken.
BTW: Perhaps you missed the memo Stanislav, Trump released the aid because it was deemed ILLEGAL, and it was a CYA move after he found out the whisteblower's report was going public.
This is EXTORTION and IMPEACHABLE, cut and dried case. The only thing saving his *** is your sycophantic dick-sucking Republican Senators that value power over the CONSTITUTION of the UNITED STATES. Benedict Arnold MF'ers, every single one of them.
You do know what COVER YOUR *** is, right Stanislav? Did you want me to translate all of the above so you can understand it, Stanislav?
