Diplomat: Trumps thoughts on the Greenland stole the focus from the Ukraine

Donald Trumps staff in The White House laid the Ukraine crisis on the keel, while they were busy with to keep track of the case, where the US president had said that he would like to buy Greenland from Denmark.

It has the american topdiplomat Bill Taylor, who is the acting ambassador in Ukraine, told a hearing in Congress.

the Story is relayed by the british The Guardian and the american CNN, according to documents from Taylor's testimony 22. October has been published on Wednesday.

A part of Ukraine-the case is about to Trump a transition detained militærbistand on the many millions of dollars to the Ukraine.

Taylor explains that the man tried to get restored militærbistanden to procure a meeting with the top officials under Trump, describes CNN.

But Taylor discovered that the focus in the Trump administration was in a different place.

second, there was the logistical challenge, and partly that Greenland case.

So were the officials on the "different journeys at different times", explains Taylor, according to the printout.

- also, I believe that it was at the same time as the issue of Greenland - about to buy Greenland - that absorbed much of the energy in The National security council, said Taylor, according to CNN.

The short-lived Danish-american crisis began when Trump, in august announced that he was considering to buy Greenland.

Shortly after calling prime minister Mette Frederiksen talk of a sale of Greenland for an "absurd discussion".

It got Donald Trump to cancel a planned visit to Denmark. Subsequently, the two heads of state, however, talking on the phone and bedyret, that the relationship between the two countries is good.

Of Bill Taylor's explanation, according to The Guardian, that in his eyes lay a something for nothing-the mindset behind the detention of militærbistand to Ukraine.

Topdiplomaten explains, that at some point it was clear to him, to Trump with militærbistanden and through his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani tried to get Ukraine to start an investigation of his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

The closed consultations in the House of Representatives has been a part of the investigation in the so-called rigsretsproces.

Next week initiates the permanent select committee on intelligence of the House of Representatives during the public consultations prior to a possible impeachment.

the Term "rigsret" must be understood differently than in Denmark.

In English is used "impeachment". In the UNITED states is the politicians who decide whether a president should be allocated - not judges and attorneys who judge.
