US President Donald Trump is ready to publish another transcript of telephone conversations with Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky. He said this on Friday, November 8, in an interview with reporters before flying to Georgia.

Trump spoke of a telephone conversation with Zelensky, during which he congratulated him on his victory in the presidential election.

“I will publish it if they (the Democrats who started the impeachment procedure) want to. I don’t see a problem with this, but I don’t like to do it because it’s such a bad precedent,” he said.

In September, Democrats in the House of Representatives announced the start of the Trump impeachment procedure because of pressure that he allegedly exerted on the Ukrainian leadership to launch an investigation into former US Vice President Joe Biden.

On September 25, a transcript of the July conversation between Trump and Zelensky was published.
