The Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it opted not to investigate President Donald Trump over a controversial phone call he had in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

美国司法部周三宣布,不会就唐纳德·特朗普总统7月与乌克兰总统沃洛季米尔·泽伦斯基(Volodymyr Zelensky)通话一事展开调查。

The news came hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California announced the start of an official impeachment probe.

这一消息是在众议院议长南希·佩洛西宣布正式启动弹劾调查数小时后发布的。

"The actions of the Trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office,betrayal of our national security,and betrayal of the integrity of our elections,"Pelosi told reporters on Tuesday from the Capitol Building,according to ABC News.

据美国广播公司新闻网(ABC News)报道,佩洛西周二在国会大厦对记者说,"特朗普总统的行为揭露了总统背叛就职宣誓、背叛国家安全、背叛选举诚信的不光彩事实。"

Pelosi cited the Ukraine controversy in her brief statement about impeachment.

佩洛西在她关于弹劾的简短声明中引用了乌克兰的争议。

Prior to the Wednesday release of the transcript of the call,Trump critics claimed the president was withholding$400 million in aid from Ukraine as a bargaining chip he was using to get Ukraine to investigate past activities of Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden's son.

在周三公布通话记录之前,特朗普的批评人士声称,总统拒绝向乌克兰提供4亿美元的援助,作为让乌克兰调查民主党总统候选人、前副总统乔·拜登(Joe Biden)之子过去活动的谈判筹码。

The transcript released by the White House does not mention the aid,which was eventually released to Ukraine in September.

白宫公布的文字记录没有提到援助,援助最终于9月份发放到乌克兰。

Investigators looked into the call to see whether Trump had sought a sort of campaign contribution from Ukraine by asking Zelensky to probe the family of a political opponent,and decided there was no basis for a criminal investigation,The Washington Times reported.

据《华盛顿时报》报道,调查人员调查了这通电话,以查明特朗普是否曾要求泽伦斯基调查一名政治对手的家人,从而从乌克兰获得了某种竞选捐款,结果认为没有进行刑事调查的依据。

The Department of Justice's Criminal Division"reviewed the official record of the call and determined,based on the facts and applicable law,that there was no campaign finance violation and that no further action was warranted,"DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec told HuffPost for an article published Wednesday.

美国司法部发言人 Kerri Kupec 在星期三发表的一篇文章中告诉赫芬顿邮报,司法部刑事司"审查了这次电话会议的官方记录,并根据事实和适用的法律,确定没有任何竞选资金违规行为,没有必要采取进一步的行动。"

She said all"relevant components of the Department agreed with this legal conclusion,and the Department has concluded the matter."

她说,"司法部的所有相关部门都同意这一法律结论,司法部已经就此事作出了结论。"

A legal opinion from Steven Engel,assistant attorney general at the Office of Legal Counsel,further explained the decision.

法律顾问办公室助理总检察长 Steven Engel 的法律意见进一步解释了这一决定。

Engel cited the whistleblower complaint to the Intelligence Community Inspector General from an intelligence official who took issue with Trump's phone call.

引用了一名情报官员向情报社区监察长提出的告密者投诉,该情报官员对特朗普的电话表示不满。

Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire has thus far refused to reveal the contents of the complaint to lawmakers,though the White House is reportedly preparing to release a redacted version of the complaint anyway.

国家情报局代理局长约瑟夫·马奎尔迄今为止拒绝向立法者透露投诉的内容,尽管据报道白宫准备发布投诉的编辑版本。

"According to the ICIG,statements made by the President during the call could be viewed as soliciting a foreign campaign contribution in violation of the campaign-finance laws,"Engel wrote in his memorandum,which was written earlier this month but only released to the public this week.

" ICIG 称,总统在电话会议期间发表的声明可以被视为违反竞选财务法,寻求外国竞选捐款,"恩格尔在备忘录中写道。备忘录于本月早些时候撰写,但直到本周才向公众发布。

"In the ICIG's view,the complaint addresses an'urgent concern'for purposes of triggering statutory procedures that require expedited reporting of agency misconduct to the congressional intelligence committees.Under the applicable statute,if the ICIG transmits such a complaint to the DNI,the DNI has seven days to forward it to the intelligence committees."

"国际委员会认为,为了启动法定程序,要求加速向国会情报委员会报告机构的不当行为,申诉涉及一个'紧急关切'问题。根据适用的法规,如果国际调查委员会向国家情报局转交此类申诉,国家情报局有7天的时间将其转交情报委员会

So does the Trump administration have a legal obligation to share the contents of the complaint with lawmakers?The DOJ says no.

那么,特朗普政府是否有与立法者分享投诉内容的法律义务呢?司法部说没有。

"The complaint does not arise in connection with the operation of any U.S.government intelligence activity,and the alleged misconduct does not involve any member of the intelligence community,"the memo reads.

备忘录写道:"这起投诉与美国政府的任何情报活动都没有关系,所谓的不当行为也不涉及情报界的任何成员。"

"Rather,the complaint arises out of a confidential diplomatic communication between the President and a foreign leader that the intelligence community complainant received secondhand.The question is whether such a complaint falls within the statutory definition of'urgent concern'that the law requires the DNI to forward to the intelligence committees."

"相反,投诉源于总统与外国领导人之间的秘密外交交流,而情报界的投诉人是二手收到的。问题是,这种投诉是否属于法律要求国家情报局局长向情报委员会转交的"紧急关切"的法定定义范围

"We conclude that it does not.The alleged misconduct is not an'urgent concern'within the meaning of the statute because it does not concern'the funding,administration,or operation of an intelligence activity'under the authority of the DNI."

"我们的结论是,它不会。指称的不当行为不是《规约》意义内的'紧急关切',因为它不涉及国家情报局局长授权的'资助、管理或操作情报活动'

"That phrase includes matters relating to intelligence activities subject to the DNI's supervision,but it does not include allegations of wrongdoing arising outside of any intelligence activity or outside the intelligence community itself,"the memo adds.

备忘录补充称:"这一短语包括与受国家情报总局监督的情报活动有关的事项,但不包括在任何情报活动之外或情报界本身之外发生的不当行为指控。"

According to Kupec,Trump never asked Attorney General William Barr to discuss with Ukrainian officials anything relating to the Biden family.

据库佩克称,特朗普从未要求司法部长威廉·巴尔(William Barr)与乌克兰官员讨论任何与拜登家族有关的事情。

"The president has not spoken with the attorney general about having Ukraine investigate anything related to former Vice President Biden or his son,"she said."The president has not asked the attorney general to contact the Ukraine—on this or any other matter."

"总统还没有和司法部长谈过让乌克兰调查任何与前副总统拜登或他儿子有关的事情,"她说。"总统没有要求司法部长就此事或任何其他事项与乌克兰联系。"
