“I would like you to do us a favor”: Trump Asked Ukraine President to Investigate Bidens, Speak to Giuliani and Barr






The party is over.

The White House has released the transcript of the phone call this past July between Donald Trump and Ukraine president Zelenssky. Trump clearly asks Zelenssky to investigate Joe Biden and his son. It’s stunning. Trump tells Zelenssky over and over that he will have Attorney General William Barr call him about it. He also says that Rudy Giuliani will call.

Trump’s words to Zelenssky will be repeated over and over again. “I would like you to do us a favor.” Here’s the full transcript.
