President Donald Trump has been threatened with impeachment as a result of his talk with the president of Ukraine.
In a phone conversation on July 25 with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, Trump suggested that his counterpart reveal information regarding Joe Biden’s family engaging in corrupt deals with the country. Former Vice President Joe Biden is currently the front-runner in the Democrat’s 2020 campaign.
Trump rejected accusations that he had pressured his Ukrainian colleague or linked financial and military aid to Ukraine based on Zelensky’s providing him with dirt on Biden… ironically, Biden is being accused of doing just that in his dealings with the country while he was serving in the Obama administration.
