Trump says McConnell assured him the Ukraine call was ‘perfect’

Trump says McConnell assured him the Ukraine call was ‘perfect’”

In the USA Today/Ipsos poll, 17 percent of Republicans support impeachment but 30 percent of Republicans say the president asking Ukraine to look into Biden's behavior would be an abuse of power. "It didn't", the White House said.

There has been no evidence of wrongdoing by Joe Biden or his son.

The Chinese Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump's appeal to China was particularly striking, since Washington and Beijing are locked in a bitter trade war that has damaged global economic growth. They are due to hold another round of talks in the United States next week.

"At the very least, it is clear from the readout that Trump discussed investigating Biden during the call", said Monmouth's Patrick Murray.

Trump supporters have accused Joe Biden of leading a USA effort to remove a Ukraine prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, in a bid to end investigations at Burisma, an energy company in which his son held a board seat.

Hunter Biden had business interests in Ukraine and China while his father served as vice-president.

"I looked at them and said: I'm leaving in six hours".

Lowering drug prices has been a top priority for Democrats this year.

Charges that Trump pressured Zelensky to investigate the Bidens helped prompt House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to announce a formal impeachment investigation last week. Many Republicans, however, have shown little appetite for ousting him.

The calls to investigate were a repeat of Trump's actions on a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July, the contents of which were released by the White House in a rough transcript of the call and in a whistleblower complaint later made public after being withheld by the White House. Democrats say the request amounted to an attempt to solicit foreign influence in the upcoming USA election.

On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal said Trump ordered the removal in May of the then-ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, after months of complaints from allies that she was undermining him overseas and obstructing efforts to persuade Kiev to investigate the Bidens. "I'm sorry, but I don't want to be involved to democratic open elections, elections of USA", Zelensky said.

Schiff was ripped Thursday over the closed-door testimony of former U.S. envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker, the New York Post reported.

The drafting of the statement was first reported by the New York Times. I have been in touch directly w Zelensky as well. "And he never said that to me".

The Ukraine investigation has angered Trump, whose volatile presidency survived a two-year federal investigation that found Russian Federation had intervened to help him win the White House in 2016. He clearly wasn't being forthright in that interview with us a couple weeks ago.

Vice President Mike Pence backed an investigation into Biden's dealings with Ukraine.

"No, sure, we had I think good phone call".

"Have you felt any pressure from President Trump to investigate Joe Biden?" a reporter asked.
