“Folks we have a president who’s violated his oath of office,” Biden said at a Las Vegas campaign rally. “A president who has put at risk our national security. A president who may, and that will be the decision of the Congress to make, may have committed a crime.”
The White House this week released a summary of Trump’s July 25 phone call where he asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Biden ahead of the November 2020 election – a call at the heart of a whistleblower’s complaint.
Trump had ordered $400 million in military aid and foreign assistance for Ukraine to be put on hold a week before the call, and lifted the freeze earlier this month.
Trump denies he pressured Zelenskiy to do anything improper and said he was not using the aid as leverage.
