Oh, this is ugly.

President Donald Trump repeatedly urged Ukraine’s president during a telephone call in July to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his involvement with a Ukraine natural gas company, a new report says.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump encouraged Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky “about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, on a probe, according to people familiar with the matter.”
Biden is the current front-runner in the race to win the Democratic presidential nomination and face the Republican nominee, expected to be Trump, in the 2020 election.
The White House and the Biden campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNBC about the Journal report.
The Ukraine government already investigated the conspiracy theory against Hunter Biden and did not find any factual evidence to support it, so the only way for their president to satisfy Trump would be to make up his usual lies. (Link)
So to be clear the evidence shows that Donald Trump held up financial aide for Ukraine, that was supposed to help protect them from the Russians until they agreed to help fabricate evidence against Joe Biden’s last remaining son.
If this evidence is presented to the Congress, I do not see how they can possibly refuse to move forward with impeachment. Meanwhile, Republicans do not give a goddam if Trump is inviting a foreign power to interfere in our elections. The world would be a better place if every single Republican would slit their wrists and bleed to death.
