The whistleblower complaint against Donald Trump allegedly involved a phone call with Ukraine where the president sought campaign dirt against former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for military help.
“President Trump in a July phone call repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s son, according to people familiar with the matter, urging Volodymyr Zelensky about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani on a probe that could hamper Mr. Trump’s potential 2020 opponent,” The Wallstreet Journal reported.
Since then, Trump has attempted to diminish the whistleblower scandal by pointing fingers at Biden.
On Friday, Biden responded.
“If these reports are true, then there is truly no bottom to President Trump’s willingness to abuse his power and abase our country,” Biden said in a statement posted to Twitter.
“At minimum, Donald Trump should immediately release the transcript of the call in question, so that the American people can judge for themselves, and direct the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to stop stonewalling and release the whistleblower notification to the Congress,” he added.
