WSJ: Trump asked Ukraine's president *eight times* to investigate Biden's son

Wow. This story is like a Minnesota 12-layer salad. Stomach-churning, yes. But oddly appealing. And so much unadulterated awfulness to gawk at.

The Wall Street Journal is piling on now, reporting that Trump repeatedly pressured Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky in July to investigate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. And by “repeatedly,” I mean eight fucking times.

WSJ:

President Trump in a July phone call repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden ’s son, urging Volodymyr Zelensky about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, on a probe, according to people familiar with the matter.

“He told him that he should work with [Mr. Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know” whether allegations were true or not, one of the people said. Mr. Trump didn’t mention a provision of foreign aid to Ukraine on the call, said this person, who didn’t believe Mr. Trump offered the Ukrainian president any quid-pro-quo for his cooperation on an investigation.

Mr. Giuliani in June and August met with top Ukrainian officials about the prospect of an investigation, he said in an interview. The Trump lawyer has suggested Mr. Biden as vice president worked to shield from investigation a Ukrainian gas company with ties to his son, Hunter Biden. A Ukrainian official earlier this year said he had no evidence of wrongdoing by Mr. Biden or his son.

Gee, obsessed much?

And while The Journal’s source didn’t believe Trump explicitly discussed a quid pro quo on this call, it doesn’t take much to make that leap, given the $250 million in foreign aid Trump had reportedly been withholding from Ukraine. 

This is as crooked as it gets, people. Can’t wait for his Checkers speech.
