A transcript of a call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump asking the foreign leader to investigate Biden and his son. No evidence has emerged to show wrongdoing by Joe Biden in his actions with Ukraine while his son Hunter Biden sat on a Ukrainian company's board.
A whistleblower complaint also accuses the Trump administration of placing transcripts of the call on a highly classified server.
"I am offended by the Republicans trying to shift the attention in this, in what is Trump’s scandal. This is a Trump scandal and potential violation of office," Booker said on Sunday. "It should in no way effect the vice president in pursuit of the nomination."
