‘Might WANT TO HEAR FROM BOLTON’
Congressional agents have been investigating whether Trump manhandled his capacity by constraining Ukraine to dispatch examinations of previous Democratic Vice President Joe Biden, who is hurrying to unseat him in the 2020 presidential political decision, and an undermined paranoid notion that Ukraine, not Russia, meddled in the 2016 US presidential political decision.
