Trump on Ukraine Call: We Have an Obligation to Investigate Corruption

‘If Ukraine would know something about the 2016 election, you have to give that information’


TRUMP: “That is right, many, many investigations. That is all they have done is investigations and yet one of the most successful investigations in the last two and half years. The first two and a half years of the administration. So when you look at what is going on, and then you see all of this horrible stuff, and then you hear about Ukraine. You have been hearing about it. I heard Clinton was involved. I heard they got somebody who wrote the fake dossier. Was it out it out of Ukraine? All of the things that happened. And I assume the Attorney general, I would like the Attorney general to find out what is going on. Because you know what, we are investigating corruption. And I actually heard Gregg Jarrett in numerous people say come I have an obligation to do. That is not a question, can I do it or don’t I do it? We have an obligation to investigate cooperate — corruption. In my opinion, that is what it was corruption and if Ukraine would know something about the 2016 election, you have to give that information. I hope they would give the information and everybody agrees with me 100%. But when I look at experts on your show and other experts, they are all sin you have an obligation to do that. So I think I have a friend a — read a conversation taken down and transcribed a perfect conversation.”
