Lipinski Statement on President Trump's Phone Call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today:

"I am very concerned by President Trump’s acknowledgement that he raised corruption accusations against Joe Biden during a phone call this summer with Ukraine’s President. This only adds credence to the alleged whistleblower complaint. No president can withhold foreign assistance in order to force a country to investigate someone because they are a political opponent.  If President Trump conducted a quid pro quo such as this it would be an impeachable offense.  The whistleblower complaint deserves a full investigation. The Administration must not stand in the way.  It’s vital for our national security that all elected officials honor the rule of law and act in accordance with it."
