Senate Dems Plead with Key GOP Senator to Probe Trump-Ukraine

As the investigation into President Trump’s push to get Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden intensifies on both sides of the Capitol, Senate Democrats are putting pressure on Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Jim Risch (R-ID) to start doing something to get answers about a situation that is quickly becoming a U.S. foreign affairs crisis.

In a letter sent to Risch on Wednesday, all the Democrats on the committee, led by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), said the panel has a duty to “examine the serious questions raised by these events.”

“As the Committee charged with jurisdiction over U.S. foreign policy, it is incumbent on us to understand fully all the facts, including the circumstances surrounding the delay in U.S. security assistance to Ukraine, the early departure of the U.S. ambassador to Kyiv, the Department of State’s role in these matters, as well as the implications these events may have on U.S-Ukraine relations, and U.S foreign policy more broadly.”

The senators called on Risch to “promptly convene hearings”—mentioning specifically testimony from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo—and use all of the committee’s powers to “fully examine these matters.”

I'm sure he'll get right on it.

1. Why should anyone have to beg Risch to do his actual job?

And they like to call themselves public servants.

5. Sometimes you have to follow formalities

You don’t ask because you think it will help. You ask because you’d be wrong if you didn’t.
