Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Democrats Start Sounding Alarms on New Trump Ukraine Report”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The new reporting that President Donald Trump repeatedly pressed the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s son is setting off alarm bells for Democrats in Congress.

Most notably thus far is Senator Chris Murphy saying that if the reporting is accurate, Congress needs to act because “our silence could doom the republic”:

If the President, in his official capacity, asked a foreign government to dig up dirt on a political opponent, Congress cannot let that stand. Our silence could doom the republic.

To ask a foreign leader to interfere in a presidential election – right after a year long investigation into potential foreign interference in a presidential election – would be pretty extraordinary. Even for these times.

On phone w/ @ChrisMurphyCT as WSJ story broke. His immediate reaction when I read him the lede: “If it’s true that the president requested that the president of Ukraine interfere in an American election, we are in really dangerous, brand new territory.”https://t.co/Pt2kIxD2N0
