Don Jr. Blast Dem Senators Who Sent a Letter to the Ukraine Requesting They Investigate Trump

by Paul Goldberg

Three Democrat Senators, Patrick Leahy, Dick Durbin, and Bob Menendez are embroiled in a fresh controversy as they sent a letter to a Ukranian general prosecutor in May of last year asking them to investigate Trump.

Are the Democrats acting on a double standard and why are they not trying to impeach their own based on their similar action to President Trump?

Read their letter:

IJR reports, the Democratic senators who sent a letter to the Ukranian prosecutor general asking them to investigate President Donald Trump are facing some questions.

Last May, three Democratic senators — Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Dick Durbin(D-Ill.), and Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) — sent a letter to Ukranian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko expressing their “great concern about reports” that his office had taken steps to inhibit former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election interference.

The group of senators wrote that Ukraine “has made significant progress” in their process of building up their “accountable democratic institutions” in spite of the geopolitical pressure from Russia.

“We have supported that capacity-building process and are disappointed that some in Kyiv appear to have cast aside these principles in order to avoid the ire of President Trump,” continued the senators. “If these reports are true, we strongly encourage you to reverse course and halt any efforts to impede cooperation with this important investigation.”

The senators concluded the letter by asking Lutsenko to answer three questions: Did his office “take steps” to impede “cooperation” with Mueller’s investigation, if anyone in the president’s administration or “acting on its behalf” push Ukranian officials not to work with Mueller, and if Mueller’s probe was brought up in conversations between U.S. officials, including when Trump met former Ukranian President Petro Poroshenko in 2017.

The revelation of the letter did not sit well with conservatives, who blasted the three senators on Twitter.

Donald Trump, Jr. wrote that Congress should “impeach” all three of the senators.

“We should impeach them all. That’s how this works, right?” wrote the president’s son. “Given their rules its a no brainer since there’s an actual ask, unlike anything they’re coming up with. Their rules not ours!”
