Donald Trump calls the newly elected president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, to congratulate him and ask for investigations of corruption.

Rudy Giuliani was already making appearances on Fox News claiming that Joe Biden interfered in Ukraine to help his son and that Ukraine was involved with fabricating evidence of Russian interference in 2016.

When Ukraine elected its new leader, Volodymyr Zelensky, on April 21, Mr. Trump seized on the moment as an opportunity to press his case. Within hours of Mr. Zelensky’s victory, Mr. Trump placed a congratulatory call as he was en route from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida to Washington…

The White House released a summary — but not a full transcript — of the April call, noting that Mr. Trump pledged to work with the new administration “to implement reforms that strengthen democracy, increase prosperity and root out corruption.”

Mr. Giuliani planned to travel to Kiev in May to try to meet with Mr. Zelensky to urge him to pursue the corruption investigations of interest to Mr. Trump, telling The New York Times, which revealed his efforts and the planned trip, that he had the full support of Mr. Trump.
