Democrats Robert Menendez, Dick Durbin, and Patrick Leahy wrote to Ukraine in May 2018 demanding they investigate Donald Trump.
The Democrats’ letter is available online here. In it, U.S. Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) demanded that the Ukrainian government answer their questions about the Mueller probe, and issued an implied threat: “This reported refusal to cooperate with the Mueller probe also sends a worrying signal — to the Ukrainian people as well as the international community — about your government’s commitment more broadly to support justice and the rule of law.”
It got almost no attention, but in May , CNN reported that Sens. Menendez ,Durbin and Leahy wrote a letter to Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Yuriy Lutsenko

Democrats wrote to the Ukrainian government in May 2018 urging it to continue investigations into President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign — collusion later found not to exist.
The demand, which came from U.S. Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Patrick Leahy (D-VT), resurfaced Wednesday in an opinion piece written by conservative Marc Thiessen in the Washington Post.
Ironically, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared Tuesday that the mere possibility that President Trump had asked Ukraine to continue an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden — even without a quid pro quo — was enough to trigger an impeachment inquiry. (Biden boasted in 2018 that he had forced Ukraine to remove its prosecutor by threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid; he did not tell his audience at the Council on Foreign Relations that the prosecutor was looking into a firm on whose board his son, Hunter Biden, was serving.)

Trump says Democrat Senators Bob Menendez, Dick Durbin, Patrick Leahy, and Chris Murphy all threatened Ukraine over probes into him:

Oh no, don’t tell me the Democrats were colluding with a foreign government to influence our elections? Democrats always have one rule for them, another for everyone else.
Stones caught from a glass house will shatter irony like POPS! of inflated egos, karma nails to the wall, ill-will cults of personality disorder sans true charater.

This letter sounds very threatening and should be investigated. Perhaps all three should be impeached and removed from office.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
