The Democrats are investigating whether Trump should be removed from office because of his behavior in dealing with Ukraine. That includes a phone call in July in which he appears to have asked the President of Ukraine to investigate former US Vice President Joe Biden, currently a democratic presidential candidate, and his son Hunter's ties with a Ukrainian gas company in exchange for US military assistance .
