Rep. Mark Meadows Denies Trump Asked Ukraine About Biden: ‘He Didn’t Do That’

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) denied on Sunday morning that President Donald Trump ever asked the Ukrainian president to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, contradicting President Donald Trump’s own words.

During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, host Dana Bash immediately noted that the central charge of the impeachment inquiry against Trump is that “the president asked a leader of a foreign country to investigate his political rival.”

“So, one simple question to start, is that appropriate?” Bashed wondered aloud.

“Well, one, he didn’t do that,” the North Carolina lawmaker replied. “I don’t agree with your premise. He talked about investigations. If you look at the—the transcript, I think he said, will you do us a favor, based on the United States going through a lot, talking about 2016 elections.”
