There are more reactions today to a July call President Trump made in which he asked Ukraine's leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.

This weekend, the president admitted to discussing the vice president and his son, Hunter, with Ukranian president Volodymyr Zelensky.

"The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, largely corruption, all of the corruption taking place. Was largely the fact that we don't want our people, like Vice President Biden and his son, creating to the corruption already in the Ukraine," the president said.

The call raises a number of critical questions, including whether the president acted unlawfully.
