More news out of Washington Wednesday as Democrats continued to push for an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

The White House released a written summary Wednesday morning of the July 25th call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The document includes Trump asking his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate corruption allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden and his family.

Trump says the summary of the call clears him — Democrats say it makes the case for impeachment even stronger.
