WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Cory Booker said he wanted to hear from the White House officials who were in the room when President Donald Trump reportedly threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine unless the country announced investigations to benefit him politically.
Booker, D-N.J., will be one of the 100 U.S. senators who will decide whether Trump will be removed from the White House after becoming only the third president in American history to be impeached.
“Did the president or not — and there were witnesses in the room — did he violate his oath?” Booker said Sunday on NBC’s "Meet the Press.
“This is a very clear-cut and dry thing to me. And there are people who could be testifying in front of the American people and settle this once and for all, under oath, ‘What did you witness?’ And we should be doing that.”
