"If this actually happened, @realDonaldTrump should be impeached and removed from office without delay," he wrote on Twitter on September 19.

At the same time, he referred to the British publication The Independent, which reports the Trump administration is putting pressure on the Ukrainian government to initiate a probe against Biden's son, blocking military assistance to Ukraine.
