“The United States Has Been Very Good to Ukraine”

Well, we have the readout of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “The United States has been very good to Ukraine,” Donald Trump tells him. Then there’s this:

Trump not only asked Zelensky to look into Hunter Biden, but also into the bizarre conspiracy theory that Ukrainians were behind the DNC server hack. Zelensky, who is pathetically eager to suck up to Trump, just agrees to everything Trump asks.

Next, of course, is to find out what Rudy Giuliani and William Barr said to Zelensky. Trump said they’d be calling to follow up.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
