Donald Trump Is Now Trying To Blame Ukraine Phone Call On Rick Perry, Report Claims

Donald Trump and Rick Perry at a press event.

Donald Trump is reportedly undergoing a major shift regarding his controversial phone call with Ukraine, privately moving into a claim that Energy Secretary Rick Perry forced him into making the call that has now sparked an impeachment inquiry.

During the July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump allegedly pressured the Ukrainian leader into digging up dirt on Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
