Contents of the transcript of President Trump's call with Ukraine's president have been released according to CNBC.

President Trump only mentioned Biden's name once and in doing so asked Ukraine's president if 'he could' look into Biden and his son's potential corruption.

According to CNBC:

President Donald Trump asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to “look into” former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, during a phone call in July, NBC News’ Pete Williams reported Wednesday.

 “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, what Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that, so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great,” Trump said in the call, according to NBC. 

Trump added: “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it, It sounds horrible to me.”

Trump only mentioned Biden once in the July 25 call, which lasted about 30 minutes and produced a five-page transcript, NBC reported.

This phone call is central to the whistleblower's complaint about Trump's negotiations. The intel inspector general found that the whistleblower has 'bias' in favor of a rival candidate to Trump.
