WASHINGTON — Former vice president Joe Biden has said that in holding up vital military assistance to Ukraine, President Trump “used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation, a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia ... to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor.”

That’s rich. The aid in question is lethal military assistance that the Obama-Biden administration refused to give Ukraine.
