Trump told the Ukrainian president, "If you can look into it ... it sounds horrible to me", referring to unsubstantiated allegations that Biden sought to interfere with a Ukrainian prosecutor's investigation of his son Hunter, who had been hired by a gas company in that country. 

"There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that 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 the summary provided by the Department of Justice (DOJ).
 

"Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it ... it sounds horrible to me," Trump said, according to the memo.

There has been no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Biden or his son.
