WASHINGTON, DC (MetroSource-WSAU) -- Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson says the ambassador to the European Union told him in August that U.S. aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations. 

Johnson made the comment during an interview with the Wall Street Journal. He said the President has denied the claim.

He also told reporters in Sheboygan this week that Trump stopped him from telling Ukraine's president that the U.S. would provide military aid to the country. 

Trump said Thursday that he urged Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter because of his concerns over corruption.  There is no evidence of corruption by Biden.

Tom King

Tom grew up in Wausau listening to sports on WSAU and music on our sister stations WRIG and WIFC and decided early on that that was where he wanted to be. After graduating from Wausau East in the mid 70's Tom headed to UWSP. He worked at the college radio station WWSP and weekends on WIFC while earning a degree in Communication.

After college he worked a year at WKAU radio in the Fox Valley before returning to Wausau and moving into radio sales. He missed the on-air work and returned to the air when WOFM went on the air and when it was purchased by Midwest Communications was asked to take on the sports position on WSAU. He has spent the last 13 years as part of the WSAU morning team while also broadcasting Wausau East sports and contributing to the morning show on WIFC.

If you listen to the show you know that Tom is the coach of the Wausau American Legion Baseball team. He's married (Sandy) with two sons (Wade & Cory) and spends his spare time reading, listening to music, watching movies and tv shows and following most of the major sports.
