NEW: Democrats pursuing an impeachment inquiry of Trump want to take a fresh look at whether the sale of anti-tank missiles to Kiev last year was in any way connected to Ukraine’s decision to halt investigations into Paul Manafort.

Scoop w/@dlippman…
@dlippman They're especially interested in light of Zelensky’s comment, in his July call with Trump, that Ukraine is almost ready to buy additional Javelins from the U.S. Trump responded by asking for “a favor”—that Zelensky investigate Ukraine’s involvement in 2016, with help from Barr.
@dlippman Democratic Senators sent a letter to Ukraine's then-top prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko in May 2018 asking directly whether “any individual from the Trump administration" or anyone acting on its behalf encouraged Ukraine not to cooperate with Mueller. They never received a response.
