Does Trump's transcript/memo basically demonstrate a direct violation of federal law?

5 CFR § 2635.702 - Use of public office for private gain. An employee shall not use or permit the use of his Government position or title or any authority associated with his public office in a manner that is intended to coerce or induce another person, including a subordinate, to provide any benefit, financial or otherwise, to himself...

In the Ukraine memo/transcript first Trump asks for some (personal) favors, Trump then says “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...”

Seems to be a clear violation of the law. No quid pro quo required.

1. George Stephanopoulos and Gym Jordan discussed this on George's show today.

Gym said Schiff only released select texts from Volker. I waited for George to say but Trump released select parts of his phone call with Ukraine so what's the difference? Didn't happen. Why don't they call these people out on their lies?
