[Ed. – A TDS victim fails to clarify what in his opinion Trump did.]
Here’s a take no one will like: I’m confident he did it. I’m confident it’s impeachable. I’m just not so sure he should be impeached for it.
Let’s start at the top. It’s obvious to me that President Trump pressured the Ukrainian government to launch a probe of former vice president Joe Biden in order to tarnish the image of the Democrat best positioned to defeat him in 2020.
In the rough transcript of his conversation with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump says America has been very good to Ukraine, but he wants the relationship to be more “reciprocal.” Zelensky agrees and asks for more anti-tank missiles to deter ongoing Russian military aggression. Trump responds by asking for a two-part “favor.”
First, he asks Zelensky to look into the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s servers (a bat guano-crazy request, but whatever).
