Yes, Trump asked the new Ukrainian president to take a look at the firing of the prosecutor who had previously been investigating a natural gas firm that was paying then Vice President-Biden’s son Hunter $50,000 per month to sit on their board.
No, there is nothing like a quid pro quo or a threat from Trump to Zelenskiy.
In fact, due to Trump’s broken speech, “if you can look into it,” and “whatever you can do”: is the closest he gets to even making an ask.
Democrats are on TV, premature ejaculating all over the place, pretending they have been proven right anyway. The MSNBC reporter just paraphrased Trump on the call as saying, “this is a nice country you have here, it’d be a shame if something happened to it,” even though there is nothing like a threat or a promise anywhere in the call.
Another MSNBC “expert” just explained “you don’t need a quid pro quo to have a quid pro quo here.” Dem congressman says bringing up the question at all is impeachable.
Talk about derangement.
This whole thing might as well be a Roger Stone jerk-your-chain dirty trick on the liberals, as badly as they’re shooting themselves in the foot over all their half-assed claims against this president.
“I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down, which is really unfair.”
“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, what 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.”
“Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it, It sounds horrible to me.”
Again: You want to impeach Trump? He’s guilty of genocide in an unauthorized, illegal war. How about that, huh? Oh… no? Obama started that war, so more Russia, Ukraine and other hoaxes will have to suffice.
