Arms for Dirt: Trump violated constitutional duty by holding up aid for a 'favor'

One person’s kayfabe is another’s article of impeachment. Despite the possibility of future entreaties for election interference, the Ukraine deal is about a simple shake down with taxpayer money for $250+ million worth of interference.

Even Chuck Todd says we’re in the national nightmare with Trump’s admission that he committed the crime in another “chopper talk”, with now a third instance of lobbying a foreign power to interfere with an election.

Today featured so much disinformation trying to discredit the whistleblower while doubling-down on seeking election interference.

Normalizing illegality is not legally normative.

Federal law was still violated regardless of disinformation produced by Giuliani, or the plausible deniability now being manufactured by Pence. What will they do with the next whistleblower, this time in the IRS.

The memorandum of Trump’s call with Zelensky appears remarkably different in speed and content from the full transcripts of calls between President Trump and foreign leaders The Washington Post obtained in 2017.

President Zelenskyy: Yes you are absolutely right. Not only 100%, but actually 1000% and I can tell you the following; I did talk to Angela Merkel and I did meet with her I also met and talked with Macron and I told them that they are not doing quite as much as they need to be doing on the issues with the sanctions. They are not enforcing the sanctions. They are not working as much as they should work for Ukraine. It turns out that even though logically, the European Union should be our biggest partner but technically the United States is a much bigger partner than the European Union and I’m very grateful to you for that because the United States is doing quite a lot for Ukraine. Much more than the European Union especially when we are talking about sanctions against the Russian Federation. I would also like to thank you for your great support in the area of defense. We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost. ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.
The President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.
