Congressional funds were deliberately held up for personal gain, as PABOTUS* shook down Ukraine. Everything else is disinformation, diversion and distraction, all in service of obstruction and corrupt intent.
Virgil attempts to rob a bank, and he fails because the tellers have difficulty reading past the spelling errors in his hold-up note, which says to "abt natural" because he has a "gub" pointed at them. The bank tellers even debate on whether he actually misspelled gun or if they just don't notice that the B is actually a C or N, and ask other people what they think, including a police officer.
Bribery & Extortion are 2 sides of the same impeachable coin. Trump was:
(1) EXTORTING Ukraine: “No defense aid unless you smear Biden & clear Putin re 2016”
(2) soliciting a BRIBE from Ukraine: “If you help me win 2020, I’ll help you defend your country against Russia.”

Trump keeps saying whistleblower gave false account of July 25 call. Dead wrong. WB said 3 things:
Trump asked Ukraine to (1) investigate Bidens (check), (2) investigate DNC / Crowdstrike (yup), and (3) specified Rudy & Barr as contacts (bingo).
Whistleblower nailed it, 3-for-3
