Trump continues to service Russia and support the “dirt on Biden” quest, whining that it doesn’t feel like he’s been impeached.
Because shaking down the Ukrainian president isn’t violating bribery and extortion statutes even if Congressional aid was worth $391 million in announcing investigations.
If only Zelensky had been found having sexy times like a golden shower in his office, perhaps that would have motivated him to make that announcement.
Ultimately it’s still about disclosures and whistleblowers.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned on Wednesday that if Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal lawyer, is going to publicly suggest a “cover-up” involving the Bidens and Ukraine “then I hope you know what you're talking about.”
Graham’s comments come after Giuliani took a trip to Ukraine this month and met with a host of former and current officials as part of an effort to unearth more dirt on Trump's political rivals, including 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Trump’s efforts to get Kyiv to announce investigations into the Biden family and unfounded accusations that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections are at the center of Democrats’ impeachment efforts against him.
“I don't know what Rudy's got, but I'm going to send him a letter. If you're going to go on national television and tell the country that you've found evidence of a cover-up, then I hope you know what you're talking about,” Graham told reporters.
“I like Rudy a lot, but we're going to have to watch what we say,” he added.
Graham has invited Giuliani to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee over his concerns about corruption in Ukraine. He reiterated on Wednesday that Trump’s lawyer has an “open invitation” before the panel he chairs.
