Trying not to be too insulting.
Gateway Pundit is a questionable source at best.
That prosecutor was corrupt and he was NOT fired for investigating Hunter Biden. The Burisma investigation was concluded more than a year before the prosecutor was fired. The money was withheld because you want to make sure it goes where it’s supposed to go, and not into the pockets of corrupt government officials.
Here is a short timeline of those events from Forbes.com.
Forbes is NOT a liberal organization.
Do you understand the difference between a quid pro quo where our government says that we will help your country if you help ours, and one where the President says we will help your country if you help me personally?
Cockroaches scurrying away from the bright light of truth.
And his trees grow gigantic leaves.
Mr. Bok, I believe you are trying to focus our attention on the whistleblower as a distraction. Most people with two brain cells to rub together are aware that there is more to this story that a phone call. The parade of witnesses making depositions detailing the same story about the President’s extortion plot to benefit his re-election campaign have made the whistleblower no longer relevant.
If Trump was asking Ukraine for something beneficial to America’s national interests, that would be totally fine. The problem is that Trump was leveraging Ukraine’s national security for his own personal political benefit. Besides, the military aid he was withholding was a bipartisan appropriation, and he had no right to have anything to do with that aid. Holding up that aid was and illegal act and an abuse of power.
Asking a foreign government to help with a domestic political campaign is a federal crime by itself. The hold up of the aid amounts to extortion. Extortion is basically demanding a bribe. While there are many things for which a President can be impeached, the Constitution lists two specifically, and bribery is one of them.
A biased opinion to say the least.
Not for nothing, but I’ve met quite a few dishonest, anti-social, and generally toxic women in my life.
