Don't you realize that Trump is a corrupt president ?   Even as a Republican you should not want to keep a president like this.      

This will hurt Biden and help Trump. Funny, it was only a few months ago that he was about to be impeached for colluding with Russia to game an election. It looks like they are desperate to impeach Tr

With Trumps record of turning the Democrats attacks into an expose of Democrat incompetence and villainy. You would think they would have learned their lesson. But when your candidates are a bunch of

You seem to be totally contempt with what Biden may have done, as long as you can get Trump.

 

So if Trump would not have acted and Biden is/was guilty but got away with it, you would not care?  

Show some evidence Biden did something wrong and I'll tell you if I have "contempt" for what he did.

 

Even if Biden is guilty of something, Trump chose to single out an alleged incidence of corruption for investigation that, if proven, would hurt an opponent in the 2020 election.  He ignored the massive amounts of serious corruption Ukraine is dealing with.  Do you care?

I'm refuting the entire post, that's why.  Not falling for it.

Refuting with no evidence, because you have none.  As I posted, Zelinsky didn't say there was no pressure, Trump did.  Your post stating otherwise was wrong.

How's this for a smoking gun? This is from Senator Ron Johnson, a very conservative Republican and a strong backer of Donald Trump:

"Johnson told reporters Trump said he was considering withholding the aid because of alleged corruption involving the 2016 U.S. election. Johnson stood by the president, saying he was sympathetic to his concerns and didn't see any bad motives on his part. "

More likely what he is saying is this...
 
1) It's undisputed that Trump basically tried to pressure a foreign country into investigating his political rival... and withheld aid inexplicably while doing that. That right there is all the information you need. He has since admitted to it publicly, and called for China to investigate the same person. That's enough right there to oust the guy. And anything else is a distraction trying to distract from that fact.
 
2) Go ahead and investigate Biden if you think a crime was committed. Ukraine doesn't believe so. There isn't any evidence that supports it other than a spun conspiracy theory. If he did commit wrongdoing though then by all means investigate him.  That should be independent of #1 though and not used as a distraction. 

There's no equivalency here between Biden and Trump. Trump has now openly cheated or attempted to cheat and been caught in both elections. The best case scenario is that he was unsuccessful in getting dirt from Russia on Hillary... He certainly tried. And now he's openly using the office of the presidency to try to tarnish his political rivals. You can try to distract from that but those are the facts. 


1. It is disputed

Everything is disputed. I imagine there are still flat earthers. But the game 45 was playing with Ukraine is obvious to anyone with an open mind and common sense. That would exclude hard core 45 base fans, you know, the excusing shooting random people on the street brigade.

Why would I care about internal corruption in Ukraine? Did they put it on front page of every news paper in the world ?

Well, if they take your money to bolster their defense but it ends up in the hands of a few persons without bolstering the defense you should care.
