"Now for the issue of the alleged quid pro quo. It seems that everyone on both sides of the argument takes for granted without a second of thought that if there was a quid pro quo, there was an offense, possibly one sufficiently offensive to warrant impeachment. This is utter ignorant nonsense.

Quid pro quos are endemic in US foreign policy and always have been. The US government offered Ecuador president Lenin Moreno a $4.2 billion IMF loan in exchange for revoking Julian Assange’s asylum. Moreno took the deal. https://www.globalresearch.ca/assange...

Washington offered the Venezuelan military money to overthrow President Maduro. The military refused the offer.

Dozens of examples come readily to mind. Research would produce enough to fill a book.

What do you think the sanctions are that the US president places on countries? They are punishments that Washington imposes for not accepting Washington’s deal.

As for a quid pro quo deal between the US executive branch and president of Ukraine, we have VP Joe Biden’s boast that he got the Ukrainian prosecutor fired who was investigating corruption in the firm that had purchased US protection by putting Biden’s son, Hunter, on Burisma’s board. Joe Biden brags in front of the Council on Foreign Relations that he gave the Ukrainian president 6 hours to fire the prosecutor or forfeit $1 billion in US aid. "

    Correct, we want out president to insure that our publically unapproved tax dollars are not stolen and used by nefarious groups...but what truly IS Offensive is a Quid Pro Quo to save the ass of some dumb VP's even dumber kid!, not to mention stopping an investigation into the deep state with taxpayer blackmail money!

    It doesn't matter what the law is. The Dems have not been operating according to the law for a long time, starting with Obama.

    It also does not matter to them if American Democracy is destroyed. That is the last one of their concerns,

    Haven't you noticed that they wail about democracy only when they don't get what they want or their interest is coming up short?

    In fact I am convinced that their goal is to destroy it, converting the country into a wasteland of communist dictatorship. All the while parroting that democracy lives.
