    They are investigating it and he didn't ask for campaign assistance he literally said "look into it" you don't get to change the words or create a quid pro quo because we have the transcript. No where was any aid discussed so quit lying it's not in there period.

    ROFL!!!!! Now it's illegal to turn an investigation over to the AG (which is required by law) of a foreign entity affecting our 2016 election? Ukraine admitted they did it for Hillary Already. It's been reported.

    It needs to be investigated thoroughly. OR... do Leftists suddenly not what it to be investigated, since you know, it exposes the DNC operative Chalupa and the Democrats as corrupt?

    And they said it had to be released by late september, which it was, unless they had a good reason, he discussed that you should go watch the actual PC it will enlighten you and you'll get real info instead of some fake news twisted facts.

    Do not accuse me of lying.

    Trump personally requested campaign assistance in the form of an investigation against his domestic political opponent while he simultaneously and unilaterally withheld hundreds of millions in military aid and a requested meeting. And then he obstructed justice by trying to hide, lie about, and obstruct the investigation.

    Whether he ever used the phrase "campaign assistance" or "quid pro quo" only matters to individuals who also subscribe to the theory that a guy pointing a gun at you and demanding your money is not guilty because he never said, "this is a robbery!"

    It's pure insanity. The Leftists have been caught.

    https://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/ukraine-sabotage-trump-backfire-233446

    ... and suddenly it cannot be investigated by the DOJ? Democrats cannot be investigated apparently. Even when they are caught red handed.

    Then impeach. And make the case in the Senate to the entire country that demanding anti-corruption measures and cooperation with the US DOJ investigations in exchange for taxpayers half a billion dollars is an impeachable offense. Lol

    But the libs are peeing in their pants terrified to do it, knowing full well they have no case lol

    You post an article from January of 2017, a full what? Like 16 months before Trump's phone call? As if that is all the justification Trump needed to hold up hundreds of millions in Congressionally approved military aid.

    There is ZERO request for a favor. There is ZERO quid pro quo in what you shared.

    You just proved my point. Thanks! :-D

    At what point did I say or imply that it is illegal to turn over to the AG an investigation of a foreign entity affecting the 2016 election?

    Do not worry, impeachment is coming. My prediction is that the trial starts shortly after Thanksgiving.

    Let me think what was different.
    Did Obama ask for dirt on McCain?
