    How many USMB conservatives think the call was appropriate?

    ‘No way to spin this as a good idea’: Tucker Carlson says Trump wrong to ask Ukraine president to investigate Bidens

    Donald Trump should not have been on the phone with a foreign head of state encouraging another country to investigate his political opponent, Joe Biden," the pair said in the Wednesday article published by the Daily Caller. "Some Republicans are trying, but there’s no way to spin this as a good idea."

    Trumpers would have worked for the mob and thought they're doing gods work. Don't ever expect them to turn on their snake monster.

    Only 17 percent of Americans think the call was appropriate
    How can Republicans defend it?

    Also from the article.
    While chastising Trump for the call, however, Carlson and Patel stated that it's "hard to argue" that the president's mistake was "an impeachable offense." They point to the Justice Department not considering Trump to have broken any laws.

    Appropriate or legal?

    Was it appropriate?

    No and that is my opinion.

    Was it illegal?

    Let see what the Democrat House says and if the GOP Seante agree and if not then it was not illegal enough to impeach and convict and remove...

    Meh. I personally classify a private phone call between heads of state as a private phone call between heads of state. :dunno:

    personally I don’t feel there was anything inappropriate about the call, but if others feel differently that’s fine. What rational people can agree upon was there was no illegal action by Trump during the call. I think the spinning of what was actually said is a travesty
