    Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to the European Union, testified on Wednesday that President Donald Trump cared most that Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky publicly announce an investigation into former vice president Joe Biden and the company that employed his son, not that Ukraine actually conduct the probe.

    “He had to announce the investigations,” Sondland said during the House impeachment inquiry, referring to Zelensky. “He didn’t actually have to do them, as I understood it.”

    All Trump wanted was the public announcement of an investigation so he could use it politically

    List for us all the nations in the world 100% free of corruption? Yea, I thought so. Now tell me why Obama didn't care about all those corrupt countries? We deal with and have relationships with ALL of them. Quit talking out of both sides of your ass on the one hand saying we're too involved in other countries then tell us in the next sentence that Trump didn't care about corruption in some small country half a world away.

    Worry about corruption in your own country first.

    Worry about the DNC.

    Of course. Rump has no need for an actual investigation, since he can and will just make it up, shoot it out of his Twit gun on Fifth Avenue, and his sheep will flock to believe it. He just wanted a yes-man to publicly suck up.

    You missed the point all together. The point isn’t that Trump should care about the corruption, it’s that he’s been using that as his excuse for holding the aid. The Dems are making the case that it wasn’t about the corruption it was about the politics. Get it now?

    And the Defense Department had certified months prior that corruption in Ukraine was not an issue that should hold up that aid.

    even if every thing the left said about trump was true, impeaching over a phone call is really petty.

    That make sense to you?

    It was a lot more than just a "phone call". That phone call EXPOSED the entire corrupt scheme

    If your wife catches you on the phone with your girl friend..is she out of line for divorcing you? After all...it's just a "phone call" right?
