Then why are Banks precluded from doing business with entities in the Ukraine? Hunter Biden admitted Nepotism got him that gig. Biden admitted he withheld $1bn of aid until the prosecutor investigating Burisma, the company where his son sat on the BOD, was fired. Maria Yavanovich was told to have talking pts about Bidens and Burisma when she was named Ambassador. Where there is smoke there is fire.So they’re connected simply because they’re in the same country?Ukraine is known as a corrupt country. That is beyond debate. Now this corrupt country is overtly anti Trump. Seems suspicious to me.I might have missed something but how do we go from “politicians voicing their opposition to Trump” to corruption?Of course. But if you're going to overtly support their rivals then Trump should have the ability to gauge what is happening. Ukraine is highly corrupt. Banks are not even allowed to wire money to clients in the Ukraine many a times because of this. Trump had every right to ask anything he wanted to. Instead of saying "Bidens" he should have said just Burisma. That is his bad but it is not an impeachable offense.I mean, if that’s the best you have, so be it. It’s an incredibly weak argument.In your opinion. I disagree. Am I allowed to do so? I think it is pathetic that Leftists attack those who disagree with them.
Let me ask you this. Are Ukrainian politicians allowed to disagree with Trump?
DERSHOWITZ: It's not any kind of a crime. It may be a political sin — that's a good reason for deciding who to vote for — but it's not a good reason for removing a duly-elected president. The Framers had a debate about this, and they rejected the concept of "maladministration" as a ground for impeachment. You need to show bribery, treason, or high crimes and misdemeanors. And even in the worst-case scenario by the phone call, it's not there.
Those don’t seem to be in the same category.
Good lord, that’s about as tenuous of a connection you could possibly make.
By the way, the whole country isn’t corrupt and a lot of the really corrupt ones are now hanging out with Giuliani.
