“After saying they could not accept a quid pro quo, House Republicans say it no longer matters if President Trump tied $400 million in military aid earmarked for Ukraine to Kyiv agreeing to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden.

The evolving Republican position on impeachment comes as key witnesses testify publicly about allegations Trump abused his power in dealings with Ukraine, with some government officials lending credibility to accusations by House Democrats that the president demanded a quid pro quo of Kyiv. When the claims first surfaced in a whistleblower complaint, Republicans said that, if true, they might be forced to consider impeaching Trump.

That’s off.

Republicans now say proof that Trump conditioned military aid to Ukraine to an investigation of Biden, a top 2020 contender, his son Hunter, and the Democratic Party would not shake their opposition to impeachment. The money was released without such a deal, and, Republicans emphasize, federal law gives presidents broad discretion to withhold foreign aid.”

  1. Forest Trump, stupid is as stupid does. Trump supporters are as dumb as a sack hammers following a bigger and dumber hammer if they believe everything that comes out of Trump's mouth as the truth.

  2. We had a wheelchair bound president and no one knew for years because everyone covered for him. Did you see the size of the font on that page? We have a semi illiterate president who is also a felon, and everyone is covering for him.

  3. …What the HECK is this man talking about. …He's standing there, in the middle of an open space, appearing to be 'shouting ' random variations of the English language, and he appears to be reading it all from the piece of paper he's holding. …It reminds me of a sixth -grader practicing for a Shakespearean play. (Shouting) "…To be, or not to be; that is the question." Jeeze, Louise.

  4. I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR NO PRESIDENT WHO DONT HAVE A DOG. TRUMP IS TO INHUMAN TO HAVE A DOG.TRUMP IS SO INHUMAN I BET HIS DOG IF HE HAD ONE WOULD TAKE A BIG BITE OUT OF HIM. EVEN A DOG NO WHEN YOU ARE EVIL AND NO GOOD……

  5. His anxiety is SO palpable, i can feel it all the way in canada. That dipshit in chief really makes me feel for all the sensible Americans, who have to deal with his never ending shitstorm of whatthefuckary. Hang in there mates, this ever looming cloud of unfathomable idiocy will end.

  6. So if I spend months setting up a drug deal and then find out the police are on to me & cancel the deal the day I’m caught but I get a friend to phone me and have the following conversation I’m INNOCENT?!:
    Friend: “Do you want to set up a drug deal”?
    Me: “No, I do not want to set up a drug deal, absolutely no drug deals. I do not want to deal drugs”.

  7. Trump, allegedly in a private conversation: "i want nothing from Ukraine! I want nothing!"
    Trump, as seen on live TV talking to reporters in public: "Ukraine should investigate the Bidens. And China, too, China should investigate the Bidens."

  8. Trump should be impeached and removed from office based on this rant alone.

    BTW – the timing of Trump’s response to Sondland’s question is just a little bit important. No really, the timing of this Trump statement is important. That conversation with Sondland that Trump is talking about took place after the existence of whistleblower complaint had become public knowledge and Trump was getting calls from members of Congress asking why the aid funding was being held. So, Trump’s bribery plan had been busted when he had this conversation with Sondland. So, at that point, of course he is going to say “no quid pro quo” because he is trying to cover his tracks. Now, Republicans will believe Trump’s denials without question, but they don’t believe a word of witness testimony whether it is firsthand, second hand, or any hand testimony.

    BTW #2 – why would anybody say “no quid pro quo” in response to being asked “what do you want from Ukraine?” At that point, he hasn’t been accused of anything as the existence of the whistleblower complain had become knowledge, but the details were not yet known. And when the details of the whistleblower complaint did become, nobody used the term “quid pro quo” in any allegations or questioning of the holdback of aid. So, Trump is telling Sondland “no quid pro quo” when nobody outside of the Administration had yet alleged anything about any wrongdoing. Based on this reply to Sondland, Trump knew his bribery plot was discovered (or being discovered) and this kind of reply is something he would get from an attorney, as in “If bribery is alleged, there was no quid pro quo”. But, Trump blurts out “no quid pro quo”‘ before there are any charges or allegations of wrongdoing, Thereby, spilling the beans on his knowledge that he had done something illegal and was prematurely trying to cover up.

    Timing is everything!

  9. If trump just calms down , he’ll be fine even if they impeach he’ll be acquitted….the economy is making everyone happy ,he won’t be removed. He’s his own worst enemy ….

  10. Trump said he wants nothing, but WAAAAAAIIIT, you don't understaaand!!! He didn't actually mean what he said!!! Dipsh1t pink-haired "liberal progressives" know better what he meant!!!
