How about the fact that Trump has now invited at least three countries (that would be Ukraine, Russia, and China if you've lost count) to meddle with our elections?
For Mueller, it was this: If you can’t prove collusion, you cannot impeach.
For Ukraine, Trump wants this: If you cannot prove a quid pro quo, then you cannot impeach.
Ukraine is the cancer on Trump’s Presidency. Career public servants like William Taylor, Fiona Hill, and Marie Yovanovitch are every bit as compelling as a reel-to-reel tape recording of a smoking gun.
News flash from the irony factory: John Bolton could well be the voice of truth and patriotism that levels Donald Trump’s presidency. Should John Bolton testify, the impact of that testimony is going to be an 8.0 on the truth Richter Scale. Conservatives do not think John Bolton is a “radical unelected bureaucrat waging war on the Constitution.” When Bolton stands up, swears an oath, and tells Congress that there was a quid pro quo, that he did call Rudy Giuliani’s shadow foreign policy a “drug deal” and that he did call Rudy a “hand grenade that would blow us all up,” conservatives will have to listen.
Do you really want open, public testimony, Republicans? Because it was the open testimony in the Watergate hearings that led to John Dean, Alexander Butterfield, and the collapse of public support for Richard Nixon.
Perhaps that blaze now rages because there are just too many ironies in the fire.
