We have a treaty with Ukraine that calls for cooperation in rooting out corruption. Trump is fulfilling his duties following through with those requirements. A former sitting vice-president used US taxpayer money to bribe a foreign government for the purpose of having them stop an investigation into the Vice-President’s son’s corrupt business. That is exactly the type of corruption that needs to be exposed and dealt with ……..whether or not that former Vice-President is running for office again. Obviously it is uncomfortable for the left to have their criminality exposed, but Trump has an obligation to US taxpayers/citizens.
"Trump has a obligation to US taxpayers"? Here's where you lose credibility.
I agree that Biden had a conflict of interest. The prosecutor he and others wanted fired was looking at corruption and maybe that would have entailed this gas company. What in God's name Hunter Biden was doing on the board of that company is beyond me. And let's just say hypothetically that the prosecutor was never intending to investigate the company where Biden Jr was a board member. Just having a conflict of interest like that should have been so obvious to Joe Biden. He completely put himself into position be in this mess.
Let's not pretend Trump was pushing the Ukrainians to investigate Biden out of some obligation to the US taxpayers. He wanted to take down a rival - pure and simple. In a phone call between the leader of the Ukraine and the president of the United States, there is a huge power imbalance. Trump clearly is using this to go after an specific individual. Just like Biden, he put himself into this mess.
Partisans like you - left and right - who never admit that their side has any fault are what is wrong with he current political debate. It's why everything is so hostile. You spoke of being "intoxicated" by the DC media machine. Can't you see that this is exactly as your come across - completely intoxicated by the right wing media complex?
