    House Democrats’ impeachment report accuses Trump of obstruction, other misconduct

    "The impeachment inquiry into Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, uncovered a months-long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election. As described in this executive summary and the report that follows, President Trump’s scheme subverted U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine and undermined our national security in favor of two politically motivated investigations that would help his presidential reelection campaign. The President demanded that the newly-elected Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, publicly announce investigations into a political rival that he apparently feared the most, former Vice President Joe Biden, and into a discredited theory that it was Ukraine, not Russia, that interfered in the 2016 presidential election. To compel the Ukrainian President to do his political bidding, President Trump conditioned two official acts on the public announcement of the investigations: a coveted White House visit and critical U.S. military assistance Ukraine needed to fight its Russian adversary.

    During a July 25, 2019, call between President Trump and President Zelensky, President Zelensky expressed gratitude for U.S. military assistance. President Trump immediately responded by asking President Zelensky to “do us a favor though” and openly pressed for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden and the 2016 conspiracy theory. In turn, President Zelensky assured President Trump that he would pursue the investigation and reiterated his interest in the White House meeting. Although President Trump’s scheme intentionally bypassed many career personnel, it was undertaken with the knowledge and approval of senior Administration officials, including the President’s Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Secretary of Energy Rick Perry. In fact, at a press conference weeks after public revelations about the scheme, Mr. Mulvaney publicly acknowledged that the President directly tied the hold on military aid to his desire to get Ukraine to conduct a political investigation, telling Americans to “get over it.”

    The most damning sentence in the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report

    The House Intelligence Committee just released a 300-page report with the conclusions from its impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s actions involving Ukraine.

    You can read the full report, and if you have the time and inclination, you should. Or you can read the much shorter executive summary.

    But all you really need to read is this one sentence from the report, which encapsulates all of its major findings:[T]he impeachment inquiry has found that President Trump, personally and acting through agents within and outside of the U.S. government, solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, to benefit his reelection.”

    That’s it and that’s all.

    So we’re normal by laughing at butthurt know nothings like you while we have more money in our pockets. Spending for the holidays isn’t dropping like you wanted. Hoping for people to be hurt economically. Typical libtard. By the way, best STFU if you took the lower Trump tax rates and didn’t pay the higher Obozo rates. But you’re a hypocrite so.......

    Want to make a bet? If Donald does not get removed from office never post here again and vice versa.

    Want to make that bet?

    Did you just return from the Moon? Soliciting foreign assistance in a US election is a crime. Obstructing a congressional investigation is a crime. I should note, the commission of a crime is not necessary to warrant impeachment. Just ask Lindsey.

    Are you nuts? Make a bet that Senate Repubs will vote on the evidence, honor the Constitution and their oath of office, instead of making a political calculation on their re-election? Why would I do that?
