He asked for an investigation of Uranium One (Sessions failed to do it) and investigations of 2016 foreign influence. Also the Obama admin asked Ukraine for a Manafort investigation in 2016 and that is ok by me. Manafort evaded taxes big time by hiding foreign income, and the easiest way to find out is from the foreign government.
Yet if FDR had bragged about gaining those bases in the Caribbean as an example of his foreign relations prowess during the 1940 campaign, according to you he would have committed a crime by demanding that quid pro quo.
By the way that quiz pro quo violated the Neutrality Act so Jim Noble is quite right in suggesting we dig up FDR and retroactively impeach him for obstruction of Congress.
Has Nancy Pelosi violates a campaign finance statute, since she has solicited something of value that would benefit her campaign from Mitch McConnell in return for sending impeachment over to the House?
“But that’s you know I don’t think that there’s a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn’t Biden.”

Did Obama violate the statute you cited by accepting the Nobel Prize since that benefitted his re-election? Im just wondering where the dividing line falls? Since everything positive that happens to a politician benefits his or her re-election then soliciting or accepting anything of value would be a crime, if were to follow your logic.
In fact the mulligan is a bigger offense.
And we’ve already been promised more impeachments by dems based on Trump’s “future” crimes.
It’s already 3 years. They should put some effort into finding a real candidate instead.
Not that there is one out there :)
They pull all this fake crap on Russia and Ukraine and yet they want to call this a high crime and misdemeanor?
The Clinton Foundation publicly reports, and its foundation spokesman confirmed, that other foreign entities have given more than the Pinchuk Foundation (which is listed as having given between $10 million and $25 million).
Will Barr look into this? Is there any chance the MSM will ever hold the Clinton's to the same standards they hold Republicans to?
Chris Wallace spent time this morning tying to pooh pooh the idea of looking at the Ukraine/democrat corruption. He is such a tool of deep state democrats.
The New York Times, reportedly, has a top team of ten reporters working on a bombshell expose on how MEAN PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TO CHINA.
They are assiduously, but fair-mindedly going to hold it until it’s closer to election.
Do any of us think that the powers that be at the Times have lost their minds in their quest to destroy.
Then-NYAG Eric Schneiderman Let Clinton Foundation skip identifying foreign donors
By Bob Fredericks September 6, 2016 | 9:37pm
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman gave the Clinton Foundation a pass on identifying foreign donors in its charitable filings making it impossible to know if it got any special favors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, according to a report Tuesday.
Scripps News found that the foundation and its subsidiary, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, took in $225 million in government donations between 2010 and 2014. New Yorks charity law clearly states: Organizations that received a contribution or grant from a government agency during the reporting period shall include the name of each agency from which contributions were received and the amount of each contribution. But both the foundation and the CHAI failed to do that, and Schneiderman, a member of Clintons leadership council in New York and a fierce critic of Donald Trump, did nothing about it.
On its website, the Clinton Foundation reveals its foreign donors, but using only broad ranges, such as $5 million to $10 million, without any time frames. The IRS doesnt require such disclosures.In 2009, Clintons first year at the State Department, the foundation disclosed a lump sum of $122 million in foreign-government donations in its New York paperwork, posting the total amount on a form that requires all charities to list each government contribution separately.
Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin said, This is a ridiculous accusation. The Clinton Foundation goes above and beyond the disclosure requirements by listing every donor on their website and updating the list quarterly. Schneidermans office said, The Clinton Foundations disclosures regarding funding from foreign governments are in compliance with New York law.
Other charities complied, including the George W. Bush foundation, which reported receiving $5 million from Saudi Arabia and $500,000 from Kuwait.
Hillary and the smirking Eric Schneiderman (right).
As NY AG Eric Schneiderman helped the Clinton Foundation hide foreign donations.
Schneiderman was recently ousted from office for slapping choking and spitting at women in his bedroom for sex.
The lawman threatened to tap one women's phone.
FOREIGN DONORS TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION GOT STATE DEPT ARMS DEALS
Donors to The Clinton Foundation) got lucrative Hillary/Obama State Dept arms deals.Obama got his cut.
Notice it is now Mr. Trump, repeated through out the article?
Get your head out of your ass and take a pill for your mild case of TDS.
I think youre right. Id love to know why quid pro quo is illegal. Anti-Trumpsters are interpreting this Ukrainian thing in the worst possible way. They frame this as an attempt to dig up dirt to affect a presidential election. However, the president is charged with enforcing the laws, ensuring aid is properly used, and conducting foreign policy. Saying there was no quid pro quo at allwhen those are done all the timelooks like a coverup if there actually was one.
Sondland’s call to the President was an attempt to entrap Trump with a wide open question in my opinion. Trump didn’t give them anything. Case closed.
Thank you, by the way, for answering my question as to the law that prohibits a quid pro quo, even though its clear the statute does not cover the circumstances of an official making a request in keeping with the duties of his office as in this case. Now, has a politician ever actually been prosecuted under this law?
By the way Im still waiting for an explanation from you as to how exactly the transcript clearly demonstrates any violation of the statute.
NYT is beating a dead horse ... only the die-hard leftist chorus that the NYT preaches to gives a crap about the Ukraine farce ... the rest of the country is busy making Christmas preparations ....
“President Trump simply wasnt keen on the idea of U.S. taxpayers pissing away hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to a foreign country in Europe. “
ESPECIALLY since the rest of Europe, which should have had way more dogs in this fight than the U.S., didn’t seen to give a crap or a Euro themselves ...
