#3 Is quid pro quo in such circumstances against the law? I mean, if the president is concerned that an American citizen is involved in corrupt activities in a foreign country, wouldn't it be wise for the president to seek some assurance that vast amounts of money meant for legitimate military aid to the country will not be used to line the pockets of corrupt individuals?

#5 House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy: GOP Destroyed Impeachment Witness William Taylor’s Testimony.

Also see:

Trump allies push back on ‘quid pro quo,’ say envoy testified Ukraine initially unaware of aid holdup.

Schifferbrains selectively leaking little tidbits to make Trump look bad but withholding exculpatory information, as is his modus operandi. There is nothing else he can do. Forget Thanksgiving. Forget Christmas. He'll drag this shitshow out until November 2020 while his MSM allies follow merrily along for maximum propaganda effect. But after that he will no longer be the Intelligence Committee chairman.

"Oh, we've really got him this time," is what they've been saying since January 2017 and even before then.

But they've got nothing except loud mouths and a pack of lies. There will be no impeachment. That was never even part of the plan.
