This will probably also be in the articles of impeachment. I'd assume there will at least a half dozen of them.

How on Earth can Congressional Republicans defend him using the office to cajole foreign governments to investigate and provide dirt on his opponents in the next election? This is exactly what they have spent the past 2 years saying he didn't do with Russia and now Trump himself has admitted to doing it. I mean, they'll try and say it's no big deal or that he's just too dumb to know better, but this is pretty hard to defend against.


Ok but then
if the GOP members of Congress vote no, but lose the vote in the House,
and their constituents don't think any less of them for it,
and the Senate then has a straight party line vote and does not remove him,
and the GOP Senators constituents don't think any less of them for it,
...then what are they supposed to do? The right thing? They don't have to defend it to you or me, we have Dubin and Duckworth. They only have to defend it to the people who vote for them, and until those folks are ready to vote against their Senators there's no incentive for those Senators to remove a POTUS--criminal as he may be--that the ol' values voters back home love.

Maybe this had something to do with the WH decision to release the summary:
Acting director of national intelligence threatened to resign if he couldn’t speak freely before Congress on whistleblower complaint

If they knew that the acting DNI is willing to appear before Congress perhaps they thought their only choice was to release a tidbit that reveals the crux of the situation, and then try to spin it as just "Trump being Trump" and use the idiocy defense like they did against the obstruction of justice claims in the Mueller Report. "He's unconventional. He just doesn't know any better. He didn't mean anything bad or criminal by it, this is just his way of doing what he thinks is best for the country."

Trump brought up [expletive] CrowdStrike with the Ukrainians. He either believes this nonsense or he has a weird initiation ritual with potential cronies.

Out of a need to always go with the weirdest option?
