I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it.
President Donald J. Trump of the United States said this in a phone call with the President of Ukraine, Vladimir Zelensky. The quote was taken directly from the transcript (with corrections to match the text of the transcript because copy-and-pasting from a PDF with noise isn’t an exact science). In this section, Trump wants to know who has Hillary’s missing emails. According to him, rumors exist (“they say”) that someone at Crowdstrike (or just someone in Ukraine) has the server with Hillary’s emails that suddenly went missing in 2016. Is it his job to make sure the server is found? Is it grounds for impeachment?
Democrats claim that investigating political rivals such as Hillary and Biden is against the Constitution for the President, citing that “the sitting President ‘shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.’” Thus they decided to call Trump’s call to investigation bribery instead, because that is against the Constitution, not a quid pro quo as they previously suggested.
Republicans, however, claim there is no quid pro quo and there is no bribery. There are even sources that also claim the impeachment inquiry is more fair than the Salem Witch Trials. Trump himself claims that his right to due process is being violated. A non-American source says Hillary used a personal email server for everything and that “[s]he did not use, or even activate, a state.gov email account, which would have been hosted on servers owned and managed by the US government.”
As you said yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine.
Remember how the Democrats were hung up on the Mueller report? Even the President, who was being prosecuted for Russian collusion, was disappointed in the outcome. That’s how bad it was. Immediately the Democrats switched gears. Trump is again citing rumors that the Mueller probe started with Ukraine. This leads me to believe that the Democrats were the ones who colluded with Russia and/or their neighbor Ukraine.
Please remember to be civil in the comments. Give me corrections and I’ll add it to the article if I can verify it.
