The wrong answers about the impeachment insanity are in the article. Worth reading to know the false premises & arguments
BUT
The reasons none of them stand up to reality are in this thread

1. Trump asked #Ukraine to dig up dirt on political rivals

Reality- As evidenced in the transcript Trump asked them to investigate election interference & potential corruption by #BidenCorruption
&
We have a treaty for such requests
Which he followed
congress.gov/treaty-documen…
Bill Clinton signed this agreement and it calls for the US to ask Ukraine to work with our Attorney General when issues of potential criminality are identified.

The fact that some of those identified as potential criminals are political rivals of Trump is not relevant
2. There was a quid pro quo & Trump used the threat of withdrawing US aid to Ukraine to force an investigation

Reality- That's not what Trump did, it's what Biden did
The aid money did not come up in the call & Ukraine didn't even know it was held up

3. Trump has records of calls w/ foreign leaders moved to a super secret server to hide them

Reality- Good!
Previous leaks of calls w/ foreign leaders had damaged US foreign policy
The President is the ultimate arbiter of classification levels

If he determines a need to restrict access to these records he can absolutely do so
There was obviously good cause

The records were still archived
&
The only victims of this legitimate decision were partisan leakers & their media collaborators
The Mueller Witch Hunt & this impeachment charade are just window dressing

The Left is so obsessed with their hatred of Trump
They will do or say anything to remove him from office
& they're scared to face him at the ballot box
They should be
