Signs of how desperate President Trump’s defenders are getting:

1. They’re attacking and threatening a lawfully protected whistleblower when that WHISTLEBLOWER’S ACCOUNT HAS BEEN REPEATEDLY CONFIRMED BY THIS WHITE HOUSE.
2. They’re claiming Dem senators, myself included, “did the same thing” in 2018. Yet we (a) never asked Ukraine to open any investigation, (b) never threatened aid (in fact we approved record levels of aid), and...
2. (cont.) (c) wrote to learn, following a NYT report, if Trump ALSO INTERFERED W/ THOSE OTHER INVESTIGATIONS Fact checkers have repeatedly found this Trump claim is FALSE.
2. (cont.) Trump secretly pressing Ukraine to investigate a political rival is the POLAR OPPOSITE of us publicly asking whether Trump also pressed Ukraine to shut down legitimate investigations a year earlier.
3. The President’s lawyer, Mr. Giuliani, was paid half a million by a company actually named “FRAUD GUARANTEE,” the owners of which helped Trump/Giuliani’s efforts in Ukraine and were arrested last week for campaign finance crimes.

As we say in Vermont, Jeezum Crow.
