So another Rep talking point here is saying it is all about the call. The call is what initiated this, the call isn't what Trump is being investigated for. The investigation and the impeachment is about the whole thing, the meetings, the call, Kerry, trips to the Ukraine by other people and on and on.
Whether Trump said quid pro quo, or bribe, or any other particular word isn't what this is about.
Because that's how Trump got elected.
He just kept repeating lies until people believed him.
The wall, illegal immigrants, Hillary's emails, climate change is a hoax, Obama's birth certificate, Biden... all things he invented, lied about, or totally distorted.
Yet look at the folks here parroting these things back like they're real talking points.
They're just following his lead. Like others will. Just like others will intimidate witnesses, make deals with other nation-states to get elected, use taxpayer money to pay themselves and their families, and lie, lie, lie...
Trump will not be president forever no matter what happens. But what he normalizes might just last forever. And eventually there will be a president Trump supporters hate, but will do exactly what he did, and it will be viewed as OK because Trump did it and got away with it.
