Republicans are right, there was no quid pro quo. It was a conspiracy to commit extortion

The tentacles of this conspiracy reach far and wide throughout this administration and democracy is in a very fragile place.

1. Trumps whole life is extortion for personal gain

Thatís how he makes deals... find dirt or weakness, exploit, threaten, leverage, deal. He bends or settles when the dirt on him is a larger pile.

Forget the Squid Go Pro, call it Extortion like you said.

2. Nonsense. But THE FIRST REQUEST was the first serious crime.

Ukraine didn't have to promise to come through any more than a bank manager has to agree to empty out the vault for an attempted bank robbery to occur; just making the manager think he's in danger if he doesn't come through with the request is enough.

Then came the rest and the actual quid in response to the quo.
