“Dollars for Dirt” – Congressman Jason Crow nailed it. So did Adam Schiff. What Trump’s people were up to and why, became so clear yesterday. Through one phone call, Trump put himself as the director of the dirty and illegal scheme of using his authority to corrupt the 2020 election. Trump was circumventing his own administration. “Talk to Rudy” was a way of keeping the “investigation announcements” out of the way of normal channels – including the National Security Council, FBI, CIA, and Foreign Service. It did not go unnoticed.
It was Trump’s scheme to demand that Ukraine’s President Zelensky help Trump to smear Joe Biden and the Democrat Party in return for desperately needed military assistance.
Trump wanted to cheat in the elections, even before a Democratic candidate was nominated at the convention.
I believe now “Drain the Swamp” must be replaced with “Dirt for Dollars.”
The acquittal of Trump is almost certain, but I so hope he loses in his second trial, in November 2020, where the American electorate can vote him out.
