An important congresswoman blurted out a fact that has Donald Trump dancing for joy.
This one key fact about impeachment could bring impeachment tumbling down.
A top Democrat revealed a secret about quid pro quo that made Adam Schiff furious.
The Democrats have bet their 2020 hopes on a weak partisan impeachment that isn’t working in their favor.
Most American voters didn’t see this impeachment as something that is particularly relevant to their lives.
They care more about issues like the economy and border security than whether Trump’s said something that could possibly be twisted into some implied deal.
But despite the fact that they are wasting taxpayers’ dollars and aren’t even helping their own cause, Democrats are still continuing trying to prove that Trump offered the Ukrainians a quid pro quo.
But Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI) just blew a huge hole in their strategy.
She let slip that having quid pro quos for foreign aid is a common practice.
According to the Daily Wire:
Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI) told a group of reporters on Monday that politicians routinely engage in what she claimed was a “quid pro quo” between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, saying that the difference was that they did not do so for alleged personal gain.
MLive quoted Slotkin as saying, “We always do this kind of quid pro quo — to be honest, we do it — but we do it for the national security interests of the United States, not for personal or political gain.”
On whether impeachment and removal should be pursued, Slotkin said, “I think the facts should lead that conversation, not politics.”
The Democrats can’t just prove that Trump withheld aid because he wanted something in return.
If Trump withheld aid because he thought the Europeans should be paying more, or because we shouldn’t be giving money to countries that meddle in our elections, or because he wants Ukraine to clean up its act and be less corrupt, those are all valid reasons to withhold aid.
The Democrats have to prove that there was a quid pro quo that Trump made with the Ukrainian President to unfairly investigate a political rival.
And they can’t do that.
No witness has come forward that has said that Trump wanted to pressure the Ukrainian President into investigating Joe Biden.
In fact, the witnesses have testified that Trump said that he wanted “No quid pro quo.”
The question of Ukrainian aid never came up in the phone call.
The Democrats have been investigating Trump needlessly for years. And while it has been a waste of time, it didn’t hurt Trump because the Mueller investigation showed that all the accusations against Trump were groundless.
If Joe Biden is innocent then he shouldn’t worry about being investigated.
The Democrats want to use every dirty trick in the book and blame Republicans for using the same tactics that they are using themselves.
Do you think that making quid pro quo the center of impeachment is backfiring on the Democrats?
