So, now that the jig is pretty much up (for many of us, anyway) with respect to Trump and Ukraine, I suspect the following is strong possibility from Senate Pubs. This also assumes the relevant evidence and testimony will be heard during the impeachment trial.
“Yes, Trump lied/misinformed about his dealings with Ukraine and has been impeached for it. But so was Clinton impeached for lying. This behavior, while inappropriate, is sometimes how foreign policy is conducted, though we are going to have show more oversight of this in the future. In the end however, it is not worthy of removing the President from office.”
Face-saving ploy or no?
