'The renewed focus on Ukraine raises jangling questions: How did dealing in influence to burnish the fortunes of repugnant world leaders for large payoffs become a business model? How could America’s leading lights convince themselves—and us—that this is acceptable?Voicing this question now invites an immediate objection: “false equivalence.” Let’s dispense with it. What Donald Trump has done—in this case, according to the summary of a single phone call, lean on a foreign president to launch two spurious investigations in order to hurt political rivals, offering the services of the U.S. Department of Justice for the purpose—is shockingly corrupt, a danger to American democracy, and worthy of impeachment.'

I have a file in my larger file on MENDACITY, which is titled "ROGUE Lawyers. The cartoon that sits at the top of this file, features a judge who says;; " The jury is instructed to ignore common sense, logic, justice and the Big Picture, and consider only the minutiae and technical loopholes, presented to you by those people who are paid to conceal the truth.''

It is ironic but not funny -- in the face of what ex-mayor Rudy has done, what Barr and the DNI director have done to conceal the evidence..Four government lawyers appointed by President Trump face mounting scrutiny over the roles they played in seeking to limit the exposure of his prodding the Ukrainian government to dig up dirt on his leading 2020 challenger. Those efforts prompted that whistleblower complaint that was released this morning and have led to an official impeachment inquiry.The Daily 202: All the president's lawyers. Four government attorneys find themselves embroiled in Trump's Ukraine mess. - The Washington Post

What Obama/Biden did to Ukraine was a war crime. They trained and funded violent miliitias and staged a bloody coup. That coup led to a civil war with 10,000 dead. Biden then installed his son as a conduit to siphon profits from the junta he helped install. That's PILLAGE, an international crime and far worse than what Trump is accused of.
