'Brace yourself in the coming weeks for smoke screens of obfuscation, but anchor yourself to this thought: What if the wrongdoing simply involved the head of a Social Security office, a principal, a hospital director or a journalist? Why allow a president to get away with what would be a firing offense for anyone else? Imagine that a high school principal expelled the police chief’s son but offered to readmit the boy if the police department would just open a criminal investigation into his ex-wife before their child custody hearing. Or suppose that the head of a public hospital offered to provide free medical care to employees of a construction company if it remodeled his kitchen?'

"In every case, we might disagree about whether to call this bribery, extortion or a quid pro quo, and might disagree about precisely which statute was violated, but there is no doubt this would be a firing offense and perhaps lead to a criminal investigation.

"Shouldn't we hold the president of the United States to as high a standard as the head of a Social Security office, a principal, a hospital director and a journalist?

"Indeed, the Ukraine situation is still more insidious. Trump's bullying of Ukraine and suspension of military assistance benefited our strategic rival, Russia, and it came as Ukrainians were dying in the fight for their country's survival after a Russian invasion."

Question: Is the Oath of Office a Legal Contract...or just theater for Inauguration Day?

If a contract...it's been violated right and left....meaning that Trump has violated the contract and is guilty of fraud for accepting any salary or benefit from Public Money.

If the Oath is just for show...that's important to know.
