The weak and dishonest case against Trump

Here is Adam Schiff's speech summarizing the case against the President:
Donald J. Trump has abused the powers of his presidency in that using the powers of his high office, President Trump solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States presidential election. President Trump solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 election. That has been proved.

He did so through a scheme or course of conduct that included soliciting the government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations that would benefit his reelection, harm the election prospects of a political opponent, and influence 2020 US presidential election to his advantage. That has been proved. ...

President Trump acting both directly and through his agents within and outside the United States government corruptly solicited the government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations into, A, a political opponent, Former Vice President, Joseph R. Biden Jr. That has been proved. ...

In all of this, President Trump abused the powers of the presidency by ignoring and injuring national security and other vital national interests to obtain an improper personal political benefit. That has been proved. He also betrayed the nation by abusing his high office to enlist a foreign power in corrupting democratic elections. That has been proved. Wherefore, President Trump by such conduct has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security and the constitution if allowed to remain in office and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self governments and the rule of law. That has been proved. ...

Those facts are not contested. We have met our burden.
If all that is true, then there is no need to have any witnesses.

Apparently the Dems are damaging Biden by calling attention to his family's corruption, and trying to make up for it by holding Sanders and Warren hostage in the Senate.

In the 2016 election, Ukraine openly supported Hillary Clinton. Trump has not asked them to take any position in the 2020 election. He only asked for some information.

The idea that there is something corrupt about asking for info on Biden corruption is just weirdo-Jew-think.

If anyone is corrupting American elections it is the Jewish news media, Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, and their collaborators. They are only going thru this exercise because they are scared that they cannot beat Trump in the Nov. 2020 election.

The US State Dept is filled with warmongers who are eager to fight Mideast wars and revive the Cold War. Trump was elected President to put a stop to that. The gist of the complaints against Trump are that the Deep State does not agree with his foreign policy.

All this talk of "constitution" and "rule of law" is obscures the fact that Trump did nothing contrary to the constitution, rule of law, or historical precedent. It is amazing that Schiff's team spent 3 years trying to frame Trump for a crime, and this is all they have. This will all end with Trump being exonerated of everything.

I'm not Jewish and I think that tying military assistance to participation in skullduggery is impeachable conduct, as do a majority of Americans apparently. I can understand why nazis and racists have glommed onto the Trump horror show but I suggest they enjoy it while it lasts because that won't be too long.

No, I don't think most people consider the Ukraine phone call to be impeachable. I doubt that Schiff himself really believes it. He has been pro-impeachment ever since Trump was elected, and he has never said that anything like this was impeachable before.

The impeachment hearings have not changed public opinion much. The Trump-haters who have always wanted him out, still want him out. Others think that it is a big nothing burger.

You say "nazis and racists have glommed onto the Trump horror show". Do you mean the Trump-haters at places like CNN? They are the ones who cannot stop talking about Trump.
