    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    None of that happened.

    What's the term for a leftwinger still crying about getting their ass kicked in the 2016 election?

    Pick whichever one applies to you, boy.

    In order to bribe someone doesn't the person/government have to know that the money is being held up pending compliance? The Ukraine didn't know the aid was on hold at the time of the call. So much for bribery. or extortion, but nice Schiff shuffle.

    You're a much worse liar than Schiff. You should be embarrassed lying like this. That would require a brain and a conscience.

    It's all very clear, concise and witnessed by many. Denial ... not just a river in Egypt.

    That's funny! They said that? You'd better go tell Schiff to put you on the stand, I'm sure he and the rest of the clown show will believe you

    More than money was involved. It was also a presidential meeting. Zelensky wanted the appearance of the US being in back of him. He was like Trump, a TV actor who got hit by lightning and became president of his country. He wanted to get some big deal done.
    Zelensky was going to give Trump whatever he wanted. The missiles were a big point. Z knew they were passed by the house and he needed them badly.

    Your version is an outright fabrication. Your defense of that lie suggests a pathological component to your insanity.

    Career Diplomats are testifying that Trump ISN'T working for the interests of the U.S. but working for his OWN INTERESTS. Namely, to destroy a Political Rival.
