President Trump asks for assistants from Ukraine and offers nothing in return and is accused of a Quid-Pro-Quo. Well, today it was revealed as a Quid-Pro-No. There was no Quid-Pro-Quo from Trump to the Ukraine President.
Here is the exact verbiage from the phone call:
President Donald Trump: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people … The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the attorney general call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.
Not one word of “If you do this, then we will do this”. It is a simple and legal request from the leader of the free world for the Ukraine to look into why a prosecutor was fired from a Biden investigation.
And why was Joe Biden directly involved in that? Hmmm, the world wants to know. We shall see. A Quid-Pro-No.
