Everyone except the most diehard Trump supporters acknowledges that the president tried to get Ukraine to investigate possible wrong-doing by Joe Biden. That former national security adviser John Bolton reportedly claims in a new book that Trump wanted to withhold military aid from Ukraine until it committed to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden isn't startling.
The question is whether or not it is cause for removing Trump from office. You can argue both ways.
But you'd think that it was the final nail in Trump's coffin from seeing and hearing the orgasmic reporting and commentary on the disclosure of Biden's charge. Bombshell. Bombshell. Bombshell.
The news, of course, came precisely as Trump's legal team was making its defense in the Senate, squeezing out media coverage. Mission accomplished.
Yet, it's ho-hum news. It adds nothing new to the facts: Trump tried to pressure Ukraine to investigate Biden, and he should have. It smells of corruption. Trump's critics are equally blind to the conclusion that the two Bidens' actions are at least as corrupt as lagging son Hunter a Chicag0-style, do-nothing and bountiful job for which he was unqualified.
Again, AP displays gross bias in its coverage, reporting, for instance, that "there has been no evidence of wrongdoing by either the former vice president or his son." Astonishing.
