    Which is wholly irrelevant since the World Series is won through who wins four games first. In a way, that’s you. Running up the voter tally, in California, isn’t how the president is elected.
    For the sarcastically impaired the following is said in jest

    But the "so-called victor" won all four by only a single run -- with one game even going into extra innings, whereas the other team won their three games all by 4 runs or more -- with one game being a 10-1 blowout.

    This isn't a trial, it's an investigation. That's what the Democrats keep telling us, right? So why is Schiff starting each hearing by stating a conclusion as if he were a prosecutor giving his closing argument to a jury?

    What a farce.

    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    Which is still not a crime - if it were an abuse of power which it isn't. The President, not Congress, sets foreign policy - as long as he doesn't re-appropriate the funds it's a non-issue - he's within his power as President.

    Right, Obama withheld funds for Ukraine for three years...

    No, Obama didn't ever withhold congressionally appropriated funding to Ukaraine.

    Seer is partly right, in his habitual sloppy way:

    Source: politifact

    The 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, which became law in November 2015, called for "lethal assistance such as anti-armor weapon systems, mortars, crew-served weapons and ammunition, grenade launchers and ammunition, and small arms and ammunition."

    The legislation also called for counter-artillery radars, unmanned aerial tactical surveillance systems and other equipment.

    But experts told us that the equipment ultimately provided during Obama’s tenure was non-lethal aid.

    "The first lethal deliveries came from Trump," said Jim Townsend, deputy assistant secretary of defense for European and NATO Policy during the Obama administration.

    This means that your statement here equally damns Obama.

    It IS an abuse of power when congressional appropriated military aid is withheld by a president until he gets an investigation of a domestic political rival - as has been confirmed by numerous witnesses including ambassador Gordon Sondland. He confirmed Trump withheld US support for Ukraine in exchange for investigations into his political rival Joe Biden.
