It’s Not the “Quid Pro Quo” That Makes It A Crime

Everybody is running around discussing whether President Trump’s favor asked of President Zelensky contains a quid pro quo. The thinking that would make it an impeachable offense. But that’s not required.

All that needs to exist is the ask. The request of something of value to the petitioner. In this case dirt on a potential opponent of the incumbent president. Just the ask. The petitioned party needn’t do anything. The actual action never needs to occur…the asset never needs to trade hands.

It’s simply the ask.

Impeach the jerk.

P.S. for some reason this didn’t publish when scheduled.
