So, Mulvaney admitted a quid pro quo in Ukranian phone call by Trump, will Trump supporters care that he broke the law?

    Nope.  He could charcoal grill a toddler on the south lawn of the White House and they would find a way to rationalize why it was okay to do that.

    As you can see, they will find a way to excuse it.

    They will say there was nothing wrong with it. That, as Mulvaney said, "We do it all the time."

    They will claim he didn't say what he said. Or that the words don't mean what they mean.

    They will claim, as Mulvaney did when walking back his comments, that the media "twisted his words." Even though he was asked specifically to clarify his apparent admission of a Quid Pro Quo, and he responded definitively yes.

    Trump's supporters bought into their own gaslighting years ago, and now are so committed to it that they will literally defend anything.

    Once again, the quid pro quo is NOT THE ISSUE.  Republicans are throwing a ball and hoping you will chase it.

    Did Trump use the presidency to solicit something of personal value from a foreign government?  If he did, that is ILLEGAL, whether he offered something in exchange or not.

    The quid pro quo is not relevant.  Don't let Trump supporters fool you into thinking it's the entire issue.

    Trump said he could shot a person in broad day light in the middle of 5th avenue and not lose any support. The more I watch the cult that follows him, the more I am convinced he was right about that.

    It is pretty clear for anonotrud and sinner's answers they are simply ignoring the crime Trump committed when he asked foreign governments to provide him dirt on a political rival. The chairwoman of the FEC reminded Trump publicly *twice* that action was illegal.

    "A quid pro quo you say? Otherwise known as a negotiation. " Legal when negotiating for the country. Illegal for the president when it is for personal gain. Those close to the conversation know it was for Trump's personal gain. A 20 year state department employee resigned to avoid the perception of supporting Trumps actions in any way. Sure is a lot to throw away for nothing.

      And I've seen his supporters actually deny he said that. Even after being shown the actual video of him saying it.

    I think Mulvaney was inept. I heard from an Robert Ray (of Ken Starr, Clinton investigation fame), recently and he said he prosecutes such cases commonly. He said that this was in no way anything like those kinds of corruption cases.

    Trump is not guilty of what the Democrats are charging him with . . . again.

      Really?
      A member of one of the most blatantly politically-biased "investigations" in American history claimed his work was legitimate, while something else isn't?
