Do you think that this Ukraine scam is actually a question of "Who Actually Runs the Government"?
And it is sort of a power struggle between the old line "deep state" who think they run the place, and not the temporary President who would be in power for only a few years. Trump has been critical of them in general (MAGA attitude, etc.) and really hard on them in specifics (Iraq war blunder, ISSI, etc.). That all of this starting off with the Mueller investigation was sort of payback for ruining Hillary's historical claim to be the greatest American woman? And the payback continues on even though in times past the scandal would be Vice President Biden's corruption? The payback hate overriding good sense? That the "deep state" has to take out Trump to keep their power to run the government and most of the world. Simply, who actually runs this place.

No, it's about a President who thinks he's above the law and can do whatever he wants regardless of the US Constitution.

If you actually believe in that "deep state" crap you're dumb as a rock and should be stricken off the voter rolls. The president can't ask Ukraine, or China, or any foreign government to investigate his political opponents so stop making lame excuses.

The "Deep State" is nothing more than thousands of career gov't professionals who care deeply about American democracy, the Constitution, the rule of law, and America's security. They have been trained to recognize what constitutes a threat to the republic. Trust them. If you don't you're either a fool or, worse yet, have placed foreign interests above America's---something the so-called 'deep state' will never do.

If Trump withheld federal funding to a foreign security force until the foreign country's leader agreed to investigate his principal political rival in the upcoming election--and that's what sworn testimony says he did--then it doesn't matter whether there is any kind of "deep state" that does not support Trump. It doesn't matter if this was some kind of "payback" for defeating Hillary. If he did those things, Trump is guilty of a crime. That crime is described in section 30121 of Title 52 of the United States Code.
The testimony is not about what deep state actors did behind the scenes. The testimony is about what President Trump and Rudy Giuliani and others were doing behind the scenes. If that testimony is true--and so far it is uncontradicted and taken under oath--then Trump is guilty of a crime.
If Trump was really the victim of a deep state conspiracy, he and his staff have every opportunity to take the stand and swear under oath that those facts are wrong. But I can't help but point out that Trump has done everything he can NOT to allow even his staunchest supporters to testify.

No, it's Trump trying to turn a foreign secret service on a U.S. citizen for personal profit. Trump is indefensible. Time to plead "guilty".
