    Why should it be?

    Too hard to prove and not really relevant. It's illegal to ask a foreign power to interfere with an election, period.

    Because "quid pro quo" is not in itself an issue, it means "this for that".

    What is wrong is that the "quo" was personal gain for Trump, and THAT is illegal. So that is what he is changed with: abuse of power.

    Because Trump never asked or any quid pro quo.

    • Mobsters don't tell you that they'll vandalize your business unless you pay them "protection" money.  They just tell you that it'd be a shame if something bad happened to your place.  Somehow, someway, the message gets across, doesn't it?

    It is written in English so the world can understand it.

    In fairness to Donald Trump, who doesn't know what the term quid quo pro means. Democrats are keeping it simple for him.

    Might be because they had no witness that could prove that one.

      Nope--they FELT he was asking--they THOUGHT he was asking--they BELIEVED he was asking but when questioned if he actually did, none of them heard it.

    "Quid pro quo" is a Latin phrase.  Generally, American legislation tends to be written in English, not Latin.

    No exchange of any kind took place . That sort of blows the whole " Quid Pro Quo " narrative out of the water .

      Incorrect.  Trump's violation was solicitation. It doesn't matter if any exchange took place. Just ASKING a foreign gov't for election help is the offense according to US election laws.

  • You just like to ****post, don't you?  Quid pro quos aren't illegal.  Every time you purchase something from a store, you just engaged in a quid pro quo.  What is illegal, is bribery, and attempted bribery.  Bribery is one of the few offenses labeled specifically by the Constitution as being grave enough for an impeachment.  One would assume (since we assume that the framers would want us to have high-capacity, portable firearms, even though they didn't have anything like that in 1788) that attempted bribery would be just as bad.
