Punished, as in removed from office, correct?

And yes this is in fact a political matter. Being as the president may have violated a written reason in the Constitution he should be removed from office. How is that not political
Political bias.

That is a non-answer.

He either did it or he did not.
Correct. We will see what come of it. I think all that will turn up is stuff in the grey area, and depending on the side of the isle you sit, will determine your view. I just think Trump is to smart to leave a true smoking gun.

It fitting that none of his supporters have addressed the merits of the actual case:

Instead whattaboutism, its a conspiracy and it isn't a problem.

If it happened, what are your positions?
We will see the unredacted transcript tomorrow. It sounds as if this whole thing is a nothing burger. No clear wrong doing just like the Russia investigation.

The conservative spin on this is incredible. Let’s ignore the corruption and abuse of power being actively conducted by the President of the United States. And instead focus on what the son of Joe Biden might have done a decade ago.

Thank you. Look, I’m fine with saying let’s investigate corruption on the Dem side....plenty of it to root out. It’s just hard to see people care so much about Bidens son and not give two shits about corruption from the guy sitting in the Oval Office.

People claiming they know how this will play out and how it will effect the election remind me of the confidence people had going into 2016. There will be many news cycles between now and the impeachment vote, let alone the election. I think this is the right move by the Dems because ultimately Trump is unfit for office and this is one of many clear violations. Hold him accountable as much as you can, even if the Senate won't do shit. What kind of precedent does it set to say a president is simply above the law unless we vote them out?

Comparing Bill Clinton in 1998 and his blow job perjury impeachment to this? Makes very little sense. And while the GOP got hurt in the midterms, it wasn't as if the impeachment catapulted Gore ahead of Bush. Trump has far lower approval ratings despite a stable economy. The upcoming election is also not a midterm, but I don't know if that helps or hurts the situation for the Dems.

It’s hard to tell if there is merit, when there is so much political bias.
I mean, Giuliani admitted it on TV. And so did Trump. Are they biased against themselves?

Biden's not even in office, he's merely the current frontrunner for a primary process where no votes have been cast. This is a question about Trump's behavior and that alone. Arguing the merits of Biden or his son's behavior is meaningless.

Chuck Todd makes a great point here. Why go to Ukraine, a country Trump's admin claims they do not trust given allegations of corruption, to investigate a deal with Biden instead of the FBI if it was a true concern and not just a political hit job?

Trump said he'd take foreign help again, Rudy announced he was gonna go pressure Ukraine (then called it off publicly then went I guess?), and now here we are...

The election is not the proper way to handle a POTUS that has clearly violated the law.

If this form of government is to stay credible, and Trump did what they say he did, it needs to be done.

If the GOP lets him get away with it it is time to start considering a new constitution.

You know Con Law and you know what I am saying is true.
Con law was so last year.

Quite honestly I have not paid attention to this new situation at all though, so I don't really have much of a response.

To catch you up real quick the personal lawyer of the president stated on national television that the US president tried to bribe the president of the Ukraine for dirt on Joe biden's son.

Meanwhile there's a whistleblower report (presumably what this is about) which was supposed to have been turned over to Congress within 48 hours of it being reported. Being as it was review and deemed relevant and urgent. The White House has blocked the release of that report. Which they have no legal means to do.

All told The whistleblower report talks about what was said over the phone to the Ukraine president.
