Here’s what you need to know to understand the Trump/Ukraine scandal
House Democrats have finally crossed the rubicon to a formal impeachment process, based on a stunning admission from President Trump that he asked a foreign government to dig up dirt on a political rival. And we now have proof of that.
What did Trump do that caused Democrats to finally pull the trigger on the impeachment process?
He asked a foreign government to dig up dirt on his political rival – In this case, Joe Biden. That is an abuse of power of his office and enough to get Nancy Pelosi to initiate formal impeachment proceedings against him.
According to a call summary released by the White House, on July 25, President Trump asked the new Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, to look into false allegations that Joe Biden stopped Ukraine from prosecuting his son. Let me back up and identify all the players here. We’re talking about 2015 and 2016, when Joe Biden was still Vice President. His son, Hunter Biden, was serving on the board of a Ukrainian oil and gas company called Burisma. The prosecutor-general of Ukraine at the time was a man named Viktor Shokin, and he was investigating Burisma. But he was not investigating Hunter Biden specifically, and he definitely wasn’t investigating Joe Biden. So point number one: Trump’s claims are wrong. He and Rudy Giuliani have been trying to gin up this fake story to make Biden and his family look bad, even more so since Biden kicked off his 2020 campaign. But Ukrainian prosecutors have said as recently as May 2019 that quote “they had no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden or his son.” So keep this in mind when you’re hearing about ‘Ukraine’s investigation into the Bidens’ – that investigation never existed. A more accurate way of saying it is that Trump is trying to fabricate an investigation into the Bidens.

US govt and US media calling other countries corrupt is an oxymoron. Wall Street and big corp has so much power and control over the Congress that they have made anything corrupt legal. And foreign aid Ukraine desperately needs is also medical care and infrastructure costs that US citizens need more.
Biden has no right to intervene in Ukraine internal affairs and push for firing a prosecutor. Ukraine is supposed to be independent country, and not USA colony.
What’s sad is trump followers won’t understand anything in this video.
wow! what a clearly explained such a complicated scandal !!
POTUS 2020 !!!🥰💅 # walkaway
This is like “All the President’s Men” on crack 🤣🤣
"That claim is WHOLLY Wrong. Okay, so Shokin was investigating Burisma. VP JOE BIDEN and others were trying to get a UKRAINIAN president fired. "
Got it. Biden can meddle in the Ukrainian's affairs, but Trump can't. Don't get me wrong, I'm ready to vote the current racist resident of 1600 Penns Ave right out of office; I wasn't aware that we could tell another COUNTRY how to "do a good enough job" at managing ONE COMPANY. Seems a bit of a governmental overreach for a VP, so now I'm unclear on how a Potus did something (more) wrong than the VP. 🙎🙍
Thanks for clearing that up 🤓😱
Get him out!!
Trump is an embarrassment to the United States of America. The sooner he's kicked out of the White House, the better.
But did he delete emails though?
You people are ridiculous another waste of time and millions of Dollars you're not going impeach him we are down this road before it's not going to happen
yea, explained by the left without any bias or opinion of their own, just the facts right? f*ck outta here…
64 trump voters lol
Not even close to the worst part of this presidency, but imagine all the people across America realizing if this moron is president, they can run too!
How are you going to make this whole video & get the dollar amount wrong? It wasn't nearly $400 million to begin with – 45 added $140 million after the call. I would think this video would be one of the few places to not bury that particular lead. 🤨
RatpubliKKKans and trump as usual lying and projecting. They've already prepared a bunch of vids to mislead people and of course COMRADE trolls are posting hateful deceiving comments. Russia is still helping TRAITOR trump.
Great presentation, thank you
What a bunch of cherry-picked factoids to spin a story. I'm not American. I'm not pro-Trump, but this type of preaching to your choir with such bias is going to back fire…
Meanwhile in Saudi Arabia…..
Biden is on film telling a room full of people that he did EXACTLY what he is accused of…. bragging about it.
Why is Hunter Biden on the board of some Ukrainian gas company again?
So, what are they waiting for?
And then you've got idiots calling this fake news, defending a blatant abuse of power. Smh.
Let me see if I understand. The Democrats want to impeach a president for trying to expose a crime and then elect the person who committed the crime.
