Could a Call With Ukraine Make Trump Impeachable?

This past week, President Trump has been in hot water for his interactions with Ukraine. President Trump and the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, were discussing Zelensky’s recent presidential victory over the phone. President Trump congratulated Zelensky, while Zelensky accepted the praise. Zelensky attributed his success to some traits that he adapted from President Trump’s presidency and campaign, as well as President Trump telling Zelensky that the U.S. does more for Ukraine than most European nations such as Germany. The conversation then turned to Trump trying to get the investigation on Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, re-opened. 

Speculation about what the call meant began among news organizations across the country. Democratic organizations such as MSNBC and NBC interpreted it as Trump trying to bring up dirt on the Biden family. On their television programs, they even use elusive language to confuse viewers and make what Trump said seem worse. A few of these programs usually do this by bringing things up that almost have nothing to do with the situation, such as one news station who brought up Beau Biden–Joe Biden’s other son who died of a brain tumor– even though it has nothing to do with the story. This makes it seem like Trump is going after Biden’s dead son, instead of trying to open up an investigation on Biden’s living son. Other Republican sources, such as Fox News, didn’t voice their opinion, instead sharing documents and quoting what other people said (which is uncommon for these sources, who usually side with Trump or defend him).

The entire situation has now been considered something so bad, Trump can be impeached over it. The reasoning? Some sources say its because he is interfering with the presidential election by using a foreign power, while others say it’s because he is abusing presidential powers and essentially threatening Ukraine into reopening the case on Hunter Biden. More is still coming out on this, and the site will be updated accordingly.
