This was not a violation of law that is an assault against our system of government. Holding up the money to Ukraine not only was a violation of law but it was done to interfere in the upcoming 2020 election.

That's the difference in a crime vs a crime that is impeachable.

Driving 5 mph over the speed limit vs 50 mph over the limit are both crimes but handled VERY differently
Even if what Trump did broke zero laws he should still be impeached for it. He tried to rig his own re-election!

Can't. The GOP base loves Trump in a way that defies reason. The silver tongued devil stole them away. So long as they're under Trump's spell then the GOP is under his thumb. There's also the minor matter that they get what they want from Trump & also that Pence would be a sure loser in 2020.

Trump? He's plumbing the depths of GOP moral depravity & hasn't hit bottom yet.
What "silver tongued devil" are you talking about? Trump is barely coherent.

Trump has a long history of salesman speak, bullshit artist lingo, and grifter behavior. Sure, someone objective may read / watch Trump stumble through his speaking and be all "wtf", but to the devout...he's just trolling the libtards with his bigly brain and be best words.

Need to beat your head against the wall several more times.
Decades of GOP propaganda & disinformation softened their brains to the point that Trump looked good to them. They're a proud & stubborn lot, too, so it's really hard for them to even admit to themselves that they might have made a mistake voting for Trump, particularly when sources they trust tell 'em how great it is. Rush. Hannity. Ingraham. Pirro. Dobbs. Rudy. DiGenova. On and on. There's a lot of money being made keeping their heads nicely fucked up & voting for more trickledown.

Crime does not happen apparently with Barr in charge. Sargent Shultz knows more than Barr.
