Trump is doing everything for the country he loves... Mother Russia.
Trump and the Republicans are literally working in the interest of the Russian government by destabilizing Ukraine.
Can you envision Truman or Eisenhower after WWII saying, "How long could West Germany or Austria or Greece or Turkey last against Soviet aggression," and then refusing to give aid. It never happened until Trump came along. Neville Chamberlain but worse.
Trump said he wanted to keep aid to Ukraine frozen until he got help with inquiries he sought, John Bolton wrote in drafts of a new book.
Regardless of him talking about the Ambassador (and wether he is right or wrong about having had fired her) what is more important here is the fact that he clearly knows Lev Parnas.
Here we can see how he was taking his opinion on some matters that have to do with Ukraine pretty seriously. He did not hesitate to "get rid of her" and all it took was a "person he does not know" to bad mouth her.
Showing the public that he clearly knows Parnas is important since it proves he is lying about Ukraine and why would he lie about Ukraine?
This is just more evidence that this smells really bad for the the president.
Wether the people and the Senators acknowledge it... that's the question.
Anyone with even moderate geopolitical knowledge knows the answer to the question Trump asked. Not only is the recording evidence of corruption but it also highlights Trump's stupidity.
Trump has demonstrated the office of the Presidency is too dangerous to have all that power concentrated in one person.
The Senate is enabling him and he seems unstoppable.
Up till now, the assumption has been that the president is an upstanding citizen who holds America's and her allies interests as their first priority.
It's clear trump has hit his sweet spot where he's essentially untouchable and the Achille's heel of the Office laid bare.
