U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday shrugged off talk about impeachment over a whistleblower allegation that he had asked his Ukrainian counterpart to launch an investigation that could damage Democratic political rival Joe Biden.

Asked how seriously he was taking the threat of impeachment by Congress, Trump said, “Not at all seriously.” Trump was speaking to reporters as he arrived at the U.N. General Assembly.

On Sunday, Trump acknowledged that he discussed Democratic presidential hopeful Biden and his son in a July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

The Democratic leader of a key congressional panel said on Sunday the pursuit of Trump’s impeachment may be the “only remedy” to the situation.

Trump on Monday accused Democrats of fomenting a politically motivated scandal, although he did not provide evidence. The allegation about the phone call stemmed from a classified whistleblower report in the U.S. intelligence community.

The Wall Street Journal and other news outlets on Friday said Trump repeatedly asked Zelenskiy to investigate the involvement of Biden’s son Hunter with a Ukrainian energy company.

Ha ha ha!

So informing y’all how to avoid causing confusion here by not mixing up IDs is worthy of down votes, is it?

OK… fools.

But, it’s OK for the Hillarrhoid to conspire with foreigners (including Russians) to create a false dossier to be used to smear Trump and justify wiretapping orders on the Trump Campaign? It’s OK for Democrats to ask for information from the Russians about Trump’s dealings about negotiations for a Trump Tower in Moscow? It’s Ok for Democrats to ask the Russians about Trump’s son in law’s dealings? Double standard anyone?

If Trump is so so cozy with the Russians then how come he doesn’t get Vlad to make a few of the more vocal leftist propagandist posing as news anchors disappear? I know I would.

So now it’s wrong for the president to find out if there was corruption going on in our government. What next. But it’s alright for the demwites to investigate him with false information. What’s wrong with this picture.
