Wishing that were true doesn't make it so. In fact, there is no mention of a quid pro quo, or bribery in the complaint. Why you ask! Because none could be proven and, Democrats would be held to the same standard they're were trying to set. Yup, quid pro quo and bribery went quietly into the night.
so does that mean abuse of power and obstruction of justice can be proven? because that's what they're going with.

No, it happened. It was dropped as a term due to Republican whining.
All the "terms" the loony libs have floated have been dropped because the focus groups and polling have shown they don't get any traction. It really has nothing to do with what they can prove. It has everything to do with manipulating the court of public opinion in order to keep their cushy gravy train in the House. In fact the only people who actually think the Dems have something to impeach the Prez with are their most lockstepped of minions. Their effort to change what the Prez meant is the equivalent of Wild Willys "definition of the word if" dodge.

Prove your claims. All I see are slanderous opinions.

I'm sorry, but maybe you missed something. Trump would not allow members of his administration to who were subpoenaed to show up. That right there is obstruction of Congress and justice. That is impeachable all on its own. Do you deny Trump did that?

Also, if you think that's OK, then you agree you will have no power in the future when a Democrat is in the WH, yes or no?

Or is it really your end goal to break our system in the first place, so that you can get what you want? Be honest. Do you really not believe in our system of government in the first place?

Actually, believe it or not, Trump BROUGHT THAT UP: What if someday a Democrat is President?
I almost fell off the sofa. Trump actually had a "thought"--a projection--WOW. I suppose someone else TOLD him that, but hey--it counts.
The problem with our empty-headed friends on the Right is that THEY never *EVER* think in terms of "what if" because THAT kind of critical thinking, calculation, and extrapolation is simply beyond them. They "deal" in the here and now.
The whole concept of "what if" seems beyond their scope.

But Trump (for once) is right. Years from now a Democratic president MAY try the same abuse of office and the GOP will find themselves in a real pickle if the Democrats protect their president like the GOP is doing now.
Nawwww.....that couldn't happen, could it? LOL
