a rather critical op-ed piece from newsmax, which I find surprising
Trump’s Impeachment Defense Undermines Case for Re-Election
The best defense of President Donald Trump on the first day of the U.S. House’s public impeachment hearings came from Rep. Elise Stefanik, Rep.- N.Y.
She cited “the two most important facts” for Americans trying to understand the inquiry into the president withholding military assistance to Ukraine unless it investigated former Vice President Joe Biden, “No. 1, Ukraine received the aid,” she said. “No. 2, there was in fact no investigation into Biden.”
Stefanik’s defense is shrewd because it sidesteps Trump’s hand-waving and gaslighting.
It is also dangerous because it reveals Trump’s weakness as a leader.
