Many Democrats are cock-a-hoop over the idea of impeaching Trump. They would bed down with the Devil just to get rid of the boor in the White House. But unless really damning information emerges regarding Trump's efforts to dig up dirt on his presumptive presidential rival, Joe Biden, it looks so far as if Trump may survive this latest scandal. Unless, of course, the mounting pressure on him seriously affects his health. He is showing clear signs of stress.
In a recorded 25 July phone call, Trump, a former reality TV star, asked Ukraine's new president, Volodymyr Zelensky, a former TV comedy star, to dig up dirt on Joe Biden's son, Hunter. Trump's request came after a fawning Zelensky, who called Trump 'teacher', asked for more US anti-tank missiles.
