President Trump held a press conference after the White House released the transcript of the phone call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where initial reports were that he pretty much shook down the Eastern European leader to investigate corruption charges against the son of former Vice President Joe Biden. There were quid pro quo allegations including Trump tying foreign aid to this investigation. Alas, it wasn’t any of that. The Ukrainians brought up Biden, Trump asked if they could help the Department of Justice’s probe into the origins of the Russia investigation, and there was nothing to the foreign aid angle. Yet, House Democrats still went along with their impeachment push because of this still ties into Trump-Russia collusion, a manufactured liberal media lie, and the Left’s desire to impeach Trump.
Literally within seconds of this, Trump repeated his false claim about what Al Green said about impeachment.— Aaron Blake (@AaronBlake) September 25, 2019
Democrats were elected to do this in 2018. This juncture was inevitable. The anti-Trump derangement syndrome is too powerful and its infected masses too great. Rep. Al Green (D-TX) gave away the playbook this summer when he said Democrats had to impeach this president because if they don’t, Trump will get re-elected. Yeah, that’s a no so subtle way of saying their 2020 field cannot beat Trump. The president referenced those remarks today, but writers for The Washington Post and Vox thought this was fake news. Sorry guys, there’s video. Green said this on MSNBC in July.

“I'm concerned that if we don't impeach this president, he will get re-elected,” said Green at the time.
Well, there’s your fact check, liberal media.
