On Tuesday, Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released their impeachment report, arguing that President Trump deliberately and repeatedly abused the power of his office for his personal political benefit through his demands towards Ukraine.
But while Chairman Adam Schiff and his allies believe the evidence of impeachable offenses is overwhelming, former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy sees things much differently.
Author of “Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig An Election and Destroy a Presidency,” McCarthy explains why he is underwhelmed by the impeachment report.
Democrats argue that the facts everyone agrees on – such as the details of the Trump-Zelensky phone call – ought to be enough to warrant Trump’s removal from office. McCarthy explains why he disagrees with that too.
And as the rhetoric flies about why Ukraine did and did not do during the 2016 campaign, McCarthy separates which allegations about Ukrainian interference are absurd and what actually happened based on the best evidence available.
