Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has all but said on national television that Ukraine should investigate Joe Biden if it expected to get aid from the United States.

If offering U.S. dollars for action against a political rival isn’t impeachable, is anything? The whistleblower investigation apparently concerns this particular area of potential Trump corruption.

It’s hardly a shock. Trump acts corruptly in the open. As several have noted, a building with his name on it near the White House rakes in financial tribute from those hoping to win favor from the administration. He steers government business to other properties. To name but a couple of many examples.

Republicans in Congress remain silent. Where are you French Hill? John Boozman? Bruce Westerman? Steve Womack? Rick Crawford? Never mind Tom Cotton. He’s as demonstrably  deficient in principle as the president he enables.
