Here's a look at the most common GOP defense mechanisms, why the president should not be subject to impeachment investigations, and the facts about those arguments.
Some experts have noted that because the US is the most powerful ally of Ukraine, and much of the country's security ahead of Russia depends on support from the US. All the demands of President Trump are under some pressure.
The question of consideration is a contentious point for many Democrats to sue the President, as there is no doubt that Trump has asked a foreign government to investigate a political opponent during a legislature.
He's just investigating corruption
Republicans also tend to argue that Trump is simply trying to expose corruption by asking other countries to investigate the Bidens Trump talks about … things, they both do to eliminate corruption and drain the swamp. "On October 4, Senator Ron Johnson told reporters that Trump" is worried about corruption "and that he" says what President Trump says at par.
In the transcript In his telephone conversation with Zelensky, Trump never mentions "corruption" and focuses only on conspiracy theories around the DNC server, a US cyber security firm and the Biden.There is no evidence that could support one of the theories mentioned by Trump.
Trump has also defended his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and expressed his condolences to him for years and pro-Putin) former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich has worked.
Manafort is currently in jail for tax fraud.
The whistleblower only had second-hand knowledge of the call between Trump and Zelensky.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy tweeted on September 29 that one of the key facts was that "the whistleblower was not on the call."
Sen. Lindsey Graham told CBS that the whistleblower complaint was "only hearsay," arguing that "the whistleblower did not hear the phone call," then the complaint was "a hoax."
The Inspector General of Intelligence, Michael Atkinson, exposed this The assumption that the allegations against Trump were all based on hearsay, wrote in a letter dated September 30, that the whistleblower had "direct knowledge of certain alleged conduct," and this information helped the IG considerably to make a "credible" decision.
The law on reporting maladministration in the intelligence community does not prohibit persons with second-hand information from registering. In fact, the Inspector General has 14 days to investigate complaints about pressing concerns. Within these 14 days, the IG needs to find first hand information to determine if the urgent concerns are "credible" and forward them to the chain of command.  No matter that Trump has already released the main document of appeal: the call to Zelensky. And according to Mark Zaid, the lawyer representing the first whistleblower, a second whistleblower has provided first-hand information about some of the allegations in the original complaint.
It was a joke
Yet, this is the argument that Jordan and the Florida Senator, Marco Rubio, have made in recent days.
One of the main tactics that Republicans have applied in the defense of Trump is the attack on House Intel Adam Schiff, chairman of the espionage division.
Contact the whistleblower before the complaint is submitted, and advise them to contact the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community. Although Schiff was generally aware of the whistleblower's concerns, there are no indications that he had met with the whistleblower.
