THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT
Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens
That pressure risked corrupting U.S. elections
Those actions constitute a “quid pro quo”
Those actions fit “abuses” cited by the framers as impeachable
Trump obstructed the investigation

THE CASE AGAINST IMPEACHMENT
Trump’s behavior “does not fit” definition for high crimes and misdemeanors
Record of Trump-Zelenskiy call doesn’t show abuse of power, obstruction
Democrats’ impeachment effort is strictly political
Impeachment is designed to weaken Trump in 2020
