IN FAIRNESS TO DONALD....:

Here's why Trump's Ukraine misdeeds are a big (impeachable) deal (Quin Hillyer, September 23, 2019, Washington Examiner)

Based simply on what President Trump has admitted to, combined with one piece of as-yet-uncontradicted reporting, Trump has committed impeachable offenses in his dealings with Ukraine.

To understand why, let's do something that should be second-nature, especially to journalists, but which very few people practice anymore: Let's analyze the situation while removing all names and all partisan and ideological affiliations. Let's also stipulate that the targets of the president's interest (in this case Hunter and Joe Biden) are guilty as sin. (They probably are not guilty of criminal wrongdoing, but let's assume they are.)

We know, because (1) the president said so this weekend and (2) an uncontradicted Wall Street Journal report detailed the intensity with which the president did it, that the president of the United States urged a foreign leader to investigate U.S. citizens who are not under U.S. investigation and who are not fugitives from U.S. justice. 

...Bill weld was wrong about this being treason, because Ukraine is an ally.  The collusion with Putin over sanctions was treason.
