    If "Quid Prod Quo" is Illegal, Then EVERY Member of Congress Belongs Behind Bars

    A fancy Latin term is being used by democrats to create another false narrative because they have nothing else better to do to win in 2020.

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-11-...hind-bars.html

    The United States is a very rich, very powerful country, and we provide a lot of money to foreign governments for a variety of purposes. But mostly, we give it in exchange for something. We don’t just hand out money for the heck of it.
    Democrats and the media are permanently damaging the president’s constitutional authorities

    Administrations since the founding of our country have done this — but suddenly, because it’s President Trump and the Swamp wants to get rid of him any way it can, such ‘quid pro quo’ arrangements are wrong.

    As noted by Human Events:


    Horse trading is the oxygen of politics; it is how politicians are persuaded to care about things that otherwise would not make their radar. Not only does it happen all the time, but it is a core feature of our political system; representative government relies on this kind of political trading to ensure a plurality of interests and needs are satisfied.


    Not only do such arrangements happen between the U.S. and other governments, but lawmakers make quid pro quo agreements all the time as well. ‘I’ll sponsor your bill if you sponsor mine.’ Etc.


    However, the media and Democrats are gaslighting the country by claiming that a) Trump engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukraine (when he clearly didn’t) and b) such arrangements are improper.

    Did President Trump end the war in Syria with a QPQ?

    Was the death of Baghdadi the result of a QPQ?

    I think there are good Quid Pro Quos and bad Quid Pro Quos.

    What Biden did as Vice President was an example of a bad Quid Pro Quo.

    His son, Hunter Biden was under investigation by a Ukraine prosecutor.

    Joe Biden publicly stated he had that prosecutor fired as Vice President.

    They are improper. And everybody does it to a certain extent, although the circumstances vary.

    That's just one of many reason why they should all be voted out...and term limits instituted.

    Maybe kicking Trump to the curb over quid pro quo will have a more desirable outcome than not holding the Sexual Predator in the Oval Office responsible 20 years ago when the opportunity presented itself.

    It always comes back to clinton.

    Why should trumps current mistakes be given a pass because of past mistakes made on clinton?

    Is precedent more important? Does trumps misdeeds not matter because of the past? Or should we work to reign in presidential misdeeds better? And learn from our mistakes?

    A quid pro quo isn't necessarily improper or illegal in and of itself.

    Using federal aid (read: American taxpayer money) as a quid pro quo to force a foreign government to investigate a political rival for personal gain is improper, unethical, probably illegal and definitely an impeachable offense.

    It's absolutely absurd to say "well, this quid pro quo isn't bad because most quid pro quos are ok!"

    Maybe you should read what I wrote, not what you want to see.

    I didn't say he should be given a pass, unless that's what you mistakenly interpret being 'kicked to the curb' as representing.

    I am sure there was a GOOD reason the Republican Senate voted in NON favor of impeaching Clinton for his shenanigans...

    That would mean then they would have to hold their own accountable ...and well we know how that goes..

    I personally don't want to See trump get impeached ... Vote his ass out.
