Philbin: “The Evidence Just Doesn’t Stack Up” For Dems’ Impeachment

PATRICK PHILBIN: I think that we’ve gone through the evidence that makes it quite clear that—both with respect to a meeting with the President, a bilateral meeting, and with respect to the temporary pause to security assistance—the evidence just doesn’t stack up to show that President Trump linked either of those. Both took place: the meeting and the release of the aid without the Ukrainians doing anything, announcing or beginning any investigations. There’s nothing in the transcript linking them as a quid pro quo. The Ukrainians didn’t even know that there had been a temporary pause on the aid. I could go on with a list of points on that.
