Trump says obligation to end corruption has nothing to do with politics…

This morning Trump is defending himself against enlisting the help of Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, saying it has nothing to do with politics:

He said something very similar last night…



Trump’s emphasis on ending corruption may be in response to text messages that have now come out regarding a visit by the Ukrainian president, in which diplomats suggested that a visit by Zelensky would happen assuming he agreed to “get to the bottom of what happened” in 2016:

 
As Philip Klein pointed out on Twitter, these texts were put out by Democrats hoping to make Trump look as bad as possible. But Volker’s testimony may put these in a different light:

He’s right. For example, we don’t know whether “get to the bottom of what happened” in 2016 meant Barr’s investigation or Biden’s corrupt actions.

And all that we’ve been hearing about Volker’s testimony yesterday was that it blew a big hole in the impeachment plans by Democrats. Plus Zelensky himself has said he didn’t feel any pressure from Trump to investigate Biden. So I would hold out before jumping to conclusions on all of this.
