    Little Biden is a private citizen, not a gov't employee.

    Yet another fake argument. If you are asking what planet we earthlings are from, that does explain quite a bit. Here on planet Earth, Vice President Biden received no bribes from Ukraine.

    How do we set up a system in which every action a president takes, benefits every citizen except him?

    translation: I lack IQ to respond substantively to OP or anything else, and yet I want to see Trump gone to make way for the Green New Deal Great Depression.

    'It shall be unlawful for a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value … in connection with a federal, state or local election (52 USC 30121).' Providing opposition research, as the president calls it, is a valuable contribution to a campaign.Jun 13, 2019

    It is an abuse of power for the President to request campaign assistance from a foreign government in the form of an investigation against his domestic political rival while he simultaneously and unilaterally hold up hundreds of millions in military aid and a requested meeting. It is also an obstruction of justice to then try and hide, lie about, and obstruct the investigation.

    The emolument clause refers to elected officials taking money or other assets in exchange for their actions in government.

    Biden's son wasn't in government. And, VP Biden was clearly focused on carrying out the WILL OF CONGRESS (including both parties) in Ukraine.

    Trump IS in government. Directing America to act in his personal interest is an impeachable offense.

    So is his work to have the USA coerce other governments attack his own political rivals.

    Because there is no evidence. Wishful thinking isn't evidence. I hate to break it to you. If you really want to open up the can of worms where anyone can say anything about anyone else that they want and no evidence matters, we simply must blindly accept it as true, go ahead. According to that "logic," Trump is a mass murderer.

    Can I ask where you are from James? Your grammar and punctuation suggests a lack of control with the English language.
