Even with Bolton, case against Trump too small for impeachment

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Bolton’s accusation doesn’t change a key element of Trump’s defense — that he released the aid to Ukraine without getting the investigations he wanted. Even if one assumes it’s true the president outlined a quid pro quo to Bolton in August, he abandoned it in September and got zero benefit. The situation recalls the failed efforts by special counsel Robert Mueller to build an obstruction case against Trump in the Russia probe. There was testimony that Trump ordered aides to fire Mueller, but none did, and Trump didn’t pursue the matter. Even with Bolton, the basic facts in the Ukraine matter remain too light and too small to bear the enormous burden of removing an elected president.
