Lindsey Graham demands that Democrats prove that Trump engaged in a "quid pro quo" deal with the Ukrainian president or they don't have an impeachable offense.
But 52 USC 30121(a)(1) & (a)(2) make it a violation of federal law even to simply "solicit" a thing of value from a foreign national in connection with any U.S. election. "Solicit" means to "ask for." The foreign national doesn't have to say a word or agree to anything "neither side has to exchange anything. If you just ask a foreign national for any kind of assistance relating to a U.S. election, you have violated 52 USC 30121(a)(1) & (a)(2).
Lindsey Graham is a lawyer. He knows this.
There is an old saying in the law: "If you have the law, argue the law. If you don't have the law, argue the facts. If you don't have the law or the facts, pound on the table."
Lindsay Graham is a table pounder. He is demanding that Democrats prove that Trump engaged in a "quid pro quo" " an exchange of something for something " or they don't have a violation of the law. As a lawyer, he knows his argument is fraudulent. He would not have to resort to such a table-pounding fraud of a tactic if he didn't know that Trump violated the law by simply asking Kelensky to investigate Biden for him.
