No, I absolutely disagree with this “both sides are the same” nonsense. The investigations into Trump aren’t motivated by partisan hackery. They’re motivated by the very clear fact that Trump has committed crimes worthy of impeachment.

The fact that there are two opposing views on the Trump/Ukraine story doesn’t mean the truth lies somewhere in the middle, or that this is just people playing politics. The evidence of that is in the fact that the story has finally gotten several Republican officials to sit up and say, hey, this is over the line.

Hanson’s take is just garbage.

“any president has a perfect right to tell a foreign head of state and recipient of major U.S. aid that his corruption-plagued country has played a destabilizing but still murky role in recent American elections and in scandals that have affected the American people”

Yeah, that’s kinda what Biden did, at the request of Obama and other world leaders.

The difference is that Trump’s request wasn’t actually about getting to the bottom of corruption. We know this because Trump has also been asking other foreign leaders to dig up dirt on Warren, and he can’t hand-wave that away as a corruption scandal.
