Why exactly is it obvious that their focus is on Ukraine? This is a general impeachment, Trump has committed hundreds of crimes. And, "our committee's" job is to recommend charges to be included in the Articles of Impeachment.
The 5th Democratic Debate begins tonight at 6:00pm PST/9:00pm EST and PlanetPOV is hosting a live chat during the debate. Hope to see you here!
