House Republicans will reportedly cite President Donald Trump’s “state of mind” in defense of his controversial call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, according to a Congressional memo to Republicans.
“To appropriately understand the events in question — and most importantly, assess the President’s state of mind during his interaction with President Zelensky — context is necessary,” the memo declared. “This context shows that President Trump has a deep-seated, genuine, and reasonable skepticism of Ukraine and US. taxpayer-funded foreign aid, independent of and preceding any mention of potential investigations of Ukraine’s interference in the 2016 elections or Hunter Biden’s involvement with Burisma, a notoriously corrupt company.”
The memo concluded that “the evidence gathered to date does not support the Democrat allegation that President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate the President’s political rivals for his benefit in the 2020 presidential campaign. The evidence gathered does not establish an impeachable offense.”
As noted by Axios, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) has also questioned whether President Trump had a “culpable state of mind.”
“To me, it all turns on intent, motive… Did the president have a culpable state of mind?” he asked several weeks ago.
