The proceedings were prompted by his phone call asking Ukraine for dirt on potential 2020 presidential rival Joe Biden. But if Trump knows that’s the reason for the impeachment probe, he didn’t let it show.

No, for welcoming foreign interference in an election.
Bringing about genocide and using the office to enrich yourself are in the queue.
