The closing comment from Democratic witness Daniel Goldman was simple and elegant:
“The president’s scheme is actually quite simple. And the facts are not seriously in dispute.
“First, that President Trump directed a scheme to pressure Ukraine into opening two investigations that would benefit his 2020 reelection campaign, and not US national interests.
“Second, President Trump used his official office and the official tools of US foreign policy, the withholding of an Oval Office meeting, and $391 million in security assistance, to pressure Ukraine into meeting his demands.
“Third, everyone was in the loop. His chief of staff, the secretary of state, and vice president.
“And fourth, despite the public discovery of this scheme which prompted the president to release the aid, he has not given up. He and his agents continue to solicit Ukrainian interference in our election, causing an imminent threat to our elections and our national security.”
And that’s really it: simple, straight forward, and under a minute. It was pretty brilliant.
