Mac Thornberry: I Didn’t Hear Any Evidence of ‘Abuse of Power’ in Trump’s Phone Call

‘There’s not anything that the president said in that phone call that’s different than he says in public all the time’

EXCERPT:

THORNBERRY: "Yeah, you’re right, the constitution is very specific — bribery, treason, high crimes and misdemeanors, which basically means felonies. So, that’s what you have to prove as a threshold question. The second question is under the circumstances do you believe that it’s good for the country to proceed with impeachment. I would suggest a couple of circumstances is relevant here, number one, there’s not anything that the president said in that phone call that’s different than he says in public all the time. So, is there some sort of abuse of power that rises to that threshold that is different than the American people have been hearing for three years? I don’t hear that.
