The White House was just rocked by shocking bribery charges — or the lack thereof. For weeks, Democrats have accused President Trump of “bribery,” but reality has hit them hard.
Earlier this week, Democrats publicly released their articles of impeachment against Trump, but one thing was clearly missing: Any mention of “bribery” whatsoever.
But this shouldn’t surprise anyone. In spite of the concerted effort of anti-Trump politicians and their allies in the mainstream media, evidence of their claim was non-existent. That’s the blunt truth.
