By Thursday, the third day of the public impeachment inquiry, Democrats were claiming that U.S. military aid flowed to Ukraine on September 11, only because President Trump "got caught" in his alleged quid pro quo when a whistle-blower came forward.
But who got caught? Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House intelligence committee, asked in his opening statement. Democrats did, he explained:
Nunes noted that temporary holds on foreign aid happen "fairly frequently" for different reasons. "So how do we have an impeachable offense here when there is no actual misdeed and no one even claiming to be a victim?" he asked.
