2. Defining Quid Pro Quo as This for that....


Which is often how it is made easier for people to understand the words ... makes it sound almost innocent. Which it is not. But said that way, it takes a lot of the feeling of it being a criminal act out of it.

Extortion is another matter. Most people have seen enough crime shows or movies to get that extortion is a crime. And not a trivial matter. The House majority need to continue using words like extortion, bribery and shake down so the average person gets it. Most of them already know tRump is a thug who gets other people to do his dirty work for him. Start using the words that will convey to them that this is no different than any other deal he is part of. Those that wanted him to run the country like he runs his business should be very happy because that is exactly what he did.
