Re: From the closing paragraph of the article...

Look, withholding much needed and earlier promised support in order to get a certain result from an investigation (don't be a fool -a certain result is what's requested) is simple extortion. Extorting a foreign government, or in any other way getting help from a foreign government, to help destroying a national competing politician is illegal. End of.

All the other whataboutery you can think of is irrelevant. (The whistleblower was a Democrat.. Duhh..)
