Some people say President Trump committed extortion against Ukraine. I challenge those who do to answer each of the following questions:
a) What did the extortion consist of?
b) When did it occur?
c) How was the extortion communicated to the Ukrainians?
d) What events occurred to show that the extortion was carried out?
If specific answers to all four of those questions cannot be given, then there was no extortion either in law or in fact.
It might be that John Bolton and President Trump discussed the idea of extortion, but talking and doing are two different things.
