Fuzz,
You might notice a common theme. 

You beat the drum on Benghazi and were proven wrong. 
You beat the drum on Kavanaugh and were proven wrong. 
You beat the drum (pun intended) on the Covington Boys and were proven wrong and lastly you beat the drum on Trump asking GA to find fraud and you have now been proven wrong yet again.

I do give you credit, I don’t recall that you ever defended Obama for weaponzing the IRS or for sending billions to Iran.

Tell me what Trump said was illegal or unethical?
 
Placing the phone call itself to exert any remote pressure at all is an extraordinary breach of ethics.  It's amazing what Trump has normalized.  

Trump disagreed with the people he was talking to and he asked them to look into it.

LOL.  They were already "looking into it" - that wasn't he purpose of the call at all.  In fact, I'd call that an outright lie on your part.  He had no basis for disagreement.  All he was doing was trying to coerce them into complying with the conspiracy theories that were floating around on twitter.  

There were no threats

Trump said, "you know what they did and you're not reporting it."  That's an unmistakable accusation of fraud (which is illegal).  

Trump said, "that's a criminal offense."  That's pointing out the severity of his accusation of fraud.

Trump goes on to say, "and you can't let that happen.  That's a big risk to you."  That's pointing out that perpetrators of fraud are subject to criminal prosecution.  That's an unmistakable threat that you're not allowing yourself to hear.  

Now I can't spoon-feed reality to you any better than that Roady.  You're either sane or you aren't.  

all I heard was request to look into fraud election claims.
 
You only hear what you want to hear - that's the problem.  Do you think Raffensperger was just sitting around bored in his office and needed Trump to prompt him to do his job?  Is that where your delusion has taken you?

lol....Are you really that desperate to pin something on Trump? Get a grip snowflake!!! If that's a crime then you need to call for impeachment for every politician in Washington starting with Biden.
I won't even bother to comment on the rest of your patently absurd response as it's not worthy of taking the time.
Face it.....you step on your Johnson believing another lie  out of the Washington Post and have now spent an entire day trying to CYOA....funny really if it wasn't so pathetic.

Coerce them with what exactly?

"Trump said, "you know what they did and you're not reporting it."  That's an unmistakable accusation of fraud (which is illegal)."

Making an accusation of fraud is illegal?  How so?

"Trump said, "that's a criminal offense."  That's pointing out the severity of his accusation of fraud."

Election fraud is a criminal offense, is it not?

"Trump goes on to say, "and you can't let that happen.  That's a big risk to you."  That's pointing out that perpetrators of fraud are subject to criminal prosecution.  That's an unmistakable threat that you're not allowing yourself to hear."

Perpetrators of fraud are subject to criminal prosecution, are they not?

As I've pointed out numerous times, your threshold for criminality differs rather dramatically depending on whether the subject is Trump or some Dim.   You have 2 standards, just like the media.   

You keep asking for examples of your mendacity, we keep providing them, and you keep denying the truth.   That's rather strange behavior for someone that describes themselves as a seeker of the truth.

Pretty wild that Democrats can use unsourced, claimed to be verified information to impeach a President and have to face no consequences when the charges turn out to be lies.

You asked me "coerce them with what?"  I answered you.  Trump attempted to coerce them with threats of legal consequences if they didn't comply.  How dense does one have to be not to see that?

Obama didn't call the lead investigator of the Benghazi investigation and beg, pressure and ultimately threaten him with legal consequences if he didn't get his desired outcome.  

Ultimately, there was a finding of "no wrong-doing" after repeated investigations, so all's well that ends well (at least for those of us who live in the real world).
