President Trump did nothing impeachable in his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during which Trump asked for Ukraine’s help in exposing possible influence peddling in the country by former vice president Joe Biden on behalf of his son, Hunter Biden.

Indeed, Trump did what a president should have done.

That conclusion comes from former federal prosecutor Bob Barr (shown), who, as a congressman, ran the effort to impeach Bill Clinton. Writing for The Daily Caller, Barr concluded that Trump was duty-bound to ask Zelensky for the probe.

Message for the Democrats and NeverTrump nuts in the Republican Party: Trump did nothing wrong.

Trump’s Call: We Need Your Help
The Trump-Zelensky call of July 25 became the object of the latest impeachment hysteria after the hearsay account of an anonymous CIA whistleblower surfaced. Written after the whistleblower consulted with the staff of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, which itself points to suspected wrongdoing, the account claimed that Trump sought “foreign interference” in the 2020 election.

That “foreign interference” was Trump asking Zelensky to probe the Biden-Burisma scandal that has shaken the presidential candidacy of former vice president Joe Biden. He was President Barack Obama’s point man on Ukraine. A month after a visit there in 2014, Biden’s son, Hunter, an irresponsible dope fiend kicked out of the Navy for cocaine use, landed on the board of Burisma Holdings, an energy company. Young Biden was, of course, unqualified for the position. In March 2016, when Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin, was investigating Burisma for corruption, Biden senior threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees from Ukraine if it didn’t fire the prosecutor. Shokin got the pink-slip.

Trump also told Zelensky he would order Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate Biden’s role in firing Shokin.

Such a probe might also uncover Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and its connection to the “Russian collusion” hoax. As John Solomon of the The Hill and Lee Smith of Real Clear Investigations have reported, a highly-paid consultant for the Democratic National Committee sought dirt on Trump from Ukraine’s embassy, and a Ukrainian legislator provided anti-Trump dirt to Fusion GPS, the Clinton presidential campaign front group that paid Christopher Steele, a British spy, to concoct his notorious dossier. Steele’s claims proved false, but the Clinton campaign retailed them to the media.

Another item related to the Ukraine-Clinton collusion story is the Obama administration’s effort, through the embassy in Ukraine, to kill a corruption probe into a supposed anti-corruption outfit backed by leftist hate-Trump billionaire George Soros, a major financial backer of the American radical Left.
