Republicans are making the argument on the Senate floor that it was all about "corruption"...

And the President had every right to ask a foreign country to fight "corruption". That is why he asked him to investigate the Bidens. Every single one of them seems to be resorting to that argument?

But it is a lie.

He did not care about "corruption", unless it was his own. He had every opportunity to investigate the Bidens. He could have gotten his personal Atty General to investigate, along with the FBI. But, he chose to let Rudy Giuliani do the "investigating".

Also, he never mentioned "corruption" in any of his phone calls or any of his speeches or any other place that is documented? It is a lie for Republican Senators to now fall back on the excuse that he was investigating the Bidens for corruption and nothing else.

1. They were given their talking points

by Moscow Mitch and they are using them.

This all makes me sick. I think I'll go to the gym and get fierce for a while.

2. When we win in November

The first thing we should do is open a corruption investigation into the GOP. Then we will see what corruption really looks like.

3. Even if it was true about the corruption (which it wasn't)

Trump had specific channels and conduits for him to (legally) ask Zelensky about the Bidens. His withholding of the aid was illegal and his attempts to get Zelensky to investigate the Bidens was wrong, especially his use of unappointed and unelected surrogates like Guiliani to facilitate the investigation.
