    It wasn't an attempt. Trump wanted to do it, his advisors told him it was illegal, and it ultimately never happened.

    All you have to do is make the offer to bribe a cop for it to be a crime

    Of course he got caught.

    He didn't release the funds until after the story broke.
    Don't believe something just because you want to.

    No. It's more like he wanted to rob a bank, was told it was illegal to rob banks, and he never attempted to rob the bank. He wanted to withhold aid and his advisors told him it was illegal so the aid was given.

    You really can't expect anyone to fall for that narrative.

    He released the funds when his advisors told him it was illegal. That's why presidents have advisors.

    He only released the funds after the story broke.

    You are asking people to give credence to a narrative that stretches beyond believability.

    And you can't really expect the Senate Republicans to fall for your narrative. I read today that there will probably be at least three Democrats in the Senate who don't vote against Trump. If you can't even get 100% of the Democrat's vote how do you expect to have 23 Republican defectors?

    He made the call and offered the bribe.

    Nope. It's more like someone wearing a wire, posing as a hit man, and catching someone on audio/video who wants that 'hit man' to murder somebody. The deed doesn't have to actually go down for the solicitor to be charged with a felony.
