This "would look like a classic quid pro quo." Myers said before revealing that Hanit was "trying out a new, even dumber defense" for the president. He summed it up: "This is not a crime, because that's exactly what Trump is saying."

" Is that your argument ?! "Myers asked in disbelief. "That saying 'do us a favor' to a foreign leader is equivalent to saying 'you know?' "for us service" the way the Valley Girls say "like" or how Jesse Pinkman says "bitch" all the time. That doesn't mean he's a criminal, that's what he says. "
