Dems Quote Constitution, Use Term ‘Bribery’

“I am saying what the president has admitted to and said it’s perfect — it’s perfectly wrong. It’s bribery. … The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into the elections. That’s bribery.”
