Democratic House impeachment managers have repeatedly told senators this week that President Trump endangered the country and compromised its national security.

That’s a transparent lie — and with its endless repetition, the partisan falsehood is being transformed into a big lie.

The pretext for this claim is that the withholding of U.S. military assistance from Ukraine for a few weeks imperiled our nation. While providing the Ukrainians with the means to defend themselves against Russian aggression is a good thing to do, refraining from doing so obviously would not jeopardize America’s security, let alone be an impeachable offense.

After all, Barack Obama refused to do it throughout his presidency.

The case could be made that many of those accusing Donald Trump of compromising our national security have actually serially done so themselves. His coming acquittal should put the spotlight on their misdeeds.
