The Constitution only lists two specific high crimes for a president in regard to the office.

Treason and Bribery.

This is bribery clear as day.

Ukraine, if you want the US $400 mil of aid, go on national TV and say "Corruption" and "Biden". Toss in "Clinton" and "DNC" for bonus points.

Pretty sure that legally it would be considered extortion, not bribery.

Because bribery and extortion have many elements in common, it is easy to misconstrue one as the other, but important not to. Both are criminal offenses and both involve the exchange of money, property, or services, but the manner in which the exchange occurs and the parties involved often vary depending upon the nature of the crime. A charge of extortion, for instance, need not involve public officials to be made, whereas bribery as a criminal offense involves those employed by the Government, mostly, along with certain clear provisions for cases of bribery in business.

Foreign aid always comes with a catch I’d imagine

That’s what that one guy said in the press conference basically

Like when trump said Putin isn’t the only killer and it was like gasp except since it’s true the gasps were a little more like sighs

Very true.

This 'catch' went too far.
Which is why Bolton referred to it as a drug deal.

Did you read the statement Bolton's lawyer put out yesterday?
Bullets are being sweat.

yea you're right I was only trying to keep the bar high cause OH said the whole exortion deal with Ukraine isn't a scandal, so you bringing up something that was less of a scandal caused me to dismiss its scandalousness. Although I must insist that the Ukraine scandal makes your scandal look like a 2 bit whore on Hollywood Blvd.
