Trump's approval rating is currently at 53%, higher than Obama's was at this point.
The American public doesn't want impeachment;
Obama did far worse than even the worst
A top Ukrainian official on Saturday defended President Trump's July phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, during which Trump reportedly urged authorities in Kiev to investigate dealings in the Eastern European county by the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.
“I know what the conversation was about and I think there was no pressure,” Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko told the Hromadske media outlet. "There was talk, conversations are different, leaders have the right to discuss any problems that exist. This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on many questions, sometimes requiring serious answers."
Zelenskiy's office has not commented on the allegations. Trump and Zelenskiy are expected to meet in person at the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week.

Is it true that Ukraine was contacting the wrong people at the DOJ? They were calling anti-Trump deep state DOJ people, trying to get Democrat dirt to them?
Kostiantyn Kulyk, deputy head of the Prosecutor General’s International Legal Cooperation Department, told me he and other senior law enforcement officials tried unsuccessfully since last year to get visas from the U.S. Embassy in Kiev to deliver their evidence to Washington.
“We were supposed to share this information during a working trip to the United States,” Kulyk told me in a wide-ranging interview. “However, the [U.S.] ambassador blocked us from obtaining a visa. She didn’t explicitly deny our visa, but also didn’t give it to us.”

The Trump administration has recalled the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine abruptly and ahead of her scheduled departure, after she became a target of political attacks by conservative media outlets and Donald Trump Jr. Democrats see her early departure under pressure as the unfair targeting of a career Foreign Service officer by Team Trump.

The Trump administration on Tuesday abruptly recalled its ambassador to Ukraine, creating a key diplomatic vacancy abroad and sparking outrage from critics who say the move was a “political hit job” and “completely undeserved.”
Although the specific cause of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch’s dismissal remains unclear, it came after sharp criticism of her work by conservative media outlets.
