Donald Trump's impeachment was set in motion after a whistleblower report came to light complaining about the inappropriate nature of Trump's July 25th call with Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine.

During that call, Trump leveraged the threat of withholding U.S. aid funding to Ukraine in order to get an investigation into alleged corruption of Joe Biden and his son Hunter.


Many had fixated on one aspect of the timing of the call: it came just one day after Robert Mueller testified in front of Congress about his report, a testimony that was widely seen as a dud. Perhaps Trump felt emboldened and newly vindicated by Mueller's testimony.

But now we have a new clue as to what may have inspired the call to Zelensky: a Fox News poll that Trump had been touting that very morning:

What else was in that poll?

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
