Legal: Yes, diplomats and governments negotiate (quid pro quo) to acquire policies favorable to their countries and their citizens.
Illegal: What the President and his administration were negotiating was to get dirt on a political candidate, not for the American people; but for the President individually as a candidate for President. That is Quid Pro Quo that is illegal, unconstitutional, immoral and probably fatening.
If this court continues to ignore precedent, the Supreme Court will lose all credibility and will become meaningless just like Congress and the Department of Justice. We will become what the founding fathers wrote desperately to avoid, a monarchy controlled by foreign government influence.
