In case you don't know, Barr is currently investigating the origins of the Russia probe (many criminal charges are expected, one leaked out today already). Barr asked Trump to ask Zelensky for his help in this matter. It's as simple as that.

You are equivocating all over the place, partly because you don't understand the context and back-story.
I'll say it again, not one single witness said that Trump told him or her that aid was contingent on "digging up dirt on Biden". That is what the Democrats claimed, and that is what they did not prove.
An account with 5 posts, all in Trump-related threads, ignored everything Trump actually said in the call, and then lists things Trump never said. While claiming I'm the one who doesn't understand.
Trump didn't say a single word about what you've been stating in the transcript. Not that it matters even if he did. Because he specifically told Zelenski he wanted him to help Barr investigate the Bidens.
As for whichever of the 500 conspiracy theories tied to Crowdstrike and the server you think Trump was refering to, that's on you.
Trump thinks that Crowdstrike is Ukraine-based , but it is not. It is based in Sunnyvale, California, and has a big office in Arlington, Virginia.
Trump also thinks there's a missing server, but there apparently is not.
Or maybe he's referring to the theory that the DNC framed Russia for the election interference in 2016, and that Biden covered it up with the help of Ukraine officials.
Either way, it doesn't matter.
What matters is that he specified he wanted Zelenski to help Barr investigation the Bidens.
And that 400 million in aid was withheld for months until the day after the house demanded the acting DNI to hand over the whistle blower complaint.
Your excuse here is that these are just gigantic coincidences that anyone would swallow, and that "That's a nice daughter you have there. It'd be a shame if something happened to her", means not a single witness heard a threat aimed at the child.
