UPDATE: Transcript released

Less than 2 minute read

September 25, 2019

UPDATE: At this writing, the “transcript” of the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was just released (technically, it’s not a verbatim transcript, but based on "notes and recollections" of those listening and memorializing the call.) 

It shows that Trump did bring up Ukraine looking into the firing of the prosecutor that Joe Biden was bragging about arranging, but as part of a wider discussion of cleaning up Ukrainian corruption.  He also referred to Crowdstrike, which I assume was part of asking the Ukrainian leader to help look into the 2016 Russian hacking of the DNC server (I thought the Democrats wanted Trump to do more to block Russian interference in our elections?)  

Despite all the accusations of Trump threatening to withhold aid from Ukraine if they didn’t investigate Biden, nothing like that appears in the transcript. Zelensky even thanks Trump for all his support for Ukraine.  You can read it all for yourself here:

I’m not an attorney, so I’ll leave the legal analysis to the experts.  But at first layman’s glance, it sounds as if Trump is urging Ukraine to clean up its infamous corruption, which unfortunately included well-known accusations involving our former Vice President and his son that Joe Biden publicly bragged about.  As Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the US, Trump would be negligent if he knew about such allegations of abuse of power by a top US official and did nothing about them, but I guess the fact that Biden is a Democrat running for President now makes him immune from all laws (precedent established 2016.) 

And at first glance at the reactions, I predict that those who support Trump will say, “That’s all there is?” while his political opponents will scream, “We’ve got him now! BURN HIM!!”  In short, it will be another typical Wednesday like most others since November 2016. 

PS – One other point worth noting: Zelensky is effusive in his praise of Trump, saying he learned how to win elections and drain Ukraine's own corrupt swamp by watching Trump. I actually believe that, more than anything, is why the Democrats and the DC swamp dwellers are so desperate to get rid of Trump by any means possible.  He’s a worldwide existential threat to entrenched corrupt elitists everywhere.

    I believe there should be an investigation, but Joe Biden and his son should be the center of this investigation. I have to scrape up five dollars to buy a pound of chop meat that Hass to last me three days, but the vice presidents son walks away with $1 million and 50,000 a month. Yes I do want A investigation.

    The Democrats need to tend to the business of this country instead of trying get our duly elected president thrown out of office. SHAMEFUL CARRYINGS ON!!!!!!!

    The sad part is that there need not be a “That’s all there is?” nor a “We’ve got him now! BURN HIM!!”. Those who espouse those viewpoints have no understanding or confidence in the constitution and tradition that are designed to exactly deal with situations like this in the least partisan way possible. Let the process work. I know that being brown and Jewish will not help my argument with your followers, but follow my logic.

    It is depressing to watch, see and hear all the demos are doing. We all have to pray and encourage people to vote and vote Republican. Judicial Watch has done so much, but when is going to make illegal actions accountable and action taken for prosecution. Praying

    You it the nail on the head with all of the above! Can't they get we are about to regurgitate? Seriously, we are sick of their antics....and everything they come with they have themselves have done. Maybe they have lost their collective minds once and for all.

    Amazing. After yesterday's every other word in the news was impeach, impeach. The evening news not touching the clearing of Trump & pointing fingers at Biden. Once again, lying by omission today. All lies yesterday. I don't know about anyone else, gonna need wadders to get thru all the Democrat lies. Tired of them.

    This time, the Democrats have gone too far. Although the market took a brief dive, it did not produce the effect they were looking for and yet they still keep making spurious and false statements the the media supports. What can we do to keep them from destroying the presidency and our country?

  • Jerry Cantrell

    It is about time they clean out the house!! They has wasted tax payers money for three years on a witch hunt! And have committed treason and subversion!!
