As promised the White House has released the transcript of a phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The most damning thing might be his request that Ukraine look into foreign interference in the 2016 US Election.
Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t that what Democrats said they wanted for the past three years? To the exclusion of almost any other business?
As for the matter of Hunter Biden, his circumstances are still suspicious. As are then VP Biden’s, who, if the statements about the alleged behavior by Mr. Trump are any indication, are serious and should be investigated.
Which might be why Democrats are so upset that President Trump suggested it. Barely.
Sean Davis of The Federalist noted the transcript “shows that Trump mentioned Biden and his son only once, and that there was zero discussion whatsoever of connecting financial aid to an investigation of Hunter Biden’s controversial Ukrainian energy business or the prosecutor who was fired while investigating it.”
Not sure how that might be an impeachable offense and I suspect most American’s won’t see it either. They may even see Democrats objections as trying to obstruct that investigation.
And, as suggested this morning, Democrats did trip themselves into yet another trap of their own making.
