Ukraine Call Transcript Released

Share on GAB

The White House released the transcript of the phone call with Ukraine President Zelensky on Wednesday morning. Whether or not it will stave off the Democrat’s impeachment plans is probably debatable. It may just give them more twistable ideas.

The Democrats accused the President of “quid pro quo” in pressuring the Ukraine over military aid and investigating a political opponent. The transcript does not show any mention of quid pro quo. It does mentions asking for an investigation into Biden, but the conversation has no actual ‘pressure’ in it.

 

The whistleblower turns out to be represented by Clinton lawyers (surprise). It is also true that the person bringing the complaint did not have “firsthand knowledge” of the  conversation. The White House is working to release that complaint as soon as possible, according to news reports.

Fox noted:

But the Justice Department – in a new letter from the Office of Legal Counsel obtained by Fox News – is pushing back on the claim that the whistleblower brought out something of “urgent concern” that would have to be turned over to Congress.

“For the reasons set forth above, we conclude that the complaint submitted to the [intelligence community inspector general] does not involve an ‘urgent concern’…”  It adds: “As a result, the statute does not require that the [Director of National Intelligence] transmit the complaint to the intelligence committees.”

The DOJ opinion also said the intelligence community inspector general found “some indicia of an arguable political bias on the part of the complainant in favor of a rival political candidate,” but still said the allegations “appeared credible.” Fox News previously reported that, according to a source, the individual also did not have “firsthand knowledge” of the phone call.

Sources, meanwhile, said the original allegations spoke to a possible campaign finance violation, but the DOJ concluded that Trump’s request for an investigation did not qualify as a “thing of value” for his campaign – and therefore did not constitute a criminal violation.

All in all, after Nancy Pelosi caved to the left’s demands and claimed that they opened a formal impeachment investigation on Tuesday, the Democrats are now in full tilt attack mode. They’ll make things up and twist the facts. It really is a witch hunt.
