7. But he keeps calling it that, doesn't he?

It's a summary, of course, but it includes the damning extortion language. Trump's not a very bright man, withal.

4. It will be one edited by his legal team

and Billy Barr

Otherwise, it will be just like his claim that he has tapes of Jim Comey in his office or photos of Comey kissing and hugging Mueller - farcically bad lies.

8. A second transcript? I thought the first one was the real one and

it was the "whole" transcript. Just a little sarcasm.

14. If I heard him correctly, it's about a second phone call to Zelinsky

More precisely, another phone call that took place before the one on July 25.

9. The Don: "I also want you to say there was no quid pro quo before I release the funds"

Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"
The Don: "Can I put that in my complete and accurate transcript of our perfect conversation ?"
Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"
The Don: "And inaudible?"
Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"
The Don: "We inaudible also inaudible."
Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"
The Don: "You won't mind making a campaign ad for me in which you tell everyone that this was a perfect phone call?"
Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"
The Don: "And inaudible?"
Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"
The Don: "Finally I'd like it if you went on Alex Jones show to tell everybody this is a complete and accurate transcript"
Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"
The Don: "Oh! And inaudible also inaudible?"
Zelensky: "Of course! No problem!"

13. Make him release the entire or hw WILL again redact/edit/manipulate it.

In fact, the Dems should subpoena the full transcript of the original MEMORANDUM "transcript" which was a highly redacted summary of the Ukrainian call, likely cutting out explicit references to quid pro quo. For weeks Trump and his supporters have either explicitly or implicitly represented the partial transcript as a full, word-for-word transcript which means, of course, the argument for subpoena is substantial.

An entire article in The New York Times (10.30.19) based on Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman's testimony makes this point directly:

"Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindmanthe top Ukraine expert on the National
Security Council, told House impeachment investigators on Tuesday that
the White House transcript of a July call between President Trump and
Ukraine’s president omitted crucial words and phrases, and that his attempts
to include them failed, according to three people familiar with the testimony.

The omissions, Colonel Vindman said, included Mr. Trump’s assertion that
there were recordings of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. discussing
Ukraine corruption, and an explicit mention by Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr
Zelensky, of Burisma Holdings, the energy company whose board employed
Mr. Biden’s son Hunter."


But the President and his supporters have directly stated that the transcript we were given covered the entire call as reported by CNN:

“. . . Trump himself has repeatedly insisted that the transcript released
by his White House was absolutely exact.

Twice in a press conference earlier this month, Trump went out of his way
to say the rough transcript was, in fact, a verbatim recounting of his call
with Zelensky. "I had a transcript done by very, very talented people --
word for word, comma for comma," said Trump at one point in that
early October news conference. "Done by people that do it for a living.
We had an exact transcript." Later, he added that the document was
‘an exact transcript of my call, done by very talented people that do this
-- exact, word for word.’”

https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/30/politics/donald-trump-transcript-ukraine/index.html

There are literally dozens of other examples.

15. Unless I misheard, it's a transcript of another call

that took place before the July 25 call. Not a second transcript of the July 25th call.
