Trump confirms he discussed Biden with Ukrainian president

Source: Axios

President Trump confirmed to reporters on the White House South Lawn Sunday that he discussed Joe Biden and his son during a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky on July 25.

"The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, with largely corruption ó all of the corruption taking place ó largely the fact that we don't want our people like Vice President Biden and his son creating to the corruption already in the Ukraine and Ukraine has got a lot of problems. The new president is saying that he's going to be able to rid the country of corruption, and I said that would be a great thing, we had a great conversation."

Why it matters: Trump said on Friday that "it doesn't matter" what he discussed with Zelensky, but appeared to be more forthcoming about the call on Sunday as reports in the New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal continue to reveal new details. Some have speculated that Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine until Zelensky promised to investigate Biden and his son, but the president was adamant on Sunday that there was "no quid pro quo."

Nonetheless, Democrats have demanded that Trump release the transcript of the phone call to prove he has nothing to hide. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said that the "existence of an explicit quid pro quo" isn't necessary, and that if Trump "demanded a foreign government do his political bidding, thatís when he crossed the critical threshold."

1. He's admitting to one part of the lie to deflect from the rest of it.

There must be a lot more to this if he's backtracked this much.

13. There is ALWAYS "more to it," to everything.

But, I suspect he is a little nervous this time and sees a crack... so he's gotta try to plug it...with half truths and lies, as gangsters do...

It is just a matter of time. I don't think Trump has a clue.

Not much I can say, other than echoing the chorus of "If only there was SOMETHING Congress could do about it."

19. He very well may be involved in murder

We already know he must have had something to do with Khashoggi's murder, and he very well may have had something to do with others, too. We are learning more and more about his and his family's' crimes with each new day.
We also know he couldn't care less. He shows no remorse, is very vengeful and would do anything for financial advantage.

23. The fact that he doesn't apologize for wrong or misused

words in his writing or conversation indicates a problem with reality. Infallibility from his god complex. He is writing and conversing on a low level. Using creating for contributing is maybe 5th grade level. Apologies to 5th graders.

28. Gotta think like tRUMP does...

He talks big, tough and lets others do the dirty (illegal) work. Cohen, Rudy, dozens of lawyers, anyone. Then when the legal shit hits the fan he deflects and points to "you better ask Cohen, or Rudy or the lawyers, what I did was great, beautiful, nothing wrong."

31. Remember when he said the Trump Tower meeting was about adoption policy?

...and there were no Russians there.

Then it turned out not to be about adoptions?

Then it turned out that there was one Russian there, then two, then three?

This is like that.

33. aiding and abetting bribery and obstructing justice

Aiding and abetting bribery and obstructing justice..need we say more? Now if AG Barr doesn't do something about this he needs to be arrested and put in jail for the same!! Americans ,,,real Americans & Patriots are sick and tired of all this cover up....

Barr helped Reagan escape prosecution for Iran-Contra. He worked for Bush/Cheney who still can not leave the US easily as known war criminals indicted in several nations. Trump received Barrís pledge to do the same for Trump regardless of who and what Trump may be. Trump could easily be working in serious ways as a threat to the US making sure his children go to the intelligence briefings every morning and sending them out to his friends like the Saudis to perhaps sell intelligence for personal profit.
