Trump says he has authorized release of transcript of call with the Ukrainian president

Source: Washington Post

NEW YORK — President Trump said Tuesday that he has authorized the release the full transcript of his phone call with the Ukrainian president in which he allegedly brought up investigating former vice president Joe Biden and his son.

“I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine,” Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!”

Trump’s decision to release the transcript follows nearly a week of speculation around what he specifically asked for during a call that an intelligence official found so problematic he filed an official complaint.

Also Tuesday, Trump confirmed that he withheld military aid from Ukraine, saying he did so over his concerns that the United States was contributing more to Ukraine than European countries were.

14. He might release a transcript of a phonecall...

 

But what is needed is the specific whistleblower complaint and interview. If this transcript is declasified and open to the public, there's no reason to withold the whistleblower complaint, or prevent him from speaking with the intellegence committees.

9. Trump's White House has already been caught falsifying other phone/interview transcripts...

I have no confidence whatsoever that what is released will match what was said. In fact, I have a modicum of confidence that it will NOT match what was said.

Just shows how terrified Trump is of being impeached, though, despite his bluster otherwise.

15. F&&cking liar. Who believes this piece of crap anymore? He's lied over 10,000 times and calls...

everything a 'witch hunt'. Fake excuses (oh, Europe is not doing their part, blah blah blah), and full of crap as usual. All I can say is that he's going down, and he's going down hard. As he deserves. This is not presidential behavior and he doesn't deserve to be president, especially since he cheated and lied his way into office.

And where is the f**king senate in all of this? I can see the House is doing their part, and the senate is mum, and doing nothing. Perhaps they all should be thrown out of office, being that they failed in their constitutional duties to check this president and his idiotic behaviors.

17. Giuliani already admitted he was instructed by the State Dept to contact Ukraine.

He was probably told to do this to keep the Biden request out of transcripts.

19. This will be the sliced and diced version with all the payment bits taken out.

Why anyone thinks his "transcript" will be anything like the real call is beyond me. Nixon released transcripts too . . . and then they got compared to the tapes. Not exactly identical. We should try to get a transcript or even audio from the Ukrainians.

24. Looking forward to seeing a notation of "18.5 minute gap" in transcript.

He's always trying to out-Nixon, Nixon, so he's following the roadmap that was laid out.

He already has his Roy Cohen (Giuliani); has defied the legal demands of congressional investigators; and engaged in lies, deceit, and cover-up on a scale that would make even Nixon blush and say, "Whoa! Hold it just a minute, there, Spanky, and back off a bit! This is going way too far."

25. Michael McFaul believes this would set a bad precedent




"This is a big mistake -- terrible precedent, as no foreign leaders in future will speak candidly with the president on any future calls. Dont release Trump-Zelensky or Trump-Putin transcripts of calls. Instead, release whistleblower's complaint to Congress, as required by law."

A "transcript" written by barr is more worthless than the paper it's written on.
That is what donnie doofus wants to release to the public.

35. "complete, fully declassified, and unredacted" How would we know? We would not.

We need the full whistle blower complaint.
And we need to put anyone who was listening in on the call under oath (including Trump) and have them testify.

39. Fuck the transcript...

First, it’s bad policy to release the transcript of a conversation with a foreign leader. Second, we need the full complaint with all associated documents related to each and every act by our crooked President.

The transcript is bullshit.
