Today, the White House officially released a transcript of President Donald Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
However, in spite of what Democrats have used as a reason for launching impeachment proceedings against Trump, the transcript does NOT show that Trump leveraged military aid as part of any sort of quid pro quo.
Instead, it appears as if Trump merely inquired into the possible illegal activities of Biden’s son in a respectable manner that is expected of a president.
Trump just wanted information. He didn’t strong-arm anybody.
During his phone call, Trump said:
“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great.”
Essentially, these documents provided by the White House vindicate Trump of wrongdoing, which will make it very hard – if not impossible – for Democrats to succeed in impeaching him.
As a result, Trump is taking a victory lap on Twitter. He’s even saying that the transcript caught Democrats by surprise:
“Will the Democrats apologize after seeing what was said on the call with the Ukrainian President? They should, a perfect call – got them by surprise!”
This is really good news for Trump. It completely destroys the narrative that Trump was somehow trying to strong-arm world leaders into doing his bidding. Instead, it looks like Trump merely fulfilled his duties as president to investigate corruption by former government officials like Joe Biden.
There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with what Trump did.
If Democrats go ahead and push for Trump to be impeached, they’re probably going to push him to victory in the 2020 election.
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Do YOU think impeaching Trump will backfire on Democrats?
Email me your answer.
Until next time,
PS: Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has promised that if he becomes president, he’s going to CONFISCATE all AR-15s.
Well, I have a message for him. COME AND TAKE IT.
