And each new detail we have discovered — such as Alexander Vindman’s testimony from yesterday – just makes the story appear worse to your Trump White House.
When Trump tweets, as he did this afternoon, a”casual reading of this Transcript leads EVERYBODY to find … the telephone with Ukrainian President was a completely proper one,” you are in a position to re-read that transcription memo on your own.
Following Ukraine’s Zelensky claims on this July 25 forecast his nation is practically prepared to purchase more Javelins in the USA for guards purposes, Trump answers: “I’d like you to do us a favor “
“I’d like you to discover what happened in this entire scenario with Ukraine, they state Crowdstrike… I guess you’ve got among your wealthy folks… The server they say Ukraine has it,” Trump adds.
And then comes Trump’s second request: “Another thing, There is a good deal of discussion about Biden’s son, which Biden ceased the prosecution and also a great deal of individuals wish to discover about that whatever you can perform together with the Attorney General is good. Biden went around bragging that he ceased the prosecution if you’re able to look to it… It seems horrible to me”
Among the reasons why there is so much focus on the practice of this impeachment narrative — that the resolution, the forthcoming vote, the way the White House is currently tackling the analysis (or not) — is since we know the majority of the narrative.
As we supposed, it wasn’t an entire transcript after all
Those omissions contained:
The Times adds that Vindman informed House impeachment researchers” he tried to alter the rebuilt transcript created from the White House personnel to signify the omissions. However, while a few of his edits seemed to have been effective, ” he said, these two corrections weren’t made.”
Since NBC’s Peter Alexander flags,” Trump said this concerning the transcription memo in his Oct. two news conference: “I had a transcript completed by very, very gifted individuals — word for word, comma for comma. Done by people who do it for a living. We had a specific transcript.”
Bear in mind, when we left a huge deal out of these ellipses in that transcription memo? Well, you now understand why…

Elizabeth Warren confronted two questions in a city hall in New Hampshire that she has not heard much of about the road. NBC’s Benjamin Pu reports: “One voter especially asked Warren how she’d care for Trump if he calls her’Pocahontas’ – that is the very first time that I’ve heard Republicans mention that in some time – and she got into a fiery response that resonated with the voters. ‘But we have a great deal of America – a whole lot more than 50% of America – that’s tired of this ugliness, that’s tired of this name-calling, that’s tired of this disgusting behavior, that’s tired of the simple fact that we finally have a President of the United States who embarrasses us around the planet, who runs and cuts on allies that stood together with us fought along with us,’ said Warren.”
Warren was asked how she would split gridlock at D.C., stating, “No. 1 in my listing is becoming elected to the White House and No. 2 would be to place Mitch McConnell from a project ” Following the event and through a gaggle with colleagues, per Pu,”Warren was requested that when the impeachment attained the Senate when she’d come off the road to return to the Hill:’We’ve got a duty here and it is not something which I take any joy in, but it is something which must be done so I will be there.'”
