For Wednesday morning the President has tweeted 11 times so far.
Great new book by the brilliant Andrew McCarthy, BALL OF COLLUSION, THE PLOT TO RIG AN ELECTION AND DESTROY A PRESIDENCY. Get it, and some other great new books which I will soon be recommending. They tell you about the Crooked Pols and the Witch Hunt that has now been exposed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2019
There has been no President in the history of our Country who has been treated so badly as I have. The Democrats are frozen with hatred and fear. They get nothing done. This should never be allowed to happen to another President. Witch Hunt!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2019
“The Democrats have been talking about Impeaching Donald Trump since before he was inaugurated.” @SteveDoocy @foxandfriends And for no reason other than the great success we are having with the Economy, the Military, Vets, Tax and Regulation Cuts, HealthCare, and so much more!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2019
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2019
“Democrats wrote to the Ukrainian government in May 2018 urging it to continue investigations into President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign — collusion later found NOT TO EXIST.” https://t.co/wYdRmpfddk— Donald J.

“You don’t see a direct quid pro quo in this.” @BretBaier— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2019
“He (President Trump) didn’t specifically mention the explicit quid pro quo of…unless you investigate this…we’re going to withhold military aid to you.” Pamela Brown— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2019
Early Tuesday afternoon, when reports started surfacing that Pelosi was opening an official impeachment inquiry the President announced that he would be releasing the transcript of what he called his “pitch perfect” call with Ukraine President Zelensky.
On Wednesday morning the White House released the transcript.
Some images from the 5 page PDF.
In this image the President tosses our allies under the bus. Saying that Germany does nothing for the Ukraine. He adds that European countries are also not helping Ukraine enough. He then says, “But the United States has been very very good to Ukraine,” adding, “I wouldn’t say that it’s reciprocal necessarily because things are happening that are not good, but the United States has been very very good to Ukraine.”
In this image the President says, “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it.”
He mentions Crowdstrike. [I have zero idea the relevance of Crowdstrike. Twitter users are telling me it has to do with the DNC server that was hacked by the Russian’s]
For more background on Crowdstrike, which Trump was very upset about, they released a report linking Russia to DNC hacks but also in directly targeting Ukrainien military forces by hacking into their phones https://t.co/3haORHCk2z— 100% Unbiased (like everyone else) (@SciencePartisan) September 25, 2019
He goes on to say he’d like the U.S Attorney General William Barr to call the President of Ukraine or “your people,” in order to “get to the bottom of it.”
The President then calls Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony from the day before the July 25th phone call a “very poor performance,” and an “incompetent performance,” adding “but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine.”
Zelensky assures the President he will surround himself with good people, and that an assistant of his had spoken with the President’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.
At the end of page 3 and the start of page 4, President Trump mentions that a prosecutor was fired, “who was very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair.”
He goes on to mention “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.”
[Biden =’s former Vice President Joe Biden, current candidate for Democratic President.]
[as a reminder Viktor Shokin was fired as Ukraine General Prosecutor for not prosecuting among other people, Hunter Biden’s boss.]
He again mentions that he’d like the Ukrainian President to work with both the U.S. Attorney General and his personal attorney.
President Zelensky mentions that he was thankful President Trump was the first to mention that the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yonanovitch.
[The Washington Post reported via an opinion piece, in May of 2019, she was recalled earlier than expected from her post.]
President Trump responds saying, “well, she’s going to go through some things.” He also adds again that he’d have AG Barr, and Giuliani contact the Ukrainian President.
