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.”

Part of page 2.

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]

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.

President Zelensky page 3.

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.

Page 3 and 4.

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.
