Donald Trump isn’t having the best time of it on this season of “The Trump Admin Shenanigans,” is he? After the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi formally announced an impeachment probe into the US Cheeto-in-Chief following his seedy Ukraine dealings which included a seriously troubling phone call back in July, the transcript of said phone call has been released and hoo boy is it something.
Just to quickly bring everyone up to speed, Trump had a chat with Ukraine’s president back in July and reportedly asked them to
make up dig up dirt on his 2020 election challenger Joe Biden’s son. This alarmed some folks, one of whom blew the whistle and Congress reacted by forcing the White House to release the transcript of Trump’s chat with Ukraine.
Well folks, we have (some of) the transcript and it honestly reads like a C-grade mafia film that Trump himself wrote with gold sharpie.
Not only does the Ukrainian president speaks like a Trump clone – he says “drain the swamp” and kisses arse like what Trump does in the company of dictators like Kim Jong-un – but Trump even had the gall to say this:
“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.”
But the highlight of the entire thing is when Trump drops this little nugget about Biden:
“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. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it. It sounds horrible to me.”
Trump’s mafia film The transcript is only five pages but the “dodgy stuff per page” ratio is off the scale on this thing and you can check it out here.
Now there are a few things to keep in mind about this transcript released by the White House. Firstly, it isn’t the complete transcript and is only part of the entire conversation Trump had with Ukraine’s president.
And secondly, the transcript technically isn’t even a transcript as it is a memorandum of the phone call and therefore may not even be 100 percent verbatim.
It’s almost like the White House has some skeletons to hide or something.
It remains to be seen how this dodgy transcript of Trump’s even dodgier phone call with Ukraine will affect the whole impeachment thing that’s going on but you can be sure the Trump Admin have got a plan to discredit everything related to it… which would’ve went okay (for them) had they decided to not accidentally send it to the Democrats.
Throw in the extra spicy detail that Ukraine definitely knew ahead of time that discussing Joe Biden was a condition for a chat with Trump and what you have is… well, it’s something bad for the orange-haired Combover Caligula
season of “The Trump Admin Shenanigans” probe just got way more interesting.
