The transcript of the call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been released.
Democrats, convinced the transcript would proves Trump’s guilt, demanded to see it, and Republicans wanted to end the drama. But when the transcript came out, all hell broke loose — because President Trump has won yet again.
No wrongdoing by Trump
If there had indeed been some coercion of Ukraine by Trump on the transcript, then that would be cause for reprisal against him.
But Democrats decided to launch impeachment proceedings before they had any proof — and it looks like they spoke too soon.
The transcript was released unredacted, according to The Hill, and in the words of Mike Pence, it “completely vindicates” Trump. Indeed, Trump did nothing wrong; the “whistleblower” was spreading rumors with no proof.
But did Democrats allow this issue to quietly disappear and retreat to lick their wounds? Nope.
Dems throw away credibility
Even failed presidential candidate Eric Swalwell had to get his take out there, tweeting: “This [Ukraine transcript] is [Donald Trump’s] version and he admitted to betrayal. America is too great of a country to be led by such a cheat.”
Apparently, the new narrative is that the released transcript is “Trump’s version.” This implies that there is a separate, real version that proves Trump is guilty.
It looks like the Democrats will really stop at nothing to find guilt where there isn’t any.
The Dems will no doubt keep running with this, and nothing will stop them. They are willing to sacrifice any political credibility they may have had to pursue a lie.
If Trump can continue to expose their dishonesty on a national scale, he will easily win re-election in 2020.
