The White House has released the official transcript of the private telephone conversation between President Trump and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy – the conversation on which the Democrats are now basing their call to impeach President Trump. But according to the document, while the president did ask his Ukrainian counterpart to look into Joe Biden’s alleged involvement in the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Biden’s son, Trump did not mention any aspect of withholding aid from that country if the act was not done.
“The Ukrainian transcript doesn’t show anything unusual or wrong,” asserts J. Christian Adams, a former Justice Department attorney who is now general counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation. “It’s really strange that they were triggered by it. I think that anything Trump does triggers them. The fact that he was talking about potential criminal behavior by Joe Biden’s son probably triggered them doubly bad. They don’t want anybody talking about that, so that, of course, becomes an impeachable offense.”
