Following the release of a transcript betwen President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky – which does not reval a ‘quid pro quo’ or other attempts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Trump’s 2020 Democratic rival Joe Biden, the Wall Street Journal‘s Kimberly Strassel took to Twitter to dissect yet ‘another internal attempt to take out a president.’
Presented without commentary:
1) Having read DOJ’s Trump-Ukraine release, here’s the real story: This is another internal attempt to take out a president, on the basis of another non-smoking-gun.
2)As to call transcript itself: Trump’s actual “favor” is that Ukraine look backward, to what happened in the 2016 election. This is a legitimate ask, since election meddling looks to have come from both Russia and Ukraine.
