What's scary is that Trump actually thought the "Transcript" helped him!

Also, very curious.

This is 5 pages, and I challenge even the slowest reader to not finish reading this aloud in about 10 minutes.

This was a 30 minute call.

Yea this is what they were willing to release instead of the whistleblower complaint, which is said to reference multiple issues and not just this phone call.

And it appears that the IG and DNI referred a criminal complaint about the president to Barr's DOJ after the whistleblower complaint, and they decline to persue it.

Barr today is back peddling because he knows this looks reeeeeally bad.

It sure does. The most stressful part in all of this will be if GOP senators will finally have enough and choose to stop supporting him. I haven't seen anything today that would suggest that will happen. So it's not only proving that DT committed a crime, but also presenting enough for the Republicans to say "enough is enough".

Well, except for Romney, who probably now has his eyes set on the 2020 Republican nomination.

pence would be the nominee pretty much by default. i don't see how the GOP could hold anything resembling an actual primary at this stage if he does get tossed (he won't).

Although i do think it is an interesting notion. I mean. Romney could really make himself a patriotic hero here.
If he turned and was in favor of the inquiry, and got a few other repubs to join him to defy the president because of the danger, in the name of national security.

I could see how he could maybe not primary the president (or Pence if he was successful in complete impeachment) this time, but would be set up as the principled, strong leader for 2024.

yep, if on day ONE we get this completely damning "memo" that the WH offered to release. Then i can't imagine what else will be unearthed, and Barr is smack in the middle of this shit.
Would be amazing if they both would go down.

First props to DaveC for the perfect Seinfeld quote.

Second,
let's list just how many different investigations Trump mentioned within 5 pages...

Hillary Clinton's emails
Biden
Biden's son
origins of the Mueller investigation
and
I believe a mention that Barr would discuss another investigation with him.

That's in the abbreviated memo that they gladly handed over. Jesus

I can easily see this scenario mentioned in one of the replies to that tweet eventually playing out:

Quote:
I would suggest the following to the GOP. Go to the President, arrange a resignation....and similar to Ford, Pence pardons Trump. The fight then becomes to keep control of Senate. The States then go after Trump and he becomes the first ex-Pres to go to the Big House
Though, of course, my hope would be that Pence would leave with Trump and Trump doesn't get pardoned.

That memo is truly something. They're just stroking each other's backs like crazy here. Two bits that particular amused me-this response from Zelenskyy:

Quote:
I will make sure that I surround myself with the best and most experienced people. I also wanted to ·tell you that we are friends. We are great friends and you Mr. President have. friends in our country so we can continue our strategic partnership. I also plan to surround myself with great people
Jesus Christ, he wasn't kidding when he talked about using Trump's playbook at the start of that call.

and this line from Trump:

Quote:
Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man.
LOL.

(Seriously, if Trump's going down, does this mean Giuliani and Barr can go with him? 'Cause they're sure getting mentioned an awful lot here, and then of course we all saw the WTF-ery that was Giuliani's interview last week, so...)

But yeah. Wow. That's just...truly something, that transcript. And Trump goes right on ahead and has this conversation the very day after everything with Mueller. Because he's a complete and total dumbass. God willing this is going to be the final nail in his coffin.

It will be hilarious watching Barr and Guliani and state department officials that have all groveled at his feet for the last year, get tossed under the bus as Trump tries anything to save himself.
