"You know, the American people have the transcript of the President's call and . . ."

No, Vice President Pence, the American people do not have the transcript of the President's call. You have misspoken.

Pence this morning answering a question about his involvement in the extortion scandal:


"You know, the American people have the transcript of the President's call and . . ."

"And for people who have questions, again, they can look at the transcript."


Reporters have to ask Pence when Trump will release the transcript. They have to ask Trump when he will release the transcript. They have to ask the gutless defenders in Congress and elsewhere when will Trump release the transcript. Then when they play dumb about 'already released', say No, we mean the one hidden away, when will you release the full transcript so "the American people have the transcript"?

It's not just semantics or technicalities, it's cover-up and normalizing lies and deceit.

Of course, there is much more to the extortion scandal, a great deal more evidence from many sources of a wide conspiracy of pressure and bribery. But don't let them get away with perpetuating false claims about facts to manipulate public opinion, dammit!

2. 43 minutes of coverage to file a freakin' paper for the Putin/Trump ticket?

Disgusting.

I wouldn't wait on line that long to file a paper at the DMV. And I certainly wouldn't televise it.

3. I hear even professional reporters and left leaning pundits talking about "the transcript".

The transcript has not been released. No one has seen it. It is locked in a super secret server reserved for National Security information.

No wonder ordinary folk who don't follow every detail of political news are confused.

We expect Pence and other Trump humpers to lie, but professionals should not be repeating those lies.

4. Every Democrat who makes a TV/public appearance must point out that we don't have the transcript.

Repeatedly.

And use terms like extortion and bribery to describe what Trump did. And make it clear that Trump threatens national security.

Every Democrat on the same page, repeating the same message over and over and over again.

5. Yes, retire "quid pro quo". It is irrelevant and makes folks eyes glaze over.

6. We don't have the full transcript, but what we do have, I've read AND...

it's damning. The proper response to "We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes." IS NOT "I would like you to do us a favor though..." That's what a mobster says before the shakedown.

8. We have the Transcript they made.

We DO NOT have the edits that Col. Vindman made; they were rejected because they were damning, and Eisenberg knew it.

There is no complete Transcript, except maybe in Ukraine.
