Nothing Burger: Mainstream Media Is Scrambling After WH Record Confirms Trump Was Right All Along

The White House released an unredacted version of the phone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and mainstream media is scrambling to keep their narratives that President Trump did something wrong intact.

For context, Trump has repeatedly claimed that he was innocent against waves of allegations brought by Democratic members of Congress and mainstream media that his call included impeachable offenses. They alleged Trump repeatedly demanded Zelensky investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son.

After the White House released the record of the conversation, it appears Trump was right.

But, mainstream media is doing everything they can to rebox the release and claim Trump was still in the wrong. Check it out:

CNN legal analyst Susan Hennessey tweeted: “Transcript of Trump’s call with Ukrainian president shows him offering U.S. assistance for Biden investigation.”

Take care of her language as it is obviously written to have readers (and her 259,000+ followers) believe Trump offered financial aid in exchange for the investigation. He did not.

In fact, Trump did not offer anything in exchange for the investigation. He said, per the release, that he would offer the services of United States Attorney General William Barr to help with the investigation.

Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich also correctly reported what the release actually said.

“No quid pro quo, no talk of withholding military aid, Trump asked Ukraine to look into the firing of a prosecutor who Biden bragged about firing under threat of withholding $1 billion in loan securities. [And,] Trump concern over Ukraine election interference,” Pavlich tweeted.


Ouch. Do not forget this red-hot take from ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl moments before the record was released:
