For someone that generally likes to act as though he has all of the conceivable powers in the world, Donald sure is suddenly singing a different tune now that Americans and members of our government alike are calling on him to release the transcripts of his phone call with Ukraine’s president in the wake of his Whistleblower Gate scandal.
Suddenly, the very same man that claims he can essentially do whatever in the hell he wants as president is now claiming that he simply does not have the ability to release the written copy of what was said during the phone call in question — the one that was so alarming in its content that a White House official felt they had no choice but to call it “urgent and credible.”
During a press availability today, one reporter decided to call Donald out on that very topic after he and his personal attorney Rudy Guiliani launched multiple allegations with absolutely no proof to back themselves up.
When the reporter in question asked Donald whether or not he requested an investigation into Biden from Ukraine, Trump quickly attempted to nonsensically flip the script on none other than Biden himself, saying that Biden was the one who did it.
“No, I didn’t. No, I didn’t. Joe Biden said it about his son,” Trump ranted. “Joe Biden was very dishonest. What he said if they don’t do this or that, get rid of a certain prosecutor. Joe Biden said it because you’re a faker, you, in particular, you’re fake news in particular. You don’t want to report that.”
Trump then quickly merged into a rage over Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“I hope you get to see the call,” Trump reverted back to his Ukraine scandal. “I did not ask for, I did not make a statement that you have to do this or I’m not going to give you aid. I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t do that. With that being said, what I want, we’re giving a lot of money away to Ukraine and other places.”
“Sir, you can release — you can authorize the release of the transcript. Will you do that?” the reporter called Trump out.
“I can do it very easily, but I’d rather not do it from the standpoint of all of the other conversations I have,” Trump stated, again not making any sense. “I may do it because it was a very innocent call on his part and mine. We had a very nice call. It was really a congratulatory call. Because he had just won, it was just confirmed and he’s the new president.”
Of course, Trump has had absolutely no issue with declassifying information in the past — when it wasn’t a treason charge for him.
Will President Trump release a transcript of his call with Ukraine’s president, now at the center of the whistleblower controversy?
He said today, four times, he hopes it’s released. But also signaled he won’t release it.
