Parts of Trump Call Summary

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 11/19/2019 9:16:53 PM

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman admitted he made up elements of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an official summary. Prior to the call, Vindman included a discussion about corruption in the talking points provided to the president but Trump did not use them in the call. The summary Vindman wrote after the call read: President Trump (Snip) expressed his commitment to work together with President-elect Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people to implement reforms that strengthen democracy, increase prosperity, and root out corruption. But Vindman clarified during his testimony that the president did not bring up the topic rooting out corruption

Comments:

In his telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky, the President didn’t use that (Vindman) talking point about “rooting out corruption”, but Vindman left it in the summary he composed - the “readout" that was released to the media and others - anyway! The audacity of this little weasel!!!

Folks, the Dems have lost the public on this. You can feel it deflating. Every fool they drag up in front of the camera just looks worse than the last. Oh I know they'll probably ram through a vote to impeach. But the IG report is going to drop as this charade dies it's own slow death. I know it may be naive on my part, but I believe the long awaited reckoning is coming.

The Dems are losing those of the public who are paying attention to the actual testimony. A large chunk of the public only hear the talking points put out by Democrat Marketing Department know as the MSM. Those people probably think Schiff is brilliant, the witness testimony proves bribery, and Trump is on the verge of being deposed and sent to prison.

And Schiff orchestrated this whole thing, had his staff meet with Ciaramella, maybe Vindman as well, helping to write the "whistleblower" official statement, in a conspiracy to bring an impeachment investigation. I'd like to see Schiff's face when Vindman admitted he inserted the "corruption" language knowing that Trump never said it. That alone is a fraudulent and illegal action, and implicates Ciaramella in perpetrating a fraud and lying in a sworn statement made to the government. Drag that little brat into the hearings and make him testify!

State Department official David Holmes admitted in closed-door testimony last week that he had not taken notes about the conversation he claims to have overheard between President Donald Trump and U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland. Holmes testified in a public hearing at the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday morning that he heard Trump speaking to Sondland on a mobile phone while sitting at an outdoor restaurant table on July 26th — the day after Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He said that he heard Trump say “investigations,” and that in a subsequent conversation, Sondland said Trump wanted to investigate the “Bidens.” Sondland disputed that in his

Ukraine’s top prosecutor announced Wednesday that the country is widening its investigation into the founder of Burisma Holdings, the natural gas firm where Hunter Biden held a lucrative role on the board while his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, was leading Ukraine policy and “anti-corruption” efforts for the Obama administration. Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka said Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky—whose whereabouts are currently unknown—is suspected of “theft of government funds on an especially large scale,” according to a Reuters report on Wednesday.(Snip)Andriy Derkach, one of the lawmakers at the press conference, alleged that the $16.5 million Hunter Biden received as payment from Burisma was stolen from Ukrainian citizens.

As Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman sat in a stately chamber testifying Tuesday, the White House posted on its official Twitter account a message denouncing his judgment. His fellow witness, Jennifer Williams, had barely left the room when the White House issued a statement challenging her credibility. In President Donald Trump’s Washington(Snip) that might not seem all that remarkable — but for the fact that Vindman and Williams both still work for the very same White House that was publicly assailing them. With the president’s allies joining in, the two aides found themselves condemned as nobodies, as plotting bureaucrats, as traitors within and, in Vindman’s case, as an immigrant with dual loyalties.

Lieutenant Colonel Vindman wants you to know his rank. This miles gloriosus, who clumsily cast himself as both martinet and insubordinate meddler, knows something of rank and privilege. In colloquy with the witness, Representative Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) referred to Vindman as “Mr. Vindman.” Vindman, lips pursed, breathed back, “Ranking member, it’s Lieutenant Colonel Vindman, please.” Nunes missed the opportunity to top this affected pomp insisting “It is Honorable Ranking Member Nunes, please.” Honorifics to the death. Game on, Colonel Sanders! In seriousness, Vindman demanded obeisance to his military rank, although he was appearing before Congress in connection with his role in the civilian administration of diplomacy.

Piatt [or Pyatt], who preceded former U.S. Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, is the fourth official who worked under former President Barack Obama to raise malfeasance concerns about Burisma.
