As the House Impeachment Managers argue on the Senate floor the case for President Trump’s removal from office, the best evidence in defense of the President is to read the transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.
President Trump often tweets “READ THE TRANSCRIPTS,” as he did Friday morning ahead of the Impeachment Managers’ third day of opening arguments.

The Democrats, who have not even accused the President of a crime, allege Trump “abused his power” on a phone call with the Ukrainian President on July 25th, 2019. They claim there was a “quid pro quo”: aid would be withheld until investigations into the Biden’s dealings in Ukraine were underway.
There’s one problem with the Democrats’ theory: that’s not what happened, and the transcript of the phone call in question backs up the President.
Trump was hesitant to send hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Ukraine amidst potential corruption. He asked Zelensky to do us, America, a favor and look into the corruption – no mention of investigations being tied to the aid. The aid was released, and no investigation into the Biden’s or others were started to prompt the release.

The President’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told the War Room not only was the call perfect, but if Trump had not made the call he should not be President.
