Media Is Focusing On The Whole “Favor” Thing, Which Can Backfire Spectacularly

Let’s be honest: except for hardcore Democrats who despise Trump and cannot get over the 2016 election, along with the #NeverTrumpers, who say they are still right leaning, but are just as unhinged as the Democrats, most people find the “transcript” to be a big nothingburger. Politics as usual. Move along, nothing to see here. But, the unhinged moonbats figured out a talking point, highlighted here by the NY Times

Trump Pressed Ukraine’s President to Investigate Democrats as ‘a Favor’

President Trump repeatedly pressured Ukraine’s leader to investigate leading Democrats as “a favor” to him during a telephone call last summer in which the two discussed the former Soviet republic’s need for more American financial aid to counter Russian aggression.

In a reconstruction of the call released Wednesday by the White House, Mr. Trump urged President Volodymyr Zelensky to work with Attorney General William P. Barr and Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, on corruption investigations connected to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and other Democrats.

Although there was no explicit quid pro quo in the conversation, Mr. Trump raised the matter immediately after Mr. Zelensky spoke of his country’s need for more help from the United States. The call came only days after Mr. Trump blocked $391 million in aid to Ukraine, a decision that perplexed national security officials at the time and that he has given conflicting explanations for in recent days.

The aid freeze did not come up during the call, and Mr. Zelensky was not yet aware of it. Instead, he thanked Mr. Trump for previous American aid, including Javelin anti-tank weapons, and suggested he would need more as part of Ukraine’s five-year-old war with Russian-backed separatists in the country’s east.

“I would like you to do us a favor, though,” Mr. Trump responded, shifting to his interest in investigating Democrats and urging that he work with Mr. Barr and Mr. Giuliani.

“Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible,” Mr. Trump said.

That is playing fast and loose with the transcript (which, as you know, is not really a transcript, but a reconstruction by people who heard the call, since they are not recorded). Heck, you can read the transcript. The Times gives a link, and here it is elsewhere.

 The· President: I would like you to do us a favor though
because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a
lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with
this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess
you have one of your weal thy people… The server, they say
Ukraine has.it. There- are a lot. of things that went on, the·
:whole situation .. I think you 1 re _surrounding yourself with some
of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General
call you or your people and I would like you to ·get to the
bottom of it. As you say yesterday, that whole nonsense ended
with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an
incompetent performance, _but they say a lot of it started with
Ukraine. Whatever you can do, ·it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.

The favor part came during a discussion of Crowdstrike

It is unclear what Trump wanted the Ukrainian president to do regarding the Silicon Valley company, but it has played a role in American politics in recent years. CrowdStrike was hired by the Democratic National Committee in 2016 to investigate how hackers, which it later identified as Russian groups, breached a DNC network and then released stolen emails from the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to Wikileaks, just months before the U.S. general election.

According to cybersecurity analyst Andrew Nowinski, Trump is mentioning the company due to rumors that Hilary Clinton’s e-mail server had been mishandled during CrowdStrike’s investigation, and the server is now apparently in Ukraine. Washington Post also reported that Trump has questioned the cybersecurity firm’s role in the DNC investigation by asking on national cable news why the DNC hired CrowdStrike instead of going to the FBI first.

The thing about Biden came up later, and people have been talking about what exactly was going on there. Now, if true, there is real corruption and abuse of office there. You sure you want to continue down this road, Dems and #NeverTrumpers? You sure you want those worms coming out of the dirt? You sure you want people to be going “what did Crowdstrike do? Is that server in Ukraine? What did Joe Biden do for his son regarding Ukraine? Oh, and there’s a China thing?” Internet searches for these things are skyrocketing, which you can tell by the way autocomplete wants to complete certain searches.

Do Democrats want to attempt to defend Biden when more information comes out later, especially after attempting to attack Trump and defend Biden now?

Anyhow, the totally unbiased media has their Narrative, and is just clowning themselves and showing why they are fake news.

    Whistleblower complaint has been declassified and contains no ‘surprises,’ GOP lawmaker says

    Why is this important?

    The Democrats will impeach Trump no matter what he has done nothing wrong. They will impeach him because he wears too much orange tanning spray. Whatever.

    No the importance of this little tidbit is the: GOP LAWMAKER SAYS portion.

    In other words, since the Dems have no votes and NO GOP people are saying yeah we saw it and Trump is toast like Watergate was gonna be……then impeachment is nothing but ratings bonanza in which Trump wins and the Dems lose.

    Trump is already polling consistently above 50 percent now. Ahead of Obama despite the constant non-stop barrage from the Communist MSM. With those facts, the Democrats are insane to Impeach trump but lets hope they do!!!

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      And we know why they are desperate to remove TRUMP via a COUP!!!

      Because they know their batshit crazy policies will fail in a general election so they must FORCE AMERICA to vote for them. Like Putin always gets like 99 percent of the vote like all Dictators get 90-100 percent of the votes.

      That’s what the Democratic party has become now. Impeach the competition away. Have them Arrested and carted off to jail.

      Trump Pressed Ukraine’s President to Investigate Democrats as ‘a Favor’

      As I tried to tell the Walking Talking Boob.

      Ann Coulter, of all people, has a couple of salient points on this.

      The absolute worst version for Trump—i.e. the one being repeated non-stop on MSNBC—is that he did exactly what Obama and Biden were doing to Ukraine: intimidating an ally into giving us something in exchange for the foreign aid we were giving them.

      Even better is

      Ninety-nine percent of Americans will be hearing about the funny business with Biden’s son, Hunter, for the first time with the release of this transcript.

      And it does implicate Zippy.

      What is it the bunny suit keeps whining?

      We can prosecute the President after he’s left office

      I love the smell of schaudenfreude in the morning.

      But the best part of what she said comes here (liljeffy, I love the way you pay attention)

      The second issue the media does not want anyone to think about is CrowdStrike.

      What is CrowdStrike, you ask? That is the cybersecurity firm that is the sole source of the claim that the Russians hacked the DNC’s emails—which launched the conspiracy theories that tied our country in knots for the past three years.

      The Russian collusion story was originally hatched by Hillary Clinton in the summer of 2016 to cover up the utter corruption revealed by the dump of Democratic National Committee emails on Wikileaks. As was her practice whenever a scandal threatened to engulf her, Hillary rushed out and told the press to investigate something else.

      To wit, how would the Hildabeast know so much about CrowdStrike?

      Unless, maybe, she tried to use them, with the Ukraine government’s help, to do what she claimed Trump did with the Russians.

      The popcorn popper will keep a lot of houses warm this winter.

    Crowdstrike refused to turn over the servers to the FBI but gave them their report.

    Like dudes, it was the russians I tell ya.

    How do you know.

    Well the servers are in Ukraine.

    WTF? Why are the Democrats Servers in a foreign country?

    Well shit man dont you realize that if they are in a foreign country YOU cant access them and have no jurisdiction?

    LOLOLOLOLOL……..It really would be funny if it wasnt for the fact that our world is run by a shadow government and we are all sheeple. Dems, Libertarians, Communists, Socialists, Repubs and every other person on this planet thinks their side is awesome when in fact Trump is exposing this bullshit daily by simply being in office.

    the idiots running the world shadow government are allowing themselves to be exposed on a daily basis and now have become terrified. Trump must go. IMPEACH HIM and throw him in jail and if that doesnt work I shutter to think of the next steps these people are willing to take.

    • One must wonder why the Democrats have a greater trust in 2nd world countries on the other side of the planet for their data security than in their own country. Hillary’s home server was an obvious attempt to circumvent the FOIA. The consequence of that was loss of sensitive data to every one of America’s adversaries, potential adversaries and “frenemies”. But what was the DNC thinking? it’s like they answered that african money scam email and got a follow-up, “we know someone who can handle your data storage too”.
