Democrats Melt Down over Transcript: Trump a ‘Cheat,’ ‘Un-American,’ and ‘Danger to our Democracy'
( Breitbart )
Democrat lawmakers reacted to the release of the transcript detailing President Trump’s phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky Wednesday, claiming that the president betrayed the U.S. and calling him a “cheat,” “un-American,” and “danger to our Democracy.”
Trump authorized the release of the unredacted transcript of his conversation with Zelensky, which surfaced Wednesday morning. Republican lawmakers pointed out the absence of quid pro quo or violation of law and ripped their Democrat colleagues for pursuing impeachment before viewing the transcript.
However, Democrats across the board are proclaiming that the transcript implicates the president, falsely attributing Trump’s “favor” – a reference to made in regard to CrowdStrike – to Hunter Biden.
“Spoiler alert: President Trump attempted to bribe and extort a foreign leader for political gain,” far-left “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said.
“This—and so many other infractions he’s committed against our Constitution—is why it’s time to #ImpeachTrumpNow,” she added.
“I respect the responsibility of the President to engage with foreign leaders as part of his job. It is not part of his job to use taxpayer money to shake down other countries for the benefit of his campaign,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who formally announced the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, wrote.
“He betrayed his office, he betrayed the constitution, and he betrayed the national security,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said of Trump.
“Folks, I am surprised the White House even released this transcript. It’s worse than we thought,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) proclaimed.
“The President sought to use the powers of the United States government to investigate a political opponent. We have no choice but to impeach.”
