With the Russian collusion narrative all but six feet under, and with every other “scandal” pushed out by the fake news media flopping more than a fish out of water, the Left’s latest “scandal” has ironically focused on Russia’s rival: Ukraine.
Like with the Russian collusion narrative, Trump was alleged to have tried to collude with Ukraine to interfere with the 2020 Presidential elections via the investigation of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, thereby hurting Biden’s own candidacy. It is also being alleged that Trump threatened Ukraine with withholding foreign aid to the country if they didn’t investigate Hunter and the company he worked for.
However, like with everything else these people spew, that was nothing more than fake news.
With the way the media was talking about it, they made it look like investigating Biden was all that was in Trump’s mind and that he was out to influence in the elections. But the facts point in the other direction completely.
You see, President Donald Trump recently released the full, unclassified transcript of his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
What we find in the transcript of the phone call are a couple of things:
First, Trump congratulating Zelensky on his party’s success in a recent Parliamentary election in which they gained quite a bit of power. They talked quite a bit about what they hope to do in the future as far as U.S.-Ukraine relations go, with Zelensky crediting Trump as being an inspiration for Zelensky’s own election victory back in May of this year. Zelensky mentioned his desire to “drain the swamp” present in Ukrainian politics, and the two discussed the relationship Ukraine has with the European Union, which doesn’t seem to be a particularly good one.
The transcript is five pages long and Trump doesn’t begin discussing other matters until the third page.
In that page, he mentions the cybersecurity company Crowdstrike, which is connected to the DOJ’s investigation into election interference.
President Trump said the following during the call: “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 wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’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 saw 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.”
So what is being said here? Trump is asking Ukraine to look into the whole ordeal surrounding Crowdstrike, which is under investigation by the DOJ as part of Barr's investigation into the origination of the Russian collusion hoax.
As far as Biden goes, to give you some context as to why he is being talked about at all, back in 2016, a top Ukrainian prosecutor was investigating Burisma Holdings, a company which employed the former VP’s son as a board member, as well as a firm called Rosemont Seneca, which received monthly transfers of upwards of $166,000 from Burisma between 2014 and 2015.
And Joe Biden himself had bragged about withholding $1 billion in U.S. loans to Ukraine if they didn’t fire the prosecutor investigating Hunter.
Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations that he told then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko: “I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
It’s truly ironic because one of the allegations the Left had been making about this call that Trump had with Zelensky was that he had a quid pro quo, or a favor granted in exchange for something in return, and that Trump had threatened to withhold money unless they investigate Biden, but in reality, we find that BIDEN himself had committed this type of quid pro quo threat.
All Trump had asked Zelensky to do is to look into the entire ordeal surrounding Crowdstrike, if at all possible. Within the phone call, Trump wasn’t pressuring Zelensky to look into anything. He didn’t threaten Ukraine with withholding funds if they didn’t do something. It was BIDEN who did that back when he was Vice President (and Obama was likely in on it too).
All that was in the phone call was Trump congratulating Zelensky on more election victories, discussing them meeting up in Poland, the U.S. or Ukraine, discussing the economic potential of Ukraine moving forward as an energy independent nation, and looking into Crowdstrike. It wasn't until later on that Trump mentioned the prosecutor who had been fired: "I just want to let you know that's the other thing... There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me," said the President to Zelensky.
The main thing that Trump seemed to have sought was looking into Crowdstrike, with the Biden stuff appearing to be a complete afterthought.
And, by the way, he didn’t have to threaten Ukraine like Biden did. That’s because Trump isn’t a corrupt crook like Joe Biden is or Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn) is. Why Sen. Chris Murphy? Because he did something relatively similar to Joe Biden.
The Hill reports that earlier in September, Sen. Chris Murphy told Zelensky not to cooperate with Rudy Giuliani. To Murphy’s own words: “I told Zelensky that he should not insert himself or his government into American politics. I cautioned him that complying with the demands of the President’s campaign representatives to investigate a political rival of the President would gravely damage the U.S.-Ukraine relationship. There are few things that Republicans and Democrats agree on in Washington these days, and support for Ukraine is one of them.”
Basically, he gave a thinly-veiled threat to President Zelensky not to investigate Hunter Biden in a rather similar manner as Joe did. He was essentially threatening that relations with the two countries could be jeopardized once a Democrat wins the White House if they investigate Hunter Biden and cooperate with Giuliani.
Again, these two Democrats (and others like them) are extremely corrupt.

Read it for yourself and see what a nothingburger this “scandal” which was used to launch an impeachment inquiry into the President is. Read it and discover just how utterly desperate the Left is to get rid of Trump. There is nothing in it that even points to criminal activity.
And for this, the Democrats wish to impeach him (not that they need much. His very existence triggers them to wish to impeach him). For this absolute fake news nothingburger.
The Democrats thought this would be what ended Trump. Like with everything else they tried, it utterly blew up in their faces.
Let’s see just how crazier these people can get. I have the feeling we’ve just scratched the surface.
“For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve.”
