As a sociopath who cannot help but confess his crimes while claiming it never happened, Donald Trump effectively admitted over a weekend during a telephone call in July, he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the alleged corruption of Joe Biden and his son. "The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, largely corruption, all the corruption taking place, was largely the fact that we don't want our people like Vice President Biden and his son [contributing] to corruption already in Ukraine "Trump told reporters, using his trademark oratory skills. This goes with the details we know so far that the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, it involved the president pressuring Zelensky eight times during a conversation to analyze his political rival, weeks before the Trump administration began revising $ 250 million in aid to Ukraine. This chat, along with "multiple actions, ”Were the basis for a complaint from an intelligence community member who was filed on August 12 and considered an "urgent concern" needed to be shared with Congress by the inspector general. The government, however, refused to let it happen, defying a subpoena and, in the assessment of House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, violating the law. But according to Senator Lindsey Graham, the president is about to show a level of openness and honesty that has never been exhibited in this particular executive branch, and in so doing prove to enemies that he is innocent.
"I believe President Trump will surprise him with his willingness to publicize and be transparent about this phone call, because I think he has done nothing wrong and has nothing to hide," Graham said conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt during an interview on Monday. "Get ready for some announcements from the president that I think will exceed all expectations," he added. "I can't promise that this will happen, but I think the president will clear the air when it comes to the allegation of the complainant."
It's not clear which planet Graham is living in, but we're sure the neighborhood is Trump's biggest and most embarrassing Toady-ville. Here, residents believe that a man who has never cleared the air about anything and, in fact, prevented any investigation into his conduct, will offer some disclosures like Washington and the world have never seen. You know, just as Trump instructed his general advice to lie to investigators about trying to remove Robert Mueller. Or when he said multiple people not comply with subpoenas. Or the way he was totally transparent about his tax returns and didn't sue multiple entities to keep them a secret.
In related news, on Monday, Trump meditated at the United Nations General Assembly, that "if a Republican did what Joe Biden … would be occupying the electric chair now," that certainly sounds like the comment of a carefree man confident in his innocence.
