He also said he wanted to buy them, not get them for free.


And Trump said, he needed a favor. That favor would be over and beyond the Ukraine dollars spent by buying more Javelins.



we promised to protect Ukraine's sovereignty if they got rid of their nukes... And they're still in a conflict with Russia.


Those were Russian stocks being stored in the Ukraine, and the Ukraine gained sovereignty from the Soviet Union in the 1990s. They're not "still" in conflict with Russia, Russia invaded them and they're trying to hold onto their sovereignty, with our help.

Not to toot my own horn (j/k, I love tooting my own horn)... But I forsaw Hunter's foreign dealings being a point of contention in Joe's campaign a while back.

Nicely done!



What I'm waiting for, is having CNN and MSNBC state that we aren't smart enough to see the obvious impeachable offences and that we should trust them to tell us what is in the transcripts.

as if selling weapons dont come with stipulations


But this stipulation was a personal favor. That favor was to help Trump politically by researching his political opponents, and working with his personal attorney and the US Attorney General.

Not a good look for Trump.

how else are negotiations to be conducted?

you can attempt to spin it like that to someone who didnt read the transcipt
that is not what was said

i am curious
are you just as upset about the crowdstrike discussion?
that is much more dangerous to the dems imo....or do you just not realize it?

He asked for a personal favor, not of favor on behalf of the nation. I'm not surprised that you guys can't see anything wrong with that.

I was referring to still in conflict as post Crimea or 2015.

But that's neither here nor there. We're obligated to help protect Ukraine, so them buying some Javelins seems to be pretty standard. Considering we have a Army, Navy, Marines, and Airforce presence in Ukraine.... Javelins just don't seem damning to me.

It sure looks like quid pro quo.


What did Trump offer in exchange?


Bottom of page 2, President Zelinskyy states that they'd like to buy more "Javelins", for defense purposes. Top of page 3, President says, "I'd like you to do us a favor though

To me, in my opinion, that "favor" is a stipulation. A quid pro quo, if you will.





lol
an ask from a foreign leader is now trumps fault?
as if selling weapons dont come with stipulations

this is exactly why potus has constitutional powers over diplomacy
he is the only one who gets to decide such
it is also why when he is done the treatys and agreements have to be ratified by the senate
getting in the middle of such is pure nonsense




It doesn’t matter if the foreign leader offered the dirt to Trump, or if Trump asked for it. Taking anything of value from a foreign government is a crime.

I’ve said it already, but the only way Trump survives this is if he can convince people like you that a crime is not a crime. You really should be angry. Trump has treated you and his other followers as useful idiots who he can manipulate as needed. He tells you to jump and you ask how high.

Also, don’t take it from me, a couple posts back I posted a quote from Lindsey Graham stating explicitly that getting anything of value from a foreign government is a crime.

This is just a piece of the puzzle and it’s damning. Trump clearly asks a foreign leader to investigate his political rival and work with his personal lawyer. This is collusion people. Remember that whole thing that was investigated by Mueller? Yeah, this is that.

The Trump admins only chance at getting out of this is attempting to normalize this behavior. Based off some responses in this thread he very well may be successful.

I don’t understand why you people aren’t pissed? The Trump admin thinks you people are so stupid you will buy anything they say. They are telling you this behavior is ok and you are eating it up. Do you have any self decency left at all? Trump has played you like a fiddle.
New user, new acct and like the rest, you come in here and criticize us for supporting out POTUS and dishing out FACTS compared to the fake news you consume daily.

Sit this one out.


Respectfully, everyone here is expressing their opinions. If you don’t like my opinions, that’s fine, just don’t read my stuff. But unless there is some rule in the terms and conditions I am not aware of, I am allowed to speak my mind just like the rest of you are.

I do think it is telling that you even responded in this way.
I'm glad you understand that it's just an opinion, but the fact is, there isn't anything in the transcript, as opined by liberal media and if that's the case, then the whistleblower in question is dubious at best.

Considering that the complaint will be made public as well, you and the dems got nothing.

So, respectfully, fact check first before commenting.

pffft
what are you reading?



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.

"us" is not me
"our country" is the usa
unless you think it means something else

lol

Ah, I see, but you're a partisan hack, of course you'll look for something bad, but you opinion is simply wrong and you lack the credibility to push that.

Is a memorandum of the call the same as a "complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript" ?

So here's an idea.

Beat him in 2020. To do that though, you'll have to sell a platform to independents. And as an independent myself, I haven't seen much of a unified platform other than mouth foaming towards Trump.

please point out where specifically?



You have to read in between the lines and see not what was said, but what wasn't.

It's there you will find the truth, this will DESTROY trump.


In other words, you have to make things up that are not a point of fact?

Good luck explaining this.

"Memorandum of Telephone Conversation"

In other words... NOT a transcript.
