Multiple Outlets Chop Up Ukraine Transcript, Focusing Only On Trump’s Comment On Biden
Multiple outlets chopped up the transcript of President Donald Trump speaking with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, making it seem as though Trump was asking for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.
A whistleblower complaint alleged the president had an inappropriate conversation with Ukraine. Trump released the call’s transcript Wednesday, which showed he asked Ukraine to look into CrowdStrike, a private security group the Democratic National Committee hired to look into Russian interference in its servers. Trump also asked Zelensky to look into the firing of a prosecutor who was looking into Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.
CNN, MSNBC and NPR, among the news outlets, edited out the CrowdStrike portion of the transcript, making it seem as though Trump’s focus of the phone call was to have Joe Biden’s son investigated. In fact, the request begins by asking Ukraine to look into meddling in the 2016 election.

Why should CNN change its tune now? They have been pushing lies, misdirections and directing hate week for a while now. What other choice do they have apart from projecting their crimes and corruption onto someone willing to do something about it.
CNN's reputation for fake news is notorious. if it was not for the contract at the airports sounds like they would be out of a job. Keep winning Trump.

Trump is going after his political opponents child.
Sounds to me like Trump is going after a crook.

Whether or not that's true, why is it Trump's place to demand an investigation? This is a Ukrainian matter, not a US matter. Therefore the only reason Trump would want this investigation reopened is because it would hurt his political opponent.
Now, I'm not saying it's an impeachable offense. That's not for me to decide. But people need to stop acting like this was some altruistic move on Trump's part that just got misconstrued.
