Today, Donald Trump's White House emailed around a bunch of proposed defense talking points for all the toadies who have to play clean-up on aisle Ukraine. Oh, and it seems they also sent it to a bunch of Democratic lawmakers and their staff.
Oops. Or, whatever. They're so pathetic.
The email was titled, “What you need to know: President Trump’s call with President Zelenskyy,” and some idiot quickly tried to “recall” it, which of course does not work.
Felicia Sonmez reporting in the Washington Post:
Several Democratic Hill staffers said they had received the talking points as well as a follow-up email recalling the message.
According to the rough transcript of the call, Trump repeatedly said Zelensky should work with Attorney General William P. Barr or Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani. Giuliani had separately pressed Ukrainian officials to investigate the conduct of former vice president Joe Biden.
Among the talking points distributed by the White House is the claim that there was no quid pro quo and that “what the President actually talked about was entirely proper.”
The White House argues that Trump “did not mention Rudy Giuliani or Vice President Biden until after President Zelenskyy had raised Giuliani first.” But the email glosses over the fact that Trump did mention Biden of his own accord.
