Trump has been screaming READ THE TRANSCRIPT so I have done it-again.

Let’s do it together:

“I will say that we do a lot for Ukraine. We spend a lot of effort and a lot of time. … The United States has been very ·very good to Ukraine. I wouldn’t say that it’s reciprocal necessarily because things are happening that are not good but the United States has been very very good to Ukraine.”

Zelensky then thanks Trump.

“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. … The server, they say Ukraine has it. ”

Then Trump continues:

“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.”

Now go ahead and tell me…does this sound like bribery too you? Badly hidden bribery? I have a bulge in my pocket, and you see it, together with a handle…

No, it does not sound like bribery to me. He never said that we were about to withdraw aid if they do not initiate the investigation. That is the key thing.

Yeah, and Zelensky has an IQ below 80, so he could not understand it without being explicitly told.
