The document which the White House has been released for some time and the story you’re getting from the left is that the document says that it’s not a transcript but a memorandum and there’s a bunch of stuff kept out. I downloaded the actual transcript from the [NPR News Website](https://www.npr.org/2019/09/25/764164340/trump-asked-ukrainian-president-for-a-favor-on-biden-doj-says-no-charges) [in PDF Form](https://apps.npr.org/documents/document.html?id=6429015-Trump-Ukraine-Transcript). There is a lot of lying going on here and it is our job to point this out.
• **Nowhere does the transcript not say that it’s not a transcript** - if you have taken the time to look at the document itself it’s very clear what this document is. It says so on the first page:
>CAUTION: A Memorandum of a Telephone Conversation.· (TELCON) is not a verbatim transcript of a
Discussion. The text in this document records the notes and recollections of Situation Room Duty
“Officers and-NSC policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form
As the conversation takes place. A number of factors can affect ‘the accuracy of the record
Including poor telecommunications connections and variations in accent and/or interpretation.
The word “inaudible” is used to indicate portions of a conversation that the notetaker was unable
This is not a statement that its incomplete or missing important details: this is nothing more than a statement that the notetakers and transcribers might have missed a few words and phrases here or there due to quality of the call or issues with accents or interpretations.
• **The left is trying to turn your head with the word “memorandum”** - By claiming it’s a memorandum they’re pretending it’s not a transcription. But what is a memorandum: It is “A written record or communication.” This is the internal office communication of the telephone call between Presidents Trump and Zelenskyy. *It is both a transcription and a memorandum.*
• **The left wants to invalidate a valid transcription because when you look at it there’s nothing there** - The left is trying to give the impression there’s corruption with smoke and mirrors. By telling you that the call was a quid pro quo “and no we don’t have evidence why do you ask?” they’re trying to convince you without evidence.
Read the document yourself. Read the NPR article that’s also linked. Make a decision for yourself. No sane person can read that and assume that its anything more than a discussion between two presidents about corruption that’s happening in the midst of their respective nations.
