Trump Criticizes Impeachment Hoax, Says People Should Read Transcript of Ukraine Call

President Donald Trump said that the impeachment inquiry against him is a hoax and urged people to read the transcript of his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to see what they spoke about.

A series of current and former State Department officials, among others who are working or did work in the administration, have been testifying behind closed doors in the inquiry led by House Democrats.

The probe hasnt been authorized by a vote. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced on Oct. 28 that the House would vote on Thursday on the process of the inquiry.

Trump took to Twitter early Monday to criticize the effort, urging people multiple times to read the transcript of his call with Zelensky themselves.

“Wheres the Whistleblower? Just read the Transcript, everything else is made up garbage by Shifty Schiff and the Never Trumpers!” he said in one missive.

How many more Never Trumpers will be allowed to testify about a perfectly appropriate phone call when all anyone has to do is READ THE TRANSCRIPT! I knew people were listening in on the call (why would I say something inappropriate?), which was fine with me, but why so many?

Pelosi announced the inquiry based on a complaint filed by an anonymous person based on the phone call. Trumps White House the same week released a transcript of the call.

“The Do Nothing Democrats are working hard to make everyone forget the Best Economy Ever, the monumental weekend raid, Tax Cuts, the Rebuilding of our Military, etc. The Impeachment Hoax is a disgrace. Read the transcript!” Trump wrote in another post.

“How many more Never Trumpers will be allowed to testify about a perfectly appropriate phone call when all anyone has to do is READ THE TRANSCRIPT! I knew people were listening in on the call (why would I say something inappropriate?), which was fine with me, but why so many?” he added.
