Moving the goalposts? MSNBC's Chris Hayes suggests transcript of Trump-Ukraine call could be bogus
Fox News ^ | September 24, 2019 | Brian Flood

Posted on 09/25/2019 4:40:17 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

MSNBC host Chris Hayes isn’t sure Americans can trust the transcript of President Trump’s controversial call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, so he turned to Twitter to smear it in advance.

Trump announced on Tuesday that he would release the full transcript of the call, in which they reportedly discussed an investigation involving 2020 Democratic hopeful Joe Biden's kin. But the liberal pundit pre-emptively raised doubts about the transcript's veracity, because of how the president “pressures and manipulates” his staff.

“Given what we know about how Trump pressures and manipulates civil servants to toe his line, I'm not *quite* sure we can trust the transcript itself as being accurate/comprehensive,” Hayes tweeted on Tuesday.

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News he isn’t surprised that an anti-Trump cable news host would attempt to discredit the transcript in advance -- just in case it turns out to help the president fend off a whistleblower's allegations.

Most of the media know, in their black hearts, that they’ve screwed the pooch. It’s a bit hilarious to see. Road Runner Trump scores another one.

Of *course* that will be the chant...bogus,bogus,bogus! But another possibility is “the use of a semicolon in line two represents irrefutable proof...”

Presumption of guilt. On everything.

The president colludes, pressures foreign governments, is corrupt, and alters transcripts to hide his guilt.

No evidence required for any of this. The media just “knows” he’s guilty and that’s enough.

Let's admit it folks...we knew six months ago (or more) that he'd be impeached and “treason” just might sound better to “independents” than does “collusion”.

Face it, no amount of exculpatory evidence will convince the leftists to drop it. They are the proverbial kids throwing a tantrum in the store. They didn’t get their way, so they are screaming, crying, pleading, and now holding their breath... Facts don’t matter. Maybe everyone else got this a long time ago but it occurs to me this behavior will never stop. The leftists have nothing else to do. Sure, the could push for some other anti-American BS on their agenda. But they know they will never get it through the Senate or past President Trump. So there is literally nothing else on their to-do list than make trouble for President Trump. This snipe hunt for impeachment and removal is all we are going to see as long as Trump is President. Personally, that disgusts me. I didn’t put up with tantrums from my kids, and I expect one he** of a lot more adult behavior from elected representatives. I intend to vote against every single ‘rat for the rest of my life. This is petty, obstructive, and wasteful.

The narrative is that the President is guilty. Anything which indicates guilt must be believed without question. Anything which absolves the president is obviously doctored, altered, or otherwise obviously bogus.

The narrative above all!

Sooo Predictable. DemocRATS always try to move the Goal Post when desperate. And the DemocRATS are desperate.

But Trump has an ACE! He has the Intelligence Community release the Transcript.

Zing! Upper Cut!

Here's a little tidbit for Hayes to chew on (cackle)

Question: Was Clinton Foundation mega-donor Viktor Pinchuk being investigated WRT theft of IMF $5 billion
simultaneously with the investigation into Hunter Biden’s $3 million Burisma salary?

SALIENT POINT: The Ukrainian prosecutor Joe Biden forced out was investigating all the Ukrainian money being stolen;
he was fired when Joe Biden twisted his arm for investigating Hunter Biden’s extortion.

HMMMMMMM....Could be Obama kicked Joe’s *** ...... peeved their cut was Hunter's measly $3 million out of the missing $5 billion?

REFERECE: VP Biden Set Up Scenario for Meeting Between Top Ukrainian Officials and His Son’s Company
FR Posted on 9/23/2019, 10:48:00 PM by janetjanet998

Quoting John Solomon: Let me add a new fact that I just learned tonight. While talking to US diplomats today overseas in Europe I learned that on April 22, 2014 less than three weeks before the Burisma Holdings announced that Hunter Biden was joining their board, Vice President Joe Biden met with the Prime Minister of Ukraine ......

.......and in that meeting, according to a that I obtained tonight.......

Joe Biden specifically encouraged the Ukrainians to expand natural gas production with the help of Americans coming to the country.

The VP set up the exact scenario that Hunter Biden just a few weeks later cashed in on.

I'm somewhat surprised that veteran polical operatives can't/didn't see the setup. The way all the Senators just went oh yeah we want to see the transcript too. Nothing smelled off to them?

This reeks of stupidity laced desperation.

If not word needs to go forward to house members its their neck on the line if they impeach a sitting president for bogus reasons.

This is good.

It keeps the controversy alive.

Next, President Trump, at the appropriate moment, releases the recording.

Then, when they say that is fake, He and President Volodymyr Zelensky do an online live session.

Of course, the Democrats have to play along by being idiots, continuously.

It shouldn't be too hard!

I imagine that the little, lying children haven’t considered that another country also has the same transcript.

It’s more than moving a goalpost. It’s pure evil.
