After White House denial, CNN scrubs report on alarming leak from Biden's call with Ukrainian president

Chaos erupted online after CNN ran with a leaked report about alleged statements President Joe Biden made to the president of Ukraine in a phone call amidst rising tension from the possibility of a Russian invasion.

Biden spoke with President Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday about the threat from Russia but a leaked report claimed that he told Zelensky an invasion was virtually certain and that the country should "prepare for impact."

Biden also told them that the capital of Kyiv could be "sacked" by the Russians, according to the disputed report.

That report was regurgitated by numerous CNN reporters, and covered by Jake Tapper on his show on the Cable News Network before the White House said the claims were false. He cited a Ukrainian official as a source for the story.

The official account for the "The Lead" tweeted the video of Tapper's report and then deleted it. Later, they reposted the video report and added that the White House had disputed the account.

Why would CNN send its own (presumably well sourced) report to the Memory Hole?

Are they just shills for the Democrat Party?

Release the transcripts.

This is so serious, given the possibility of war, that transcripts will have to be released and investigations begun.

Amazing how CNN just up and believed the WH when they were antagonistic towards Trump. Why isn’t CNN instead launching into more investigations on this?

Da! Is unfortunate misunderstanding. Biden asked Zelensky how many Ukrainian hookers Hunter sacked in Kiev.

It’s not enough to send the Biden Crime Family to prison. We’ll still be stuck with 81m moronic voters who are a clear and present danger to the rest of us.

#ReleaseTheTranscript, Brandon.

Pity that Col. Vindman retired and is no longer on the NSC to leak the contents of the call...

Propaganda arm of the DemoKKKrat party is more like it. But you knew that, it was a rhetorical question I'm guessing and I just needed to vent. :-)

A spokesperson for Zelensky released a statement backing the claims of the White House that the leaked report was untrue.

"Dear colleagues! Some reports regarding the content of the talks between Presidents Volodymyr Zelensky and Joe Biden have appeared on social media, citing the alleged 'senior Ukrainian official.' These messages are completely false," read the statement.
