Holy smokes. This transcript is only deepens the problems for @realDonaldTrump. He implored the Ukrainian President to investigate the Bidens. Trump also repeatedly asked that the president speak with @RudyGiuliani and, shockingly, AG Barr, about it!

STAGGERING: Transcript shows Trump urging Ukraine to work with Atty Gen. Barr(!) and Giuliani in pursuit of dirt on political opponents. Bashes US officials. Reveals a president with little concern for American interests, only his own: https://t.co/WIE45pmwyq

The White House thought this account of the call was going to *help* the president.

If this is NOT a verbatim transcript…what must the REAL THING entail?

The released transcript is enough to impeach and remove a president from office. And this is the part of the picture the White House thought was least damaging to its cause.
Trump needs to go and he needs to go now.
