Squid Goes Pro-gate
Hey guys, remember that time The Donald threw Mike Pence (the walking termite buffet) under the bus, saying that everyone should ask for Pence’s transcript of his phone call with Ukraine President Zelinski?
WASHINGTON — It’s been almost three weeks since Vice President Mike Pence said he had “no objection” to releasing a reconstructed transcript of his phone call with the leader of Ukraine. But as House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry continues moving swiftly into its second month, the White House still has not made a decision on whether to make those details of Pence’s call public.
So what’s the concern, hmmm?
One concern raised by some of Trump’s allies is that releasing his call with Zelenskiy was a mistake because it fueled the impeachment inquiry rather than tamp it down, these people said. Another is that a comparison of Pence and Trump’s calls with Zelenskiy could potentially make the president’s self-described “perfect” conversation appear significantly less so.
Gotta admit, listening to Mike Pence try to shake someone down would probably be high comedy for the man without a moral compass: “The horse has a head, it would be a shame for it to not have a head, Praise Jeebus.” — but I’m only guessing.
