Schiff’s Star Witness Tried to Edit the Call Transcript

Schiff’s Star Witness Tried to Edit the Call Transcript

As the impeachment inquiry by the Democrats continues, they would like us to believe they are getting actually getting somewhere and making some much-needed process. This is evident by the sudden call for a vote on the issue in the House of Representatives after weeks of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying that such a vote isn’t needed.

But what shows this, even more, was Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s testimony about the President’s call to Ukraine on Tuesday and the media’s reaction to that testimony.

Vindman is the National Security Council’s leading expert on Ukraine and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff’s star witness.

Vindman claimed that the transcript left our certain words and key phrases, according to the New York Times. Vindman said that he offered several changes to be made to the call’s transcript. Some of those were accepted and inserted. However, two were not.

The first is that “Mr. Trump’s assertion that there were recordings of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. discussing Ukraine corruption.” The second was that “an explicit mention by Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky, of Burisma Holdings, the energy company whose board employed Mr. Biden’s son Hunter.”

Basically, Vindman offered that the transcript includes something about Trump talking about Biden talking about corruption, which was already known, and that the phrase “the company,” which was cited in the transcript, be replaced with “Burisma” to make it clear which company was being talked about.

However, The Times also added that neither of those changes would have changed the transcript all that much and most certainly would not have changed the overall outcome or understanding of it.

The Times stated, “The phrases do not fundamentally change lawmakers’ understanding of the call.

Everyone already knew what company was being mentioned, so there is no need for it to be referenced by its actual name.

As The Times explains, on the American end, no recording of the call was made. However, voice recognition software was used to create a transcript of it. And like most software of this nature, specific phrases or words, mainly names and technical phrases, can be missed or misjudged.

Therefore, the hard copy of the transcript was given to several people to be “edited” or corrected as needed.

Vindman was one such person who offered edits to his superior, National Security Council Russia and Europe director Timothy Morrison. As we mentioned before, some of his edits were taken, and others were not.

It was then after these edits were turned in that he sought out legal counsel from John A. Eisenberg about the call. According to Vindman’s testimony and the Associated Press, “I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine.”

He said, “I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma, it would likely be interpreted as a partisan paly which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained.”

But several other media outlets took these “edits” to mean that Trump’s aides or the White House had left out critical parts of the transcript and insinuated that he was trying to hide something.

Just take a look at some of the headlines put out about the testimony.

The New York Magazine’s version read: “Official Reveals Trump’s ‘Exact Call’ With Zelensky Was Edited Down.”

And the Daily Kos’ edition is even worse. It says, “Lt. Col. Vindman testifies that Trump-Zelensky call transcript is seriously incomplete.”

Seriously, incomplete?

At least The New York Times’ headline was rather straightforward. “White House Ukraine Expert Sought to Correct Transcript of Trump Call.”

These headlines and the quickness with which the story has spread throughout mainstream media lets us know that the left is trying to make a bigger deal out of this than is necessary. They want to prove to the world that Trump is hiding something and they are doing the right thing by demanding an investigation on the President.

But what has actually happened is nothing. Vindman’s testimony means just what he said, that he tried to have a few words changed here and there in the transcript. But regardless of whether or not they were changed, the meaning would have still been the same.

It’s a good thing our hard-earned tax dollars are being used on such meaningless information. Tons of progress, indeed.

  1. We all know this imp. is a hoax. Why don’t Pusly and shitfie go back to Ca. and bitch & grip. The state they are surppose to be representing is burning and they are bitching about a phone call.

      This is the DEMOCRATS RIGHT ,to show the CHILDRENS BETTER BE A REPUBLICAN THEN A LIAR DEMOCRAT !!!!!

  2. This phony Lt. Colonel needs to shuck his uniform and be what he is: A DEMOCRAT POLITICIAN
    nO MAN CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS, “COLONEL” and you have not served this coutnry by your conniving to conspire with people who want to bring down this Republic.while you are wearing the uniform. TAKE IT OFF

    1. As a member of the Armed Forces, he is conspiring to have his Commander in Chief removed from office. As such, he is a traitor and should be treated like one.

    2. Guantanamo Bay needs to build a Treason block, right beside their Terrorist block. Then, after the President gets reelected, we’ll have a place to send all these Traitors.

  3. I used to get shaking mad after reading of the blatant corruption by the Democrats, but I realize there is nothing I can do to change anything…they will continue to lie, cheat and steal while those of their followers continue to blindly follow. God is in charge and He will prevail! May God protect our President as we continue to pray for him.

    1. Dem-Coms Love ignorance, that is why they keep hammering our kids. Do yourself a favor and Google; gulagbound.com and look for their 45 goals.

  4. Are we REALLY surprised?? It looks like these morons will do ANYTHING to make their case, even if it shows them for what they truly are. Keep it up, fools; the world is laughing at you.

  5. Why aren’t these LIARS removed in HANCUFFS FROM CONGRESS for Perjury, SEDITION and TREASON? Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  6. When our framers of the Constitution laid out the format, they assumed one thing very wrong. They never expected that we would be so ignorant as a people to elect representatives to Congress that would lie and cheat to achieve their quest for power. The real clincher is where these liars and cheaters are from. The most radical of
    the bunch are from the one place we know as the most anti Trump area in the U.S., California. Schiff, Pelosi and Smallwood are all Californians. So one State is trying to destroy our governmental system and make it into another fiasco like California. We could stop this Cancer simply by selling California back to Mexico and let them deal with it. Lol

    1. yes lets stop all Federal dollars to california, for everything tthan sell them back to mexico, let the demorcrats try and run Mexico with their dumb ideas

      1. Paul Hson; Selling California back to Mexico would mean the wall would be infinitely longer. But hey, I’m all for it if it will keep both the illegal aliens AND the dems out of our government.

    2. Shiff, Pelosi, and the rest of the dems are also trying to abolish the electoral college in the hopes that doing so will enable California to be the only state to elect the president. This is also why they are FOR open borders.

  7. This Schitt motherfucker has shit for brains. Cocksucker is going to get his sorry ass kicked. The boys are coming Schitty.

  8. LOCK HIM UP! . . . Tampering with EVIDENCE. And if “SCHIFFTY SCHIFF” was in on it, then LOCK HIM UP as well! He needs to serve TIME in PRISON for SEDITION, anyway. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

    1. There is a treaty signed by Bill Clinton in 1999 between the U.S. And Ukraine that allows the president to as Ukraine to help in criminal investigations of a u.s. Citizen which are the Bidens. Until the dems pick someone to run he is not a political opponent. This whole impeachment is a sham! And a shame! He did nothing wrong. Any other President would have cracked by now but he just goes on with his job. Unbelievable b.s.

  9. Climate Change is nothing but fraud, trying to get rich off ignorant people. If the Democrats r were really educated, they would know that the climate has always revolved. It may take years but things happen again and again. For example, in my State, tornadoes happen back in the 1800’s but done occured again for sixty or eighty years. When we had a heavy snowstorm, my mother was in her sixties and had only see a few snow flurries in her life. But we have too many uneducated people who believe all these scams.

  10. ‘Editing’ has oddly been found on the General Flynn 302s,,,,, and Papadaopolis,,, and Carter Page…. seems it required a lot of ‘Editing’ to have most of the accusations’ appear valid! It’s almost like the actual head investigator on the Mueller team had the same problem before where the Supreme Court over turned his cases… its almost like “Mueller” was just a facade… it is now like the CIA personnel and Deep State operators change statement every-time… and Schiff met with the whistle bowers to engineer their coming statements…
    sure takes a lot of ‘editing’ doesn’t it?
