Should President Trump release transcript of call with Ukraine’s president?


FOX NEWS.>>Shannon: SO FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN HAS MAINTAINED THAT HIS SON’S BUSINESS DEALINGS HAD NO IMPACT ON HIS POLICIES. WHEN BIDEN WAS STILL VICE PRESIDENT, HE TOLD THE ATLANTIC IN AUGUST 2016 ABOUT THIS EPISODE. HE SAID I PUSHED HIM ON GETTING RID OF A CORRUPT PROSECUTOR GENERAL. WE HAD COMMITTED A BILLION DOLLARS. I SAID YOU’RE NOT GETTING YOUR BILLION DOLLARS. THAT STORY COMPLICATED BY THE FACT THAT BIDEN’S SON, HUNTER AND HIS BUSINESS PARTNER’S FIRM WERE REPORTEDLY PART OF A BROAD EFFORT BY IN WELL-CONNECTED DEMOCRATS IN A PERIOD WHEN THE COMPANY WAS FACING INVESTIGATIONS, NOT JUST BY DOMESTIC UKRAINIAN FORCES BUT BY OFFICIALS IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. THAT’S ALL ACCORDING TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” TALK ABOUT IT WITH DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST, KEVIN WALLING AND BLACK BLAKEMAN. WELCOME ON THIS FRIDAY NIGHT.>>HI, SHANNON. GOOD EVENING.>>Shannon: LET’S START WITH THIS. THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT, BIDEN, HAS ISSUED A STATEMENT SAYING — TALKING ABOUT THE PRESIDENT. “THIS BEHAVIOR IS ABHORRENT. DONALD TRUMP SHOULD RELEASE THE TRANSCRIPTS OF THE CALL IN QUESTION.” BRAD, A SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL IS TELLING US THAT HE MIGHT JUST DO THAT BECAUSE THE MEDIA IS OVERPLAYING WHAT THIS WAS.>>I THINK IF THE ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL WAS READ THESE DOCUMENTS, IT’S IN THE PRESIDENT’S INTEREST TO RELEASE THEM, HE SHOULD. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT. YOU HAVE AN UNNAMED FACELESS BUREAUCRAT THAT HAS SUBJECTED HIS INTERPRETATION OF A PRESIDENTIAL COMMUNICATION WITH A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT. SUBJECTING HIS OWN PERSONAL BENT ON IT TO A CONSTITUTIONAL FIGURE, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THIS IS UNHEARD OF. I DON’T WANT TO SET A PRECEDENT FOR IT.>>Shannon: ISN’T THAT WHAT WHISTLE-BLOWERS ARE SUPPOSED TO DO? THERE WAS A FRAME WORK PUT IN PLACE –>>HOW DID THAT GET TO THE PUBLIC? THAT’S THE PROBLEM HERE. HOW DID THIS COMPLAINT GET TO THE PUBLIC? IT HURT OR FOREIGN POLICY, THE PRESIDENT’S ABILITY TO CONDUCT IT. BY THE WAY, THIS IS THE CHICKEN AND THE EGG. JOE BIDEN BRIBING THE UKRAINIANS. THEY’RE NOT GROWING TO GET THE MONEY THAT IS DUE THEM UNLESS AND UNTIL A PROSECUTOR THAT IS INVESTIGATING HIS SON WAS FIRED. GUESS WHAT? HE WAS FIRED. UKRAINIANS GOT THE MONEY. SO I WOULD CAUTION DEMOCRATS. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. YOU WANT TO START ANOTHER WITCH HUNT? THE PRESIDENT WILL BE VICTORIOUS AGAIN.>>Shannon: REGARDLESS OF WHERE THIS GOES WITH BIDEN’S SLICE OF THE STORY, HE HAS TO NOW STILL ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT. IT DOES DREDGE THIS UP. THE “WALL STREET JOURNAL” REPORTING ON THIS SAYING ACCORDING TO THEIR SOURCE, MR. TRUMP DID NOT MENTION A PROVISION OF U.S. AID TO UKRAINE ON THE CALL. THERE WAS NOT QUID PRO QUO FOR HIS COOPERATION. IF THAT PLAYS OUT TO BE TRUE, THIS IS MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.>>THERE WERE CONCERNS RAISED BY THE WHISTLE-BLOWERS. WE DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. WE DON’T KNOW THAT THERE ARE ANY POLITICAL MOTIVATIONS AS THE PRESIDENT SAID IN THE PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY. WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THERE WAS SOME PROMISE MADE IN THE CALL THAT RAISED AN ALARM WITH AN INTELLIGENCE OFFICIAL. IT DIRECTED THEM TO GO THROUGH THEIR CHANNELS TO RAISE THIS CONCERN TO THE INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATORS AT THE DNI’S OFFICE. SO THIS PROCESS IS PLAYING OUT THE WAY IT SHOULD IN THAT AGENCY AND WE NEED TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT.>>Shannon: THERE CALLS FOR IT TO GO PUBLIC, THE COMPLAINT AND THE CALL. AT LEAST IN PART BECAUSE THERE’S SOME NATIONAL SECURITY INTERESTS. EVERYTHING IN WASHINGTON HAS BLACK LINES THROUGH IT. SEAN DAVIS TWEETING THIS. THE LATEST MEDIA MANUFACTURED FAUX SCANDAL. FINAL WORD FROM YOU BOTH.>>I THINK THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING DOWN ANOTHER SLIPPERY SLOPE. YOU HAVE SOMETHING LIKE ADAM SCHIFF THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE. HE’S THE ONE THAT SAID THAT THEY HAD EVIDENCE THAT THE PRESIDENT COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSIANS. HE HAD NO EVIDENCE. THE PRESIDENT WAS CLEARED OF ANY COLLUSION CHARGES. SO DEMOCRATS WANT TO HARP ON A “NEW YORK TIMES” STORY AFTER THEY WERE DEBUNKED A WEEK AGO? THAT HAD NO FACTUAL BASIS TO A STORY? NO. I THINK DEMOCRATS SHOULD PROCEED WITH CAUTION.>>Shannon: KEVIN, YOU THINK DEMOCRATS ARE LIKE THE BOY THAT CRIED WOLF. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT IS THE BOMB SHELL THAT IT’S ME SENTED TO BE.>>I NEVER CALLED FOR THIS PRESIDENT TO BE IMPEACHED. I THINK I’M A REASONABLE DEMOCRAT. I THINK WE NEED TO SHOW WHERE THE EVIDENCE LEADS. LET’S GET IT OUT IN THE OPEN. LET’S ALSO MAKE SURE THAT A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ISN’T REQUESTING THE ASSISTANCE OF A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO ATTACK A POLITICAL OPPONENT.>>Shannon: WHETHER IT’S BIDEN OR TRUMP?

  1. Anyone else remember when this piece of excrement potus said "I am the most transparent president in history". Won't show his taxes. Won't show his school transcripts. Has his bootlicking cabinet minions ignoring subpoenas. And now works at hiding this whistleblower complaint. And all the while feeding his "base" an endless litany of lies, with the able assistance of fox "news". The level of stupidity required to support this maggot is beyond belief.

  2. What's the point ? Trump will lie anyways. Trump is a snake and will do anything legal or not to win. USA , you made your bed , now lay in it.

  3. President Trump talks privately with foreign leaders because that's what Presidents do. .. Sue Gordon, or whoever the leaker is, needs arrested for leaking. She leaked to WaPo and then they lied and said she went to the Justice department. Such BS. And we already know Biden & his son sold our secrets to the Chinese & they had something going on in Ukraine as well. Bring us the four Ukrainian officials with the goods on Biden, Hillary & Obama! Ukraine helped try and frame President Trump!

  4. Biden, Clinton, Obama, and Kerry – CORRUPT!!!! Everyone knows this – and they have been working against the US all along. I think the President knew that this would become public because he wanted Biden and his son should be investigated.

  5. Ukranians are being prosecuted for things concerning our 2016 election already. They have been denied visas in order to come here to discuss and show evidence of that corruption involving american citizens. It is time for this to be investigated fully here and over there. Hopefully it is even if behind the scenes. But people do not give President Trump the same courtesy as our past presidents to have relationships and his privilege to decide investigations. He is the executive branch head. He is not given any credit for the extensive cooperation with the Mueller investigation. That investigation team bragged about the massive number of pages received, number of investigators, interviews, and resources used toward the people surrounding Trump. More people than not want the investigations into our president over. For once can we wait for the facts to be gathered completely before all the screaming "this is it" "he is really in trouble this time" then whisper "we got it wrong again". Are there any others besides the squad, schiff and nadler working up there?

  6. He realized classified pictures, he declassified on “on the fly with tweeter “ why not releasing the transcript? He has given information to other countries already, what is the big deal? He doesn’t have anything to hide, right? Put this issue to bed and continue going on rallies collecting the money of the people which taxes were good last year and those who ended up borrowing to pay the IRS.

  7. he no need the evidence are very clear he is the best President in history and the evil Demirats are the best liars in history and the corrupt news ever Trump 20/20 Trump Trump Trump

  8. Democrats are experts at giving US TAXPAYER money to others while the US People have Debts of $150 Trillion. Biden is the sneaking Joe who puts himself first.

  9. Hello Ukaraine prez, Creepy Uncle Joe here. Can you give my Loser son Hunter and his pal John Kerry's step son a cushy job? You're a Dad Prez too, you know how these kids are today with their drugs and sleeping with the brother's widow. Next thing you know he'll be back in my basement playing video games. Thanks Prez I'll get you a few Billion from the Big O.

  10. No. It's like when a dirty cop tries to search your car without cause. You tell them no even if you have nothing on you. It's the point that they are trying to do it through the wrong channels and the media should not have even heard about it at all. Someone leaked and probably lied as well

  11. Trump is playing the Demorats like a well tuned violin… Set out some bait to get the [email protected] demorats to investigate his phone call with Ukraine which actually will bring out Biden and his son involvement in a Billion dollar deal. WWG1WGA

  12. Trump has bigger fish to fry. They have Joe Biden red-handed on tape,remniniscing about strong-arming the Ukranians and getting the prosecutor fired that was investigating Biden's son.His son left a crack-pipe in a rental car along with federal id's and papers. This is all on record,what need POTUS add to it ?

  13. Nice going Russia, u can dictate who can be the president of US of A, master stroke after losing the cold war, u might get to win the war after all.

  14. No Shannon, we all don't agree on that cos corrupt Joe Biden already did it and got what he wanted so he should be investigated and impeached.
    We are tired of playing defense and pandering to the Left's double standards!
    Why is no one asking what should happen to Joe if him and his son are found guilty? The evidence is out there already and Joe isn't denying it, he is instead attacking Trump and Fox is playing along. Wow!

  15. Sounds like Trump might be onto something. It also sounds like the Obama administration was in it up to their eye balls. Also a debtor nation should not be guaranteeing a billion in loans to anyone. This should have been reported by the media and prosecuted long before now.

  16. Soon everyone will know that through Biden's son as a go between the Chinese paid billions to control our government, John Kerry's son also received billions. The Chinese our tossing out Billions I wonder if they are paying off CNN, NBC, WAPO and NY times. Maybe our Intel agents are getting a chunk of cash. The Chinese are extremely rich and they will fill anybodies pockets to achieve dominance necessary

  17. Schiff must have leaked it . He leaks like a siv . Look at all the leaks he made on the Mueller report . And stated that He had evidence of Collusion but has never showed anything . And lied to America

  18. I could care less, I watched Obama offer to be flexible with Russia, I watched Biden threaten to take away 1 billion dollars if they didnt fire the prosecutor investigating his son.

  19. No he should not. What he discusses with foreign leaders should not be published. He has that right to speak to anyone and about anything he wants. Biden should not have put himself in that position with his son.

  20. Adam Schiff has evidence. Adam Schiff has "more than circumstantial" evidence. Adam Schiff has mountains of collusion evidence. We just can't see it because it exists only in the vacuum between his ears.

  21. How is it that the first political "whistleblower" in recent history to not subsequently have their home raided by the FBI, and then be prosecuted under the espionage act, just coincidentally is reporting something that if true would be damaging to the president? Even though it sounds like whatever it was is just a subjective interpretaction of what they were hoping it really was. Past government whistleblowers who actually had real evidence of criminal activity committed by various departments and individuals and who were reporting those activities out of genuine concern for what they discovered, have all been villafied, prosecuted and silenced

  22. here we go again.  no proof and no name of the whistleblower—-Look what Trump has had to go through because of lies democrats put out there.  Now this.  The source sad Trump did not promise anything so what is the crime that has not been proven.  Trump was wired tapped and nothing has been done about that….yet.  democrats make me sick and I used to be one, so glad I changed parties.

  23. Fake media and the dems are hypocrites. Biden can threaten and save his son, remember Obama’s public massage to Putin: allowed him to annex Crimea. Where’s the fake media and liberal loons.
    Mr. president please reopen Biden sons alleged corrupt case.

  24. Republicans & Fox News really need to stop covering all the stories & lies that the Democrats keep coming up with. It just encourages them. If ya want to stick it to them, just discuss our great economy and everything good Trump is doing. Look ahead, not back !!

  25. You know why Brayden is making such a fuss over this.
    he's so worried that the truth will come out he confessed it already on camera he knows he knows the truth and it's not going to be any good for him so he wants to paint Trump is doing the very thing that he's done so it's a wash
    no it's not a wash biting his guilty in trumpism and Biden can't stand the fact that we're going to find that out.
    I'd advise Trump not to say anything don't open the transcript let them all stew in this for a while and then dropped a cannonball

  26. I don’t care if politicians are corrupt as long as they get the job done they always have been corrupt and They always will be

  27. That faceless person did what he’s suppose to do, if the dummy president is putting our democracy on the line the call should be examined for it contents. Then proceed with whatever charges that are appropriate for the president or the whistleblower.

  28. NO…Stop harassing our President! i felt sorry for uncle joe for a minute, nail him and his corrupt son to the cross i am sick and tired of these thieving psychopaths.

  29. This story is trying to promote and create a rivalry between the 2 candidates for 2020 elections which most people don't want I have a simple solution Bernie 2020

  30. Trump is not going to release the transcript no more than he released his tax returns! If there was a whistleblower during the Obama Years Fox hosts would be screaming!

  31. Additionally, Trump said he would receive foreign help again even though it has been deemed wrong! If Trump did nothing wrong as he has said then release the transcript and let the American people decide!

  32. no. that was easy. you see, AMERICANS, which does not include most who live in America, require that the ACCUSER PROVE his claims. once again, we have an anonymous source claiming "orange man bad" with ZERO public proof. This is called "sedition", unless it is proven. The dark state and msm are TRAITORS who have CONSTANTLY attacked this potus with abject nonsense, to a largely illiterate, uneducated populace which chants whatever accusations it hears. before you WHINE at me with your lazy stupidity, understand the following: I DID NOT WANT THE TRAMP AS POTUS. YOU, the uneducated, immoral, anti-Americans, FORCED him upon us. choke on that, useful idiots.

  33. Hint the reason for this whole conversation. Trump will troll you hard, if you run blind in a 5 foot hallway you deserve a flat face!

  34. This is what's really terrible. Thirty MILLION dollars of tax payer money is soon to result in facts and perjury with no prosicution. Look the left is now taking a citezens 2nd amandment right without a trial. Scary how can we defend our selves if you have no knowledge of your second amandment right being taken away not even knowing or defending yourself!

  35. I think it's beyond ridiculous that our president can't speak to a foreign leader openly without fear that a transcript will end up on the front page of the Washington (DNC) Post!!!

  36. Trump has gotten us out of the clean air accord, deregulated safe water and food and selling protected land thru out this country in the name of greed. Even tho his supporters along with their children will suffer the effects for generations to come. He have the highest support from white males, yet women were raised to be nurtures, compassionate and unselfish to a degree… just can't understand a breed of people that will disown their family and friends to blindly follow a sadist to the depth of hell.

  37. Whoa, whoa, whoa! President Trump is NOT asking Ukrainian Pres to get dirt on an opponent!!! Do you remember we are STILL going through a witch hunt after Trump??? We are SUPPOSED to be finding out the roots of it!! Mueller should have looked into Ukraine and Biden!! But, of course, he didn't because he wasn't looking for Truth!! Do you think Trump is supposed to just keep taking whatever they dish out to him?? OMG!!! If a candidate fro PRESIDENT is guilty of such corruption as EXTORTION don't you think American voters deserve to know about it???? I think Shannon's remarks at the end of the segment are SCANDALOUS!! I think we Americans ought to get SOMETHING for our $40 million!!

  38. The President is within his rights to speak with foreign governments. The Intel is supposed to be working for him, whether Adam Schiff (leaky) likes it or not. Trump was framed by bad actors, Hillary, Obama, Joe Biden, starting in Ukraine. Memos, EMAILS and tapes all reveal these crimes to be true in which the fake news does not have access to. Which means they listen to corrupt people like Adam Schiff and the cabal. Listen people I have read many documents, thanks to Judicial Watch and the Democrats in Congress, the FBI, Hillary, Obama, and the Intel liars are caught in there lies. It all has been documented, with these clowns signatures. No Documents on Trump and campaign showing malfeasance, none. Except by lying Wasermman. A man know to lie in every case he had. I'm an ordinary citizen and I have seen enough. How many clowns do you people have? Most of us are not as stupid as you think. Watch and see.

  39. if trump release his conversation with a foreign leader, that will finish him as far as ever speaking to any foreign government again, how could they trust him

  40. This particular Fox Interviewer apparently would be happier should she be on an anti-Prez, anti-GOP news station.
    I guess some folks would praise FOX on her handling of this story.
    I’m not impressed. The facts are obvious. And she’s looking for an error done by our President where there is none on this topic.

  41. Who cares? Just another day in the campaign to oust trump…..he will win a 3rd term when we all write his name on the ballot…hehe..

  42. Should Joe Biden accept Billions of dollars in bribes from China and Ukraine through his son?
    Drop the BS already, this President has been looked at in all directions…IT'S TIME TO GIVE THE ORGANIZED CRIME STRUCTURE ON THE LEFT/DEEP STATE A GOOD CHECK.
    TIME FOR A RECKONING.

  43. Typical Fox News……don’t cover the actual story, just work up more conspiracy theories and deflect.

    We all know that Dumb Donald is a crook, release the transcript.

  44. Hm, so focus on Biden. Fine, wish that they look into the matter even though no one found anything the last time. The sitting President is the one in power though – and might have demanded a foreign nation to help him out, personally, to smear Biden.That's not legal you know. Sometimes it isn't Obamas, Hillarys or (perhaps, though probably) fault. If you stand by Trump and democracy this must be taken seriously, investigated and lead to a conclusion. To not be transparent means that its some wrongdoing. It doesn't matter if previous investigation didn't prove anything or not, and Biden is actually a separate case. They are not connected. And please no, the dems are traitors, fake news, Hillary, Obama, communism. That's childish and ignorant. But don't attack the little democracy their is by not questioning the highest power – you would have applauded this news if it was about a democratic President I'm sure

  45. Wow ! Wall Street Journal really did address U.S.A. Leader with MR. and called a foreign leader president. Awe.., the true alliance..,

  46. At the discretion of the President other people have no right to know what he said to a foreign leader. It may be security sensitive, it may be commercially sensitive and it may have been personal… Also, words in themselves are no actions and should not be conflated with actions – this is relevant to the "need to know"…

  47. How long has Don the Con been fighting not to have to release the tax returns he promised to release if elected? No chance he will allow the transcript to be released.
