I am looking forward to the individual that leaked classified information to be going to jail.
What they are calling the "transcript" isn't a transcript, it's memo, produced by the White House, describing the call.Lindsay and Romney are having a spat war on this...Graham is playing the news shows and Romney is staying silent.
Sen. Lindsey AGraham (R-S.C.) thinks the transcript of President Trump's Ukraine call is a giant nothingburger. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah.) disagrees.
After the White House released the memorandum of Trump's call with Ukraine's president, in which he pressed for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, Romney told reporters that "what we’ve seen from the transcript itself is deeply troubling," per CBS' Alan He. Romney wouldn't say whether he believes the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry is appropriate.
Graham went the opposite direction, rallying behind Trump by tweeting that the transcript is "a nothing (non-quid pro quo) burger." The South Carolina senator also told reporters, "From my point of view, to impeach any president over a phone call like this would be insane," adding that Ukraine's president "did not feel threatened" and "felt fine with what happened" and that what Trump said was "very appropriate."
House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), meanwhile, sides with Graham, in a statement saying "there was absolutely no quid pro quo" on the call.
At the same time, Democrats doubled down on their calls for impeachment, arguing there was an implicit quid pro quo on the call, with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeting, "The president of the United States has betrayed our country. That's not a political statement — it's a harsh reality, and we must act." Brendan Morrow".
Lindsey Graham calls the Ukraine transcript 'very appropriate.' Mitt Romney says it's 'deeply troubling.'
Apparently Trump indeed asked fpr help even in the redacted memo. Romney says he is "Taking Steps" right now....whatever that means.

Yup...things they be a changin'
Umm, that's exactly what you are doing with this stupid question. YOu need an investigation before people vote for impeachmentIf you think there is an actual impeachment vote coming then say so. Otherwise you are just trolling.

"“As more information has emerged about whistleblower allegations against President Trump, support for impeachment proceedings has grown to its highest point since the beginning of the summer,” Sinclair said. “This week’s news cycle had a significant impact on Republicans and independents, giving credibility to Democrats' impeachment inquiry. Up from 5 percent last week, 10 percent of Republicans now support beginning impeachment proceedings, while support among independents has reached 39 percent.”
