Democrats’ Trump-Ukraine Narrative Continues to Collapse: Their Leaked ‘Smoking Gun’ Text Message BLOWS UP IN THEIR FACES
The Trump-Ukraine ‘scandal’ is rapidly collapsing.
On Thursday, the media ran screaming headlines crucifying Trump over encrypted text messages between US Ambassadors showing a quid pro quo ‘dispute’ over Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
The Democrats and their stenographers in the media focused on a ‘smoking gun’ text message sent from Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine Bill Taylor — but within 24 hours it all blew up in their faces.
Fox News obtained encrypted text messages sent between Ukrainian envoy Kurt Volker and other US officials such US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland and Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine Bill Taylor.
The text messages show US Ambassador to the EU defending Trump and making it clear there was no quid pro quo in the President’s communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
But the text message that the Democrats and the media hyped up was sent from the Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine Bill Taylor.
“As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” Taylor said in a September 9 text exchange.
What the Democrats and their media sycophants failed to report is that the September 9 text message from Bill Taylor was in reference to an August 28 Politico article, NOT because he had any independent information.
Volker’s testimony to lawmakers crushed the Democrats’ quid pro quo argument against President Trump.
Recall, Adam Schiff also tweeted about this Politico article on August 28 (screenshot below):
GOP House Oversight Committee slammed fake news CNN reporter Ryan Struyk for posting Bill Taylor’s September 9 text message out of context.
“It’s deceitful for Democrats to release these cherry-picked texts without full context of Voker’s testimony,” Oversight Committee Republicans said in a tweet.
Fake News CNN reporter Ryan Struyk ended up deleting his tweet in shame.
We noticed the original tweet was deleted after we posted our fact check.

Wall Street Journal editor Kimberly Strassel said it perfectly.
“When Dems released a manicured selection of text messages last night, first thought was: Will press corps be irresponsible enough to jump on them, without context? Silly question! Of course it did.”

Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee ramped up their attacks on Chairman Adam Schiff on Friday after IC Inspector General Michael Atkinson revealed to lawmakers that the ‘whistleblower’ never told him that he met with Adam Schiff’s committee staffers.
The entire Trump-Ukraine ‘scandal’ is built on lies from the Deep State which are then delivered to Democrat lawmakers and propelled by leaks to the fake news media.
