President Donald Trump on Friday said he will release the transcript of another call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which took place in April, months before the July call that Democrats utilized to launch their impeachment probe. Trump told reporters the transcript will "probably" be released on Tuesday.

"They want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call, and I'm willing to provide that. We'll probably give it on Tuesday, Monday being a holiday," he said as he prepared to board Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews. "We have another transcript coming out that is very important. They ask for it, and I gladly give it."

On Saturday, Trump said the April call is "very important," CNN reported. 

"You'll read the second call, and you'll tell me if there's anything wrong with it," he said.

According to POLITICO, the president also made it very clear that he doesn't care whether or not the bogus impeachment proceedings are public or private.

"I don’t care if public — they should be public. What I said it was misreported as usual. What I said is very simple. There should not be anything. There should not be impeachment hearings," Trump said.

Democrats launched their bogus impeachment inquiry the night before Trump released the transcript of his call with Zelensky. Of course, the transcript revealed that Trump suggested Zelensky investigate the Bidens for corruption, but there was no quid pro quo. 

While Vice President Joe Biden was handling international relations with Ukraine on behalf of the Obama administration, his son, Hunter, was being paid $50,000 a month to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, despite having no natural energy experience. 

Democrats have continually said Trump wanted Zelensky to investigate and threatened to withhold military aid from the country unless that investigation took place.
