Wow, CNN Admits Democrats Lied About Trump's Ukraine Call

In order to impeach the president, Democrats have to lie about the facts. It has now come to the point where even CNN is calling the Democrats out on their lies.

Two Democratic representatives from Texas, Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson Lee, both lied during debate on articles of impeachment on Thursday about what President Trump said during his phone call to the president of Ukraine.

Rep. Escobar said President Trump told President Zelensky, "I want you to do me a favor though." 

Rep. Jackson Lee quoted Trump saying, "I would like you to do a favor though."

What Trump actually said was "I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot." The full quote makes it clear that Trump was asking the president of Ukraine to do "our country" a favor. 

Even CNN had to admit the president was right (Via CNN):

President Trump alleged that Democratic Reps. Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson Lee “purposely misquoted” his call with the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in a Tweet this morning.

Facts First: Trump is correct that the call was misquoted during today's debate over the articles of impeachment in the House Judiciary committee.

In the declassified memo of the July 25 phone call between Trump and President Zelensky, the President says, “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot.”

Of course, the headline CNN used, "Fact check: Trump says Democrats misquoted his call. He's correct," has a lot less vitriol than other CNN headlines like, "Lies, lies, lies: How Trump's fiction gets more dramatic over time." But at least they got the facts right this time.
