Not everyone at The Wall Street Journal peddled the false points about the Trump-Ukraine phone call that supposedly was going to be the death of his presidency. The allegations were that Trump had some quid pro quo with the Ukrainian leadership, that he wanted them to investigate Biden’s son for corruption, and that he might tie this move with aid to the country (via WSJ):

President Trump in a July phone call repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden ’s son, according to people familiar with the matter, urging Volodymyr Zelensky about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani on a probe that could hamper Mr. Trump’s potential 2020 opponent.

“He told him that he should work with [Mr. Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know” if his lawyer’s assertions that Mr. Biden acted improperly as vice president were true, one of the people said. Mr. Giuliani has suggested Mr. Biden’s pressure on Ukraine to fight corruption had to do with an investigation of a gas company for which his son was a director. A Ukrainian official this year said he had no evidence of wrongdoing by Mr. Biden or his son Hunter Biden.

Mr. Trump in the call didn’t mention a provision of U.S. aid to Ukraine, said this person, who didn’t believe Mr. Trump offered the Ukrainian president any quid pro quo for his cooperation on any investigation.

The interactions between the president, Mr. Giuliani and Ukraine have come under scrutiny in recent days in the wake of a whistleblower complaint that a person familiar with the matter said involves the president’s communications with a foreign leader. The complaint, which the Washington Post reported centers on Ukraine, has prompted a new standoff between Congress and the executive branch.

Well, first, the president can say whatever he wants to a foreign leader and it’s not the job of the intelligence community to snitch on the president concerning communications like this. It’s a gross overreach. Anyone who isn’t a semi-mentally defective anti-Trump Democrat could see this from at least 1,000 miles away. This story was trash, the allegations were fake, and it wouldn’t lead to Trump being in hot water. Once again, the Trump White House came out on top. Once again, anonymous and politically biased sources tried to deliver a death blow to the Trump White House. It failed. 

In the publication’s op-ed section, columnist Kimberley Strassel, who has torched many of the liberal talking points peddled by the Left in their years-long crusade to impeach Trump, went on a lengthy Twitter thread dissecting the latest spate of nonsensical allegations lobbed at the Trump White House over this phone call. One, Trump was asking Ukraine for assistance in a U.S. investigation into 2016 election meddling, and it was the Ukrainians that brought up Biden. This is another “non-smoking gun.” Also, it proved that everyone got this story totally and utterly wrong. 

And now these clowns want to push impeachment over an allegation shoddier that the Trump-Russia collusion myth? Cancer thy name is Democrat.
