Trump-Ukraine Call Log Clearly Demonstrates Quid Pro Quo Demand

Trump-Ukraine Call Log Clearly Demonstrates Quid Pro Quo Demand


WELCOME TO “THE LATE SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN–
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
GET OUT YOUR SEXTANTS, YOUR COMPASS, YOUR ASTROLABES BECAUSE
WE ARE IN UNCHARTED WATERS. BECAUSE AFTER TWO AND A HALF
YEARS OF THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY, WE FINALLY SPOTTED THE GREAT
ORANGE WHALE, AND LET ME TELL YOU, THAR HE BLOWS.( LAUGHTER )
, THIS MORNING– THIS MORNING, THE ADMINISTRATION, FOR SOME
REASON, RELEASED THE OFFICIAL NOTES OF TRUMP’S PHONE CALL WITH
UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT VOLODYMYR ZELENSKY. SEEN HERE THRILLING HIS FANS
WITH “CRAZY TRAIN.” AND THESE NOTES THAT THEY
RELEASED OF THIS PHONE CALL MAKE TRUMP LOOK– AND I DON’T WANT TO
GET TOO TECHNICAL– BAD.( LAUGHTER )
THE CALL STARTS WITH TRUMP CONGRATULATING ZELENSKY ON HIS
RECENT VICTORY IN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS, BUT THEN HE QUICKLY
REMINDS ZELENKSY HOW MUCH UKRAINE OWES THE U.S. “THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN
VERY, VERY GOOD TO UKRAINE. I WOULDN’T SAY THAT IT’S
RECIPROCAL.”( LAUGHTER )
(AS TRUMP) “I WOULDN’T SAY IT’S BEEN
RECIPROCAL, BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT WORD MEANS.( LAUGHTER )
I’M JUST SAYING– ALL I’M SAYING–
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
LOOK, VOLODY, ALL I’M SAYING. I SCRATCH YOUR BACK. YOU HELP ME BURY JOE BIDEN’S
POLITICAL CAREER IN A SHALLOW GRAVE IN THE WOODS DOWN
BY THE DUMP.” ZELENKSY IMMEDIATELY PICKED UP
ON IT. “YES, YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. NOT ONLY 100%, BUT ACTUALLY
1000%.” THIS GUY SPEAKS TRUMP’S
LANGUAGE. (AS ZELENSKY)
“NOT JUST 100%, 1000%. MANY ARE SAYING THE MOST BIGLY
PERCENTS ANYONE HAS EVER SEEN, FAKE NEWS, WITCH HUNT, NO
COLLUSION.( LAUGHTER )
OKAY. LET’S COLLUDE.”( LAUGHTER )
ZELENKSY TRUMPED ON: “I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK YOU
FOR YOUR GREAT SUPPORT IN THE AREA OF DEFENSE. WE ARE READY TO CONTINUE TO
COOPERATE FOR THE NEXT STEPS. SPECIFICALLY, WE ARE ALMOST
READY TO BUY MORE JAVELINS FROM THE UNITED STATES FOR DEFENSE
PURPOSES.” YES, WE’RE SELLING THEM
JAVELINS. BUT IF RUSSIAN TANKS ROLL INTO
KIEV, WE WILL UPGRADE THEM TO THE SHOT-PUT AND DISCUS. MAYBE HAMMER THROW. WELL– HA-HA– TURNS OUT
JAVELINS ARE A MISSILE SYSTEM THAT WE WERE SENDING U.K. TO
FIGHT THE RUSSIANS WHO INVADED THEIR COUNTRY, BUT
WE STOPPED THAT RIGHT BEFORE THIS PHONE CALL. ZELENSKY SAYS HE WANTS THOSE
MISSILES, AND HERE COMES THE QUID PRO QUOTE. TRUMP IMMEDIATELY SAYS, “I WOULD
LIKE YOU TO DO US A FAVOR, THOUGH.” ( BELL RINGING )
(AS GAME SHOW HOST) “LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, OUR
CONTESTANT HAS SAID TODAY’S SECRET WORDS: THE PHRASE THAT
PAYS THE UKRAINE IN EXCHANGE FOR — THE PHRASE THAT PAYS THE
UKRAINIAN IN EXCHANGE FOR POLITICAL FAVORS! TELL THE PRESIDENT WHAT HE’S
WON!” (AS GAMESHOW ANNOUNCER)
“IT’S PROTRACTED IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, A PERMANENT STAIN ON
HIS ALREADY SHAMEFUL LEGACY, AND A LOVELY BROYHILL DINETTE SET. BROYHILL: EAT CROW IN STYLE!”
NOW, FIRST, TRUMP ASKED IF THEY COULD FIND HILLARY’S EMAIL
SERVER FROM 2016. THAT WAS THE FIRST FAVOR. THEN, TRUMP NAMED THE FOREIGN
INTERFERENCE HE WANTED IN OUR 2020 ELECTION. “THE OTHER THING, THERE’S A LOT
OF TALK ABOUT BIDEN’S SON, THAT BIDEN STOPPED THE PROSECUTION,
AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO FIND OUT ABOUT THAT, SO WHATEVER YOU
CAN DO WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WOULD BE GREAT. WE DO A LOT FOR YOU, LIKE
MISSILES. I NEED A FAVOR, THOUGH,
INVESTIGATE BIDEN. THERE IT IS: PRESSURING A
FOREIGN COUNTRY TO PROVIDE DIRT TO INFLUENCE OUR ELECTION. THEY SHOULD HOLD THE IMPEACHMENT
NOW. ALL IN FAVOR, SAY YEA.>>YAY!>>YAY!( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: NOW, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TRUMP MENTIONED IS OUR
ATTORNEY GENERAL. SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PHONE CALL,
HE SAID HE WOULD HAVE WILLIAM BARR CALL ZELENSKY TO HELP
UKRAINE DIG UP DIRT ON TRUMP’S POLITICAL ENEMIES. BUT TODAY, BARR DENIED
INVOLVEMENT IN TRUMP’S SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST BIDEN. EY, WHAT’S THE MATTER, BILLY,
DON’T YOU TRUST YOUR OLD BUDDY DON? HE’LL PROTECT YOU THE SAME WAY
HE PROTECTED HIS OTHER FRIENDS: PAUL MANAFORT AND MICHAEL COHEN. THEY BOTH GET FREE CLOTHES,
COMFY BEDS, AND MAGIC TOILETS THAT MAKE WINE.( LAUGHTER )
AND WHEN TRUMP TOLD ZELENSKY THAT GIULIANI WOULD ALSO BE IN
TOUCH, HE TOLD THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS LIE OF ALL:
“MR. GIULIANI IS A HIGHLY RESPECTED MAN.”( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
(AS TRUMP)
“YOU DON’T GET CABLE TV IN UKRAINE DO YOU? NO? GOOD. VERY HIGHLY RESPECTED. VERY HIGHLY RESPECTED. ALSO, VERY HUMAN TEETH, VERY.”( LAUGHTER )
NOW, TRUMP’S DEFENSE HAS NOT BEEN EXACTLY WELL ORGANIZED
TODAY. THIS MORNING, A POLITICO
REPORTER TWEETED: “HMMM, THE WHITE HOUSE JUST SENT ITS
TALKING POINTS ON UKRAINE TO HOUSE DEMOCRATS.” BUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER
SENDING THE DEMS THEIR INSIDER COMMUNICATION STRATEGY, SOURCES
SAY THE WHITE HOUSE JUST SENT A FOLLOW-UP TO RECALL THE EMAIL.” HOUSE DEMOCRATS RESPONDED WITH
THEIR OWN EMAIL. “L.O.L, SORRY, NO BACKSIES. IM-PEACH.”( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THE WHITE HOUSE’S TALKING POINTS ARE ABOUT WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT,
WITH CLAIMS LIKE, “WHAT THE PRESIDENT ACTUALLY TALKED ABOUT
WAS ENTIRELY PROPER.” AND, “THIS IS JUST ANOTHER
EXAMPLE OF THE DEEP STATE, THE MEDIA, AND DEMOCRATS DAMAGING
OUR NATIONAL SECURITY FOR POLITICAL GAIN.” AND “THE TRANSCRIPT CLEARLY
SHOWS THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO.” YES, ALL HE DID WAS SUGGEST NO
MORE MILITARY AID UNLESS THEY INVESTIGATED BIDEN. THAT’S JUST QUID PRO JOE. WHO KNOWS WHAT’S GOING TO
HAPPEN HERE, IT’S ANYBODY’S GUESS. BUT THIS PHONE CALL IS PRETTY
DAMNING. SO, A VISIBLY MIFFED TRUMP
BUT ALSO EXHAUSTED DONALD TRUMP, TALKED ABOUT THE CALL WITH
REPORTERS AT THE U.N., AND SAID IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE.>>THERE WAS NO PRESSURE. THE WAY YOU HAD IT BUILT UP,
THAT CALL, IT WAS GOING TO BE THE CALL FROM HELL. IT TURNED OUT TO BE A NOTHING
CALL OTHER THAN A LOT OF PEOPLE SAID, “I NEVER KNEW YOU COULD BE
SO NICE.”>>Stephen: YES.( LAUGHTER )
YES, IT’S TRUE. PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW TRUMP COULD
BE SO NICE– SPECIFICALLY, DON JR. AND ERIC. (AS ERIC)
“WAIT, DAD, YOU OFFERED TO GIVE STUFF TO THAT UKRAINIAN GUY? WHY DID YOU OFFER THAT GUY
STUFF? I THOUGHT YOU SAID PRESENTS
WERE FOR THE WEAK! SANTA IS GONNA GET AN EARFUL
FROM ME IN MY NEXT LETTER.”( LAUGHTER )
HE ALSO INSISTED– HE ALSO INSISTED–
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
♪ ♪ ♪
HE ALSO INSISTED THAT THERE WAS NOTHING TO SEE HERE.>>IT’S THE SINGLE GREATEST
WITCH HUNT IN AMERICAN HISTORY, PROBABLY IN HISTORY, BUT IN
AMERICAN HISTORY. IT’S A DISGRACEFUL THING. THE LETTER WAS A GREAT LETTER,
MEANING THE LETTER REVEALING THE CALL.>>Stephen: (AS TRUMP)
“THE LETTER WAS A GREAT LETTER, THAT WAS ACTUALLY A CALL. BRRRNG-BRRNG. OH, MY MAILBOX IS RINGING. HELLO? SORRY, I CAN’T HEAR YOU. I’M ALL OUT OF STAMPS.”( LAUGHTER )
THEN, THIS AFTERNOON, TRUMP SAT DOWN AT THE U.N. WITH THE
UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT. THEIR JOINT PRESS CONFERENCE
BEGAN WITH TRUMP EXPLAINING JUST HOW WELL HE KNEW THE UKRAINIAN
PEOPLE.>>I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM
UKRAINE, THEY’RE GREAT PEOPLE, AND I OWN
SOMETHING CALLED THE “MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT.” WE HAD A WINNER FROM UKRAINE,
AND WE HAVE REALLY HAD– WE GOT TO KNOW THE COUNTRY VERY WELL IN
A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS.>>Stephen: (AS TRUMP)
“THE MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT TAUGHT ME A LOT ABOUT THE
UKRAINIAN PEOPLE. THEY ARE ALL VERY TALL, VERY
BLOND, VERY THIN. THEY WEAR SWIMSUITS AND HIGH
HEELS. THEY HAVE A SASH THAT SAYS
‘UKRAINE’ ON IT, AND THEY HAVE NO LOCK ON THEIR DRESSING ROOM
DOORS. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL CULTURE.” IT’S A TRUE STORY. BY THE WAY– AND I’M SURE YOU
SAW THIS COMING– UKRAINE HAS NEVER WON MISS UNIVERSE. IT’S JUST ANOTHER LIE. OR MAYBE SHE WON MISS ALTERNATE
UNIVERSE, WHICH IS WHERE I WISH I LIVED RIGHT NOW. BUT POLITICS AREN’T THE ONLY
THING ZELENSKY ADMIRES ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP. IN THE PHONE CALL HE ALSO SAID,
“LAST TIME I TRAVELED TO THE UNITED STATES, I STAYED IN NEW
YORK NEAR CENTRAL PARK, AND I STAYED AT THE TRUMP TOWER.” YES, IN FACT, HE STAYED IN THE
DON JR. MEMORIAL RUSSIAN COLLUDE-ROOM. “HE LOVED IT, ESPECIALLY LATER
IN THE SUMMER.” AND TRUMP HAD A GREAT SUGGESTION
FOR HIS NEW BEST FRIEND: WHY NOT SIT DOWN WITH HIS OLD
BEST FRIEND.>>I REALLY HOPE THAT YOU AND
PRESIDENT PUTIN GET TOGETHER AND CAN SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.>>Stephen: AH, YES, THAT MOMENT
WHERE YOUR RIDICULOUS ACTIONS FINALLY CATCH UP WITH YOU. CAN WE SEE THAT AGAIN?>>I REALLY HOPE THAT YOU AND
PRESIDENT PUTIN GET TOGETHER AND CAN SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. THAT WOULD BE A TREMENDOUS
ACHIEVEMENT. ♪ ♪ ♪
>>Stephen: IT WORKS. IT WORKS.>>Stephen: AND HE ENDED WITH A
FAIRLY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT THAT TRUMP MADE UP.>>NANCY PELOSI, AS FAR AS I’M
CONCERNED, UNFORTUNATELY, SHE IS NO LONGER THE SPEAKER OF THE
HOUSE.>>Stephen: WHAT? WAIT. WHAT, I JUST– IT’S THAT SEAS? WELL, IN THAT CASE, DONALD
TRUMP, AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED, UNFORTUNATELY, IS NO LONGER
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU. RENEE ZELLWEGER IS HERE. BUT WHEN WE RETURN, A VERY
SPECIAL GUEST IN TOWN FROM THE U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY. STICK AROUND!

  1. “If the prosecutor isn’t fired, you’re not getting the billion dollars.” -Joe Biden
    Is this Quid pro quo?

  2. Can you explain this video to me? Seriously? If you can, then I will NOT vote for Trump in 2020 and I will vote for a candidate of your choosing. Okay?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXA–dj2-CY

  3. 1999 TREATY WITH CLINTON AND UKRAINE TO HELP SEARCH OUT ILLEGAL ACTIONS signed in Kiev on July 22, 1998.= THERE IS NO CRIME

  4. Ironically, the ONLY way for donny to ABSOLUTELY lose is if Creepy Joe is the nomination! He is crushing himself again! 🤣🤣🤣

  5. This is why we need Andrew Yang for president in 2020! No politician, No corruptions just helping all Americans and becoming how great the US is moving forward!

  6. None of you have read this. Not a single one. You're all morons and should be in insane asylums. You are bad people. Your parents should regret having you. I hope you all rot in cells.

  7. i do not live in the US and im embarrassed for you hope they redo the oil painting of all the presidents without him

  8. Biden admitted on video that he broke the law 18 USC201 C+B and 18 USC 1951 Hobbs act. He confessed to Quid Pro Quo The same crime President Trump is being falsely accused of. What the hell is going on with trhis dem congress under Pelosi and Schiff??? Hillary destroyed 33 thousand e-mails after being served. CRIMES ! and these people get a pass. Wait intill its you. Prison for years is what you would get under these people. Its a coup folks!

  9. Trump: This is the single greatest witch hunt in American history, probably in history.

    All the people who were killed for being witches, like during the Salem Witch Trials: … hold my frog.

  10. Lmao Biden on national news saying he himself did quid pro quo lmao 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 make fun of that dumbasses

  11. If that’s what the transcript says, then he’s toast. He didn’t directly say “this for that” or “I’ll trade you favors” so that’s about all the wiggle room he has.

    I have a trump supporter that works near me at work. It will be so utterly satisfying if and when Trump gets impeached to give him a good passive aggressive slight the way he does with me.

  12. A show for imbeciles. The dems can't find a first hand witness to testify to anything. Yet Creepy Joe Biden admits to a quid pro quo on video and crickets and cover up by the complicit and corrupt media. A washed up comedian on late night tv is not a valid news source. This is all a distraction

  13. Ayo what's this, is this biden pressuring a foreign country to fire the prosecutor investigation his son?

    https://youtu.be/vCSF3reVr10

  14. Colbert kimmel and oliver are all communist ivy league propaganda… Very good at asking questions and smearing you after you answer. Very good at DARVO when pressed.

  15. We're not going to give you the billion dollars. I said you have no authority, you're not the President, the President said to call him. I said I'm telling you're not getting the billion dollars. I said you're not getting the billion, I'm going to be leaving here and I think it was, what, six hours? I look at him and said we leave here in 6 hours. If the prosecutor's not fired, you're not getting the money. Well, son of a b*tch! He got fired!

    If that's not a Quid Pro Quo, I don't know what is

    HELLO?! WAKE UP & SMELL THE COFFEE PEOPLE

  16. When you accuse someone of quid pro quo, have evidence…..like this. This Video CLEARLY shows Joe Biden BRAGGING about Commiting the Quid Pro Quo our

    Duly Elected president Trump wants to investigate and RIGHTFULLY so! https://youtu.be/vCSF3reVr10

  17. I've read the entire transcript, there's nothing Quid Pro Quo in it. You've cherry picked the transcript, I encourage everyone who watched this to go read it and see how misrepresented it is.

  18. Trump: "Do me a favor" – 97 times in the years between election and the phone call.

    https://factba.se/search#%22do%2Bme%2Ba%2Bfavor%22

    Are all of these impeachable, or is this just the way he talks?

  19. He wasn't just fu**ed by a woman he was totally rimmed, then again it would of been better if Liz Warren, M Walters or Omarosa had been there & everybody had a go…

  20. He couldn't have possibly wanted him investigated because he is the current president of the US and he is supposed to look into stuff like that. He damn sure didn't and doesn't need help with the 2020 election even with the impeachment. So motive for him asking is subjective. Meaning you can't prove that he asked for assistance was for the election and not because it's his fucking job as president!
