#Vindman told House impeachment investigators on Tuesday that the White House transcript of a July call between Trump and Ukraine’s president omitted crucial words and phrases, and that his attempts to restore them failed
nytimes.com/2019/10/29/us/… via @NYTimes
2/ “The omissions..included Trump’s assertion that there were recordings of Biden discussing Ukraine corruption, and an explicit mention by Ukraine’s president Zelensky, of Burisma Holdings, the energy company whose board employed Biden’s son Hunter.”
3/ “...Vindman’s account offered hint to solving a mystery surrounding the convo first reported by the intelligence whistle-blower whose complaint launched the impeachment inquiry: what Trump’s aides left out of the transcript in places where ellipses indicate dropped words”
4/ “It is not clear why some of Vindman’s changes were not made, while others he recommended were, but the decision by a White House lawyer to quickly lock down the reconstructed transcript subverted the normal process of handling such documents.”
5/ “The note-takers & voice recognition software used during the July 25 call had missed Zelensky saying the word “Burisma,” but the reconstructed transcript does reference “the company,” and suggests that the Ukrainian president is aware that it is of great interest to Trump”
