There is blood in the water - even Fox commentators by and large agree that the Transcript shows impeachable conduct by Trump.

That's not how this works Donald.
He really thinks he's monarch of the Kingdom of America.

That very fact might be his undoing. It's the undoing of a lot of autocratic idiots.

Oh, my! What a revelation. Someone with cash to spend actually donated to a political party... and it wasn't the President's!

Stop the ******* presses.

There's also the fact that a lot of pathological liars have convinced themselves that everyone believes their lies, even when people are telling them to their face that they aren't buying it. Trump probably thinks he's put one over on us all by releasing this summary, ignoring all the people who are pointing out all the problems with it.

how TF does Trump know who the Whisltblower is?
The whole point of the process is to prevent retaliation through keeping their identity a secret.

Whoever told Trump needs to be fired, in the interest of National Security.
