Meuser Says ‘No Quid Pro Quo’ After Reading Transcript of Trump-Ukraine Call

Rep. Dan Meuser (PA-9) says there was no “quid pro quo” on the call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schuylkill County’s representative in Washington D.C. released a statement this afternoon after reading the full transcript of the phone call between the presidents. The Trump administration released the transcript of the call in question on Wednesday after hysterical Democrats opened an impeachment inquiry on him late Tuesday.

No Quid Pro Quo

In a statement released in the last hour, Meuser says, “After reading the transcript from President Trump’s call with President Zelensky, it’s clear that there was no quid pro quo and that it was reasonable for them to discuss the potential corruption that may have transpired between the former Vice President and Ukraine.”

Democrats believe Trump abused his power as President by constantly prodding the Ukrainian President to open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden famously, and on the record, bragged about withholding American military aid money from Ukraine, before Zelensky was President, until it fired a prosecutor who was investigating a company on which Biden’s son, Hunter, sat on the board of directors.

Meuser says, “The Democrats believe this justifies impeachment. I do not agree and I’m quite sure any reasonable American, Republican or Democrat, does not agree either.”

The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

So, like just about everything else that the Democrats have investigated about Trump since prior to his election, they’re looking into something they did but accusing Trump of doing it.

An alleged whistleblower with an attorney who donated to Biden’s 2020 election campaign says they heard that Trump illegally pressured Zelensky on a recent phone call. The whistleblower allegedly didn’t have first-hand knowledge of the call, wasn’t on the call, and is reportedly just recalling a second- or third-hand conversation they heard about the call.

Meuser further alleges that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s been corrupted by the far-left caucus of Democrats.

“Speaker Pelosi is again acting in political interests instead of in the public’s best interest. There is obviously no justification for impeachment,” he says.

“No high crime or misdemeanor was committed by the President. If there should be any inquiries, it should be surrounding the potential corruption mentioned in the transcript involving the former Vice President. This seems to be conveniently dismissed.”

    Where in the Constitution does it say there has to be a Quid pro quo to be a traitor?
