NYT: White House official called Trump’s Ukraine call ‘crazy’ and ‘frightening,’ was ‘visibly shaken’ by it
Since the New York Times outed the whistleblower as a CIA agent, it seems they’re just going ahead and calling him or her the CIA whistleblower. There’s been a lot of criticism from the start that the whistleblower wasn’t on the call in question and got his or her information secondhand, and now we have breaking news from the Times saying, according to the whistleblower, a White House official the next day called the phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “crazy” and “frightening.”
So we don’t know who this person is either or his or her relationship to the whistleblower, but we do know the person was pretty triggered by the call — and we know that because someone leaked it. We’re supposed to know this, apparently to bolster the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

So hang on — the whistleblower wrote a memo (sounds like James Comey) describing an unnamed official who heard the call and was “visibly shaken” by it the next day. Just what did the White House leave out of the transcript it released?
More TDS porn for the addicted.

The transcript was hardly frightening. WH official must be a millennial.

This BS is seriously blowing up in Democrat’s faces. Sooner or later, even the NYTimes will have to report on the serious damage it is doing to the reputations of those who are pushing this nonsense.

It’ll all become clear when the whistleblower testifies off-site behind a screen with his or her voice and appearance altered so Republicans can’t leak a name.
BREAKING: Transcript was already released and is the opposite….

The transcript is in the public, no need of the hype. We can think for ourselves..

Lol, we already have the transcript.
We are treating secondhand opinions with more importance than the firsthand info the public already has access to…

It definitely seemed that way from the transcript 🙄

I think the @nytimes is "crazy" and "frightening."
— Jason Key (@senorllave) October 8, 2019
It seems that all of these stories about the crazy content of the call were pre-written under the assumption that Trump wouldn’t hand over the transcript…
— PointlessToil (@pointlesstoil) October 8, 2019
Yep. And Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally decided to announce an impeachment inquiry one day before the transcript was released.
Let me guess…an unnamed source.

I sure was scared when I read it

It's like these articles were pre written and was ready to roll out except Trump released the transcript and had the president of Ukraine verify Trumps version of the call throwing a wrench in this scheme, NYT gonna print them anyways lol
