CNN Admits Sheila Jackson Lee and Veronica Escobar Misquoted Trump’s Call With Zelensky

Thursday, President Trump charged two Democrats Sheila Jackson Lee and Veronica Escobar of purposely misquoting him.

Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call. I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad.

A CNN fact check found President Trump to be accurate.

Democrats indeed misquoted his call during today’s debate over the articles of impeachment in the House Judiciary Committee.

Facts First: Trump is correct that the call was misquoted during today’s debate over the articles of impeachment in the House Judiciary committee.

In the declassified memo of the July 25 phone call between Trump and President Zelensky, the President says, “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot.”

During the debate over impeachment articles, Rep. Escobar, using an analogy to stress the alleged problem in Trump’s phone call with Zelensky, said “I want you to do me a favor though.” This quote replaces the word “us” found in the memo on the call, with the word “me.”

Rep. Jackson, when quoting the memo of the call, said that the quote was “I would like you to do a favor though” — removing “us” from the quote.
