Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, House Republican Chairwoman and a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement.
“The White House must release the transcript of President Biden’s call with President Zelenskyy immediately.”
“It was House Democrats, led by Chairman Schiff and Speaker Pelosi, who spent months wasting American taxpayer dollars on a purely partisan attack propped up by their selectively-edited call between President Trump and President Zelenskyy. Joe Biden himself called on President Trump to ‘release the transcript…let the House see it.’”
“Now, as Biden’s foreign policy disasters mount, Democrats are putting another double standard on display by not releasing the transcript of President Biden’s call with Zelenskyy. To paraphrase our colleagues on the other side of the aisle, if there is nothing wrong with the call, this should not be a problem.”
“President Biden's weakness on the world stage has emboldened America’s enemies, abandoned our allies, and put us in the midst of an international crisis. Now, the Biden administration is playing a game of ‘he said, she said’ regarding yesterday’s call with President Zelenskyy.”
