CNN Backs Trump After he Slams Dems who Purposefully Misquoted him in Impeachment Hearing
 
President Trump slammed Democrat Representatives Veronica Escobar and  Sheila Jackson-Lee for purposely misquoting his Ukraine phone call during the impeachment hearings.

CNN fact-checked the claim and agreed with the President.

According to The Daily Wire:

Trump responded to the two Democrats falsely quoting him by tweeting: “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.”

 

CNN’s fact-check of Trump’s tweet stated: “Trump is correct that the call was misquoted during today’s debate over the articles of impeachment in the House Judiciary committee.”

CNN reported:

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.

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff did the same thing during impeachment hearings held in front of his committee.
