Key highlight from Ukraine transcript appended to my colleague @BradKutner's story.🔽

Just going through the transcript now, as this morning's hearings in the tax-return fight wrapped up.

Developing story on that is up with an update on the way.

I'll share some observations on the transcript in a bit.

As some of my followers are (correctly) noting, it is a readout -- not a transcript.

The five-page document describes it as a "Memorandum of a Telephone Conversation" that lasted 30 minutes.

Context: Both the White House and PressSec call this a "full, unredacted transcript."

A notation on the first page has a note of "CAUTION" that it "not a verbatim transcript."

More on the substance later.

Beyond the Trump administration, one wonders about the fallout of this memo’s release in Ukraine.

After Trump discusses putting Giuliani and Barr on a call with him, Zelensky’s quoted as calling the next prosecutor general “100% my person.”

How do Ukrainians feel about that?

Now that Trump emoluments suit has been revived in SDNY, it’s easy to imagine this passage of the transcript appearing in legal briefs.

Zelensky’s NYC accommodations.

2nd Circ. talked of foreign officials seeking to “curry favor” at Trump properties.  https://www.courthousenews.com/second-circuit-revives-emoluments-lawsuit-against-trump
