Check this out. It’s the HPSCI summary
of Jennifer Williams’ testimony. Schiff’s HPSCI. The summary was
published on Thu Nov 14.
At her deposition, Ms. Williams was asked whether the Ukrainian company Burisma was
mentioned by name during the call between President Trump and President Zelensky on
July 25, 2019. She testified that it was. She was then asked who had mentioned it and
whether she had taken notes. Ms. Williams testified that she had taken notes, and that she
believed her notes reflected that President Trump had referenced Burisma. https://intelligence.house.gov/uploadedfiles/20191114_-_williams_transcript_excerpts_final.pdf
This is FALSE. Read Williams’ testimony. She was not asked whether
Burisma was mentioned during the call. She was asked if the transcript
of the call was accurate. SHE was the one who mentioned Burisma, that
it was in her notes but not in the transcript, she was not asked about
Q Based on being in the room and taking notes and then reading the transcript, was it accurate and complete? [there is back and forth Q and A but none of it mentions Burisma]
A My notes did reflect that the word Burisma had come up in the call,
that the President had mentioned Burisma. I hadn’t noticed that when I
first read the transcript.
Someone doublecheck my work. The Williams testimony transcript is available in Sundance’s article on the topic. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/11/16/house-releases-transcripts-from-jennifer-williams-and-tim-morrison-depositions/ Start on page 62, where Rep Castor begins her questioning. The question about the transcript is on page 65,
The HPSCI headed by Schiff undoubtedly deliberately misstated what
happened in order to misinform the public. They cherry picked quotes
from her testimony to support their lie. I haven’t checked yet but I
suspect there were propaganda media articles propagating this false info
Of course they constructed it the way they did to make Trump look bad but this was an easy layup for them.
