On Thursday, CNN reported that a "senior Ukrainian official" said President Biden warned Ukraine's president of an "imminent" Russian invasion during a phone call earlier in the day. Biden allegedly added that the Capital of Kyiv would be "sacked" and that Ukraine should "prepare for impact."

Then, a just over an hour later, CNN walked back the report. Tweets were deleted, including one of host Jake Tapper repeating the "senior Ukrainian official"'s leak (but not before it was saved):

Both the White House and Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky's office denied the report - yet Zelensky didn't confirm nor deny it during a Friday press conference.

Needless to say, questions remain over the Biden-Zelensky phone call, particularly if the US president was browbeating the Ukrainian president in order to escalate the border situation with Russia.

As such, people are now demanding to see a transcript of the call - while the hashtag #ReleaseTheTranscript has begun trending on social media. It's only fair, after the Democrats' demanded to see a transcript of Trump's 'perfect phone call' during the 2020 US election.


Will the White House be transparent with the American people?
