Late Wednesday morning, CNN’s Jim Acosta reported on Twitter that the White House accidentally sent their compiled talking points on President Trump’s conversation with President Zelensky of the Ukraine:
For those unaware, this is basically a strategy memo on what to say to the press when they ask difficult questions. It gets into specifics, but all boils down to “Trump did nothing wrong.” There was no quid quo pro, and this is all about the “deep state” and the “media” trying to start a witch hunt.
Hilariously, the White House then tried to recall the email, reports Buzzfeed's David Mack:
The memo itself is nothing unexpected or especially compromising—Democrats probably could have written it themselves—but the whole episode is another mark of the chaos and incompetence at the heart of this White House.
