Ed Henry Quotes Senior Administration Official: ‘It’s In The President’s Interest’ To Release Trump, Ukraine Call Transcript

Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry had some “new information” about President Donald Trump’s call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday night’s edition of Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

The July 25 call, during which Trump reportedly asked Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, at least eight times, is key to a recent whistleblower complaint against the president.

Speaking with Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum, Henry quoted a senior Trump administration official as saying there is “no there, there” regarding presidential wrongdoing and it would be in the “president’s interest” to release the actual transcript to prove it.

“I’ve got some new information tonight about a July phone call between the president of the United States and his Ukrainian counterpart that’s at the center of this controversy,” Henry said. “Details suggesting Democrats and pundits in the media may be overreaching. A senior administration official familiar with the transcript of that call told me it is way overblown to suggest there was any threat at all to national security. This top official saying ‘The media better be careful with this. There is no there there. It’s in the president’s interest to put the transcript of the call out and show there was no quid pro quo.’”
