For the love of God anyone can read the transcript of the phone call.

First off, the so-called 'transcript' of Trump's call to the Ukrainian president released by the White House is NOT a transcript. It's partial compilation of notes and recollections of the people who were on the call. Now if there IS a "word-for-word, comma-by-comma" transcript, as Trump has claimed that this one is, despite the White House's disclaimer that it isn't, then please release it!
And so that we all understand this, here is the disclaimer from the White House document (notice that in the very first sentence, it states that this is NOT a transcript):
CAUTION: A Memorandum of a Telephone Conversation (TELCON) is not a verbatim transcript of a discussion. The text in this document records the notes and recollections of Situation Room Duty officers and NSC policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place. A number of factors can affect the accuracy of the record, including poor telecommunications connections and variations in accent and/or interpretation, The word "inaudible" is used to indicate portions of a conversation that the notetaker was unable to hear.
Now getting back to your request that we read the 'transcript' because it appears that you believe that there was NO request that the Ukrainians investigate a potential political opponent of the president's. Well, what do you call it when Trump said this (in case you missed this when you supposedly read the document, you'll find it in the first paragraph on page four):
The other thing, There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me.
OK, now that we've all read the relevant passage from the so-called 'transcript' please explain how this was NOT an attempt by the President of the United States of America to get 'dirt' on one of his potential political opponents in the upcoming 2020 elections. If Obama had been shown to have tried something like this in 2011, attempting to get 'dirt' on Mitt Romney during a telephone call to say the President of France, what would your opinion have been back then? I mention France, because after all, Romney did his LDS missionary assignment in France and it would be interesting to learn what sort of behavior he may have participated in while there. Who knows, he might have even drank a glass of wine. Now that would have really been something if the Obama campaign had been able to get something like that on Romney.
