Here you have a perfectly reasonable explanation why the House should just fold it up.

Pumpkin is deploying the very facts that should send him to prison in his defense. And based on the propaganda techniques he’s using, it will probably work.

He has now begun having his stooges yell, READ THE TRANSCRIPT!

Even the heavily edited transcript that he released is damning evidence on its own. But by having his red-capped mouth breathers scream it at people, he builds a narrative that it exonerates him. Because why would they be shoving it in people’s faces otherwise? The fact that none of them have read it makes no difference at all.
