Independent Senator Angus King has claimed that some 20 minutes of the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky are missing from the White House memo detailing the conversation.
The full transcript of the now-infamous call between the two leaders has not been released.
King told Cooper he has a "hunch" about the edited transcript, the release of which pushed the Democratic Party to open an impeachment investigation into the president.
"I had two staff members from my office the other day read it aloud.
King admitted that some, or even all, of the missing time could have been taken up by translators facilitating the call.
"It may be there was a translator involved and that made it go much longer," the senator acknowledged.
If there was no translator that raises a question of what's in the other 20 minutes of that discussion.". »
