Please Note

What Trump released was not a transcript of his call with the President of the Ukraine, but notes taken by members of the national security staff during the call that were later assembled into a single document.

Transcripts are verbatim written records of speech. Given how easy it is to provide an audio/video record of conversations that could be accurately transcribed at a later date, the continued reliance on note taking is rather archaic.

Yes, and exactly! *sigh*

It is also an extremely easy way to lie to your own people, but it means you are betting that the other end of the conversation isn’t making a recording…
