Hollywood celebrities are salivating over the House’s impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and are using social media to spread a host of conspiracy theories involving the July 25 call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Anti-Trump stars including Alyssa Milano, Debra Messing, Patton Oswalt, Chelsea Handler, and Jon Cryer have recently tweeted unsubstantiated claims about the call and the subsequent transcript released by the White House.
Milano has wildly extrapolated on allegations by a government “whistleblower” who claims that the White House is using a secret storage system to hold sensitive documents. The “whistleblower,” who had no firsthand knowledge of the call, was later revealed to have a political bias against Trump.
“They’ve been covering up potentially incriminating phone calls on a separate server,” the Who’s the Boss? actress tweeted.

Actress Piper Perabo floated the idea that White House officials doctored the transcript before releasing it. “Can the White House edit the Ukraine phone call transcript before they release it? Asking for a nation,” the actress tweeted.

Will & Grace star Debra Messing retweeted an Axios post that his since been debunked, claiming that Trump’s insistence for the two leaders to discuss a possible investigation into Joe Biden was a precondition for the July 25 call.
The tweet, which cites ABC News as a source, has since proven false, with ABC News correcting its original reporting. Messing hasn’t deleted her tweet.
