Whistleblower complaint about President Trump involves Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the matter

A whistleblower complaint about President Trump made by an intelligence official centers on Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the matter, which has set off a struggle between Congress and the executive branch.

The complaint involved communications with a foreign leader and a ďpromiseĒ that Trump made, which was so alarming that a U.S. intelligence official who had worked at the White House went to the inspector general of the intelligence community, two former U.S. officials said.

Two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed, Trump spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian and political newcomer who was elected in a landslide in May.

That call is already under investigation by House Democrats who are examining whether Trump and his attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani sought to manipulate the Ukrainian government into helping Trumpís reelection campaign. Lawmakers have demanded a full transcript and a list of participants on the call.

6. That's what I thought at first as well

Given that he practically offered up McFaul and other Americans to Putin at the disastrous Helsinki Summit.

But reports are now saying it had to do with Ukraine. Did he promise Putin to lift sanctions against Russia for its actions in Crimea? I guess we'll know soon enough.

3. Just heard it on CNN from the Wa Post.

The moron did have Ghouliani go there to get dirt on Biden and he did speak to the Ukrainian leader at the end of July.

8. How many people, besides the whistleblower, know what was said and have not stepped forward?

Every single one of them is an accomplice in this.

I wonder if this is why Coats recently departed as DNI.

Where he and Giuliani likely asked for dirt on Biden in exchange for $250 million in military aid.

16. Let's just assume he rigged with Russia on election

Plus all the other shitty things he's done.

It is just pure logic he is capable and has done lots of other things. It will all come out eventually. People hate him and are driven to find more.

Let's just hope he doesn't get reelected.

The only way I can handle the slowwww movement on the arc of justice is jabbing those criminals in the other party for crimes they are yet to be punished for. Oh yes, I do mean punished to the full extent of the law.

30. Trump will spend the rest of his miserable life in prison.

...Where he should have been long ago.

And if it is true, may all those who were in on this conspiracy also find accommodations in the penitentiary.

33. Rachel saying that Barr and the White House were consulted about the Whistleblower

 

Which is against the law. And that Barr is threatening to prosecute the Whistleblower saying the Law isnít protecting him/her. This lawlessness is OUTRAGEOUS and we need to take to the streets. Trump, with Barrís backing, is claiming to be above the law and canít even be investigated, as claimed to the SDNY as an appeal to turning over his tax returns to the State of New York.

I certify that I am not a bot lol

1. 95% of Americans dont know what the Ukraine is

2. He got away with it before

3. If it involves defeating Biden the GOP and his
base will regard it as patriotic

4. The media owners are loving this scandal. Trump
means ratings. The journalists might be into the truth but their bosses will cover it up for money

38. This is important, of course,

but the sad thing is if you stood on a street corner tomorrow and stopped 100 people 99 of them couldn't find Ukraine on a map. Even more sad is Trump would be one of the 99.

41. Wonder if it involves the Russian sanctions against Russia for its invasion of the Ukraine?

You know like maybe a promise to try and lessen the sanctions to Russia if Russia did Trump a favor or promised to not invade anyone else until after x date?
