1. Di they also read the actual transcript

I thought the whistle blower complaint said the whistle blower read it all. that is direct knowledge.

5. from IG's press release:

snipped:

"The Complainant on the form he or she submitted on August 12, 2019 in fact checked two
relevant boxes: The first box stated that, “I have personal and/or direct knowledge of events or
records involved”; and the second box stated that, “Other employees have told me about events or
records involved.”


"As part of his determination that the urgent concern appeared credible, the Inspector
General of the Intelligence Community determined that the Complainant had official and
authorized access to the information and sources referenced in the Complainant’s Letter and
Classified Appendix, including direct knowledge of certain alleged conduct, and that the
Complainant has subject matter expertise related to much of the material information provided in
the Complainant’s Letter and Classified Appendix. In short, the ICIG did not find that the
Complainant could “provide nothing more than second-hand or unsubstantiated assertions,”
which
would have made it much harder, and significantly less likely, for the Inspector General to
determine in a 14-calendar day review period that the complaint “appeared credible,” as required
by statute. Therefore, although the Complainant’s Letter acknowledged that the Complainant was
not a direct witness to the President’s July 25, 2019, telephone call with the Ukrainian President,
the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community determined that other information obtained
during the ICIG’s preliminary review supported the Complainant’s allegations."

16. Much obliged!


Documents like these become essential knowledge for us up against the Gang-of-MF45.

The Gang throws out effin lies upon lies upon deceit upon obfuscation upon dissembling upon distortions upon calumny - all of it below contempt as spewed.

9. The Inspector General appears to be

showing quite a bit of courage, not just with this, but also with some earlier actions.

If I remember correctly, Trump wanted someone else for the job but that didn't work out.

13. Another right-wing talking point blown to hell.

The truth has a way of catching up with you. What's that old saw, "Time wounds all heels"?

14. The quicker this individual testifies the safer they will be.

There will still be desire for revenge of course but the urgency to shut them up before they can expose the crimes committed will be eliminated, at least.

Nobody bothered to kill John Dean or Alexander Butterfield did they?
