Whistleblower Complaint From An Intellgience Official On President Trump Centers On Ukraine

Washington Post: 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 “promise” 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.

WNU Editor: There is a lot of speculation among the media on this story. And among Democrats, anger that they are not been given the details on this whistleblower complaint .... Acting spy chief defies subpoena from Adam Schiff for whistleblower complaint (Washington Examiner). As to what is my take. As I mentioned yesterday, this is a strange story. President Trump can say and do what he wants when he deals with foreign leaders. And he is no different from past U.S. Presidents .... case in point .... President Obama Tells Russian President Medvedev That He Needs More Time On Missile Defense (March 26, 2012). So why the focus and intensity on this story? My guess is that the Democrats are still glued to the Russian collusion conspiracy theory, and they just cannot let it go. And as for Congress not receiving the whistleblower complaint, no surprises there either. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has a long history of leaking intel to the media, and it is clear that the acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire does not trust him.

Update #1: I personally would like to know what this intelligence officer felt was important enough for him to lodge a complaint, but it looks like it is not going to happen today .... Administration blocks ‘urgent’ whistleblower disclosure (AP).

Update #2: My guess is that this whistleblower complaint is about the previous Ukraine government's ties to the Biden family and the Trump's administration's attempt to push Ukraine to investigate these ties. In the meantime the new Ukrainian President is defending his ties with President Trump .... Zelensky defends relationship with US after Trump accused of pushing Ukraine to meddle in 2020 election (The Independent).

Or it could be another case of US intel agencies spying on President Trump.

Joe Biden, Pocahontas the fake Indian & House Speculator and Bernie Sanders are then only contenders.

They are are all hypocrites.

This is an attempt by Warren or Trump to take Biden out. If Warren is doing this and and communication with the whistle blower, the whistle blower needs to lose their job. Whistle blowing to promote a campaign?

IF Trump is doing this, it is Trump making lemonade out of a lemon. Several months ago, we knew that Trump asked the Ukrainians to investigate Biden clan corruption. This is known. The only thing 'NEW" is the juicy details of the actual words Trump used.

Trump went after a plutocrat and that is wrong?

Based on this persecution alone, I am voting for Trump!

"You Just Can’t Make This Up! Joe Biden’s $1.5 Billion China-Ukraine Bribery Scandal That Was Ignored by Media is now President Trump’s Scandal!"

This is hardball. The whistle blower is a partisan hack that needs to be blackballed.

'In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.

“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.'

1) So PhreDo posts 7 items that do not pertain to WNU's post, but a general Trump bashing.

2) So you have a Fred, a not too bright person who consistently votes Democrat, Which just the way the DNC likes it.

How is it that the drone Democrat will object to the 2nd Amendment, whenever the DNC rings a bell, but is unperturbed by a porous border with organized crime syndicates running guns, drugs and people (human trafficking)?

The situation is so serious and has gone on for so long, it is no longer funny to call him moron although he is.

"The previous year, Jamal Yousef was arrested in New York City, where it was learned that 100 M16 rifles, 100 AR15 rifles, 200 hand grenades, C4 explosive and anti-tank ammunition were stolen from Iraq by his cousin, an alleged Hezbollah member, and stored in Mexico."

3) The Ukraine story was in the open since March or April of this year. So whistle blowing of a known story???

We are sick of Joe Biden and his corruption!

a) We know the sons of Joe Biden and John Kerry flew over to China and Ukraine with their fathers.
b) We know these sons inked lucrative deals with Ukrainian officials and Chinese communists.
c) We know that the Democrat Party media does not cover this in the same manner as other stories. Nor does law enforcement prosecute these worthless scions of Democrat noble houses.

And you a 90 year old geezer are worried about Trump. What is it with you? Dementia? You never were bright? Democrat partisan to the end?

Democrat Motto


The less you know the easier, it seems to accomplish something.

I blame Hollywood. Too many skulls full of mush have watched Jean Luc Picard say "Make it so". They believe that the world is as easy as that, which is why they elect incompetent bar tenders and other refuse.
