    Are we not discussing this? Curious if Tucker or Rush have weighed in yet.

    At this point, nothing more than Collusion 2.0 until proven otherwise.

    A whistleblower nowadays, is nothing more than butt-clenched liberal having a MAGA blow-out at the editorial desk of The New York Times.

    Does it not concern you that the law states that the report shall be disclosed to the intelligence committees and it is being withheld by a political appointee?

    Man I was getting worked up about this whole story today... Media/Dems have cried wolf so many times... WHAT IF, the President makes a terrible blunder for realz? NO ONE but the hard core anti-trumpers will believe it!!?

    So no, I'm not concerned. If his phone call was really so dangerous/improper... I doubt the IG would "cover" for him in the first place.

    WOLF!! WOLF!!!

    After consultation with DOJ, so no, not really, at least not yet.

    If it proves to be something substantive, like promising Kali to Lil Kim in exchange for denuclearization, then I'll be interested.

    He was probably talking to Macron to increase MacDs in Paris

    I'm thinking he was promising Trudeau that he would hold on to the brown face photos so long as the USMCA stays on track!

    The IG found it was a serious, legitimate complaint. The political appointee- acting DNI - is the one withholding it.

    I read an article about it the other day. After cutting out the hypotheticals there wasn't much to the story.

    In the end it will get out. Has the investigation been completed yet? Are the accusations factual and not opinion based? Did the whistleblower have all the information?

    The US elective officials are OUR employees and if they did something foul, we should know. Fyi... Atkinson was appointed by President Trump and worked in the DOJ fraud section.


    “At the period’s end — on Aug. 26 — Atkinson purportedly reached his conclusion, finding that the whistleblower had made a credible allegation that met a legal standard of “urgent concern.” He then submitted a copy of the disclosure and “accompanying materials” to acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, beginning another seven-day countdown to the deadline for Maguire to forward the information to the congressional intelligence committees.

    The President can declas whatever he wants, and can discuss whatever he deems appropriate with any world leader, or garbage man, for that matter.

    The accusations met the threshold of requiring the DNI to inform Congress. We do know that hasn't happened, which gives the appearance of a cover-up.

    Of course we don't know the original content, but the point is that there is a statutory mechanism for review and limited information sharing. If that doesn't work, you get Edward Snowdens who just dump the whole thing to the public.

    That's not always a bad thing.
