    Did you not read any of the articles? There’s people involved with these calls as a matter of course as part of their normal jobs. Interpreters among others.

    No nameless bureaucrat tells the President of the United States who he can talk to or what he can say. Particularly members of alphabet agencies who participated in the attempted coup.

    Whatever it is or isn't, it won't hold a candle to Hillary's shenanigans.

    It's another big nothing-burger from a non-name, likely a holdover from the Obama administration.

    In spite of what you TDS sufferers think, Trump is not stupid.

    I visit DU often, it is both amusing and terrifying at the same time.

    They are all peeing their pants over this. Hard to tell what the substance is here, other than it appears Congress cannot get some information they want and are entitled to. Maybe there is a good reason for it. We are all fumbling in the dark here trying to find a light switch with only 10% direction on where it is.

    He may have done something stupid here, I'm not that much of a Trump sychophant to defend him in that case. It will come out in time. Seems like we may have 2 battling IG's and their reports in the news cycle for a bit, until another shiny object emerges.

    I find that waiting and seeing is usually a good policy.

    There is nothing to withhold.

    A whistleblower says what?

    Trump could give the nuclear codes and it would not be illegal. He could promise money or even American military assets and nothing is illegal about it. The president can do that.

    A whistleblower report has to be illegal activity.

    I heard them explain it on NPR. Basically every time Trump sends out a tweet it violatesNational Security. So he needs to be..



    Wait for it






    You guessed it's? HOW






    But you are correct



    IMPEACHED...

    I think Trump should be held exactly as accountable as Obama and Hillary were. Fair's fair, right? The same laws for everyone?

    It's unfathomable to me that anyone could believe a single thing from the "intelligence community" regarding the president they tried to incite a literal coup of, and continue to do so.

    Since the credibility of the MSM and the rest of the Resistance is in the toilet, this is FAKE NEWS until proven otherwise.

    The Never-Trumpers are now lapping up everything the media regurgitates.
    They learned nothing from the "Russian Collusion" fraud.

    I'm discussing it. I asked you a simple question at post #20. Can you answer it?

    So we can expect chants of “lock him up”? I mean, that was the plan for them, right?

    It’s always interesting to see who is willing to give someone in the government unlimited power with no accountability.

    Honestly, the left spending the last few years screaming Impeach is pretty close.

    Big difference there though, is there's actually evidence against hillary for loads of felonies.

    I just read on fox that this had to do with the Ukraine and Trump calling them out on dropping the investigation on Biden's son's illicit activities there.

    From what I just heard, it's being spun by the Democrat leftists that President Trump is trying to put a "thumb on the scale" of the Democrat primaries and 2020 election... Because, you know, there's no other reason to investigate crimes by Americans in foreign countries, especially something as egregious as the nepotistic goings-on with Joe and his son. :upeyes:

    This is all another BS story made up to look like something. The President has the authority to make a promise to another world leader without having to ask anyone’s permission.

    Everyone in the federal government takes a course on whistleblowing, pretty in depth on the process.......the part where it is anyone else's business is not according to the process.

    It is just more get Trump drama. Will amount to nothing, the outrageous thing is folks getting a paycheck to pursue it.

    I think they call it frivolous, and another word is pettiness

    I don’t need a chant, I’d just like an answer to my question in a discussion that you challenged everyone to start. Now, you seem to be avoiding having a discussion.

    Oh, you know how it is. A leftist sees a new story on their leftist newsfeed, and thinks “we got him now...”.
    Then, the doubt sets in. “Oh no, not again...”. After that, they just shut down and revert to their du talking point.
