Whistle blower vs Privilege

Posted: Thu Sep 19, 2019 5:12 pm

A complaint forwarded to the inspector general of America’s top spy agencies that involved President Donald Trump concerned more alleged instances of misconduct than previously thought, according to a report from The New York Times.

A Washington Post report on Wednesday said a whistleblower approached Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson with allegations the president made troubling “promises” during communication with a foreign leader.

On Thursday afternoon, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, shared with reporters two letters Atkinson sent to the committee expressing concern about the whistleblower’s allegations and claiming they fall within the jurisdiction of the director of national intelligence.

One of the letters, sent to the Intelligence Committee on Sept. 17, said the whistleblower’s disclosure of potential misconduct “not only falls within the DNI’s jurisdiction, but relates to one of the most significant and important of the DNI’s responsibilities to the American people.”

Despite a law requiring the director of national intelligence to send all whistleblower documents to Congress within seven days of receipt, Joseph Maguire, the acting director, is currently refusing to do so. Maguire is arguing that the information he received from Atkinson is potentially privileged and falls outside of the intelligence community’s purview.

Oh.... how about some Tweets of denial from the Donald



On a side note, Sean Hannity opened his show tonight with attacks on Clinton and Obama....

Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially “heavily populated” call.

No, we're smart enough to know you're dumb enough to do that.

It must be bad. The White House is working very hard to keep Congress from getting details about the whistleblower complaint, with the Justice Dept. leadership telling Atkinson in no uncertain terms that he better clam up. Where have we heard this before?

Can you say, "obstruction of justice?"

IF what's being reported is factual:

1. Does anyone else see the parallel with the FAKE and CORRUPT Steele dossier? Except using official US foreign policy to extort it.

2. If Democrats can gather up the guts to impeach Trump over it, do Republicans have a candidate? At the moment, it looks like Walsh is the only one with any momentum. And being so closely aligned with the *possibly* disgraced former president - as all of the others have taken such pains to be - is not a good position to start from. Will #NotMe and #INeverReallyLikedHim start to trend? The next few days or weeks could get interesting. Or not.

Get ready for Warren and Sanders to open this up and it won't be the President in the hot seat. :fan:

Let me try..
Hunter Biden worked for a company in Ukraine who's owner faced some criminal investigations.

The West wanted the prosecutor fired because he was not fighting corruption. The United States withheld funding because of the corruption.

According to the Trump people Biden did this to protect his son...

Trump was caught on the phone trying to force Ukraine to reopen the investigation into the company that Hunter Biden worked at.

An investigation into the President can't happen without bringing up the Biden stuff of 2014. This is a huge win for Sanders and Warren as it's a three horse race with Joe in the front.

What did Biden do that was wrong? No evidence exist that he used the government authority to protect his son.... Unless you have some.

How do Biden's comments lessen Trump's potentially illegal act?

Question O'The Day: If they aren't going to impeach him for this, why is it even in the Constitution?

It's Watergate with extortion of an ally thrown in. Use it or lose it.

Biden wasn't doing the bidding for his son. The US government, the EU, and the IMF wanted that prosecutor removed, and that was what Biden was doing there.
