 A whistleblower's complaint about President Donald Trump, made public on Thursday, says White House officials were so concerned about what the president said in a July call with Ukraine's new leader that they intervened to 'lock down' the transcript of the conversation. The whistleblower, whose name and gender has not been released, lodged the formal complaint out of a belief that Trump was 'using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country' in the 2020 election. In the call, Trump discussed having Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy help investigate the Biden family's business dealings. The matter is now the subject of a formal impeachment inquiry that was launched by the House this week. The whistleblower reportedly has witnesses to corroborate the complaint.

That could all be true, but I didn't see any suggestions for what different kinds of actions should be taken. Under your other, similar comment, I wrote:


Are you saying that because "This so-called 'whistle-blower' was no such thing. just a cia planted spy" that no response should be made by Congress and/or the American people?

Or are you saying that a different response should be made by Congress or the American people, than what is being made? What kind of response fro Congress would be more effective and efficient under these circumstances?

Are you saying that you think the transcript of the phone call is fake news? That the phone call didn't happen as reported?

Or that the phone call and transcript are real, but the whistle was blown by a person who wasn't really a whistleblower in the true sense?

It's hard to tell what you are saying, here.

If you believe that we should do what we can to preserve the Constitution, then what do you think would be the most efficient response from Congress at this juncture?

According to what was caught on video, Congresspeople were visibly shaken. To me, that is one of the important points made in this article, and it clues me in to watch their actions very carefully with this in mind.

I don't think most OEN readers expect most MSN articles to be 100% accurate, LOL, but seeing what they include, and exclude, from their reporting often offers clues to what is behind the smokescreen. (Of course, no one here is required to read them, if they don't want to. ;-)
