    Default Trumpís communications with foreign leader are part of whistleblower complaint

    The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trumpís communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

    Trumpís interaction with the foreign leader included a ďpromiseĒ that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, said the former officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

    Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson determined that the complaint was credible and troubling enough to be considered a matter of ďurgent concern,Ē a legal threshold that ordinarily requires notification of congressional oversight committees.

    But acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire has refused to share details about Trumpís alleged transgression with lawmakers, touching off a legal and political dispute that has spilled into public and prompted speculation that the spy chief is improperly protecting the president.

    The story could be, "Mike Pence goes on record with Fox News and says he possesses video of Trump strangling Baron until he passes out," and that would be your response.

    This is it! The big one! It was Trump thanking Putin for helping him win with those troll farms! Who knew that $3000 in Facebook spending would put Trump over the top?

    The sad part is that you would believe the story.

    The line Trump can cross that would test their loyalty doesn't exist. Well, maybe if Trump converted to Islam.

    Unfortunately, the left has repeatedly ďdrawnĒ fake lines that he has crossed. They have wasted all their time trying to pin Trump with something significant, but nothing proven has risen to a level above a whiny complaint.

    Itís all just background noise now. The left is like a constant whiny, complaining spouse that will never be satisfied.

    The more they complain, the less people listen to them.

    And the more likely people will tell them to STFU in 2020.

    Nobody would believe that story because it would require Trump to spend time with his child.
    Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst.

    So the fact that a whistle blower in the IC felt compelled to come forward with this, and the IG agreed it was urgent gives you no cause for concern at all?

    Yeah- everybody knows that he doesn't like his kids. Really strong post by you!

    Ya, but this time it's the Washington Post, CNN and Schiff that's making the claim. I mean, have those three ever been wrong before? All that's missing to ensure that it's true is for the NY Times to write about it.

    Acting DNI - McGuire states that it is non-urgent. But you are correct. I have no concern at all. There have been many attempts to damage Trump by Obama holdovers and they have all been fake or not substantial issues. This is most likely just another day and another attempt to resist.

    The IG for the intelligence committee has also acknowledged it. This is not a case where screaming "fake news" makes it go away.
