Because it contains nothing damaging. Trump was willing to release transcripts anyways.
a reply to: OccamsRazor04

So why ILLEGALLY try to suppress it?

Just for the funsies?


Do you imagine that its in the best interest of any President to willingly go along with his or her public flogging?

Why would a President not try to suppress a whistle blower complaint against them?



Ummm, because its ILLEGAL?

A minor detail, I know.

Its illegal for a president to try to push back on congressional demands? If so we have a lot ... a lot ... of out law ex presidents.

I don't want an investigation into whether Biden did anything wrong; I really don't think there is anything there worth dedicating any time too.


Say what?

A Vice President forcing a country to fire a prosecutor because they're investigating corruption that involves his son and threatening to withhold aid unless they do..... is a pretty serious thing!

If Trump did anything like that, he would have been locked up on day 1

Kudos to the Senate. Enough pussy-footing around and rediculous accusations. Dems are probably in utter disbelief that the repub majority called their bluff.

Aug. 26: Whistleblower complaint is forwarded to Maguire By law, Atkinson was given 14 days to review the whistleblower complaint and make a determination on whether it was credible and of "urgent concern." Apparently finding both to be true, Atkinson forwarded the complaint to Maguire, who had one week to deliver a report on the whistleblower claim to Congress. Sept. 2: Maguire misses congressional deadline Sept. 2 passed, and Maguire declined to issue a report on the whistleblower claim to members of the House and Senate Intelligence committees, which Democrats have since said was a violation of the law.


thehill.com...



Sept. 9: Atkinson alerts Congress Taking matters into his own hands, the inspector general penned a note to lawmakers including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, alerting them to the existence of the whistleblower complaint and accusing Maguire of failing to issue a report to Congress. Sept. 10: Schiff writes back, demands complaint Schiff wrote to Maguire the next day, accusing the acting DNI of breaking the law by failing to issue the report on the whistleblower's complaint to Congress. In his letter, Schiff demanded more information about the contents of the complaint. Sept. 13: DNI responds In a letter several days later to Schiff, Atkinson's general counsel Jason Klitenic explained that the matter was judged to not be of "urgent concern" after consultation with the Justice Department. Schiff subpoenaed Maguire to provide his committee with the whistleblower complaint, writing in his own letter to Maguire that "you have neither the legal authority nor the discretion to overrule a determination by the IC IG."


Suppression of this was ILLEGAL.

No matter if they they were talking about buttercups or golf courses.
It would not have been exposed were it not for the Inspector General.

Trump and his tyranny have to be checked. He has to abide by the law. He has to by law give the whistleblower complaint to the Congress.

Sure that would be a serious thing; but since it likely didn't happy as cut and dry as you started it ... and much more importantly; you or anyone else will likely never be able to prove that it did happen like that ... makes the issue a waist of time.

You are correct; If Trump did something like that ( aka this weeks faux controversy) the Dems would try (and fail) to lock him up. That doesn't mean the rest of us should succumb to such prettiness and selfishness.

All accounts are saying this whistle blower wasn't actually there, didn't actually hear the conversation and is going of 2nd hand information.

Also, Trump is releasing the phone call transcript
www.cbsnews.com...

have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine


If the Democrats have put all their eggs in the impeachment basket over this ''whistle blower'' then you'd better be prepared for it blowing up your faces.

Trump has been a step ahead this whole way, its almost as if he played this tune to force the impeachment, knowing full well what the truth was.

Schiff got played, Pelosi got beat and Trump will come out on top, again!

Maybe it was Bolton who rated Trump out. Is he the whistleblower?

Damn the Democrats are so blinded by the addiction to their wrath that they didn't notice this was bait FROM TRUMP. Took it hook, line and sinker. It's Trump's so-called "whistleblower".

So because you cant be bothered investigating if a real crime happened, its a waste of time.



Lets ignore the ''Trump Russia'' elephant in the room... the ''Obstruction'' elephant in the room too..
hell lets ignore the entire herd of elephants that the Democrats have investigated eh?

Bidens on tape saying he pressured Ukraine to fire the prosecutor, the same prosecutor investigating his son for corruption who earned $50k per month on a corrupt energy board when he had 0 experience in such work.

Bidens ON TAPE...

but yes,

you or anyone else will likely never be able to prove that it did happen like that ... makes the issue a waist of time.

lets go with that!

maybe...

its still being claimed that the 'whistleblower' is recieving this information 2nd hand and wasnt there.
Also, Bolton's been there long enough I think he would have found a better way than leaking to leaky schiff

Trump worrying about corruption is like gangsters worrying about crime in the streets.

That is the biggest lie he has ever told!

I'm a guy putting his 7 year old to bed ... I'm not going to be investigated anything let alone what a VP did years ago and neather are you (or at least not in any meaningful way).

It's just reality; and its time we as a country accepts it and learns to move on.
