House Democrats on Monday subpoenaed the Department of Defense and the Office of Management and Budget for documents related to President Donald Trump's decision to withhold congressionally-approved military aid from Ukraine. Three panels — the House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Oversight committees — have demanded that the two agencies turn over the trove of documents by Oct. 15. "The committees are investigating the extent to which President Trump jeopardized national security by pressing Ukraine to interfere with our 2020 election and by withholding military assistance provided by Congress to help Ukraine counter Russian aggression, as well as any efforts to cover up these matters," House Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings wrote in a joint letter.

How is the OP supposed to spam when he's got to actually take the time to write something of substance?

Getting things done like their promised gun control, immigration reform (including aid to DACA recipients), infrastructure bill, climate change bill, etc etc?

This has been going on for 3 years. So if that's getting things done...and still have the Senate to pass...

God Bless the Constitution!

How is Barr and the IG reports not going to deflate anything. Then they go on vacation in NOV and almost all of DEC. Then it has to go to the Senate and they need time as well to build their evidence...meh. This is going to take forever and that's if nothing else major happens which never happens. Something always pops up.

“So the form that the whistleblower filled out — he actually filled out the old form that said you had to have firsthand knowledge. The whistleblower readily admits he doesn’t have firsthand knowledge. So conveniently the IG did this, claims that was always the case, claims it wasn’t the law; I already told you, he’s going to have more questions to answer,” he said.

My "favorite" quote from the interview:


thand knowledge. “First of all, you have the change of the forms. … You no longer had to have firsthand information; you had to have secondhand information. Clearly they backdated it to August. The evidence is clear that it didn’t change on the website until the 25th of September,” he said. “So the form that the whistleblower filled out — he actually filled out the old form that said you had to have firsthand knowledge. The whistleblower readily admits he doesn’t have firsthand knowledge. So conveniently the IG did this, claims that was always the case, claims it wasn’t the law; I already told you, he’s going to have more questions to answer,” he said.

Links? How would one even debunk that? How does anyone except the IG himself know what is really in his mind and heart... and therefore what motivated him?

Watchdog, experts debunk Trump claim whistleblower rules changed before complaint



Ever since the whistleblower complaint focused on President Donald Trump's Ukraine call was released to the public, he and his allies have repeatedly questioned how the intelligence community handled the matter -- trying to discredit the account because it's based on second-hand information -- not direct, first-hand knowledge of the alleged wrongdoing.



The intelligence community inspector's general's office released a statement Monday evening disputing any recent change in the whistleblower form. “With respect to the whistleblower complaint received by the ICIG on August 12, 2019, the ICIG processed and reviewed the complaint in accordance with the law,” read a statement from the intelligence community inspector general's office (ICIG) dated Sept. 30. “The Disclosure of Urgent Concern form the Complainant submitted on August 12, 2019 is the same form the ICIG has had in place since May 24, 2018,” the statement said. National security lawyers who specialize in whistleblower complaints told ABC News that whistleblowers have never been required to have direct knowledge of alleged wrongdoing in order to file a complaint. “In no way, shape or form was anything changed as a matter of law,” said national security lawyer Brad Moss. “The law has never said that a whistleblower couldn't have second information because that would unnecessarily restrict an inordinate amount of whistleblowing allegations coming forward because most people don’t have the first-hand information.”


Debunked.

Fake news.

Try to keep up with something based in fact.
