The mysterious Intelligence Community “whistleblower” case now looks like a coordinated Democrat effort to block any investigation of presidential candidate Joe Biden for corruptly using pressure on Ukraine to drop the investigation of Burisma, an energy company operating in the country, on which his son, Hunter Biden, was a board member.
In March 2016, then Vice-President Joe Biden warned Ukraine that $1 billion in loan guarantees would be withheld by the U.S. unless they replaced Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general who was investigating Hunter Biden. Ukraine did remove Shokin, and the prosecution was dropped. It looks like a clear case of a quid-pro-quo.
However, as things are starting to shake out, the current obfuscation to protect Joe Biden is President Trump asking Ukraine’s new president Volodymyr Zelensky to take another look at the issues surrounding the former government’s decision to fire the Ukrainian prosecutor.
This is presumably the call that was concerning to the whistleblower.

The nerve, gaul, adacity, effrontery of Trump. Obama would never try to hurt his political enemies by looking into their potential crimes himself personally.
Say what you want about Obama but he did it with class and grace. He used the DNC, FBI, CIA, NSA, FISA courts and other entities.
Rudy Giuliani addresses annual meeting of an Iranian exile group
Thousands of supporters of the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (MEK), an exiled opposition group, gathered in a northern Paris suburb for an annual rally. This year's rally, called "Free Iran 2018 - The Alternative" - aimed at planting the seeds for regime change in the Islamic Republic.
The US State Department considered the MEK a terrorist group until 2012, when it lifted the designation.
