Whistleblower complaint about President Trump involves Ukraine, according to two people familiar wit

Source: Washington Post

A whistleblower complaint about President Trump made by an intelligence official centers on Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the matter, which has set off a struggle between Congress and the executive branch.

The complaint involved communications with a foreign leader and a “promise” that Trump made, which was so alarming that a U.S. intelligence official who had worked at the White House went to the inspector general of the intelligence community, two former U.S. officials said.

Two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed, Trump spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian and political newcomer who was elected in a landslide in May.

1. Trump was making promises if Ukraine sabotaged Biden

My guess is that trump promised to help Ukraine if they delivered dirt on Biden or his son.

8. Sweet JESUS.

This is being discussed on Lawrence O'Donnell right now..."every "Quid Pro Quo" involving Trump has always been for his political or financial benefit, not for the country or anyone else."

OK, so let's say that the dots connect to the Trump / Giuliani scheme to involve Ukraine in sabotaging Biden.

How the FUCK do we let that stand?
