1. We now know

that the whistleblower is a he.

I'm also curious to know what would rise to the level of explosive. Did tRump threaten Ukraine with some threat from Putin as retaliation or was there some other form of threat posed, like outing Ukrainian spies in Russia or something along those lines?

Sounds like tRump gone done stepped in it and Nancy's got him by the short hairs.

2. I have wondered if it is Dan Coats or someone who worked for him...

I also believe there are multiple witnesses that will be referenced and who will eventually testify....

We shall see...

3. I found what she had to say as particularly illuminating since she's actually seen the complaint

And she said as much as she could. I'm also curious about exactly what's "explosive" about what they learned, since what we know already is bad enough. The fact that we know Trump communicates with Putin makes me extremely suspicious - as if this wasn't bad enough by itself. And why the Republicans aren't outraged by that is totally baffling to me. I visited the USSR with my grandmother and her peace group just before Reagan's meeting in Reykjavík with Gorbachev and the Russians we spoke with were extremely apprehensive since Reagan was such a hard liner with Gorbachev - who was trying to institute reforms. What happened to the Republicans boggles the mind - Trump has no policies at all, he's only in this for himself. And I wouldn't be surprised if any threats he made involved Putin's agenda.

Kudos to Speaker Pelosi, we're lucky to have someone with her experience in the leadership position when it comes to dealing with Trump. I sure hope she's finally got him where she wants him and I'm grateful that so many congresspeople are finally stepping up. As with Watergate, they'll be remembered as being on the right side of history.
