Obviously, this is all ... WRONG! It is NOT supposed to work this way. Yes, the U.S. federal procurement system is flawed (as is any large, complex system involving humans), but ... this is extraordinarily inappropriate (and dispiriting) information. /1
/2 In the (current) dystopia of @realDonaldTrump-world, the fight for survival among businesses related to the #Covid_19 fight — and for a slice of the billions of (taxpayer) dollars going out the door — is about political influence.😡…

The man who shot and killed 26 people at a church in #Texas in 2017 used guns he wouldn’t have been able to purchase if the @USAirForce had properly managed its records.

Article by @IvanPentchoukov (Thread👇)…
On 6 occasions, #Military officials failed to send Devin Kelley’s records to @FBI while the @USAirForce investigated, court-martialed, and imprisoned him for abusing his wife and stepson.
Rather than being an anomaly, the preventable failures that contributed to the massacre are a symptom of a vast problem spanning the entire federal government, according to two experts with decades of experience—Daryll Prescott and Don Lueders.

@nytimes It appears Trump’s Attorney General is using his office to conduct a campaign of harassment & intimidation of US officials who have gathered evidence about crimes committed by Trump & his associates.
@nytimes If the AG has conspired with the White House or any private lawyers, staff or associates of @POTUS, he would be engaging in illegal coordination to obstruct ongoing criminal & counter-intelligence investigations targeting Trump & his network.
@nytimes @POTUS If any of his actions, or orders he has issued to any other person, involve an effort to taint confirmed evidence or sway the testimony of witnesses, his actions or orders would be unlawful & would warrant his referral for criminal prosecution.

h/t to those throwing around this name a week or so ago, including @Larry_Beech and @JackPosobiec. If confirmed, this is just more evidence that the information age has made it so the ruling cabal will never regain it's grip, in that behind every keyboard lies a journalist. #KAG
BREAKING: Alleged #Whistleblower Eric Ciaramella ran the meeting that @jsolomonReports was "one of the earliest documented efforts to build the now-debunked Trump-Russia collusion narrative". @AndriyUkraineTe please confirm.……

An anonymous #Whistleblower whose complaint prompted an #ImpeachmentInquiry misled the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) about his or her communications with Congress, according to a source familiar with details of the complaint. (Thread 👇)…
The source told @EpochTimes that the #Whistleblower didn’t check the box to disclose whether they previously communicated the allegations to “Congress or congressional committees.”
Not checking the box is misleading, if not outright false, since @RepAdamSchiff admitted that his staff had communicated with the #Whistleblower prior to the filing of the complaint.

The misleading answer on the application may put the whistleblower in legal peril.

Former US @SpecRepUkraine #KurtVolker provided testimony to the #HouseIntelligenceCommittee on Oct 3.

He contradicted several of the claims of the #WhistleblowerComplaint at the center of the Democrat's #ImpeachmentInquiry of President Trump. (Thread 👇)…
Volker told lawmakers he did not partake in urging #Ukraine to investigate @JoeBiden.

The testimony directly contradicted a hearsay claim in the anonymous #WhistleblowersComplaint suggesting that #Volker and the @USAmbEU, #GordonSondland engaged with Ukrainian officials to…
…help them handle Trump’s request to investigate #Biden.

“[At] no time was I aware of or took part in an effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden,” Volker said.…

There’s positively no way @AdamSchiff didn’t see the #WhistleblowerComplaint way before everyone else. In his Sept. 9th letter to @realDonaldTrump counsel he cites the exact same source and quote from the complaint. @HouseIntel @JusticeOIG
@AdamSchiff @realDonaldTrump @HouseIntel @JusticeOIG @Jim_Jordan @DevinNunes @RepMarkMeadows This is the source cited, a google search of the dates before the #WhistleblowersComplaint shows zero results for the quote or citation, how and why would @RepAdamSchiff zero in on this phone call if he hadn't seen it?…
@AdamSchiff @realDonaldTrump @HouseIntel @JusticeOIG @Jim_Jordan @DevinNunes @RepMarkMeadows @RepAdamSchiff Furthermore there's nothing in the translation that would raise any alarm bells. The Sept. 9th letter was written BEFORE Schiff raised his fake concern to @ODNIgov IG about a mysterious complaint he hadn't seen.

@megynkelly Liar.

The #whistleblower went to House Intelligence *after*
1) "he learned that John Eisenberg, a deputy White House counsel and the legal adviser to NSA Bolton, was among those scrutinizing his initial allegation" #WhistleblowerComplaint
@megynkelly 2) "White House lawyers had authorized records of Trump’s call with Zelensky to be put in a highly classified computer system, meaning that the lawyers who were helping the CIA investigate the officer’s allegations were the same ones implicated in them."
@megynkelly "The whistleblower followed the advice of Schiff’s aide & filed his complaint to IC IG Atkinson. And though DNI Maguire blocked him from forwarding it to Congress, he did allow Atkinson to notify lawmakers of its existence."

🚨JFC >> SO Trump acknowledged Russia’s election interference to Lavrov & Kislyak IN THE OVAL OFFICE!! Then said he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in U.S. election b/c US did the same thing. The Washington Post…
🚨And here’s how it connects to #UkraineGate #WhistleblowerComplaint: The memo summarizing Trump’s Oval Offic meeting—where he told Russians #Russia’s election interference was OK—was limited to all but a few with the highest security clearances to keep it hidden. #Maddow #Inners
“White House officials were particularly distressed by Trump’s election remarks because it appeared the president was forgiving Russia for an attack that had been designed to help elect him…Trump also seemed to 🔥invite Russia to interfere🔥in other countries’ elections” #Maddow

When you read the whistleblower complaint, it becomes clear what Trump’s endgame was.
He and Putin wanted to plant a false narrative that would benefit them both.
Cherry picking existing facts to prop up the fake narrative, they were concocting a story that would have high rewards for both men: Trump’s re-election and the turning of US/global opinion against Ukraine.

1/ It seems inaccurate at this moment to call this the "United" States of America. Not only are we not united, we seem to be a people existing in two separate realities. In one, the #WhistleblowerComplaint is a matter of serious concern. In the other, the issue means nothing.
2/ Or perhaps it means something, but whatever that something is, it is rendered acceptable because there are — maybe, possibly, perhaps — other people out there who have done similar things, maybe, possibly, perhaps?
3/ That’s a childish argument, and it exists only in that side of our two realities. If you can look at the summary of Donald Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president and, knowing all we publicly know about Trump...

😲 The whistleblower, a U.S. intelligence official, accused senior White House officials of a COVER-UP, saying they “intervened to lock down all records of the phone call. #ResignNow #WhistleblowerComplaint…

BOOM! #WhistleblowerComplaint - “not the first time”

“In the days following the phone call..senior White House officials had intervened to ‘lock down’ all records of the phone call, especially the official word-for-word transcript of the call that was produced- as is customary.. the White House Situation Room...White House officials...were ‘directed’ by White House lawyers to remove the electronic transcript from the computer system in which such transcripts are typically stored. Instead, the transcript was loaded into a separate..
..system to store..classified information of an especially... sensitive nature. One White House official described this act as an abuse of this..system because...the call did not contain anything remotely sensitive from a national security perspective...

The OLC lawyers who signed off on the coverup should appear in public, under oath, and explain how the #WhistleblowerComplaint’s allegation about placing the readout in the wrong database DOESN’T affect intel comms wrongdoing.

That opinion is a disgrace.

Thugs with JDs.
The idea that it’s not under DNI purview because one individual is the President negates the reality of all the other people who were:
- on or aware of the call and engaged in coverup
- assisting Rudy from within the IC, including at State
- involved in the recall of Ambassador
Is there a crime-fraud exception to Executive Privilege? (Asking for a friend)

Reading the #WhistleblowerComplaint now. Which you can, too, if you want here:…

Here are the highlights as I read through it.
Claims Rudy Giuliani is a "central figure" in this presidency attempting to obtain foreign assistance to win the 2020 election.
Whistleblower admits they're not an eyewitness to any of these events, but were informed of them by more than a half dozen other U.S. government officials.

Please amplify this short thread so media and Dem leadership see it. Can’t look at #Ukraine as a one-off. Trump has basically reduced the US Government to a family business with loyal kleptocrats. Giuliani not the only problem. Kushner too is freelancing against US interests 1/
#WhistleblowerComplaint says Ukraine is not first instance of hiding communications. We already know the Saudi interactions kept US embassy officials out of the loop and even used MBS’ security instead of ours. No ears to listen. What’sApp for texts 2/
Crime bosses use family to (usually) protect each other. Fixers like #Giuliani and #MichaelCohen play roles. But if you want to corrupt the entire government apparatus, you need apparatchiks who will play along. These people might not get confirmed. Voilà - “acting” appointees 3/

Here's the PDF of the #WhistleblowerComplaint. This story is just beginning.…
Here's what jumps out at me:

1) After the call, White House lawyers allegedly discussed its legal implications

2) There is a word-for-word transcript of the call

3) Senior White House officials allegedly moved to lock down all records of the call
4) The White House allegedly moved records of the call to highly classified system, although the call did not addressed such matters

5) After the call, the US envoy for Ukraine and EU ambo allegedly advised Ukraine leaders on how to "navigate" Trump demands

Bill Barr and Rudy Giuliani, aggressive Trump loyalists, are going to have a lot of explaining to do — under oath, most likely — for their roles in the Ukraine whistleblower saga.…

Good morning. In a little under an hour at 9AM ET the House Intelligence Committee will hear testimony from acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire.
My live-tweet thread begins here.

@CourthouseNews "This interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President's main
domestic political rivals. The President's personal lawyer, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, is a central figure in this effort. AG Barr appears to be involved as well."
