The #Whistleblower could well blow the lid off three-plus years of Trump/Russia shenanigans and expose Trump as the traitor he is, for all the world to see.

Let’s break it down:

1/ Per reports, the whistleblower reported on a “promise” Trump made to a “foreign leader” on the phone. The only foreign leader of consequence Trump spoke to on the phone in the relevant timeframe is—mirabile dictu—Vladimir Putin.
2/ Putin must realize that Trump is on thin ice, that impeachment is coming, that even Russian cyber-sabotage can’t make him win an election he loses by 8 million popular votes. If Vova wants any more juice, the time to squeeze the orange is now.
3/ I have been screaming about Trump/Russia since January 2016. To me, and to followers of this feed, the seditious phone call does not come as a surprise. But IF it was Putin on the line, and IF promises were made that compromise national security, Trump's presidency is over.
4/ Recall that Trump ALREADY surrendered top secret intelligence to Kislyak and Lavrov when those Russian jackals visited the OVAL OFFICE—a visit only the Russian press got to photograph. Somehow he survived that.

There would be no way to spin the new bombshell, if true.
5/ Below is a timeline of recent, relevant events (h/t @operativexray & @patricklsimpson for the initial timelines I’m expanding on):
7/28: Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence—one of the few grown-ups left in the Trump universe—announces he is resigning soon.

7/31: As wildfires rage in CA, Trump calls Putin to, we’re told, offer help with the wildfires in Russia.
8/2: For no apparent reason, the US pulls out of INF Treaty, because what could be better than allowing Putin to use intermediate-range nuclear missiles?

8/6: Jon Huntsman, the US ambassador to Russia and not an obvious Trump loyalist, resigns.
8/8: Coats advises Sue Gordon, who would replace him as DNI, to follow him out the door.

8/12: The #Whistleblower complaint is filed.

8/15: Coats steps down as DNI. Sue Gordon also resigns.
8/16: Joseph MAGAuire takes over as Acting Director of National Intelligence, attempts to hold on to the hot-potato whistleblower complaint, in brazen defiance of the law that he turn over report to Schiff/House Intelligence.
8/25: At the G7 in Biarritz, Trump insists that Russia be allowed to re-join. In private, his defense of Putin is more vociferous than his public statements, reports say.

9/9: News breaks about the CIA being forced to exfiltrate a Moscow mole in 2017.
9/10: John Bolton, the national security adviser who was at odds with Trump, likely for not kissing the ring on Trump’s puny finger, resigns/was fired/leaves.

9/13: After the whistleblower story breaks, Schiff issues a subpoena to MAGAuire.
9/16: Yahoo breaks Russia/FBI spy story.

9/16: Traitor Ed "Snowjob" Snowden appears on CBS This Morning to promote his book.

9/17: Explosion at Russian smallpox storage facility.
9/17: Lewandowski testifies, marking start of formal impeachment inquiry.

9/18: WaPo breaks the “foreign leader” story about Trump.
6/ Yes, I know . “Nothing will happen.” “Trump always gets away with it.” “What are they waiting for.”

Spare me, please.

The wheels of justice grind slow, my friends, but they grind absolutely. This time, his teensy hand is caught in the Kremlin cookie jar.
7/ The preparations for impeachment have been made. The I’s are dotted, the t’s are crossed. All we need per Pelosi, is for the public to get onboard.

Trump making secret promises to Putin that run counter to US interests WHILE IN THE OVAL OFFICE is about as damning as it gets.
Les jeux sont faits, mother*ckers.

Make NO mistake.
