#REDFLAG: The Intelligence Community whistleblower complaint about Trump’s communications with a foreign leader centers on UKRAINE.

Trump made a "promise" to the foreign leader that poses an urgent threat to our national security/intelligence interests.

#REMEMBER: Ukrainian prosecutors dropped investigations into Manafort + Kilimnik, let Kilimnik flee to Russia out of reach, and withdrew their offer to cooperate with Mueller...

Then, Trump finally approved long-pending defensive weapons sales to Ukraine.
#REDFLAG: Trump pressured President Zelensky of Ukraine to investigate the Bidens EIGHT TIMES on a July 25th call.

He urged Zelensky to work w/ Giuliani.

Giuliani pressed Ukrainian officials in 2 meetings this summer; one set up by the State Department.

#REDFLAG: The July 25th call is central to the Whistleblower complaint, part of a broader set of facts.

We don't know if Trump explicitly raised the $250M in aid to extort Zelensky, but DAYS LATER, the WH announced they were holding and reviewing the aid.
#REDFLAG: Trump told acting-Chief of Staff Mulvaney to HOLD BACK defensive aid for Ukraine...DAYS before his July 25th phone call where he pressured President Zelensky to investigate the Bidens.

#BREAKING: Trump authorizes the release the transcript of his July 25th call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.

Notably, he did so within hours of Democrats' meeting and potential announcement of a full-House resolution to support the Impeachment Inquiry.
#REMEMBER: When Nixon initially released the transcripts of his oval office tapes, they were EDITED with omissions.

#REDFLAG: So he's going to release the transcript in some form...

But NOT hand over the Whistleblower Complaint to Congress?

1. Can we verify the transcript?

2. An explicit Quid-Pro-Quo is not required.

3. We must demand the release of the Complaint.

#NEW: Schiff announces that the Whistleblower's lawyer would like to testify to the Intel Committees in Congress directly.

However, the law lays out steps for him to do so lawfully.

We'll see if/how the administration plans to block him.

#BREAKING: Speaker Pelosi WILL announce a full-House-backed resolution to support an Impeachment Inquiry.
