At least one major part of the “whistleblower” memo is false AND this also proves one of their White House moles was misinformed or lying too

“The call [with Ukraine] did not contain anything remotely sensitive from a national security perspective”

A “White House official” is quoted by the whistleblower (WB) as objecting to the storage of the MEMCON transcript of @realDonaldTrump call with Zelenskyy in a secure storage system in the NSC. This was wrong (a cover up) because it contained “nothing remotely sensitive”. Nothing!
That’s categorically, 100% false. The President’s call with Zelenskyy contained references to both POTUS’s and the Ukrainian President’s opinions on multiple European countries and leaders, especially Germany/France and Merkel/Macron, as well as sanctions policy towards Russia
That’s why when originally classified the transcript was set at the SECRET, Original Classification Authority (ORCON), No Foreign Distribution (NOFORN) level
That classification was set because the diplomatic view of the United States (and POTUS) towards other countries and leaders can “cause serious damage to national security” if disclosed in an unauthorized way. In this case it could also damage the national security of Ukraine too
To prove the point, @Comey was referred to the IG and DOJ for potential prosecution because just *one* of his memos contained a *tiny* amount of similar information: POTUS’s views on the relative importance of two countries (one of which was Russia) and when to return their calls
Comey’s content was far milder & only 6 words, but even it was classified at the CONFIDENTIAL level, I.e would cause “damage to national security”

Trump’s transcript was SECRET because it had far more info AND far stronger views about a *key US foreign policy*: Russia sanctions
The fact Trump has since been forced into disclosing the transcript is irrelevant

At the time, a SECRET classification was clearly warranted and the call DID contain sensitive national security information
The WB and their White House official mole were wrong, or lying when they said the transcript “did not contain anything remotely sensitive”

Now, what else is wrong about their complaint and what else are they & their sources lying or misinformed about?

N.B. the wording of the complaint also suggests the whistleblower was a senior member of or very close colleague of the National Security Council in the White House. But that will be revealed soon enough...
Oh so we’re up to two major errors already
FOUR major errors and counting

“The President also praised Ukraine’s Prosecutor General, Mr. Yuriy Lutsenko”

— Trump didn’t mention Lutsenko, in fact he praised Shokin (his predecessor fired for looking into Biden) so that doesn’t even make any sense

h/t @seanmdav
FIVE major errors

WB relies on an anonymous “former Ukrainian prosecutor” to claim Ukrainian General Prosecutor Viktor Shokin “was not in fact investigating Burisma at the time of his removal”

REALITY: Shokin swore in affidavit he WAS investigating Burisma
h/t @jsolomonReports
Now SIX major errors, if US Amb Volker testimony is accurate, and no reason to believe it isn’t:

SEVEN errors

WB 2 page “pre-memo” v transcript

“[POTUS] told Zelensky that he would be sending his personal lawyer...Rudy Giuliani, to Ukraine soon and requested that Zelensky meet with him. Zelensky *reluctantly* agreed that, if Giuliani travelled to Ukraine, he would see him”
Worth adding that it was Zelenskyy that mentioned Giuliani first, not Trump. The whistleblower is lying about the call or the “White House official” is, or both.
