    Then there is this

    Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko denied reports that President Trump pressured Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky during a July phone call that is reportedly the subject of a whistleblower complaint.

    He wasn't on the call. I guess that makes that a rumor.

    ...so you know who it was that filed the complaint? Or are you just relaying something you have no direct knowledge of? :scratch:

    Got this feeling that this is going to blow up in someone’s face.

    Again.

    Personally I think this happening repeatedly is part of what will help a second term. People are not stupid and you can yell wolf so many times.

    People are beginning to just not listen to it anymore.

    The CNN article referred to by the OP says:
    However, IG Atkinson found the matter both urgent and credible - enough to warrant a thorough investigation by Congress.

    People who stick their fingers in their ears tend not to hear much.

    Respectfully your thread is, shall I say, somewhat presumptuous to call it a rumor. As explained in the reports, it's important to understand that in a whistle blower complaint, it's the Inspector General that looks into it and determines whether it is credible and/or urgent. In this case it is reported that he has determined it to be both credible and urgent.

    Not only this, but Trump and Giuliani have already pretty much confirmed the reports.

    And people who follow every accusation presented have been steadily disappointed for three years.

    Are you speaking for other people or have you been following every accusation?

    Is that why Paul Manafort is in prison?

    Why would you even bother to defend him, if you don't care if he's crooked or not? Is it to fool us or fool yourself?

    I haven't been disappointed in the way the obstruction of justice and campaign finance violation allegations have played out even if he's currently shielded from prosecution.

    Nixon wasn't shielded from being investigated for the Watergate scandal while he was the President and Trump shouldn't be shielded from being investigated while he's still the President either. But if he manages to avoid being impeached, then he could possibly face some criminal charges when he's out of office. He could face some hefty federal charges, as well as face criminal charges in New York.

    The 5 crimes Mueller suggests Trump could be charged with

    Mueller: Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice after leaving office

    Here come the New York State criminal charges against the Trump Organization

    Trump simply needs to release the transcript for an epic blow up.

    I believe @essentialsaltes was too subtle in pointing out this morning's feast of irony:

    So to be clear:

    This is a bad thing, right? Claiming knowledge of something gained as hearsay


    So the foreign minister wasn't on that call either, but this apparently is a good thing, right? Claiming knowledge of something gained as hearsay.

    I think this trend of the American right to disbelieve what their countrymen say and believe what people from foreign countries say will lead to interesting times.

    Well...I can't speak for everyone but I'M not disappointed, investigating the allegations has done what investigations should do: provide answers. Right or wrong, knowing the truth is better then not knowing the truth. :wave:
    tulc(is actually have way more fun then he first anticipated having) :oldthumbsup:

    Well...when pretty much all President Trump does is make stuff up, it's kind of hard to for the teleprompter writers to know which made up stuff to prepare in advance. :wave:

    Donald uses the same 50 words on a loop. Not an eloquent man.
