Title: Whistleblower 'didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications' between Trump and Ukraine

The whistleblower who filed a complaint with the intelligence community inspector general did not have direct knowledge of the communications between President Trump and the foreign leader in question.

The conversation was reportedly a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. It is alleged that Trump urged Zelensky multiple times to work with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to investigate Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and his ties to an energy company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch. Giuliani has previously urged a top official in Ukraine to look into the ties.

An official who has been briefed on the matter, however, told CNN that the whistleblower “didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications.” The official said that the concerns and subsequent complaint came in part from the whistleblower “learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work.”

Those details have reportedly played a role in the administration's determining that the complaint, lodged in August, didn’t fall under the reporting standards for intelligence whistleblower law.

Although many details are still unclear, the communications in question reportedly involved a “promise,” and House Democrats, as well as the elder Biden, are pushing to have the complaint and a transcript of the call between Trump and Zelensky released.

Inspector General of the Intelligence Community Michael Atkinson received the initial complaint and forwarded it to acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, who has so far refused to pass it along to Congress.

The root of the proposed investigation into Hunter Biden stems from his being a 2014 board member for the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings. While he was still vice president, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees if Ukraine did not fire its top prosecutor, who was accused of corruption and was investigating the oligarch who owned Burisma Holdings. That raised concerns of a potential conflict of interest, which could be damaging to Biden’s presidential campaign.

At the time of the prosecutor’s departure, Hunter Biden was being paid $50,000 per month for his work with the energy company. Hunter Biden left Burisma’s board earlier this year.

Both Trump and Biden have denied any wrongdoing, with Trump describing his phone call to Zelensky as “perfectly fine" and Biden saying he has never spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings.

Biden and his son are guilty as hell, but no one on the idiot Nadler's team will want to investigate that. They're too busy impeaching the president. They should investigate how Maxine Waters had money to buy a $6 million house in someone else's congressional district.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

They can't do that because they have very little support, about 90% of Democrats realize Nadler and his crew is full of schitt only the last 10% (very wacked out retards that watch CNN/MSNBC and other total bullschitt networks) think he has a shot of getting it done...

Will Hunter Biden Jeopardize His Father’s Campaign?

Joe Biden’s son is under scrutiny for his business dealings and tumultuous personal life.

By Adam Entous

July 1, 2019

[excerpt]

Several former officials in the Obama Administration and at the State Department insisted that Hunter’s role at Burisma had no effect on his father’s policies in Ukraine, but said that, nevertheless, Hunter should not have taken the board seat. As the former senior White House aide put it, there was a perception that “Hunter was on the loose, potentially undermining his father’s message.” The same aide said that Hunter should have recognized that at least some of his foreign business partners were motivated to work with him because they wanted “to be able to say that they are affiliated with Biden.” A former business associate said, “The appearance of a conflict of interest is good enough, at this level of politics, to keep you from doing things like that.”

In December, 2015, as Joe Biden prepared to return to Ukraine, his aides braced for renewed scrutiny of Hunter’s relationship with Burisma. Amos Hochstein, the Obama Administration’s special envoy for energy policy, raised the matter with Biden, but did not go so far as to recommend that Hunter leave the board. As Hunter recalled, his father discussed Burisma with him just once: “Dad said, ‘I hope you know what you are doing,’ and I said, ‘I do.’ ”

All those years in the Senate and Biden was almost always the poorest guy there, apparently refusing the hot stock tips and the advantages of knowing what and who were going to get big government contracts.

But since being VP, Biden has totally cashed in. So he lived for decades as the humble public servant only to destroy that reputation at the end of his career. And he also whored himself out, threatening Ukraine's aid for the sake of enriching his son or keeping him from being prosecuted as an accomplice of corruption in Ukraine.

Doesn't matter that much anyway. Warren has taken a lead in an Iowa poll and everything is going south for Biden now. The bleeding eye, the extensive groping of women and young girls, the daft remarks in public, the appearance of being a senile person of diminished capacity, they all argue to the Dems that Biden is not the guy for 2020, no matter how much the black segment of the Dem voting bloc thinks that he's a good pick to defeat Trump.

In short, Warren is the one. As I keep saying.     : )

The whistleblower who filed a complaint with the intelligence community inspector general did not have direct knowledge of the communications between President Trump and the foreign leader in question.

This issue has heated up.

It is questionable if the instant individual qualifies as a "whistleblower," or if said individual reported an "urgent concern" as said term is defined in the ICWPA.

The U.S. President is not part of the intelligence community, and a conversation between the U.S. President and a foreign head of state would not appear to be a U.S. "intelligence activity."

The ICWPA requirement to submit a complaint to Congress applies only to the intelligence committees of the House and Senate. If the complaint is not about an intellligence activity, it does not fall under the purview of the ICWPA.

https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/STATUTE-112/pdf/STATUTE-112-Pg2396.pdf#page=9

Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act of 1998 (PL 105-272, 112 Stat 2413, 2415)

“(G) In this paragraph:

“(i) The term “urgent concern’ means any of the following: “(I) A serious or flagrant problem, abuse, violation of law or Executive order, or deficiency relating to the funding, administration, or operations of an intelligence activity involving classified information, but does not include differences of opinions concerning public policy mat­ters.

“(II) A false statement to Congress, or a willful withholding from Congress, on an issue of material fact relating to the funding, administration, or operation of an intelligence activity.

“(III) An action, including a personnel action described in section 2302(a)(2XA) of title 5, United States Code, con­stituting reprisal or threat of reprisal prohibited under subsection (e)(3)(B) in response to an employee’s reporting an urgent concern in accordance with this paragraph.

“(ii) The term ‘intelligence committees’ means the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives and the Select Committee on Intelligence of the Senate.”.
