What I heard was someone was privy to a conversation Trump had with another world leader and the whistleblower believes it puts the US in a bad position to be used by this foreign power. Didn't hear who it was or what was divulged,  could be nothing but it does need to be looked into.

It’s another poke at creating a constitutional crisis.  Law has specific guidelines about what is or isn’t something that needs to be given to congress.  Zero guidance on remedy if agencies or individuals refuse.  

 

If true that it’s about a promise made to a foreign government by Trump on a phone call it gets even more outside the box.

"Shockingly, it turns out that President Trump appears to be directly implicated in the remarkable tale of the mysterious whistleblower complaint that has yet to be transmitted to Congress, in direct violation of the law.

 

The new details emerging about Trump’s involvement in this story are damning on their own. But they also illustrate a broad theme of the Trump presidency: How his enablers keep wheeling the machinery of government into action to insulate his corruption from accountability.

 

The Post reports that the whistleblower who submitted a complaint to the intelligence community’s inspector general did so after growing alarmed by a call Trump held with an unspecified foreign leader. Former officials tell The Post that the whistleblower was particularly troubled by some sort of “promise” Trump made to that leader.

This new reporting also sheds light on how this process has been deeply perverted to prevent the facts of this situation from reaching Congress.

 

...To quickly recap, acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire failed to transmit the whistleblower’s complaint to Congress’ intelligence committees, even though the DNI inspector general deemed it “credible” and of “urgent concern,” triggering a statutory requirement that he do so. Maguire has continued to refuse, citing specious legal reasoning."  WP, "As the whistleblower story gets worse for Trump, his corruption keeps spreading"

 

Corruption being exposed?   This could be interesting

The topic "what's this story about" you started a thread because you don't know... that's hilarious 

 

How are you going to discuss the story if you don't know what the story is about?

Here's the skinny as best as I can glean.

 

August 12, - a whistleblower within the Intelligence community filed a complaint about a phone conversation between the WH and a foreign leader.

 

-The complaint was filed with the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), a role currently filled by Michael Atkinson, a former Justice Department official who was nominated by Trump to this post and confirmed in 2018.

 

- The complaint was filed in accordance with a law called the Intelligence Community Whistleblowers’ Protection Act (ICWPA) — which basically establishes the “proper” way for people who work in the intelligence world to file a complaint though official channels (instead of just, say, leaking the complaint, which could involve classified information, to the media). Under that law, Atkinson had 14 days to determine two things whether the complaint was an “urgent concern” and whether it was credible. Atkinson decided that it was, on both fronts.

 

-Next, per the ICWPA, is that Atkinson had to send the complaint along to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) — currently headed by Joseph Maguire, who has filled the post of director of national intelligence (DNI) on an acting basis since Dan Coats resigned in August. Atkinson did so. After that, Maguire was supposed to send along the full complaint to the congressional intelligence committees within 7 days — by September 2, in this case.

 

-Maguire did not in violation apparently of the law.
