The whistle-blower complaint is now available. The allegation is deemed credible and urgent.
Apparently there was a conspiracy to withhold allocated foreign aid to coerce a foreign power to pursue an investigation of a US citizen by that foreign power in order to advance a partisan political agenda. There was an attempt to thwart record-keeping of that activity.
WH lawyers instructed staff to delete the electronic transcript of “the call” from the WH computer system (this was not the first time such data has been deleted)
Multiple officials knew of this activity and it occurred over a series of events.
The underlying story has a basis in the shift in Ukraine leadership.

1. The July 25 phone call: Multiple White House officials told the whistleblower that they were “deeply disturbed” by what transpired in the phone call
Worth noting: The whistleblower didn't directly witness the events, but said the witness accounts were accurate “because, in almost all cases, multiple officials recounted fact patterns that were consistent with one another.”
