Whistle-blower: “There are other witnesses to (a pattern of) disturbing conduct”

Even if a sitting POTUS* cannot be indicted, plenty of others are coming into view after the rough memo of the Trump conversation with Ukraine president Zelensky.

Now that the whistle-blower complaint has reached the Congressional committees, new questions will emerge for the IC IG about the involvement of other figures like AG Barr and Giuliani. Trump in his presser suggested that VP Pence was more involved.

Acting DNI director McGuire will be speaking to Congress as will the IC IG.

Months after the US Ambassador to Ukraine was unexpectedly recalled from her post, President Donald Trump disparaged the career diplomat in a call with his Ukrainian counterpart, a White House transcript released on Wednesday revealed.

Trump's comments about Marie Yovanovitch — a member of his own country's diplomatic corps — are a stunning breach of norms, former officials say, and lend credence to the claim that her early departure from the post was politically motivated.
“The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just want to let you know that,” Donald Trump told Volodymyr Zelensky in a July 25 call, according to a White House transcript released Wednesday.
Zelensky, who was elected in April 2019, echoed the US President's sentiment, saying “I agree with you 100%.”
“She's going to go through some things,” Trump added.
