    White House and DOJ recommend holding whistle blower complaint from Congress

    Is this a surprise to anyone?

    This is a departure from the law. It's spelled out, in black and white, that complaints such as this from a whistle blower that's been deemed by the Inspector General to be 'urgent', will be covered up by Trump and the DNI. The complaint cleared an initial hurdle when the Inspector General Michael Atkinson, deemed it credible and began to pursue an investigation. But it has prompted a standoff between lawmakers and the acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, who has refused to turn it over to Congress, as is required by law.

    Trump claims this is 'fake news'. Sounding authoritarian much yet? Really people, get a grip on reality and see things for what they are not for what Trump or Fox tells you they are. The writing is on the wall for everyone to see. The president and DNI are obstructing justice and in this case it may indeed be a serious matter of national security. Don't you care enough about this country to show at least a little concern or curiosity as to what this "urgent" alarm was all about?

    Just maybe if the left wasn't so filled with fake news every day, you might get some attention. After crying wolf hundreds of times, day in and day out, nobody believes this crap anymore.

    Thats what you get for constantly crying and whining over an election from two and a half years ago.

    We don't buy the fake outrage anymore.

    Who the hell are you kidding? Facts have not been chic for the right since 1940.

    When is the Republican Party finally going to stand up to this?

    Robert Mueller said he didn’t clear Trump of obstruction, and his report contained over 30 examples of obstruction. Trump is corrupt and an obstructionist, and he isn’t going to stop. The DOJ is simply functioning to protect Trump and has been politically corrupted by Trump.

    WTF is the GOP doing?

    I agree that the MSM is a massive failure. Where you’re wrong, is thinking the right wing media isn’t lying to you. If can’t see how corrupt Trump is, how politicized the DOJ is, or how all this is dangerous, then right wing media has failed in informing you. Right wing media and MSM are worse than they were under GWB.

    It’s going to a while for Trump supporters to actually admit supporting Trump and giving him the power of the presidency was wrong, just like most people now admit the war in Iraq was wrong.

    I agree with the gist of your post. There is more afoot here than just a suspect POTUS.

    I have no faith in our system of checks and balances left. Trump could have betrayed the country and Republicans will allow it and cover it up. They don't give a ****. Moving on...

    Vote against every Republican up and down the ticket and advise all of your friends and relatives to do the same.

    There's an old axiom, that I believe dovetails well with your post:

    Well then, allow me to retort.

    1. Trump is a planted Russia agent who is secretly working for Putin
    2. Bret Kavanaugh is an alcoholic high school rape train conductor
    3. Trump had Russian Oligarchs co-signing all his loans with Deutsche Bank
    4. Trump owes the Russians billions of dollars and is why he works for Putin
    5. Trumps aids were caught traveling to Russia to secretly met with the Russian government
    6. We have pictures of Russian hookers peeing on Trump
    7. If Trump is elected the stock market will crash
    8. The first Lady hates Mexican kids on the border because her jacket said so
    9. Trump wants to kill Mexicans which is why he sent the National Guard to the border
    10. Trump is a Nazi and hates his own Jewish grand children

    I have about 40 more but that should give you an idea of how stupid the left has become.

    Everyone is tired of the fake outrage, fake news, and fake Liberals.

    No worries, guys. An anonymous source told me Trump was talking to Trudeau, and promised not to tweet any jokes about the blackface thing.

    So we're good...
    "In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” Trump said, standing beside Vice President Pence. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”
