    yep... it was established early on that it was not a legitimate whistle blower issue within that guy's purview. He should have said... "not a valid intelligence community whistle blower complaint" .

    Trump tried to be reasonable and keep some of the long term people in place... people who should have just focused on their job. But too many turned out to be unable to separate themselves from their RESISTANCE and swamp buddies... to resist the pressure to go to the side of the sedationists. So F_em now... Trump should just put in what the asshole media calls "loyalists"..... AKA "honest people".

    About time too. Sweep out the filth.

    Atkinson circumvented DNI Joseph Maguire’s decision to not forward to Congress a Ukraine whistlblower’s complaint in the summer of 2019 as it did not contain first hand information and the regulation in question did not apply to the President. Atkinson defiantly sent it to Congress himself. The complaint ultimately led to the impeachment sham of President Trump by the crazed House of Representatives. Trump was subsequently completely acquitted by the Senate in February.

    To this day Speaker Pelosi and Adam Schiff still won’t release transcripts
    Atkinson’s secret basement testimony that exonerated President Trump and indict the alleged whistleblower of perjury.

    ~snip~

    The complaint was eventually released after a firestorm, and it revealed that Trump had asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July call to investigate Democrats. The House launched an inquiry in September, and three months later voted to impeach Trump. The Republican-led Senate acquitted Trump in February.

    And the rest leans SO far left, I'm glad the legs on my table are sturdy, or my laptop would be on the floor! LOL!

    But in all seriousness, I was rather surprised to learn that Atkinson was still there. He should've been shove off the bus AGES AGO.
    This message has been hidden because CNN is on your ignore list.

    I think Trump had to pull back for awhile, before shoving this moron off the bus.

    That bogus 'whisteblower' BS was built upon a fake accusation that Trump was going beyond his executive privilege and making illegal demands, etc.

    So it was smart of him not to immediately fire this traitor, because it would have prolonged the Ukrainian incident with the blowback.

    Now was a good time, because the government has bigger issues, and the Dems cannot afford to get sidetracked right now, like they were in January...
