A second intelligence official who was alarmed by Trump’s dealings with Ukraine is weighing whether to file his own formal whistle-blower complaint and testify to Congress, according to two people briefed on the matter.
The official has more direct information about the events than the first whistle-blower, whose complaint that Trump was using his power to get Ukraine to investigate his political rivals touched off an impeachment inquiry. The second official is among those interviewed by the intelligence community inspector general to corroborate the allegations of the original whistle-blower, one of the people said.
Things are spinning all over Washington at a dizzying rate.
Meanwhile with the Democrats…
With Elizabeth Warren either closing in on, or slightly passing, Joe Biden in the latest polls, what impact does Sanders’ sudden hospitalization for stent procedures have on the nomination process?
If Sanders were to withdraw, would his supporters flock to Warren? And if so, would she then become the clear leader for the candidacy?
And if Warren gets the nomination, does she have a better chance of beating Trump than Biden has? She still has yet to clarify her health insurance ideas, even though she is famous for “having a plan” for just about everything else.
There is some concern that if she sticks to the idea of abolishing private health insurance in favor of a mandatory Medicare for All that it will frighten away many voters who like the plans their unions fought for. That could be too much of a sudden upheaval for the complicated U.S. market. On the other hand, if she threads the needle too finely and supports a public option, what Buttigieg calls, “Medicare for all who want it,” and is supported by Biden, Harris, and Klobuchar, that Warren’s supporters might feel sold out. Warren apparently is still saying that she is looking at all options.
With the 2020 Election season upon us, this site has become even more important.
Previously “Trump Fact Book” this site was just about documenting Trump’s endless lies. That story has been told over and over again.
Now there is real movement away from Trump in key midwest battleground states which he barely won last time, such as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Those midwestern states had gone Democratic the previous 30 years, and could easily swing back again. Trump is losing among his previous supporters in those states. If even just those three states swing back, Trump will surely lose in 2020.
Thus United News Reports… We have to stick together. We have to be united. We have to end divisions and get people working together for a common cause. And we need to keep those vital midwest states in mind as we move forward and try to return decency and sanity to American politics. For everybody’s sake.
The Democratic candidate has not yet been chosen. There are some great contenders. We must unite behind the future nominee. This site will continue to shed light on the dangerous, ignorant, deranged, immature, and immoral nature of Trump as we go forward.
But more importantly, we will help unite people to defeat Trump in 2020.
And we’ll use truth, facts, and common humanity to do it!
Feel free to forward this on so we can get more subscribers. We’re just a small part of the upcoming campaign – but maybe we can make some difference. Thanks!
With the 2020 Election season upon us, this site has become even more important. I went back and forth in my mind what to do, because I feel it’s important to have say in what goes on during the election.
While I also created a FaceBook group, I think our own blog has its merits. People can search it. There is more social media exposure potential. People outside FaceBook can also easily participate. And who knows? We may become a “go to” site for facts about the upcoming election!
Previously, this site was just about documenting Trump’s endless lies. The records for those (11,000 lies tracked and counting) are universally available. While a core base of his supporters don’t seem to care, there is movement away from Trump in key battleground states which Trump barely won last time, such as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Those midwest states had gone Democratic the previous 30 years, and could easily swing again. Trump is losing badly among his previous supporters in those states right now. If even just those states swing back, Trump will surely lose.
The Democratic candidate has not yet been chosen. There are some great contenders. We must unite behind the future nominee. And this site will be here to shed light on the dangerous, ignorant, deranged, immature, feeble-minded, anti-democracy, and immoral nature of Trump as we go forward. But always with facts!
So thanks for participating going forward.
