iPhone : Now look at date.
9/9/19 is the same day that IG Atkinson tells house and senate intel about whistleblower complaint. Two days later, the money for Ukraine is released.

Trump, Sunday: The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, No Conditions. That is an incorrect statement (as usual!).

iPhone : Intel Committee aides tell me they get 2 to 3 complaints a month, and they tell everybody the same thing: Go through the IG process. Thats what appears to have happened here. The only impact of the heads-up was that Schiff knew to make a stink when the complaint was withheld.

iPhone : Stunning talk on Morning Edition with ex-US diplomat. Friend of Kurt Volker, Ukraine envoy enlisted in President Trumps effort to investigate a rival. Jim Melville calls newly released text messages disturbing, compares his friend Volker to the story of a frog, slowly boiled.
