The national Whistleblower Act was changed just before this 'whistheblower' came out to allow information from second hand. How conveniant!Hombre wrote:Since 9/11 all 17 US Intelligence services DO share information with each other. It is then culled & streamlined by DNI for the President's Daily Briefing. (trump is the only Prez who refused this service). It is within that realm where the Whistleblower had received his info.
But even more important:
Trump had every right to ask Ukraine to cooperate or assist in an official Department of Justice investigation into the origins of the Russia “collusion” hoax. His request was pursuant to an official probe being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham and initiated by Attorney General William Barr. In fact, Ukraine is required to comply under a binding treaty with the U.S.
The Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters obligates Ukraine to provide, upon request by the U.S., assistance “in connection with the investigation, prosecution, and prevention of offenses, and in proceedings related to criminal matters.” This treaty was negotiated by then-president Bill Clinton more than 20 years ago and approved by the U.S. Senate. Among other things, Ukraine agreed to furnish “documents, records, the taking of testimony or statements of persons” relevant to any U.S. investigation.
It's still only unethical behavior unless you can prove that Jared Kushner has access to the allocation process of so-called EB-5 visa.Hombre wrote:I still stand by my comment. Hunter business in Ukraine had different purpose then Kushner one in China. Moreover, from what I have been reading. Hunter's work in Ukrain was part of US's (Under Obama & Biden Sr) overall strategy to lure Ukrain into the Western orbit & a close ally to US right under Putin's doorstep. Conservative have a very vivid imagination.
The Biden campaign requested MSM outlets to silence Trump's laywer Rudy Guiliani this weekend. That preciously what Joe Biden did with the Ukraine prosecutor investigating his son's business.Hombre wrote:Don't believe me. But I do hope you will believe to one of your own conservative commentators on FartNews.
Hunter Biden had no expertise on legal affairs of a natural gas and oil company Burisma in the Ukraine. The only thing he was doing was providing access to Joe Biden, the vice-president of the US and responsible for US relations with Ukraine, after GB froze assets and funds of Burisma in London. Something Joe Biden fixed.Hombre wrote:I still stand by my comment. Hunter business in Ukraine had different purpose then Kushner one in China.
And now you are resizing Califormia: didn't know that it only included Santa Clara and Silicon Valley north of San Fransisco. Because that's where this is happening. Funny!Hombre wrote:CA increased homelessness became acute for two reasons:
a) Enormous increase in home values which priced out many low income people out of the market. Many lower wage people leave the state- replaced by high skilled engineers & S/W professional.
At Google, Facebook, twitter & others, the starting salary for s/w engineer right out of collage $190,000 along with full medical coverage. 3 gourmet meals, driven by luxury buses to & from home. The only thing not included is wipe their rear-end
b) being a rich & Liberal state, many poor states simply loaded their homeless onto buses and shipped them to CA on a one-way ticket.
