It's even worse than it appears.
Poll: Will Trump resign?#
What I love about the whistleblower is that it says that the US govt is still in there, it hasn't been dominated yet by the Nazis. Now that one whistleblower has emerged, hopefully there will be many more. A publication dedicated just to whistleblower coverage might be good.#
I assume Trump is deep in debt and scrambling to make loan payments every month, and the people he owes money to aren't the kind who understand.#
If I could talk to Trump and he was really listening I'd day this. Trump you idiot, we all knew what you were doing, but we didn't have solid proof, like a tape or a transcript. You fucking moron, not only did you create the transcript, you released it to the public. #
I was pissed that Schiff went ahead with the hearing, but then I wonder if his real audience is the dozen or so would-be whistleblowers who are dealing with a government that insists everything is privileged. He's saying to them, that's what they say about everything, you have to resist that. If necessary come to me, directly and we'll help. #
Here's what's weird. The Trump/Barr team has been obstructing everything. It's all been privileged. Tax returns. McGahn testimony, etc. Today they gave up. They could have said the whistleblower report was privileged. Would have been consistent. They didn't. #
So where can a citizen get a look at this whistleblower report that is not behind a paywall?#
I wish there was a text version of the report so I could use a dark color and amp up the size. There should be a whistleblower's CSS file I can edit. Make this stuff easy on the eyes. #
I don't see why the Dems went ahead with the public hearing today, given that the whistleblower report came out before the hearing. The hearing only made sense if the report was being withheld. We're not impeaching the acting DNI. This hearing only made sense of they were stonewalling. They're doing to the whistleblower what Barr did to the Muller Report. They need a showrunner, someone with an outsider's perspective. Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi are lost in the weeds. (Though unlike some, I thought Schiff's intro was brilliant.)#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
