A second whistleblower emerges Sunday regarding the conduct of President Donald Trump, along with “multiple” other complaints possibly waiting to be revealed

According to the Los Angeles Times, a second whistleblower has emerged as of Sunday regarding the conduct of President Donald Trump. A lawyer for the first whistleblower, Mark Zaid, stated Sunday that his team now represented a second individual that had come forward with a complaint. A second lawyer from the original whistleblower’s team, Andrew Bakaj, also announced in a tweet Sunday that the team was representing “multiple” whistleblowers, “but provided no details on the number, the status of their complaints, or whether they were also part of the intelligence community.” According to ABC News, the latest whistleblower is reported to have direct knowledge of President Trump and his conduct regarding the nation of Ukraine.  ~

The presence of these complaints significantly escalates tensions in the fast-developing impeachment inquiry against the President. The whistleblower complaint filed anonymously last month brought attention to a phone call President Trump had with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July. The complaint, which became public late last month, speculated whether the President explicitly pressured Ukraine’s president into investigating Joe and Hunter Biden, and whether he used $391 million of military aid as leverage. Although the summarized transcript of the phone conversation released by the Trump administration appears to show that the President specifically spoke about the possibility of Ukraine investigating Joe Biden, it does not appear as though Trump discussed military aid in any form during the call. New reports by the Washington Post also bring into question the presence of a quid pro quo, reporting that an unnamed Ukrainian official claimed that Kiev “was not made aware that the U.S. suspended security funds until a month after President Trump’s call with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky.” According to NBC late last week, however, State Department text messages with Ukraine may provide evidence that US ambassadors pushed Ukraine officials to investigate certain offenses of corruption as a condition to visiting the White House, yet it is unclear whether the push was directly targeted at investigating Biden. ~
