FACT CHECK/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WHISTLEBLOWER: “President Donald Trump did not receive the distinction of being named Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year,’ but his claims about the anonymous whistleblower did score ‘Lie of the Year’ from fact-checking website PolitiFact. Trump has repeatedly said the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint sparked the impeachment inquiry was ‘almost completely wrong’ about his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a claim that PolitiFact rated the most significant falsehood of 2019. The president is accused of using the power of his office to pressure Zelensky to open investigations into domestic political rivals, and leveraging nearly $400 million in military aid to do so. The House of Representatives is expected to vote on two articles of impeachment—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress—that were passed along partisan lines by the Judiciary Committee.”

TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/UKRAINE/WHISTLEBLOWER: “President Trump had already been briefed on a whistle-blower’s complaint about his dealings with Ukraine when he unfroze military aid for the country in September, according to two people familiar with the matter. Lawyers from the White House counsel’s office told Mr. Trump in late August about the complaint, explaining that they were trying to determine whether they were legally required to give it to Congress, the people said. The revelation could shed light on Mr. Trump’s thinking at two critical points under scrutiny by impeachment investigators: his decision in early September to release $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine and his denial to a key ambassador around the same time that there was a ‘quid pro quo’ with Kyiv. Mr. Trump used the phrase before it had entered the public lexicon in the Ukraine affair. Mr. Trump faced bipartisan pressure from Congress when he released the aid.”

INTELLIGENCE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/WHISTLEBLOWER: “President Trump has discussed dismissing the intelligence community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, because Mr. Atkinson reported a whistle-blower’s complaint about Mr. Trump’s interactions with Ukraine to Congress after concluding it was credible, according to four people familiar with the discussions. Mr. Trump first expressed his dismay about Mr. Atkinson around the time the whistle-blower’s complaint became public in September. In recent weeks, he has continued to raise with aides the possibility of firing him, one of the people said. The president has said he does not understand why Mr. Atkinson shared the complaint, which outlined how Mr. Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate Mr. Trump’s political rivals at the same time he was withholding military aid from the country.”
