[Ed. – This headline is provided not because you will agree with what it implies, but as a sample of the kind of prejudicial copy the entire mainstream media complex is turning out now.  There’s no pretense of journalistic neutrality or a “just the facts” attitude.  The whole thing is spin, starting with the premise — based on no facts in evidence — that there is anything to know about the July phone call that isn’t apparent from the transcript.]

There were dozens of ears listening to President Donald Trump’s 30-minute phone call with the leader of Ukraine that is at the center of a House impeachment inquiry , and as many eyes that saw what he said.

White House staffers, working in the secure, soundproof Situation Room in the West Wing basement, listened in and chronicled the conversation . National Security Council personnel edited a memo written about the call. White House lawyers, according to a government whistleblower , directed that the memo be uploaded into a highly restricted classified computer network. And there were the staffers whose keystrokes on a computer made that happen.

They represent a universe of people, little known outside their vital circle of national security officials, who can either support or disavow the whistleblower’s account. Their roles could well become more public as the impeachment investigation unfolds and Congress seeks additional witnesses.
