Sep 26, 2019

It’s September 26th. Today, we Skimm’d This: 

  • Today, the mysterious whistleblower complaint about a phone call between President Trump and the president of Ukraine was made public. The same day lawmakers questioned the country’s top intelligence official about why the complaint took so long to get to them.

  • Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is being given another chance to lead Israel. But TBD on whether it’ll work out for him.

  • The US Census Bureau released the latest numbers on income inequality. Spoiler: it’s not looking good.

theSkimm: The mysterious whistleblower complaint everyone’s talking finally public. So: we got lots of new details. And lawmakers in Congress had lots of questions – especially about why it took so long to see the complaint. Meanwhile, we could be one step closer to figuring out who will govern Israel after last week’s do-over election. Also on today’s show: income inequality is at a new high, and one Skimm’r who’s making her finances work.
