We are learning more and more about the alleged whistleblower mand we will soon find out more. He or she has retained a lawyer that has worked for Hillary and Chuck Schumer. Who is footing the bill for this? If we had the answer to that, I’m sure it would blow the Democrats out of the water. The IG has found that the alleged whistleblower has a bias towards one of the Democrats running for president. The complaint will be released tomorrow along with the transcript of Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian president. And remember, the alleged whistleblower has no access to the call or the transcripts, yet filed a complaint anyway.
Ed Henry of Fox News reported Tuesday evening on Hannity that the Office of Intelligence Community Inspector General found that the so-called “whistleblower” who raised concerns about President Donald Trump’s discussions with foreign leaders had a “political bias” in favor of one of Trump’s rivals in the 2020 presidential election.
The inspector general’s report has, thus far, been withheld by the administration.
Democrats allege that the Trump administration is violating the law in keeping the report from Congress, which was the chief reason cited Tuesday by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for changing her mind and supporting an impeachment inquiry.
It is not clear why the administration had withheld the report, though the White House announced Tuesday that it will release the report Wednesday, along with the transcript of Trump’s conversation with the new president of Ukraine.
Henry, citing a “senior official” with first-hand knowledge of the inspector general’s report, said that the anonymous “whistleblower” — who did not hear Trump’s conversation directly — was biased in favor of one of Trump’s 2020 opponents, though the official did not say which one.
Henry also said the official had told him that there would be no “smoking gun” in the transcript of Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — even though there would be “at least a few words” in it that would cause unspecified problems for the White House.
