‘Whistleblower’ Tied to 2020 Democrat

It is now more clear than ever that this whistleblower complaint was a politically motivated hit piece.

When Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) Michael Atkinson first addressed the “whistleblower” complaint back in August, he noted that the individual showed “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate.” After the complaint came to light, it was learned that the whistleblower was a registered Democrat, which many may have assumed was the reason behind Atkinson statement suggesting that the whistleblower had “arguable political bias.”

However, now it has come to light that the whistleblower’s political bias runs much deeper than merely being a registered Democrat. During his closed-door testimony last Friday, Atkinson noted that the whistleblower had significant ties to a 2020 Democrat candidate. The Washington Examiner reports that three individuals with knowledge of Atkinson’s testimony stated that he said the whistleblower had “a professional relationship” with a current 2020 Democrat candidate, but Atkinson did not disclose who the candidate was.

So, here’s what we know about this whole “whistleblower” charade so far. The original form the whistleblower submitted had previously only accepted first-hand information to meet the “urgent concern” criteria in order to trigger a congressional alert, but it was mysteriously altered to eliminate the first-hand knowledge criteria. We have no answer as to whom made this change and when. Next, we learned that the whistleblower had contact with Rep. Adam Schiff’s intel committee intermediaries weeks before submitting the complaint. Schiff lied repeatedly when claiming he had no prior knowledge of the complaint.

Now we find out that, based on the ICIG’s testimony, the whistleblower had a “professional relationship” with a 2020 Democrat candidate. Political observer David Harsanyi posits: “What if the whistleblower had once worked for Biden? That would be wild.”

Bottom line, the collusion between Schiff and his deep-state operatives to set up President Trump for impeachment is the real scandal.
