The plot grows thicker as more details continue to emerge from the “whistleblower” witch hunt against President Trump that erupted from a story published by the Washington Post last Wednesday.
Yes, the Fake News Factory went into full defamation mode, saying that “Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community.”
POLL: Should Pelosi Be REMOVED From Office?
What they didn’t intend was that it would be discovered that the alleged whistleblower “did not have direct knowledge of the communication in question,” nor did Trump actually “extort” the Ukrainian president in any way.
But now another interesting tidbit has emerged that will cost the media dearly.
Looks the person representing the alleged whistleblower formerly worked for Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer.
Take a look at what the Federalist uncovered:
The anonymous person who filed a formal, uncorroborated complaint against President Donald Trump for allegedly asking a foreign leader to investigate corruption related to Joe Biden now has a legal team that includes a Democratic operative who worked for Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.).
Andrew Bakaj, now a managing partner at the Compass Rose Legal Group, interned for Schumer in the spring of 2001 and for Clinton in the fall of the same year, according to Bakaj’s LinkedIn page. More recently, Bakaj has worked as an official in the CIA and Pentagon and specializes in whistleblower and security clearances in his legal practice.
But that’s not all, friends! There’s so much more besides!
From the Washington Examiner:
The anonymous U.S. intelligence official accusing President Trump of improperly pressuring Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is represented by two lawyers who run a group that offers financial help tofired whistleblowers.
Whistleblower Aid was launched in September 2017 — eight months after Trump’s inauguration — with an advertising blitz that involved mobile billboards being driven close to the White House, Congress, outside the Pentagon, and around the headquarters of the CIA and National Security Agency.
The group’s pledge of support, in addition to free legal representation including rent and mortgage assistance, media coaching, and doctor’s bills and counseling, is controversial among lawyers. Critics say it violates attorney ethics.
Of course it violates ethics! This is ridiculous!
How do we even know if Andrew Bakaj didn’t seek out the alleged whistleblower?
How do we know that he wasn’t hand-selected in order to create yet another scandal to impeach Trump?
Note the outage from Rep. Mark Walker in his tweets below:
Let me get this straight: the whistleblower (leaker) had no firsthand knowledge of the call and was just spreading a rumor?
And now is being represented by an attorney who had to leave the CIA after a ‘whistleblower’ incident and has the names Schumer and Clinton on his resumé?
This seems about as reputable as the DNC-funded dossier or the latest Kavanaugh propaganda.”
It’s completely ridiculous that so much attention is being surrounded the story of the whistleblower when the real story whose whistle wants to be blown centers around Hunter Biden, who according to ABC News, was appointed to the board of directors of a Ukrainian natural gas company just after he was kicked out of the Navy Reserves for testing positive for cocaine use.
Not only was Hunter’s firm paid $1,000,000 per year, but it gets worse. According to NPR, Joe threatened to withhold aid from the Ukraine if they didn’t fire the prosecutor who was investigating Hunter’s company:
In March 2016, Biden made one of his many trips to Ukraine and told the country’s leaders that they had to get rid of the prosecutor if they wanted $1 billion in U.S. aid. Biden told the story last year at the Council on Foreign Relations:
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the [$1 billion]. I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a b****. He got fired,” Biden said.
Oh, but none of that matters to the machine that wants to get Trump at all costs.
Let’s just focus on the whistleblower who has no whistle to blow.
I guess they don’t call it Fake News for nothing.
