Whistleblower Has Ties To 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate, Report

The whistleblower who reported on President Donald Trump’s call with the Ukrainian president had a previous tie to a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate.

The intelligence community Inspector General Michael Atkinson gave that information to Congressional representatives in a closed door meeting last week.

“The IG said [the whistleblower] worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates,” a source said.

“The IG said the whistleblower had a professional relationship with one of the 2020 candidates,” yet another source said.

“What [Atkinson] said was that the whistleblower self-disclosed that he was a registered Democrat and that he had a prior working relationship with a current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate,” a third source said.

“The IC inspector general told lawmakers that the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower had a working relationship with one of the current 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, according to three sources with knowledge of the testimony, Washington Examiner reporter Byron York said.

The potential bias of the whistleblower was an issue as to why it was not initially given to Congress, CNN had reported.

Is this a witch hunt?

“Further although the ICIG’s preliminary reviewed identified some indicia of bias of an arguable political bias on the part of the complainant in favor of a rival political candidate, such evidence did not change my determination that the complaint relating to the urgent concern ‘appears credible’ particularly given the other information the ICIG obtained during its preliminary review,” Atkinson said.

“The Whistleblower’s facts have been so incorrect about my “no pressure” conversation with the Ukrainian President, and now the conflict of interest and involvement with a Democrat Candidate, that he or she should be exposed and questioned properly. This is no Whistleblower,” President Trump said.

“The Whistleblower’s lawyer is a big Democrat. The Whistleblower has ties to one of my DEMOCRAT OPPONENTS. Why does the ICIG allow this scam to continue?” he said in a series of tweets addressing it.
