Surprise! Fake "Whistleblower" Is Not Merely a "Registered Democrat," As Jake Tapper Claimed.
The Fake "Whistleblower" Has Actually Worked For One of the Democrats Running for the Presidential Nomination.

Jake Tapper lied?

Jake Tapper simply relayed the silly spin from frequent liar Adam Schiff "without evidence," as he likes to say about Trump?

I shan't believe it. I simply shannot.

Byron York:

In an Aug. 26 letter, the intelligence community's inspector general, Michael Atkinson, wrote that the anonymous whistleblower who set off the Trump-Ukraine impeachment fight showed "some indicia of an arguable political bias ... in favor of a rival political candidate."

A few weeks later, news reports said the whistleblower's possible bias was that he is a registered Democrat. That was all. Incredulous commentary suggested that Republicans who were pushing the bias talking point were so blinded by their own partisanship that they saw simple registration with the Democratic Party as evidence of wrongdoing.

"Give me a break!" tweeted whistleblower lawyer Mark Zaid. "Bias? Seriously?"

Now, however, there is word of more evidence of possible bias on the whistleblower's part. Under questioning from Republicans during last Friday's impeachment inquiry interview with Atkinson, the inspector general revealed that the whistleblower's possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat. It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year's election.

"The IG said [the whistleblower] worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates," said one person with knowledge of what was said.

"The IG said the whistleblower had a professional relationship with one of the 2020 candidates," said another person with knowledge of what was 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," said a third person with knowledge of what was said.

If I can't trust Jake Tapper and his "conservative" Beta Orbiters who amplify and propagate his DNC talking points all day on Twitter, why, then who can I trust?

20 that they saw simple registration with the Democratic Party as evidence of wrongdoing.

It's getting to the point where this is almost reasonable, or at least a facsimile of reasonable. The actually reasonable stance is "mid-tier or higher government employee is evidence of wrongdoing."

But thankfully our betters understand that there can be no conflicts of interest, criminality or wrongdoing when one is working to ensure that the arc of history continues to bend toward progress(ivism).

He would most likely be a butt boy for Brennan. Which candidate would most likely be all smoochy with Brennan? It would be Biden. However, was he aware that this would push Biden's shit into the forefront or was he hoping that "get trump" would cover for Biden? Hard to know since logic isn't their strong suit.

A few weeks later, news reports said the whistleblower's possible bias was that he is a registered Democrat. That was all.

"Indicia" is a plural noun (which I had to look up to verify, but could be inferred from context), meaning more than one reason this person could be bias.

The Federal agencies should operate as little from central offices as possible, most functions can be done in field offices scattered around the country in towns and small cities.

190 OK, SWAG here.

Guy worked at the Whitehouse as a CIA Ukraine expert.

He has a professional relationship with a Democrat Presidential candidate.

They are DESPERATE to keep his identity secret.

Biden was Obama's point man on the Ukraine. He had intelligence people on HIS staff to help with that.

I'd say this guy was Biden's CIA flunky, for Ukraine.

Now we also know the US was doing all kinds of Hinky stuff in Ukraine. This guy would have been in the middle of it all.

Two Ukrainians have been convicted, by their own government, of interfering in the US 2016 election.

If my guess is correct, this guy knows where the bodies are buried, and this whistleblower complaint is an attempt to give them legal cover for what is coming down on them (so they can say its all retribution against them for the complaint, not for their illegal crap).

Posted by: Bandersnatch at October 08, 2019 04:19 PM (gd9RK)

Trump releasing the transcript blew the whole scam wide open - all they've got left is an attempt to salvage it with some kind of "obstruction" claim, hence all the requests for documents.

First "Whistleblower" - a loyal democrat functionary, who's only purpose was to work with Schiff and to attempt to shield the original source, due to his ties with Biden.
Second "Whistleblower" - the guy who actually heard the call, but knew it wouldn't work for him to complain since he had worked for Biden, so he recruited the other guy to front for him. He's the one they've been desperate to hide, but I think we're going to find out his name shortly. Too many people want to know, and there's no Witness Protection Program for this kind of thing.

the entire scam has already fallen apart, Schiff is already in coverup mode.

259 How can a federal employee (I've seen nothing to
indicate he's left government employment), especially one at the CIA,
have a "professional relationship" with a person running for political
office?
By the way, Sundance at Conservative Treehouse has proposed
Michael Barry, a CIA agent who was posted to the White House, as the
whistleblower.
(And Sundance was one of the first to unmask Stefan Halper as the guy who set up Papdopolous).

Even as a Federal employee you can still work for political campaigns. We had that problem when I worked at the sub base in CT. Very obvious senior base civilian employees were working for political campaigns and we constantly got complaints about it, but it's legal.


As long as they don't use their status as a Federal employee to help the campaign they can do whatever they want on their own time.

Understand how the rules are built to allow this to happen: The 2nd WB didn't say anything false at all; he said some other guy TOLD him this all happened, and he reported what the other guy TOLD him. So everything he said was true, as far as he knew it to be.

As to the 2nd WB (the actual source) well, in fact, they're CALLING him a 2nd WB, but he never filed any report at all, and he has never said anything under oath to my knowledge, except if he was interviewed by the IG. (And we don't know what he said there). So no laws broken, no false reports, even though the Info is completely false.

that's how the system is designed to "Work".

The way I understand this, Pelosi announced the impeachment investigation BEFORE the call transcript was released. Which was a major blunder. She and her cronies are normally smarter than that. The whole thing seems hastily cobbled together. The whole impeachment idea is a loser for Dems, they've known this for a long time.This lends credibility to the theories I keep hearing that A. The left wing of the Dem party really does have enough clout to brow beat the leadership into doing things that potentially hurt the party in the long run, and B. The party as a whole is becoming desperate. Their internal polling or whatever is telling them they have no chance agains Trump in 2020. Plus and maybe even more importantly, they are losing federal judge slots to conservatives at an alarming rate. And worse than that the SC will be lost to them very soon for a generation. They are losing all the avenues they have to power, since their power at the ballot box is fading as the party becomes more and more outwardly left wing. The future is bleak. This is a hail mary pass to try and win the game in the fourth quarter.

delusional that she actually believes what she's writing, or is just
hoping to flood the zone with propaganda nonsense, but she's begging
Trump to use his master negotiating powers now to resign and avoid

This is the problem with being a crook. If the roles had been reversed, they absolutely would not have released the transcript - because the transcript would have revealed what the whistle blower said it would.

The problem they're having (and it's the problem they've had since day 0) is that Trump - unlike them - isn't doing what they would do.

Shallop is a name used for several types of boats and small ships used for coastal navigation from the seventeenth century. Originally smaller boats based on the chalupa, the watercraft named this ranged from small boats a little larger than a banks dory to gunboats.

This raises the question, does the chalupa come with shallots?

Trump releasing the transcript blew the whole
scam wide open - all they've got left is an attempt to salvage it with
some kind of "obstruction" claim, hence all the requests for documents.




First "Whistleblower" - a loyal democrat functionary, who's only
purpose was to work with Schiff and to attempt to shield the original
source, due to his ties with Biden.

Second "Whistleblower" - the guy who actually heard the call, but
knew it wouldn't work for him to complain since he had worked for Biden,
so he recruited the other guy to front for him. He's the one they've
been desperate to hide, but I think we're going to find out his name
shortly. Too many people want to know, and there's no Witness
Protection Program for this kind of thing.



the entire scam has already fallen apart, Schiff is already in coverup mode.

I'm not sure yet. I think the "second whistle-blower" - who was almost certainly the source for the "first whistle-blower" was already set up for deployment before Trump took the wind out of their sails by releasing the transcript.

Their subsequent actions only make sense in a world where Trump did *not* release the transcript. He did, though, and screwed up the hit. I suspect that the "second whistle-blower with first-hand knowledge" was already set up and ready for release before Trump changed the playing field.

Read some of the comments above, where we go into it. The "2nd WB" is just the source for the first, remember how the 1st WB had no firsthand info, it was all hearsay that someone else told him? Well, the 2nd WB is the guy who told him. Now they realized that relying on hearsay was a serious flaw, so they're getting the original guy out, the one with "firsthand info".

And so now the question is, why did the 2nd WB go to such lengths to hide his identity, even laundering his complaint through a second party? Because apparently he has a longstanding professional and personal connection with Joe Biden, and when his name is revealed, it will be clear that HE was the one trying to use an investigation to take out a political opponent, not the other way round.

I think it is just a tad more complex than that, but not much. It's about timing. This scheme can't work because Pence could appoint a new Veep.

1. Impeach, try, convict and remove Trump and Pence *simultaneously*
2. Pelosi becomes president
3. Hillary re-enters government in some fashion to protect her.

388 209 I wonder why the Democrats are guarding this guy's identity so closely.

They must have scrubbed his social media by now.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison, with that Kubrick look towards the camera

I think their fear is because the instant the "whistleblowers" name is released, it's going to blow the entire scam sky high. He may not just be tied to Biden, he may be a DNC operative. Scrubbing his social media won't be enough, they can't scrub his resume.

I remain convinced it's a phantom. There never was a whistleblower or whatever. The complaint was manufactured by Schiff's staff out of whole cloth.
Posted by: Brother Cavil, not in the 'stan at October 08, 2019 04:25 PM (AM1GF)

The greatest trick the whistleblower ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

390 At this stage of the coup, Trump is supposed to be withholding information and refusing to cooperate, so they can run with the "the coverup is worse than the crime" and "its the coverup, stupid" phase.

But he blew that to pieces so they're still running out the plays but have no ball.

403 On a clip from MSNBC's AMJOY, a woman laid it out.
If
Pence resigns or more probably impeached first, and then a deal is made
with Trump to resign but not serve jail time if he doesn't appoint a
new VP first, then Nancy Pelosi becomes President.
I actually saw
someone say that. I had DVR'ed it (Ingraham show) and had to play it
back again to make sure I saw what I thought I saw.
The Left is into fucking dingbat territory now.
========
Even if you believe in the infinite universes theory, there is no universe in which Nancy Pelosi is electable to a national office. Out of infinite universes, it never happens. However, eventually, since she is undying, time is on her side and she eventually gains total control in roughly half of the universes. The other half, well, they don't turn out much better.

However, they must go through the FULL set of motions to justify a more classic type of coup, involving violence, &/or the military, which they fully intend to implement as well.

That just doesn't seem as crazy as it once did. Their absolute moral certainty predicts it.

Then the Deep State pushes this out to reporters who dutifully report it and bam, you've just "legitimized" your investigation and FISA warrant request.

release the transcript, because they would not have done that if the
roles had been reversed.

472 As others have pointed out, they are going to Impeach Trump for obstruction of justice.

They were going to give him a week to release the complaint--thinking he'd stall

They had it all lined up--look at the timeline and remove the transcript release:
1) House Democrats only meet, vote for "inquiry"
2) Scheiff holds hearing, reads fake transcript into the "news"
3) Phony Republicans in the Senate give more cover, voting to demand the complaint
4) now, release of the transcript or the complaint it even the identity of the WB is irrelevant--they've set the narrative of obstruction
5) "It's not the crime, it's the cover-up!" leads all news

All this in less than a week was the plan

It was all laid out perfectly--but Trump did the one thing they didn't know he would do (the unknown unknown); He released the transcript.

Now, if you're paying attention--how did Trump know that was the one thing he could do?
It's almost like he knew their plans.

They have all their leakers and plants--but they don't know who in their side is talking

He didn't need to know their plans. Even in a knowledge vacuum with regard to their plans, his move was obvious. He knew what was said on the call - he was there.

The obvious move, regardless of any prior knowledge or lack thereof, is to release the transcript. Given the perfidy of the enemy, the timing is also obvious: immediate.

I doubt this nth-dimensional chess. I suspect it was just the obvious rational move for someone who didn't do what he was accused of.

Yes, it's been very frustrating. Normally, my husband and I are on the same page on pretty much everything. At least things that are important enough to argue about if we weren't in agreement. So we have largely stopped talking about politics. He got the NT bug bad during the election and I swear it's like we are living in two different political universes. I read the transcript and when we were talking about it the other night, he insists he's read it, but it's like he read a completely different document or something. It is hugely frustrating. I was hoping when he brought the subject up that he saw through all the bullshit, but nope. It's still OrangeManBad.
