The Washington Examiner has reported the intelligence community inspector general found evidence that the whistleblower at the center of allegations against President Trump had “political bias” in favor of a “rival candidate” of Trump.
A senior administration official told Fox News late Tuesday night that the document would be released, as would the complaint against Trump from the whistleblower himself. The official did not say which “rival candidate” the watchdog found, toward whom the whistleblower was allegedly biased.
The depth of the Deep State is still being uncovered, and the latest swamp rat is the so called “whistle-blower” complaint filed against President Trump about a call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
It took less than a day to discover the whistle-blower was not privy to any part of the phone call, and was not assigned to the NSC policy staff nor a Situation Room Duty Officer whose job is to “memorialize the conversation.” Below is the footnote on the first page of the memorandum made by those officers who were on duty:
CAUTION: A Memorandum of a Telephone Conversation (TELCON) is not a verbatim transcript of a discussion. The text in this document records the notes and recollections of Situation Room Duty Officers and NSC policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place. A number of factors can affect the accuracy of the record, including poor telecommunications connections and variations in accent and/or interpretation. The word “inaudible” is used to indicate portions of a conversation that the note taker was unable to hear.
It says this document is not a verbatim transcript of a discussion. I wonder if the President’s calls and discussions and conversations are still recorded (remembering Nixon’s tapes).
At any rate you can read the entire document here, and no where is there any discussion of withholding aid from Ukraine by President Trump.
While there apparently was a delay in sending the aid to Ukraine, the money was sent this month. The Washington Post made the decision to link that delay with the phone call in July between Trump and Zelensky.
The democrats and media believe this is going to be their saving grace since the Mueller investigation flat lined, and no doubt believe people will remember that Ukraine “used to be part of Russia” and to them that’s a plus to forwarding yet another lie.
But as Joe Saunders of The Western Journal says “it’s almost a rule of political life that when hypocritical Democrats are accusing their political opponents of anything, they’re almost infallibly guilty of it first.” (emphasis added)
One of the key players in all of this, including the “impeachment investigation”, is Jerry Nadler, Chairman of the House Judicial Committee, who said “We are in the middle of impeachment. I am investigating. This is an inquiry.” None of which is legal. “House rules, which are determined via the Constitution, the rule of law says that the US House of Representatives has to vote on that, and that’s not happened” says Rep. Lance Gooden of Texas who has introduced a resolution to remove Nadler from his chair on the Judicial Committee.
Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas) introduced a resolution on Tuesday to remove House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) from his position and recognize the illegality of the impeachment proceedings Nadler has overseen.
“In recent days, Democrats have sanctimoniously declared their allegiance to the rule of law,” Gooden said in a press release. “I encourage them to follow those rules and hold Chairman Nadler accountable for breaking them.”
“By law, he may not launch impeachment proceedings until the full House votes for him to do so. This attempted coup against a duly elected, sitting president is unprecedented and must be stopped.”
Again, just as Special Counsel Mueller’s appointment was not Constitutional, neither is the impeachment proceeding called for by Nadler and Pelosi until voted on by the entire House of Representatives. Considering the majority of the House is Democrat, that may happen. Unfortunately like many citizens, there are some Republican Representatives who are buying into the hype and have said if the Ukraine call proves some kind of duplicity by President Trump, they will turn against him.
Here’s an interesting fact (like Saunders said, they accuse others of which they are guilty): A letter has surfaced from May of 2018 written by three Democratic Senators asking Ukraine for help in the Mueller investigation of Russian collusion:
The letter from Sens. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, Dick Durbin of Illinois and Patrick Leahy of Vermont was cited Wednesday in a column by Marc Thiessen in The Washington Post.
The letter was an effort to persuade Ukraine to supply information that Democrats wanted for the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016.
“It’s Trump Derangement Syndrome on steroids” said Fred Weinberg describing the Ukraine controversy in a hard-hitting op-ed in The Western Journal.
The closer we get to Election Day, the worse it will become.
