I got shut down most of the day by an internet outage in Northwest Montana, but there was one story I wanted to make sure all my readers know about.
Sean Davis of the Federalist wrote a stunning expose yesterday of the fact that the Intelligence Community conveniently changed the rules for whistleblowers after the fact to accommodate the Deep State Ukrainian Hearsay Fake News report by a Trump-hating CIA agent.
Yeah, you heard that right.
According to evidence compiled by Davis, up until August it was mandatory that a whistleblower have first-hand knowledge of wrongdoing. That would have eliminated the report filed by the CIA agent who admitted having no first hand knowledge, but patched together an accusation against the president based on hearsay, media reports and fiction. As Davis note:
The complaint alleges that President Donald Trump broke the law during a phone call with the Ukrainian president. In his complaint, which was dated August 12, 2019, the complainant acknowledged he was “not a direct witness” to the wrongdoing he claims Trump committed.
In a remarkable coincidence (or more likely evidence of a Deep State Coup against Trump) the form used under the the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act was changed conveniently just in time for the rogue CIA agent to slime Trump. Previously, the whistleblower would have been ineligible to proceed, as Davis explains:
A previous version of the whistleblower complaint document, which the ICIG and DNI until recently provided to potential whistleblowers, declared that any complaint must contain only first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoing and that complaints that provide only hearsay, rumor, or gossip would be rejected.
“The [Intelligence Community Inspector General] cannot transmit information via the ICPWA based on an employee’s second-hand knowledge of wrongdoing,” the previous form stated under the bolded heading “FIRST-HAND INFORMATION REQUIRED.” “This includes information received from another person, such as when an employee informs you that he/she witnessed some type of wrongdoing.”
If you believe that the change was just an accident of timing, you probably also believe that Democrats want to make America a better place. Be gone!
If you enjoy reading these daily essays, I hope you will consider purchasing one of the books of the “Why We Needed Trump” trilogy. Part 1 is subtitled “Bush’s Global Failure: Half Right.” Part 2 is “Obama’s Fundamental Transformation: Far Left.” Part 3 is “Trump’s American Vision: Just Right.” My new book is “The Media Matrix: What if everything you know is fake?” They are available at Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions.

The Demorats are among the most shameless people I have ever known. They are on the Stalin track and It is a sadness for our citizenry that we have to deal with such nonsense from the Democrats. They are shameless Charlatans of the first order. The people have become their enemy as that always happens when Progressives begin to morph into Socialists and turn against the people for their own selfish power grabs. Read Darkness at Noon or other histories of the 1930’s Russia’s Terror Trials where they began trials and murder at will their own people with false accusations. The Demorats are beginning to mirror that MO. We the people have become the Democrats worse enemy! RLS
The article about the whistleblower form being changed to include second hand “information” is as timely today as it was last year in September 2019. The change was made, from what I remember, at the direction or instruction of Adam Schiff. I wondered at the time why the outrage to reject the new gossip form by some of the lawmakers wasn’t echoed by any conservative judges. This new form should have been held unconstitutional, or something, and should have been rejected.
Remember? Politically active judges randomly rejected anything President Trump submitted. Doesn’t the conservative side have any judges like that? The liberal activist judges, who were not elected by 65 million voters, found that they could stop a presidential executive order. Often. Surely there were judges who could have objected to changing a form which would make gossip and hearsay strong enough to bring down ANYONE in the government?? Where were those judges?
My real surprise was hearing that the whistleblower form was changed, then what the change was, and then hearing that Grassley and others moved heaven and earth to keep the name of the gossip monger secret. In my world, the accused is allowed to face the accuser. Eric Ciaramella acted out of dislike for a member of a political party he wanted ousted. This could happen to Adam Schiff and Eric swallwell with the right incentive for the accuser. I have not seen enough outrage and anger for the methods leading up to this impeachment ploy. Lindsey is still a swamp creature, Devon’s voice is always shouted over, nobody has the real clout, apparently, to get this document changed back to make it first hand info and not gossip. Maybe John Ratcliff, “show me the impeachable offence.” But when?
