It’s now more than a month since we first learned of the existence of a whistleblower who had second-hand information (much of it incorrect) which is being used as the basis of impeaching the president of the United States.
We’ve learned a lot about Ukraine since then, and even more about the Bidens and their corruption. We’ve seen the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine, which only in small measure comported with the lurid claims of the CIA whistleblower.
But what we haven’t seen is the whistleblower. Why?
President Trump asked that question yesterday at a White House press conference.
“Do we have to protect somebody that gave a totally false account of my conversation?” Trump asked. “I don’t know. You tell me.”
He was asking a reporter, which is a pointless exercise since reporters these days have license to make up facts to fit their narrative. As an example, here’s what USA Today reported in response to Trump’s query:
“House Democrats conducting the impeachment inquiry say federal laws are designed to protect the identities of whistleblowers.”
They could have — but of course didn’t — note that the House Democrats made that claim “without evidence.” But of course the Resistance Media reserves that phrase only to be applied to Donald Trump’s own statements about Democratic corruption.
But USA Today not only lied about the Whistleblower Protection Act, they buttressed their fake argument by emphasizing the phrase “protect the identities of whistleblowers” and linking it to a second story where presumably we would read about how the law protects whistleblowers’ identities.
Hah! Not so! The link just referred back to an October 2 story by Jeanine Santucci that described in part President Trump’s desire to confront his accuser (as demanded by centuries of common law and the Constitution). The story did not contain one word of explanation for why the whistleblower’s identity is secret, nor any evidence that “federal laws are designed to protect the identities of whistleblowers.”
That’s because it’s a lie.
The Whistleblower Protection Act protects federal employees from retaliation or threats of retaliation by their employers. It does not provide anonymity, and it does not preclude the consequence of the whistleblower being subject to scrutiny by the press or public.
So why don’t you know who the whistleblower is? Why can Reps. Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi get away with running their impeachment investigation behind closed doors? Why is exculpatory evidence being withheld from the public? Why are the connections between the whistleblower and Schiff — not to mention Biden — being talked about only in online blogs and not the front pages of the New York Times and Washington Post?
The answers, of course, are obvious, and they all point in the same direction — the fix is in. Just as the Democrats with the help of the Deep State intelligence agencies manufactured evidence of Trump “colluding” with Russia, so too the Democrats with the help of the Deep State whistleblower have manufactured an impeachment narrative that only makes sense in the darkness where democracy goes to die.
You don’t know who the whistleblower is because once you know him, and once you can cross-examine him, it will become apparent that the entire Ukrainian Impeachment Hoax is a Mission Impossible style diversion intended to discredit the victim (Trump) just before the victim goes public with the evidence of being wronged (i.e., the Horowitz report and the Durham investigation) by the U.S. spy agencies. If Trump is impeached, then his claims of being set up by the Deep State can be dismissed as the desperate delusional inventions of a man grasping at straws to save his own skin.
Sadly, the American public seems incapable of understanding that Trump is the last man standing against the illegal seizure of power by a small band of politicians and bureaucrats. Trump isn’t trying to save his own skin, but rather the republic itself. Ironically, it is not oligarchs in Russia or the Ukraine who are trying to subvert our elections — it is the oligarchs in Washington, DC, the politicians who have amassed huge wealth and the bureaucrats who have amassed huge power.
