BREAKING: Intel Community Secretly Changed the Whistle-Blower Rules to Allow the Trump-Ukraine Complaint Just Days Before It Was Filed

Westlake Legal Group a8636803-f428-4e76-ab5b-b516cf1d9e5e-620x317 BREAKING: Intel Community Secretly Changed the Whistle-Blower Rules to Allow the Trump-Ukraine Complaint Just Days Before It Was Filed whistle-blower Ukraine Rules Changed Politics Intel Community Front Page Stories Front Page Form Revised Featured Story donald trump democrats Deep State Days Before coup corruption August

This is a major, major development in the Trump-Ukraine saga and it points exactly at what a lot of people suspected.

The Federalist’s Sean Davis has discovered that the intel community secretly changed the rules governing whistle-blowers, including amending the required form, in order to allow 2nd hand information to suffice. This happened just days before the Trump-Ukraine whistle-blower filed his complaint.

The brand new version of the whistleblower complaint form, which was not made public until after the transcript of Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and the complaint addressed to Congress were made public, eliminates the first-hand knowledge requirement and allows employees to file whistleblower complaints even if they have zero direct knowledge of underlying evidence and only “heard about [wrongdoing] from others.”

The internal properties of the newly revised “Disclosure of Urgent Concern” form, which the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) requires to be submitted under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA), show that the document was uploaded on September 24, 2019, at 4:25 p.m., just days before the anti-Trump complaint was declassified and released to the public. The markings on the document state that it was revised in August 2019, but no specific date of revision is disclosed…

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 think that wrongdoing took place, but can provide nothing more than second-hand or unsubstantiated assertions, [the Intelligence Community Inspector General] will not be able to process the complaint or information for submission as an ICWPA,” the form concluded.

Many have been baffled by the ability of the whistle-blower to file a complaint and force the release of a classified transcript based on nothing but 2nd and 3rd hand, illegal leaks. Now we know how that was possible. The Intel Community changed the rules at the same time the complaint was being written.

Here’s the biggest red flag with that. That complaint was so well written, so thorough, that there’s noway it wasn’t done over the course of weeks with involvement of others. Yet, it was submitted just days after this rule change was finalized and the news forms revised. That points directly at the whistle-blower and his team not only being aware the rule change would happen, but that the rule change was made specifically for them.

Here’s another issue that’s going to be pressed in the coming days. Was the form even really revised in August? Because the actual form that claims an August revision was only actually released two days ago on September 25th. It looks like it could be back-fill to cover up the intel community originally breaking the rules by allowing the complaint.

This complaint is looking more and more like a coordinated hit. The way it was written, the timeline involved, the way Adam Schiff knew about it weeks before it was even filed, and now this rule change which made it even possible. It’s all too much to be coincidence.

Certainly, the mainstream media will ignore this as they always do. The real test will be whether certain conservatives who’ve been defending all this the past few days will now begin to question their presumptions.

For all the gnashing of teeth and sneering condemnations hurled at those who have used the term “deep state,” that’s what this is. This is un-elected, secret government officials trying to remove a President and being willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish that.

It’s out in the open now and it has to be reckoned with.

Nothing Remains of This Know-Nothing Democrat but Hair, Teeth, and Eyeballs After Thomas Homan Gets Done

Westlake Legal Group thomas-homan-620x317 Nothing Remains of This Know-Nothing Democrat but Hair, Teeth, and Eyeballs After Thomas Homan Gets Done Thomas Homan Politics Immigration and Customs Enforcement immigration and citizenship subcommittee immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats Congress Allow Media Exception

File – In this Dec. 5, 2017 file photo, then Acting Director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan takes a question from a reporter at a Department of Homeland Security news conference in Washington. A federal immigration official says about 800 people living in Northern California were able to avoid arrest because of a warning by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. Homan, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement chief, told “Fox and Friends” Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018, that what Schaaf did was “no better than a gang lookout yelling ‘police’ when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood.” (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik, File)

One of the unsung heroes in the fight over border security is former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan. The guy is not only an authority of immigration policy and the nuts-and-bolts of how all the components of the immigration system works, he has damned little patience for idiots or stooges which means he and House Democrats and their staffs do not have a great relationship.

He probably received the most attention for an encounter he had with the “Squad” leader and general twit, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. (Read my AOC Suffers Third Degree Burns Over 90% Of Her Butt After This Encounter With Former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan for details.)

Homan was back on the Hill yesterday at a hearing on detention policy before the House Immigration and Citizenship Subcommittee. Compared to the goat-rope about the so-called whisleblower complaint, this was an undercard match, but it provided a great deal of amusement on its own.

This was the view from the left

This is how Americans viewed the carnage

Here is Townhall colleague Leah Barkoukis

During a House Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship hearing on “The Expansion and Troubling Use of ICE Detention,” Homan and [Washington Democrat Pramila] Jayapal, the vice chairwoman, got into a shouting match, which started after she brought up reallocating funds to go towards more detention beds.

“I’d like to remind you, under the Obama administration, we did that most of the years he was president. We moved money around DHS — it’s called reprogramming. We did that under the Obama administration, and I don’t remember any hearings on that,” Homan said, reminding her that during the border surge under Obama Congress was quick to give the money needed.

“I didn’t like it under the Obama administration either,” she replied.

At another point, Homan explained why there’s such a crisis at the border, placing the blame on Democrats in Congress.

“Look, you want to know why there’s 50,000 people in detention? You want to know why there are a million illegal entries into the United States? You want to know why we have these issues? Because you have failed to secure the border,” Homan said. “You guys failed to work with this president to close the three loopholes we’ve asked for two years to close.”

Jayapal interrupted to cut him off because his time was up, but he continued nonetheless.

“I’ve asked you politely to let me go beyond my time, and you let other people go beyond their time, but not to Tom Homan!” he fired back.

Jayapal slammed her gavel down to quiet a frustrated Homan, who exclaimed, “This is a circus.”

The situation escalated from there, with Jayapal demanding that he “respect the chair’s authority.”

When he started to respond, she once again began banging her gavel.

“Mr. Homan!” she yelled.

“You work for me!” he shot back. “I’m a taxpayer. I’m a taxpayer, you work for me.”

One thing we’re seeing under Trump are more and more executive branch officers willing to call out members of Congress on their own actions and duplicity. Instead of meekly sitting there and being abused, there is a realization that they are members of a different branch of government and they owe no obeisance to quasi-literates who often can’t be bothered to even master the slightest bit of knowledge about the agencies and programs they are supposed to be overseeing. In the long run, this is good. Before a member of Congress grandstands at the expense of a literal expert in the field, they should be required to either have their stuff together or take a verbal beat down. It will make for better members of Congress and more informative hearings. And watching the left squirt blood out of their whatever in rage over seeing their precious ones disrespected is definitely a big plus.

Smarter Than the Real One: Mini-AOC Returns, Has Some Qs for “Classmate” Greta Thunberg’s Defenders (Video)

Screen grab via the @RealMiniAOC Twitter account.

Back in July, Kira Davis wrote about the left’s despicable doxxing of the family behind the cute “Mini AOC” Twitter account. The personal threats and invasion into their privacy forced the family to stop making the parody videos mocking the real AOC that made so many people laugh, but it was understandable. Safety first and all that.

But in the aftermath of liberals recently holding up 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg as some sort of unquestionable absolute moral authority on all things climate-related, Mini AOC decided she’d stayed in the shadows long enough, and returned.

Her latest video tackles a variety of topics. Climate change, of course, is one of them. So is transgenderism, which Mini AOC originally thought equated to Mother Nature transitioning into being Father Nature!

But she saved her strongest criticisms for the liberal defenders of her “former classmate” Thunberg, who Mini AOC says she hasn’t seen in person since “George Soros showed up and took Greta out of class one day.” Why defend her, Mini AOC asked liberals, when you forced me off the Internet? Why is it ok for teenager Thunberg to speak for adults, but I can’t do it because I’m just a kid?, she wondered.

In short: Why all the double standards?

Very cute. And I must say, the kid makes some good points.

Oh, and one more thing:

Mark Levin is on Fire: Calls on Adam Schiff to Release 90 Days of Texts, Phone Calls, Emails Because He is a Leaker

Westlake Legal Group mark-levin-620x349 Mark Levin is on Fire: Calls on Adam Schiff to Release 90 Days of Texts, Phone Calls, Emails Because He is a Leaker Sen. Murphy Sen. Menendez Sen. Leahy Sen.

Mark Levin, “The Great One,” appeared on “Hannity” last night to weigh in on the whistleblower’s complaint. He was on top of his game. Even President Trump was impressed. He posted Levin’s monologue to his twitter account.

After listening to Levin’s defense of Trump and his attacks on Schiff and all of the rest of them, I think Trump should hire him as his attorney. Levin is smart as a whip, articulate and he’s aggressive.

Levin finds the complaint to be “1000 times worse than the transcript of the phone call” between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. We all noticed a Grand Canyon size disconnect between the two documents.

Levin points out that a Ukrainian policy guy from the CIA doesn’t write like this. It reads like “a legal brief which has been vetted by lawyers.” And he wants to know who wrote it. Who was the whistleblower working with? Adam Schiff, Democratic staffers?

The whistleblower’s attorney said it’s important to retain his client’s anonymity. That request infuriates Levin. “Too bad pal. Too late. You want to impeach the President.”

And he noted something that a lot of us have wondered about. Why aren’t the Republican leaders in the Senate doing more to defend Trump? Why aren’t they sending out subpoenas? Calling for hearings, holding press conferences.

I would have expected a more spirited defense in the House as well. Rep. Devin Nunes (CA) is and has always been a champion. So have Jim Jordan (OH), Matt Gaetz (FL), Doug Collins (GA), Steve Scalise (LA) and several others. But many of them have been a disappointment. Kevin McCarthy spoke to the press on Tuesday and I wondered if he had a pulse.

Anyway, Levin is one of my all time favorites.

Read the transcript or watch the video below.

You know, after I watched this hearing, it’s like waterboarding, by the way. When it comes to Trump, Democrats and the media are like drug addicts looking for their next fix…Their eyes are popping out of their head. The sweetbreads are coming down their face.

They’re really freaking out… I can tell you that a CIA agent can’t write something like this, this is a legal brief,” said Levin.

First of all, as a practicing lawyer, I went through this. And I can tell you that a CIA agent, who is a policy guy for Ukraine can’t write something like this. This is a legal brief. This was vetted through lawyers. I want to know who wrote this. I want to know who this man spoke to…

In the New York Times today which, of course, runs cover for the Democrats and goes after the President of the United States, they say today that this man’s lawyer, who by the way, worked for Schumer and Clinton, doesn’t want the identity of this man known.

Too bad pal. Too late. You want to impeach our President using this BS. We want to know all about your guy. And I love today’s hearing where they wrap this guy in the whistleblower statute…

He knew nothing, he heard that certain people at the White House were upset…Isn’t it funny that not a single person with first-hand knowledge filed a whistleblower complaint?

This guy files one. This guy’s represented by Democrats. I want to know if Adam Schiff, the Democrat staffers or any of the Democrats were involved in orchestrating this. This leak and coupe campaign. Did it in Russia, did it with Kavanaugh, it’s the same damn thing.

This is a rogue CIA agent. People might say, but it’s the CIA. Look what they did to the FBI. Look at this guy Brennan, a complete reprobate.

You know, when the CIA overthrew the Iranian government years ago, the liberal Democrats were upset. When they overthrew Allende in Chile, a socialist marxist, the Democrats were upset. When they tried to overthrow Castro, the Democrats were upset…But when they try to overthrow our President, they’re whistleblowers. They’re heroes. They’re courageous. Mr. Schiff, why don’t release 90 days of your phone calls? 90 days of your texts. 90 days of your emails. Cause I know something pal. You’re a leaker. You’re devious. Same with your staff.

Nancy Pelosi went to the microphone, like a dictator, and announced ‘We’re going to begin an official, formal impeachment inquiry…Why would she do that before she got the transcript? Why, because she had this or she knew about it. (Levin holds up the whistleblower’s complaint.) From the little CIA operative.

This document is a thousand times worse than the actual transcript which isn’t even cited in this document (the whistleblower’s complaint).

Now, they’re trying to rewrite this document to try and get it to work with this document (the transcript of the call). The President of the United States phone call has nothing wrong with it. It’s a long conversation. I notice in the media, they’re kind of moving sentences around, trying to attach things. Why don’t you read the whole thing. But you won’t do that. Why? Well I have a question. Why shouldn’t the President of the United States in a conversation with the President of Ukraine say ‘Hey look. Would you take a look at this? We’ve had news reports, books’ about Hunter Biden, Joe Biden obstructing just in the Ukraine, blackmailing the government.’

The President is supposed to sit there and act stupid? No, he says among a thousand other things. You might want to look into this.

‘Wow, that’s an impeachable offense.’

You now have four U.S. senators who did far worse than that. Three of them, Menendez, Leahy, and Durbin who insisted that the Ukrainian government, insisted, investigate our President. You had another one, Murphy, from Connecticut, who insisted that the Ukrainian government not investigate Biden. How come they’re not facing ethics complaints? How come they’re not facing expulsion acts in the United States Senate?

And finally, where the hell are the Republican chairman in the Senate? Why aren’t they issuing subpoenas? Why don’t they pretend they’re Elijah Cummings or Jerry Nadler? Or Schiff for that matter? I know it’s an ugly thought, but issue 100 subpoenas. Go after their bank accounts, go after their friends, go after their relatives. Go after their accountants. Go after their records. And if they don’t go for it, hold em in contempt.

We’ve had news reports, books’ about Hunter Biden, Joe Biden obstructing just in the Ukraine, blackmailing the government.’

The President is supposed to sit there and act stupid? No, he says among a thousand other things. You might want to look into this.

‘Wow, that’s an impeachable offense.’

You now have four U.S. senators who did far worse than that. Three of them, Menendez, Leahy, and Durbin who insisted that the Ukrainian government, insisted, investigate our President. You had another one, Murphy, from Connecticut, who insisted that the Ukrainian government not investigate Biden. How come they’re not facing ethics complaints? How come they’re not facing expulsion acts in the United States Senate?

And finally, where the hell are the Republican chairman in the Senate? Why aren’t they issuing subpoenas? Why don’t they pretend they’re Elijah Cummings or Jerry Nadler? Or Schiff for that matter? I know it’s an ugly thought, but issue 100 subpoenas. Go after their bank accounts, go after their friends, go after their relatives. Go after their accountants. Go after their records. And if they don’t go for it, hold em in contempt.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Losing: Beto Tells Pro-2A Advocates it’s ‘Wrong’ to be Carrying Their Weapons

Are ya ready for some goofiness?

I gotcha covered.

On Wednesday at a Kent State University campaign rally, single-digit would-be hunting rifle thief Beto O’Rourke let people know it’s wrong to carry guns. At least, to any of his events, I guess.

The guy’s goin’ out with a blaze of glory — I’ll give him that.

It’s also, however, a blaze of ignorance, as he’s continued to speak about guns while making clear he’s never, at any point, said to himself, “Hey, what are guns? Maybe I should take just an hour or two to find out some information, any information. And then talk.”

Beto’s previously said he’ll be stealing your AR-15, but you can keep your hunting rifle.

Meanwhile, the AR-15 is America’s best-selling hunting rifle.

The other day, while eating a gigantic cheeseburger followed by a huge chocolate peanut butter malt, I was speaking to a friend who’s a handgun owner. I mentioned Beto’s vow to confiscate AR-15’s.

My friend:

“Well, those are like machine guns.”

That’s what she thought, from what she’d heard on the news.

We’ve got a problem here.

And O’Rourke ain’t helpin’.

Here’s what he had to say:

“It is not enough to stop selling AR-15s and AK-47s when there are more than 10 million of those potential instruments of terror.”

All guns are potential instruments of terror. AR-15’s just look spooky.

“We must mandate that every single one of them be bought back — back home, off the streets, out of our lives. No longer a threat to every to every single one of us.”

That won’t make any great difference, given that the vast majority gun deaths are due to handgun use. And AR-15’s are not the only rifles, goob. You don’t think a murderer’ll just grab the other rifle or pistol on the shelf?

Nevertheless, to Beto, so long as there exists a long gun with a scary shape, everyone’s walking around with a bullseye on ’em. But it sounds as if, if voters choose for him to steal those things from their homes, magically, the bullseyes’ll all just disappear, Jack!

“None of us should face this terror. No one in El Paso, Texas should have to tell me, as they do all the time, that they’re walking around with a target on their back.”

I have a suggestion: How about talk about things that will actually do something, rather than goofiness that makes no sense and no large difference?

Some folks came to the Beto bash in protest — and they brought their firearms:

Beto told ’em it’s wrong:

“And nobody should show up with one of these weapons that seek to intimidate us in our own democracy. That’s wrong. That’s wrong.”

What if it was a shotgun? Would that be better? A .30-06 bolt-action rifle? Preferable? No longer wrong?

The problem with politics, it seems to me, is that the majority of the CO2 appears to be comprised of absolutely meaningless words. It’s posturing, grandstanding, fluff, and — if given the benefit of the doubt — ignorance.

But so long as Beto sticks to his…guns…and continues to hammer one single kind of firearm which doesn’t make a dent in the larger scope of violent crime in America, he’ll cement himself as one more electoral fart in the wind. How about the Green New Deal fix that?

“Yesterday, people brought assault weapons to our rally at Kent State—where 4 students were shot dead in 1970.”

No, they didn’t. As for the AR-15, they brought hunting rifles.

And your rhetoric stinks.

Boom: Steve Scalise, Brit Hume Drop Kick Adam Schiff’s “Parody” Account of Trump’s Ukraine Call

As Bonchie wrote yesterday, the so-called “parody” stunt Rep. Adam Schiff (D-MA) pulled Thursday at the whistleblower hearing on the Trump/Zelensky call was one of the most despicable things to ever be done by a Congressman at one.

Instead of reading straight from the call transcript itself, Schiff just made stuff up, calling it the “essence” of what President Trump said during the July conversation. Here’s a transcribed refresher on his acting performance for those who missed it:

We’ve been very good to your country. Very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what, I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you, though, and I’m going to say this only seven times so you better listen good.

I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it. On this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, and not just any people. I’m going to put you in touch with Attorney General of the United States, my attorney general Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him and I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy. You’re going to love him, trust me.

You know what I’m asking, and so I’m only going to say this a few more times in a few more ways. And by the way, don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I’ve asked.

Here’s the video of Schiff’s theatrical stunt:

Schiff, who is the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, was called out for his disgusting stunt shortly thereafter. He ended up admitting what he said was “in part, a parody” (though there was no “in part” about it):

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and veteran Fox News journalist Brit Hume both torched Schiff in response, noting the reason why he had to fabricate the conversation was because the actual conversation didn’t prove Trump did anything impeachable:

Sadly, Schiff wasn’t the only Congressman Thursday who resorted to inventing things that were never said:

Shameful.

Judge Demands AOC Testify In Court Over Her Twitter Habits

Westlake Legal Group SquadAOCOmarTlaibPressley-620x317 Judge Demands AOC Testify In Court Over Her Twitter Habits twitter Politics New Rules lawsuit judge Hypocrisy Hikind Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats consistency Blocking

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., speaks as, from left, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., listen during a news conference at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, July 15, 2019. President Donald Trump on Monday intensified his incendiary comments about the four Democratic congresswomen of color, urging them to get out if they don’t like things going on in America. They fired back at what they called his “xenophobic bigoted remarks” and said it was time for impeachment. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

This is one of the sillier stories of the day, but new rules and all that.

If you recall, Donald Trump was successfully sued by liberals with nothing better to do because he blocked people on Twitter. Eventually a judge decided you now have a constitutional right to not have to log out to view tweets if someone blocks you.

Not all heroes wear capes I guess.

Because the only way to fight back against this insanity is to make Democrats play by their own rules, a lawsuit was filed against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for also blocking people on Twitter.

I’m not going to take the time to dig up my old Twitter arguments on the matter, but the most common rebuttal I got was that AOC can block people because she only represents her district. So it’s (D)ifferent, because it always is, right? That seemed too convenient by half, as she’s still a government figure who makes national policy. Now, a judge apparently agrees and she’s being made to testify.

An aide to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday said the freshman congresswoman blocks people on Twitter if their input isn’t “constructive” — but a federal judge demanded that she come and explain that herself…

…But Brooklyn federal Judge Frederic Block wants to hear directly from the prolific tweeter herself.

“I think she has to testify,” the judge said. “Her point is that this was an A-OK thing to do … she has to explain.”

Hikind said he was blocked by Ocasio-Cortez after he tweeted at her about her controversial comments in June comparing migrant centers at the border to concentration camps.

Look, I think this is ridiculous. Anyone should be able to block who they want on Twitter. But AOC was one of the people who gloated when Trump lost the lawsuit filed against him over blocking people on Twitter, so she better be willing to play by her own rules.

The real issue here is the stupidity of our justice system in the age of Trump. Judges continually torture the law and invent reasons to rule against the President simply for partisan gain. It’s how you can a judge in California have the same ruling overturned twice, finally having to be slapped down by the Supreme Court. There’s no care for normalcy or deference among many Democrat appointed judges anymore. It’s orange man bad all the time.

I’d love to return to a time of sanity on legal matters like this but that doesn’t appear possible right now. In the meantime, the best way to cut back on the nonsense is to hold Democrats to the standards they set.
