There Are Now Multiple “Whistleblowers” Willing to Talk About the Ukraine Phone Call Because More Makes It Illegal or Something

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Finger-Point-620x325 There Are Now Multiple “Whistleblowers” Willing to Talk About the Ukraine Phone Call Because More Makes It Illegal or Something whistleblower complaint Politics Mark Zaid Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Brett Kavanaugh andrew bakaj Allow Media Exception adam schiff

If you were alive and sober during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing, you could already predict how the Ukraine story was going to play out. We start with one “whistleblower.” Early today, George Stephanopoulos broke the story that there was a second “whistleblower.”

Zaid tells ABC News’ Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that the second person — also described as an intelligence official — has first-hand knowledge of some of the allegations outlined in the original complaint and has been interviewed by the head of the intelligence community’s internal watchdog office, Michael Atkinson.

The existence of a second whistleblower — particularly one who can speak directly about events involving the president related to conversations involving Ukraine — could undercut Trump’s repeated insistence that the original complaint, released on Sept. 26, was “totally inaccurate.”

And now Zaid’s partner, Andrew Bakaj, says there are multiple “whistleblowers.”

BZZZZZT.

From what we’ve seen so far, from the transcript, from the testimony of a participant, Kurt Volker, and from the “whistleblower complaint” the basic allegation is that there is a law that says Democrats cannot be investigated for corruption and President Trump violated that law. People, like Mitt Romney, might not like it but demanding action of foreign nations is done all the time. The fact that it is Joe Biden’s coke addled whelp at the center of this is immaterial. Quite honestly, it really doesn’t matter how many “whistleblowers” climb forth out of Adam Schiff’s rectum, more people testifying on the same event does not make that event wrong or criminal.

All you can say is that President Trump was dead on the money on this one:

Trump Hits Back At Mitt Romney and Pearls Are Clutched

Mitt Romney, after announcing his endorsement of Romney during a news conference in Las Vegas.

If you get on GOP Twitter right now, you’ll witness a distinct division among most Republicans who simply do not like Mitt Romney and those who consistently act like it’s an affront to human decency if you criticize him.

Here’s what Romney had to say yesterday regarding Trump and Ukraine.

And here’s Trump’s response.

The rules are as follows. Romney is always allowed to go after Trump, even before all the facts are in. He can virtue signal his pants off, use words like “appalling,” and make bold proclamations with immunity. But the moment someone goes back at him, it’s automatically responses like this.

I’m seriously starting to think a certain segment of Republicans have a bot that runs in the background of their accounts and anytime Romney is criticized, a post calling him a “good man” is immediately put up.

And that’s the divide illustrated. Some are obsessed with decorum and the idea that Romney is above reproach. Other’s see him as the opportunistic, flip-flopping politician that he is. Let’s not forget that Romney was once unabashedly pro-choice and still supports Roe v. Wade. This is the guy who invented the Obamacare scheme and then opposed it when he ran for President. But he’s “good” because he generally carries himself in a way that makes Bill Kristol happy.

At some point, the Republican establishment class are going to have to accept the fact that Mitt Romney is never going to be a thing again. No matter how many times they tell themselves that Romney would have won in 2016 and Trump only won because Hillary, we aren’t going back. People simply do not like the pompous nature with which he carries himself.

Perhaps the worst part about Romney is how much of a coward he is when it comes to going after anyone but Donald Trump. That’s the easy thing to do. Bashing Trump gets you back slaps on CNN and praise from Morning Joe. There’s nothing brave about mouthing off about the President. What would be brave is Romney putting out a tweet going after Schiff for lying last week and telling Wolf Blitzer that he’s a sucker for having Schiff do it to his face. But did he do that? Of course he didn’t, just like he never put out a tweet criticizing the Obama administration’s behavior in 2016.

But if Trump does something, he’s always there to give his two cents. Most Republicans tired of this game a very long time ago. We notice when the virtue signaling only goes in one direction and it should surprise no one when we don’t respond well to it.

Robby Starbuck put a thread out expressing a common sentiment.

Anyone that thinks Romney is sincere in his one-sided, select criticism of Trump is kidding themselves. This, like everything throughout Romney’s career, is simply about politics and power. He believes he can ride this storm out and keep his hands clean, somehow regaining prominence after 2020. It’s not going to happen and voters will make sure of it.

I’ll end by pointing out the hypocrisy here as well. The same people defending Romney for attacking Trump have repeatedly cited Reagan’s “11th commandment” to assert that Trump shouldn’t  criticize other Republicans. Why doesn’t Romney have to abide by that one? I think we know the answer.

While some are clutching their pearls, I’ve not no problem with Trump hitting back at Romney. The Utah Senator is welcome to not tweet if he doesn’t want to be responded to.

NBC Throws Another Half-Baked Allegation Against President Trump

Westlake Legal Group central-intelligence-agency-620x428 NBC Throws Another Half-Baked Allegation Against President Trump whistleblower complaint Politics nbc Media ken dilanian Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Courtney Simmons Elwood cia Allow Media Exception

Just when you thought Robert Mueller’s report had put the fabulists, con artists, and outright liars in the mainstream media out of the limelight, along comes another contrived bullsh** conspiracy theory to bring them back to center stage.

This one is from NBC’s Ken Dilanian. Back in 2014, he was revealed to basically be an unpaid asset of the CIA. During the Russia Hoax, he acquired the nickname “Fusion Ken” because it was obvious that he was Fusion GPS’s go-to guy to plan conspiracy theories. So with the close ties to the CIA and Fusion GPS it is hardly a shock that he was the lead writer on CIA’s top lawyer made ‘criminal referral’ on whistleblower’s complaint about Trump conduct.

Weeks before the whistleblower’s complaint became public, the CIA’s top lawyer made what she considered to be a criminal referral to the Justice Department about the whistleblower’s allegations that President Donald Trump abused his office in pressuring the Ukrainian president, U.S. officials familiar with the matter tell NBC News.

The move by the CIA’s general counsel, Trump appointee Courtney Simmons Elwood, meant she and other senior officials had concluded a potential crime had been committed, raising more questions about why the Justice Department later declined to open an investigation.

The phone call that Elwood considered to be a criminal referral is in addition to the referral later received as a letter from the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community regarding the whistleblower complaint.

Justice Department officials said they were unclear whether Elwood was making a criminal referral and followed up with her later to seek clarification but she remained vague.

Elwood, the CIA’s general counsel, first learned about the matter because the complainant, a CIA officer, passed his concerns about the president on to her through a colleague. On Aug. 14, she participated in a conference call with the top national security lawyer at the White House and the chief of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

On that call, Elwood and John Eisenberg, the top legal adviser to the White House National Security Council, told the top Justice Department national security lawyer, John Demers, that the allegations merited examination by the DOJ, officials said.

According to the officials, Elwood was acting under rules that a report must occur if there is a reasonable basis to the allegations, defined as “facts and circumstances…that would cause a person of reasonable caution to believe that a crime has been, is being, or will be committed.”

A DOJ official said Attorney General William Barr was made aware of the conversation with Elwood and Eisenberg, and their concerns about the president’s behavior, in the days that followed.

The CIA general counsel either made a criminal referral or she did not. There is no universe in which she made something which she “considered to be” a criminal referral because there are actual laws and regulations that define that. The IC IG did make a referral of possible criminal conduct which involved tying campaign finance laws to the rack and stretching them until they were broad enough to cover most anything. Surely, the CIA general counsel is bright enough to know what a criminal referral looks like.

(Let me digress here for a second. The claim that asking the Ukrainian president to investigate probable felonious acts by US citizens, not matter how politically connected they are within the Democrat party, is not a crime. It is a duty. Saying that this qualifies as “something of value” for campaign finance purposes also criminalizes signing trade deals in a campaign year, or signing a treaty, or visiting a foreign capital, or basically any act a president undertakes to create positive news for his administration.)

The alleged misconduct is exactly the same act that DOJ’s Criminal Division investigated. So no matter what she “considered” to have happened, the allegation she allegedly (and keep in mind that we are dealing with Dilanian here) “considered” to have been reported was investigated.

Of course, there is a very good reason why she used a phone call rather than a written referral. She didn’t want to beclown herself. Remember this: “the complainant, a CIA officer, passed his concerns about the president on to her through a colleague.” The complaint she received was gossip delivered by a messenger. Knowing what we currently know about the complainant–he’s a liar who did not tell the IC IG that he was coordinating directly with Adam Schiff’s goons and he apparently worked in direct support of Joe Biden when he served on the NSC–he seems to have been trying to shotgun this allegation. Not only did he go the “whistleblower” route himself, but he scattered the allegations to at least the CIA General Counsel. It is a safe bet that the same meat puppet who delivered the allegations to her also delivered them to the CIA IG. We can probably bet the General Counsel at the ODNI got them, too. Also by cut out.

What is abundantly clear is that there are a non-trivial number of CIA officers who have never accepted Donald Trump’s election and who are still actively involved in sedition even after the Russia Hoax cratered. The quicker that President Trump forces a movement against these people and publicly names and shames (I say shame metaphorically because there is zero evidence these people are capable of shame) them, they are going to continue with this conspiracy to try to bring him down.

Is Mitt Romney Eyeing a Primary Challenge Of President Trump

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Romney-3 Is Mitt Romney Eyeing a Primary Challenge Of President Trump utah republicans Politics Mitt Romney Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump Allow Media Exception 2020 republican primary

Last week, in the aftermath of the release of the so-called whistleblower complaint alleging wadded panties in conjunction with a call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky, one senator broke ranks with his colleagues and led the charge condemning President Trump. Mitt freakin Romney.

There are two parts that play into this.

We know that Bill Kristol is intelligent enough to realize that the low wattage, low energy, low appeal troika of Bill Weld, Mark Sanford, and Joe Walsh are much more of a laugh track than they are a challenge to Trump. Not only does no one know or care who Bill Weld is, his snooty, elitist New England version of the GOP took is last gasp some years ago. Mark Sanford, at one time, could have been a viable candidate but getting your butt kicked in a primary in a state where you have been governor and then not helping the GOP candidate simply underscores that fact that, at best, he’s a cynical opportunist who has been rejected by his own state. Joe Walsh probably needs some way to pay child support payments.

The second part is that Romney has made this statement:

The former GOP presidential nominee and current U.S. senator from Utah said Thursday ahead of the third Democratic debate that he does not intend to endorse anyone in 2020.

On Friday, this began circulating:

If you put the Kristol piece, the attack on Trump, and the declaration he won’t endorse in 2020 together with the rumor that Romney is touching base with his donor network you can see a possible Romney challenge to Trump in the nascent stages. I don’t consider this to be far fetched. No one thinks Romney and Trump exchange Christmas cards. Romney has never made any secret of his disdain for Trump and for Trump voters. With the Omidyar funded primary challenges looking more and more like the Three Stooges than an existential threat to Trump, it isn’t hard to see where at guy with Romney’s massive ego could convince himself that the he’s so beloved in the GOP that he’d be an instant front runner.

My theory would be that it was the Posobiec tweet rather than the Romney criticism that set off President Trump today:

Factually, most of what’s in the tweets are true, if inartfully worded. I mean, who can forget with the improbably named Candy Crowley pushed Barack Obama out of the way so she, as the debate moderator, could boatrace a hapless, befuddled Mitt Romney.

And the Vichy-cons are bewildered:

In 2012, I opposed him in the primary and focused on attacking Obama in the general because I was (an am) convinced that he’d leave the national GOP in the same shambles that he left the MA GOP. As John Nolte wrote at Bradbard (and this is the first time I’ve ever quoted him) says: “When he does run for president again, the same media that relentlessly tarred him as a sexist, racist, plutocrat, job-killing corporate raider who tortures dogs, bullies gays, and gives women cancer, will appreciate him this time.”

No. We’ve had our fill of Romney. I’ve never believed that he believed in anything much more substantial than his own self-aggrandizement. His actions over the past week only make that belief much more firm.

Iran Tried to Hack a 2020 Presidential Candidate As the Media Suddenly Don’t Care About Election Interference

The Democrats’ favorite rogue terrorist regime is at it again. This time they got caught trying to hack a 2020 Presidential candidate, among other government figures, in an apparent attempt to interfere in the coming election.

Here’s the report from Politico.

Hackers linked to the Iranian government have targeted the campaign of at least one 2020 presidential contender, Microsoft announced today in a blog post.

The technology giant also witnessed “significant” digital activity by the group, which it dubbed “Phosphorous,” against current and former U.S. government officials, journalists covering global politics and prominent Iranians living outside of Iran.

Not one major news source is reporting in their headlines who the actual target was. I’ll let you decide if that’s purposeful or not, but we do indeed know the answer.

I have a feeling that if Elizabeth Warren was almost hacked by Russia, for example, that she’d make the headline. Instead, the media are downplaying this as they always do when anything doesn’t play into their narrative. NBC put out a video on it but no print story. The Washington Post tried to spin it as “hundreds targeted” in order to downplay Trump as a victim. CNN couldn’t be bothered to even report it as of this writing.

It’s amazing how a foreign dictatorship trying to hack the 2020 election is all the sudden a page A47 story when it can’t be blamed on Trump. Odd, right? Of course, if Trump now asks for an investigation, he’ll probably be accused of trying to influence the election or something.

This is a serious problem though. For all the gnashing of teeth about Russia, Iran is a more prominent threat right now and they have every reason to see to it that Trump isn’t re-elected. Their dream scenario is to get another weak kneed Democrat to sign another “deal” with that guarantees them the farm. You can expect China to get in on the action as well. Meanwhile, you can also expect the media to not care at all.

Meet the MSNBC Contributor and Collusion Truther that Adam Schiff Hired to Question Kurt Volker

Westlake Legal Group clowns-620x411 Meet the MSNBC Contributor and Collusion Truther that Adam Schiff Hired to Question Kurt Volker Ukraine Russia Conspiracy Theorist Politics Nancy Pelosi MSNBC media bias Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats Contributor Collusion Truther Clown Show Allow Media Exception adam schiff 2020

Everything that’s old is new again. It doesn’t matter how wrong these people where about the Mueller investigation, they just keep on keeping on and Adam Schiff is going to make sure of it.

Kurt Volker managed to frustrate Schiff during his testimony earlier this week, sending him scrambling to take over questioning from the lawyer he’d hired. He was supposed to give the Democrats the impeachment fodder they need and it just wasn’t happening.

Now we are finding out just who the counsel was that Schiff shoved aside in desperation.

This per The Federalist.

A former MSNBC contributor was tapped by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., to question Ukraine envoy Kurt Volker during a congressional hearing on Thursday, officials with direct knowledge of the proceedings told The Federalist. Daniel Goldman, a former legal analyst for MSNBC, posed multiple questions to Volker during Thursday’s closed-door interview of Volker…

…At one point Goldman became so flustered during his questioning of Volker that Schiff unexpectedly shut Goldman down and began questioning Volker himself, one official said.

The lack of seriousness by Schiff is obvious. He’s not out to conduct a real investigation. He’s out to push a narrative, and if that means bringing on a former MSNBC talking head to spin conspiracy theories, then that’s what he’s going to do. And to be certain, Goldman is a conspiracy theorist.

Last December, Goldman endorsed discredited conspiracy theories from Christopher Steele, a former British spy who was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to work with foreign governments to spread dirt about Trump in order to influence voters in the 2016 presidential elections. In December, Goldman claimed that a debunked allegation that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen had traveled to Prague in August of 2016 to secretly plot with Kremlin officials had been corroborated. He also claimed, long after the Steele dossier had been debunked, that “nothing had been undermined” in the dossier.

Goldman is apparently the Ken Dilanian of Natasha Bertrands. The talking point from December about the dossier not being discredited was bandied about by several well known Fusion GPS lackeys, including the Lawfare Blog. It’s unlikely Goldman’s repeating of that claim was by accident.

And if you guessed he pushed conspiritorial nonsense against Brett Kavanaugh as well, collect your winnings at the window.

As an MSNBC contributor, Goldman also falsely claimed during the nomination and confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that Christine Blasey Ford’s rape accusations against Kavanaugh had been corroborated.

The Blasey Ford accusation was a lot of things. Corroborated was not one of them. It should also surprise no one that this guy worked for Preet Bharara, the fired U.S. attorney that Democrats and Never Trumpers rallied around after Trump did the completely normal thing of cleaning house upon taking office (you’ll recall Clinton and Bush did the same thing). Bharara has gone on to become a vocal opponent of the President.

Schiff is simply getting the band back together here. All of the same people who have been wrong about nearly everything during the Trump era are now going to be at the forefront of this latest nonsense. You can expect it to end the same way for them.

‘Flat-Out False’: Unlikely Source Calls Out Adam Schiff For Lying About Dealings With Whistleblower

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., talks to reporters about the release by the White House of a transcript of a call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Voldymyr Zelenskiy, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

As we all know, a broken clock is right twice a day, and in this instance the broken clock is none other than the reliably left-leaning crew at the Washington Post.

Glenn Kessler, the paper’s fact checker, surprisingly took House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff to the woodshed today for recent (false) claims he made stating his office had “not spoken directly with the whistleblower” at the center of the Trump/Zelensky phone call controversy:

“Have you heard from the whistleblower? Do you want to hear from the whistleblower? What protections could you provide to the whistleblower?” [Sam] Stein, an MSNBC contributor, asked on “Morning Joe.”

“We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to,” Schiff responded. “But I am sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised, as the law requires, by the inspector general or the director of national Intelligence just how he is supposed to communicate with Congress, and so the risk to the whistleblower is retaliation.”

The Post said Schiff’s response was “flat-out false.”

“Schiff on ‘Morning Joe’ clearly made a statement that was false,” the fact-checker said. “He now says he’s was answering the wrong question, but if that was the case, he should have quickly corrected the record. He compounded his falsehood by telling reporters a few days later that if not for the [inspector general’s] office, the committee would not have known about the complaint. That again suggested there had been no prior communication.”

Kessler also pointed out two other instances of Schiff being dishonest on this same question. One of them was during a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper and the other was during a Capitol Hill press conference.

As a result of his “flat-out false” comments, Kessler awarded Schiff with four Pinocchios.

Kessler, who I suspect has a mostly liberal audience of loyal Twitter followers, took issue with President Trump’s touting of the ruling, and made note several times of the fact that he had ruled similarly on some Trump claims as well. But his tweets sorta kinda missed the point:

I helpfully fact checked the fact checker himself:

Sometimes they make it too easy.

    News Breaks That the Whistle-Blower Worked for a Current 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate

    Adam Schiff by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

    I get to gloat a little on this one.

    Earlier today, I wrote on the news that the Trump-Ukraine “whistle-blower” was a registered Democrat. On its own, that’s somewhat telling news, but perhaps not overwhelmingly meaningful without more information. In my article, I opined why I thought CNN chose to report the story in the first place given their editorial leans.

    Now, you might ask yourself why CNN would report this. The answer is simple. It’s called getting ahead of a story to help frame it. We’ve seen this over and over when damaging information that could possibly help Donald Trump is on the verge of being exposed. Instead of letting it drop, legacy news agencies run and get anonymous quotes to try to get the information out there while presenting it in the best possible light…

    The goal here is to get the political affiliation of the whistle-blower out there early so that when more evidence of bias drops, Democrats can claim it’s old news and not relevant to the complaint.

    Games are being played here. Don’t be fooled.

    Like clockwork, we’ve now got more information on the bias of the whistle-blower and I was exactly right. Not only was a he registered Democrat, the guy worked on the campaign of a current 2020 candidate.

    Given that this likely occurred some years ago before this person became a CIA agent, the most likely answer is that it was on one of Joe Biden’s campaigns or possibly under Biden during the Obama campaign. We had already heard rumors that the ICIG found bias toward Biden and this latest revelation drops everything into to place.

    In short, we have a registered Democrat that worked for a Democrat presidential candidate, who went to Adam Schiff first, and we are supposed to believe this is all on the up and up? Yeah, I’m gonna go with a no on that one. The complaint itself has continues to fall apart, and even though he got some details of the call correct, none of his most salacious allegations have been shown to be true. If that sounds a lot like the Steele dossier, congrats on being more perceptive than all of the legacy media.

    And Hillary’s DeLorean-ensconced.

    Hence, the former First Lady took to Twitter to offer something not only resentful but also ridiculous. 

    She quoted civil rights attorney, Democratic Texas Rep. Barbara Jordan from 1974:

    “If the impeachment provision in the Constitution of the United States will not reach the offenses charged here, then perhaps that 18th-century Constitution should be abandoned to a 20th-century paper shredder!”

    Barbara was referring to the shenanigans of Richard Nixon.

    Hillary was, of course, referring to the impeachment of her hus– I mean, Donald Trump.

    So Trump’s offenses are so extreme that the founding document of our nation should be shredded if they don’t apply?

    I have a suggestion: How about, instead, say something not completely absurd? Just an idea.

    But let’s go with this.

    Is impeachment reasonable?

    As I covered previously, Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel say no:

    The key question with Trump’s Ukraine call, though, is whether the president’s actions, advisable or not, rise to the level of an impeachable offense. It’s hard to argue they do. The president did not, as was first reported, offer a quid pro quo to the Ukrainians. He did not condition any U.S. support on a Biden investigation. The Justice Department has already looked at the totality of the call and determined that Trump did not break the law.

    Additionally, though impeachment may be, for Hillary, a shot of the ol’ euphoria like a grand inhalation at the dentist’s, on the other side of the proceedings will lie something else shredded: the Democrats’ hope for 2020 success. For reasons stated here, here, here, and here.

    And the failed 2016 candidate’s helping it right along.

    She shoulda stuck with the tomatoes.

    But she’s stuck far behind in the past. And she can’t ketchup.

    In addition to trying to strong-arm cable news outlets into suppressing the Hunter Biden angle of the Ukraine story, Joe Biden is now refusing to answer certain questions about it during press conferences.

    The embattled 2020 Democratic candidate was in Los Angeles today for a labor union summit and while there took some questions from reporters about his campaign and, of course, Trump and the Ukraine issue.

    One exchange he had with a reporter was particularly intense, and it was in regards to his role during the Obama administration overseeing United States policy towards Ukraine while his son Hunter was a board member for a Ukrainian gas company.

    The reporter got straight to the point. “How was your role as vice president in charge of policy in Ukraine and your son’s job in Ukraine – how is that not a conflict of interest?”

    “It’s not a conflict of interest,” Biden emphatically responded. “There’s been no indication of any conflict of interest from Ukraine or anywhere else. Period.”

    As the reporter attempted to interject and ask about even the appearance of a conflict of interest, Biden shut him down.

    “I’m not going to respond to that,” Biden yelled. “Let’s focus on the problem. Focus on this man, what he’s doing, that no president has ever done. No president,” Biden loudly continued while aggressively pointing his finger at the questioner.

    Watch:

    During the same press conference, Biden was asked about the golf photo of himself, his son, and a Ukrainian gas company executive shown in the now-deleted Nickelback video Trump shared on Twitter earlier this week, and whether he stood by the statement that he never discussed his son’s business dealings overseas. He says he stands by it:

    How long before he stops answering questions on the issue altogether? Will media firefighter Brian Stelter condemn Biden’s latest verbal assault on the media? Stay tuned….
