Alleged 'whistleblower' has ties to Russian collusion hoax
NY Post Editorial:
If rumors about the identity of the Ukraine whistleblower are true, it’s easy to see why Republicans have been pushing witnesses to name him — because it goes a long way to making Democrats’ impeachment case look like a rerun of the “collusion” delusion.In other words, the Democrats are rigging the system to coverup their own transgressions in his latest coup attempt by the left and their Deep State allies.
As Paul Sperry reports at RealClearPolitics, GOP members of the House committees tasked with the inquiry have been pressing witnesses about a specific former National Security Council aide who fits the known facts about the whistleblower.
But it’s other parts of his background that stand out: He’s a registered Democrat who worked not only with then-Veep Joe Biden but also with frothing-at-the-mouth anti-Trumper John Brennan, who as CIA chief was key to launching the “collusion” investigation back in 2016.
During the campaign, this NSC staffer also reportedly met at the White House with the Democratic National Committee opposition researcher leading an effort to link the Trump campaign to the Putin regime. And he left the NSC early in the Trump era under suspicion of being one of those feeding negative leaks to anti-Trump media.
Notably, the Republicans who had been pushing hardest to see if this was indeed the whistleblower will lose the chance to push harder — because the new rules passed in Thursday’s party-line vote shift the inquiry from three committees to just Intelligence.
