Deep State IG Releases Statement: Why They Changed Whistleblower Forms to Include: Watercooler Talk, Rumors, Hearsay and Cafeteria Conversations

Most of you are probably aware that the rules for whistleblower complaints were recently changed. This actually created an issue due to the timing when it was done. It was changed just before the whisteblower complaint was filed against President Trump for his call with Ukrainian President Zelensky which is VERY suspicious.

The Deep State Intelligence Community Inspector General, Michael Atkinson, released a news statement this week explaining why they thought it necessary to alter the rules on whistleblower complaints to include watercooler talk, rumors, hearsay and cafeteria conversations rather than just firsthand information.

Here is what Atkinson said about changing the rules,

“Although the form requests information about whether the Complainant possesses first-hand knowledge about the matter about which he or she is lodging the complaint, there is no such requirement set forth in the statute. In fact, by law the Complainant – or any individual in the Intelligence Community who wants to report information with respect to an urgent concern to the congressional intelligence committees – need not possess first-hand information in order to file a complaint or information with respect to an urgent concern. The ICIG cannot add conditions to the filing of an urgent concern that do not exist in law.”

Read the full news release from the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community down below:

Atkinson also said that the CIA “whistleblower’s” concerns appeared credible so they made everything urgent, even though the CIA has proven to be as compromised.

All of this tells us a number of things.

First, we now know that there is a spy in the White House. Secondly, that there is a purposeful attempt to gain damaging information on President Trump in the attempt at removing him from office. This is a coup d’etat attempt, it’s as clear as day and it needs to stop because this is treason.

Schiff’s Impeachment Plan Imploding After Republicans Catch Him Breaking Committee Rules

Schiff’s Impeachment Plan Imploding After Republicans Catch Him Breaking Committee Rules

Thursday wasn’t a good day from California knucklehead and Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff. After the revelations about his contact with the “whistleblower” before the complaint was filed were revealed, it appears he intentionally broke committee rules.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said in a statement:

We learn from the press today that Chm Schiff had prior knowledge and involvement in the [whistleblower] complaint. He withheld this info from the American people and even from the Intel Cmte. In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY) who is another Republican on the House Intelligence Committee also confirmed that Schiff kept the information from Republicans and is calling him to step down.

Stefanik said, “Re-upping my tweet from last week given the breaking news today that Adam Schiff had early access to the whistleblower & DID NOT share it with his own committee – instead he manipulated this information & played partisan political games. He should immediately step down as Chair.”

Fred Fleitz, former CIA analyst and chief of staff to the National Security Council, said Schiff broke committee rules when he hid information from the Republicans.

“Under @HouseIntelComm rules, any classified info brought to the committee from outside sources MUST BE SHARED WITH BOTH SIDES. Schiff broke committee rules by not telling committee GOP members about this,” tweeted Fleitz, who once worked as a staffer on the House Intelligence Committee. “This is a very serious violation of @HouseIntelComm rules. Why did Schiff do this, especially when he was using this information to score political points throughout the month of August? The reason is clear: it was part of a the latest Dem ploy to take down @realDonaldTrump.”

On Wednesday the New York Times reported that the “whistleblower” who is a CIA official met with a Schiff staffer with concerns about President Trump. Only after that meeting did the “whistleblower” file a complaint with the inspector general and file a whistleblower complaint.

It’s all starting to unravel for Mr. Schiff and his impeachment plan is falling apart.

Pelosi Engages Barr Fight

Barr Fight, Pelosi, #TeamKJ, #KevinJackson | Image Courtesy: BBC

What happens every time the Democrats investigate Trump? Nothing. So what do they do next? Investigate the investigation. This whistle-blower scandal is no different.

Now, Nancy Pelosi says AG Barr is protecting Donald Trump with a cover-up, because she is desperate to save face. As recently put it, Pelosi fell into Trump’s trap- hook, line and sinker.

Before Trump released the phone call, we predicted the utter failure of this whistle-blower.

Democrats have only one chance in 2020. They must impeach Trump in order to take over the White House. Thus, it’s no wonder they continually search for grounds to impeach.

Currently, Democrats base their fantasies on a phone call with the Ukraine. But tomorrow will come and bust their hopes and dreams yet again. Especially now that Donald Trump said he is releasing the transcript of said phone call.

We knew Nancy would take it hard.

In fact, GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz weighed in.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives has been functionally catfished into a politically fatal impeachment proceeding based on rumors, based on faulty evidence and based on a bloodlust for the president politically that does not serve our nation well.

Let me give you the high points. There is no quid-pro-quo between President Trump and President Zelensky for anything, much less military aid. There is no eight times of reference to Joe Biden. I think “The Wall Street Journal” will have a good deal of retracting today. And in fact, President Zelensky himself identifies the rooting out of corruption. President Zelensky said “we here in the Ukraine are trying to drain the swamp much like you are trying to drain the swamp in the United States of America.”

This isn’t a call about leverage. This isn’t a call about threats. This was a mutually appreciative and laudatory call between two leaders who are trying to clean up some of the garbage in their respective countries that has polluted politics. Now, the president does ask for a favor from President Zelensky but the favor is on behalf of our nation. The favor we seek is cooperation between his government and Attorney General Bill Barr as we work to determine what activities in the Ukraine may have been in any way involved in the 2016 — not 2020 — but in the 2016 efforts to interfere with the United States election.

My next prediction was that Democrats would again fail to impeach, and their efforts will backfire in 2020. But I left out one important step- the part where Democrats pretend there is more proof somewhere, if they only dig deeper.

Barr Fight

Now, Pelosi’s strategy is to paint AG William Barr as unhinged. That would certainly help with his counter investigation of the Russian investigation. Further, Pelosi could theoretically keep her impeachment inquiry alive another day.

According to Fox News:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Friday that Attorney General William Barr has “gone rogue,” alleging there was an attempted “cover-up” of the whistle-blower complaint that has led to an impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
“He’s gone rogue,” Pelosi said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” after host Joe Scarborough asked if she was concerned that the country’s institutions could fail due to Barr’s behavior.
“I think where they are going is the cover-up of the cover-up, and that’s very really sad for them. To have a Justice Department go so rogue, they have been for a while, and now it just makes matters worse,” said Pelosi, faulting Barr for instructing the director of national intelligence to bring the whistle-blower complaint to the White House.

Grasping at Straws

There’s a serious lack of common sense brewing here. Barr and Maguire knew this whistle-blower complain was nonsense. Thus, they acted in the best interest of justice. Which kind of makes sense, considering it’s the Justice Department. But Pelosi needs a win, thus she’s grasping at straws for anything to “get” Donald Trump.

Fox continues:

Pelosi said acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire “broke the law” by not immediately turning over the whistle-blower complaint to Congress. She called Maguire a man of “great reputation” and said she “felt sorry for him” because he was placed in an “unprecedented situation.”
House Democrats are moving full speed ahead with the impeachment inquiry announced earlier this week, with reports indicating lawmakers could file articles of impeachment before year’s end.

Liberals Furious: NY Times Doxxed Whistleblower

New York Times, #TeamKJ, #KevinJackson | Image Courtesy: CNBC

#CancelNYT is a trending hashtag on Twitter now that the liberal media bandits broke their own rules- protect the source.

Thursday, the Times published an article revealing the whistleblower is a former CIA officer who once detailed the White House.

This information seems to be the most we’ve learned thus far about the whistleblower, and it’s revelation set the internet on fire.

As Fox New explains:

The “exclusive details” were revealed in a report based on corroborated accounts of three unnamed sources, not the whistle-blower himself. The Times also reported that lawyers for the whistle-blower refused to confirm that he worked for the CIA and said that publishing information about him was “dangerous.” (Fox News has not confirmed The Times’ report.)
The whistleblower filed a formal nine-page complaint accusing the White House of covering up a July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump asked the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
Trump reportedly pondered who gave the whistleblower the information and said the person is “close to a spy,” according to audio of his remarks at a private event in a New York hotel obtained by The Los Angeles Times. Some critics of the Gray Lady’s decision feel that the whistle-blower’s safety could be at risk.
The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“Y’all really doxxed the whistleblower? If anything happens to him/her, it’s on you, #CancelNYT,” tweeted one person.
“Our country’s heroes are worth far more than clicks and views. Doxxing the whistle-blower endangers the individual’s life, which is especially heinous considering the whistle-blower went through proper government channels. The NYT protects Trump sources better than this. #CancelNYT,” wrote Dr. Eugene Gu.

Justifiable Fears

It’s almost funny how much leftists fear Trump’s discovery of the whistleblower’s name.

“Our country’s heroes are worth far more than clicks and views. Doxxing the whistleblower endangers the individual’s life, which is especially heinous considering the whistleblower went through proper government channels. The NYT protects Trump sources better than this. #CancelNYT”

But if you think about it, I can see where leftist’s get these fears. We all know what happens to those who snitch on the Clintons. Let’s name a few of the dead bodies oddly linked to the Clintons: James McDougal, Mary Mahoney, Vince Foster, Ron Brown, Paul Tully, Kathy Ferguson, Suzanne Coleman, and James Milan.

Oh, and all these body guards are dead: Major William S. Barkey, Jr., Captain Scott J. Reynolds, Sgt. Brian Hanley, Sgt. Tim Sabel, Major General William Robertson, Col. William Densberger, Col. Robert Kelly, Spec. Gary Rhodes, Steve Willis, Robert Williams, Conway LeBleu, Todd McKeehan.

Like the mysterious death of Seth Rich, each of these deaths is explained as suicide, car wreck, plane crash or fire. And connecting the dots between the Clintons and these bodies is almost always labeled conspiracy theory. But here’s the thing about conspiracies: sometimes, they’re 100% true. That’s how the Clintons hide in plain sight. They laugh off serious allegations as extreme conspiracy theories hatched by nutcases and detract from the very real facts surrounding each body.

But I digress… the real point to this isn’t the Clinton body count. I mention it only to explain why leftists are terrified of Trump. They’re deeply ingrained in a culture that murders double-crossing snitches. Thus, leftist loyalty airs on the side of secrets. And exposing those secrets will cost the NYTimes more than they predicted.

The Fallout

We all know nothing speaks as loud as dollars do. If these tweeters follow through with their threats, the Times will hear their message loud and clear.

Fox elaborates:

In addition to canceling subscriptions, others even called for the firing of Times’ executive editor Dean Baquet, who had issued a statement explaining why the Gray Lady chose to publish the information.
“Dean Baquet should absolutely lose his job over this. Quickly. The damage to the whistleblower’s safety is already done, but @nytimes must condemn this decision to protect future sources & whistleblowers. This cannot be left as an acceptable precedent. #CancelNYT,” Twitter user @KristinMinkDC wrote.
Baquet responded to the criticism in an article published Thursday night saying the Times decided to publish “limited information” about the whistleblower to give him credibility against Trump’s claims that the unidentified person was a “political hack job.”
“The president and some of his supporters have attacked the credibility of the whistle-blower, who has presented information that has touched off a landmark impeachment proceeding,” Baquet said. “We wanted to provide information to readers that allows them to make their own judgments about whether or not he is credible.”

In other words, liberals did what they could to discredit the President. They didn’t protect the integrity of journalism- not if Trump was the prize. Bad news is– none of this whistleblower nonsense amounts to a hill of beans. Impeachment is once again out of reach.

REVEALED: Deep State Intel Community and Congress Colluded – Whistleblower Documents ALSO ALTERED by CRS — Likely Illegal Act

Within four days of the filing of the phony whistleblower complaint, the Deep State in the intelligence community changed the rules so that you don’t have to have first-hand knowledge of a possible crime. You can file solely on say so. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be hearsay, you can just make up anything you wish and say you want to remain anonymous.

From The Gateway Pundit

The tweets are somewhat difficult to understand so here’s a summary of what Beebe is saying:

** The Deep State changed the requirements for filling out the whistleblower form and in August allowed whistleblowers to use ‘hearsay’ when filing a complaint.  At this same time the whistleblower filled out the form slandering President Trump using hearsay. (1-6)

** The Deep State Intel community only updated their online site regarding whistleblower protections four days ago to reflect the recent changes before the recent complaint was released.  This was done in spite of zero legislative action on the related regulations. The term ‘urgent concern’ is now used 10 times in the Congressional Research Service (CRS) manual and was only used 2 times in the prior publication. (7- 10)

** The CRS also recently added wording for addressing disagreements between the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG). (11-12)

**  The CRS cites the regulations for the ICIG chapter and verse for all but 3 paragraphs in the footnotes to the CRS manual (See section 3.A.ii) which discuss the ICIG’s authority to report directly to Congress.  The CRS omits a key clause in the law related to the types of people that the ICIG can investigate.  It is related to only current or former employees of the intelligence community. (13-16)

** This is the key.  The law does not require that a whistleblower complaint of President Donald Trump be provided to Congress – as a matter of fact, only whistleblower complaints of current or former Intel community employees are to be reviewed by the ICIG and only these investigations have a requirement to be forwarded to Congress.

**  The CRS then added an editorial note that is highly debatable but comes across as fact.  It states that who makes the call on whether something is an ‘urgent concern’ is unknown.  This implies that Congress can make this call but the statute indicates that this is a decision to be made within the Intel community. (17-18)

** “Folks – this is an attempted coup!”  (19)

 

The Transcript We Really Want to See


Commentary by Ann Coulter | Posted: Sep 25, 2019 7:04 PM

The Transcript We Really Want to See | Joe and Hunter Biden | Source: AP Photo/Nick Wass

Editor’s note: The following column contains graphic language.

The transcript of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky is yet another illustration of the rule: Never ask a question you don’t know the answer to.

But on the basis of one drama queen’s overreaction to a rumor she’d heard about what was said on a phone call she didn’t hear (I’m assuming the whistleblower is Christine Blasey Ford), the Democrats have launched impeachment proceedings against the president.

I guess they figured it’s easier than flying to South Dakota with picks and chisels and carving Trump into Mount Rushmore. But it will have the same effect.

Now that the transcript has been released, it’s The New York Times that doesn’t want anyone to see it.

The transcript I’d like to see is the one of Nancy Pelosi reading the Trump transcript. 

F@@@@@@CK! Whose f***ing idea was it to demand this goddamn transcript?
F@CK!
F@@CK!
F@@@CK!

The absolute worst version for Trump — i.e. the one being repeated non-stop on MSNBC — is that he did exactly what Obama and Biden were doing to Ukraine: intimidating an ally into giving us something in exchange for the foreign aid we were giving them.

Biden himself bragged about getting Ukraine’s prosecutor fired by threatening to withhold a big fat check from them.

The Democrats’ argument is: No, no, no! When WE were pressuring Ukraine, we were doing it for good! Don’t you understand? We’re good; they’re bad.

The other reason the media are going to have to bury this transcript is that Trump brought up a few items that the media have been hoping the public would never find out about.

Trump said: “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.”

Well, that’s something the media haven’t mentioned before. Ninety-nine percent of Americans will be hearing about the funny business with Biden’s son, Hunter, for the first time with the release of this transcript.

Why did Vice President Biden order the Ukrainian president to fire the prosecutor investigating the Ukrainian company paying his son millions of dollars? Are Democrats claiming that this company was clean as a whistle and it was an absolute OUTRAGE that it was being investigated?

The second issue the media does not want anyone to think about is CrowdStrike.

What is CrowdStrike, you ask? That is the cybersecurity firm that is the sole source of the claim that the Russians hacked the DNC’s emails — which launched the conspiracy theories that tied our country in knots for the past three years.

The Russian collusion story was originally hatched by Hillary Clinton in the summer of 2016 to cover up the utter corruption revealed by the dump of Democratic National Committee emails on Wikileaks. As was her practice whenever a scandal threatened to engulf her, Hillary rushed out and told the press to investigate something else.

And “the great story” about the DNC email hack wasn’t about a “vast right-wing conspiracy” — as she claimed when the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. No, this time, it was a vast Russian conspiracy!

At the time, the entire media laughed at Hillary’s Russian conspiracy nonsense — The New York Times, New York Newsday, the Los Angeles Times and so on. But then Trump won the election, and suddenly the Russia conspiracy seemed totally believable. What else could explain how Americans could put this boob in the White House?

The subsequent three years of breathless Russia coverage was based entirely on the word of one cybersecurity firm, CrowdStrike, that the DNC’s emails had been hacked by Russia.

Recall that the DNC wouldn’t allow the FBI or any other U.S. government official anywhere near its computers. That’s precisely why so many cybersecurity experts doubted that it was the Russians: The FBI was never allowed to perform its own investigation.

CrowdStrike was founded by Ukrainian Dmitri Alperovitch (now an American citizen apparently — because who isn’t?) and funded by the fanatically anti-Russian Ukrainian oligarch Viktor Pinchuk Foundation.

Talk about interfering with our democracy! Alperovitch and Pinchuk sent one political party and nine-tenths of the American media off on a wild goose chase into Russian collusion that, after years of accusations, investigations and embarrassing conspiracy-mongering … turned up goose eggs.

The entire Russian insanity was launched by a couple of Ukrainians. I think a lot of us would like to get to the bottom of that.

This is why Trump said to President Zelensky: “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say CrowdStrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people … The server, they say Ukraine has it.”

(How’d you like to be the Ukrainian translator for a Trump conversation?)

Trump has been justly criticized for hiring his daughter and son-in-law at the White House. But at least when he pressures a foreign leader for a favor, it’s to investigate corruption, not to get a prosecutor off his son’s back. Maybe Biden’s son was guilty, maybe he was innocent. But it is a fact that Joe Biden held up foreign aid to a desperately needy ally in exchange for their halting prosecution that implicated his son. It’s not Trump’s fault that Biden is now running for president.

I’ll give the Democrats this: They’ve gotten so good at trying to remove Trump from office that, instead of three years, their insane accusations blow up in their faces within a week.
