Whistleblower had 'professional' tie to 2020 Democratic candidate

In an Aug. 26 letter, the Intelligence Community's inspector general, Michael Atkinson, wrote that the anonymous whistleblower who set off the Trump-Ukraine impeachment fight showed "some indicia of an arguable political bias ... in favor of a rival political candidate."

A few weeks later, news reports said the whistleblower's possible bias was that he is a registered Democrat. That was all. Incredulous commentary suggested that Republicans who were pushing the bias talking point were so blinded by their own partisanship that they saw simple registration with the Democratic Party as evidence of wrongdoing.

"Give me a break!" tweeted whistleblower lawyer Mark Zaid. "Bias? Seriously?"

Now, however, there is word of more evidence of possible bias on the whistleblower's part. Under questioning from Republicans during last Friday's impeachment inquiry interview with Atkinson, the inspector general revealed that the whistleblower's possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat. It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year's election.

"The IG said [the whistleblower] worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates," said one person with knowledge of what was said.

"The IG said the whistleblower had a professional relationship with one of the 2020 candidates," said another person with knowledge of what was said.Nancy Pelosi backs official impeachment inquiry

"What [Atkinson] said was that the whistleblower self-disclosed that he was a registered Democrat and that he had a prior working relationship with a current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate," said a third person with knowledge of what was said.

I'm sure more will come out, but if he was a holdover from the Obama administration, he might have worked with Biden in a professional capacity when Biden was VP.

I'm sure more will come out as this goes on

They aren't trying to keep the identity of the leaker secret because of their safety.

I don't like the "word is" game.  But this makes a whole lot of sense in trying to figure out why they are trotting out a second whistleblower to talk about a conversation that has been made public

See Sogsteel answer. Once that persons background and bias is known, he will be instantly discredited.

Trump would have been better off cleaning house and firing every holdover from previous administrations that he could.

Agree, but there is no good reason for Schiff not allowing the testimony to be made public, other than cherry picking what the MSM hears.

Because there are laws that protect whistleblowers.

Hope this helps.

Why do you guys even care about the whistleblower?

Trump released a transcript and admitted it, then doubled down and asked China to investigate Biden. 

The whistle blower thing is a distraction but I suppose when that's all you've got...

THIS.

And when they announced a 2nd whistle blower I was like "Why? What's the point? The transcript has already been released."

The media in this country truly IS the enemy. They've been spending the last 3 years 24 hours a day trying to overturn my vote.

one thread you ask how can the leaker have death threats if no one knows who it is. And in this one you say the leaker funds the democrats.

Surely you can see how silly this makes you look?

 

you are a fanatic. You cannot be taken seriously.

 

you are brainwashed.
