IG Complaint Claims Ukraine “Whistleblower” May be Soliciting Illicit Donations
In an exclusive report, Fox News claims a new complaint filed to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) alleges that the Trump-Ukraine “whistleblower” may have broken the law after soliciting over $227,000 from “mostly anonymous sources” through the crowdfunding website, GoFundMe.
The complaint, which was filed last week and obtained by Fox News, alleged the donations from roughly 6,000 individuals “clearly constitute” gifts to a current intelligence official that may be restricted because of the employee’s official position pursuant to 5 CFR 2635.203 and other statutes. To date, the GoFundMe has raised over $227,000.
The complaint also requests that the ICIG look into whether or not any contributions were made by a “foreign citizen or agent of a foreign government.”
Tully Rinckey PLLC, law firm representing the individual filing the complaint, tells Fox News that their client has served in the government and holds a top-secret SCI security clearance.
Anthony Gallo, the managing partner of Tully Rinckey PLLC, told Fox News, “I have not seen anything on this scale. It’s not about politics for my client — it’s whistleblower-on-whistleblower, and [my client’s] only interest is to see the government ethics rules are being complied with government-wide.”
