Whistleblower had ‘Political Bias’ Against Trump; Counsel Includes ‘Democratic Operative’
President Trump began his morning tweeting that “There has been no President in the history of our Country who has been treated so badly as I have. The Democrats are frozen with hatred and fear. They get nothing done. This should never be allowed to happen to another President. Witch Hunt!”

New information suggests that the whistleblower may in fact be on a witch hunt. In a Fox News Exclusive, A senior Trump Administration official said they “will release a document showing the intelligence community inspector general found the whistleblower who leveled an an explosive accusation against President Trump concerning his talks with Ukraine had ‘political bias’ in favor of ‘a rival candidate’ of the president.”
While the identity of the ‘rival candidate’ has not been released yet, another senior administration official assured that the White House is “working as quickly as it can to release to Congress the whistleblower complaint involving President Trump’s conversations with the leader with the leader of Ukraine, as long as it’s legally possible.”
Fox also reported that “A source familiar with the matter told Fox News this week that the whistleblower had no firsthand knowledge of Trump’s July call with Zelensky.” The case goes a step further; we have also learned from The Federalist, that the Whistleblower has a “legal team that includes a Democratic operative who worked for Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Hillary Clinton (D-NY).”
The “Democratic operative” is Andrew Bakaj, “now a managing partner at the Compass Rose Legal Group” who “has worked as an official in the CIA and Pentagon and specializes in whistleblower and security clearances in his legal practice.”
