Anti-Trump "whistleblower" aided by "Whistleblower Aid"

Less than 5 minute read

September 26, 2019

It might not matter much now who the so-called “whistleblower” is; we know this person didn’t even hear the phone call that prompted his or her complaint. A more important question would be, who passed along such misinformation about the call, and why?

In my Wednesday commentary, I mentioned that the whistleblower’s attorney, Andrew Bakaj, had worked for Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer and had gone on to work for the CIA. We’ve got more detail today.

According to Tristan Justice at THE FEDERALIST, he has worked for both the CIA and the Pentagon and now specializes in whistleblower and security clearances in his legal practice. The managing partner at Compass Rose Legal Group, PLLC, Bakaj enjoys retweeting John Brennan and has bragged on Twitter about “running ops” to torpedo Trump nominees. For example, on September 25 of this year, he tweeted: “Thus far I’ve had a role in having a CIA IG removed and forced another one to withdraw his nomination for the position. We’ve had Congressional Intel Committee involvement – no small feat. I’m very patient and effective...This is another tactical and major salvo.”

So, who were the two IGs torpedoed by Bakaj? Well, back on May 30, he tweeted: “A big day. I’m suing DHS to release their findings about my allegations concerning David Buckley and Chris Sharpley, former CIA IG and President Trump’s nominee to be CIA IG.” Maybe these were the officials he later bragged about taking down.

It gets worse. According to Steven Nelson at the WASHINGTON EXAMINER, the whistleblower –- or more accurately, the official who claimed whistleblower status –- is also represented by veteran national security defense attorney Mark Zaid, co-founder of the organization Whistleblower Aid, which pledges free legal representation, rent (!), media coaching (!), and doctor bills and counseling to whistleblowers. Founded eight months after Trump’s inauguration (which should tell you a lot), it was launched with “an advertising blitz that included mobile billboards being driven close to the White House, Congress, the Pentagon, and all around the headquarters of the CIA and National Security Agency.” Bakaj is also a lawyer for Whistleblower Aid.

So, in effect, if you leak from Trump’s administration, they take care of you all the way. Some aspects of this, such as mortgage assistance and the like, are generally considered unethical in the legal profession, and the American Bar Association prohibits such financial support, “because,” the rules state, “to do so would encourage clients to pursue lawsuits that might not otherwise be brought and because such assistance gives lawyers too great a financial stake in the litigation.” But co-founder John Tye has said he believes what they are doing is “100 percent compliant with applicable ethics rules.”

Tye also claims Whistleblower Aid is non-partisan, but you will fall down laughing when you read what he said in 2017: “This is not a partisan effort. At the same time, the rule of law starts with the office of the President. Like many other people, we are definitely concerned about the things that are happening in the administration. The decision to fire [FBI Director] James Comey. The lack of transparency. A lot of people have questions about whether this administration respects the rule of law.”

I’ll bet a lot of people have questions about whether Whistleblower Aid is non-partisan, not to mention ethical, and how this so-called whistleblower came to be furnished with some outrageous gossip about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president. For the moment, we can only speculate. Did he or she get it from an administration insider who heard the call but who “oversold” it in an attempt to damage Trump? Or was this like the old game of “telephone” in which the recipient of the rumor doesn’t hear it quite right? Or was the information deliberately planted with this person to find out if he or she was a source of leaks?

It’s also unclear what sort of financial arrangement the whistleblower has with Zaid and Bakaj. Of course, as of yet we don’t even know who this person is. First things first.

Ukraine whistleblower’s lawyers work for group that offers to pay officials who leak against Trump

But we do know for sure that this person filed a complaint based only on hearsay, not firsthand information, accusing President Trump of calling for a “quid pro quo” during a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky in mid-July. (Zelensky, in a Wednesday press conference with President Trump, said he had not felt pressured.) For some reason, Intelligence IG Michael Atkinson decided this complaint, even with its total lack of evidence, was “urgent” and “credible” enough to brief congressional committees behind closed doors earlier this week, but cooler heads prevailed at the Department of National Intelligence and they did not immediately release the transcript to Congress, who responded with much gnashing of teeth and scenery-clawing.

Of course, you know the rest: The Democrats decided the content of the transcript didn’t even matter, and Nancy Pelosi, without taking a vote, announced an impeachment “inquiry” that Jerrold Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee was already conducting anyway. Her announcement really didn’t mean ANYTHING, but it was done to create drama and make people think they were getting closer to actual impeachment, and also to feed the 24-hour news beast.

And they did this the day before they knew Trump would be releasing the transcript. That gave them 24 more full hours of drama.

I told you on Tuesday that this might play out like the old “Br’er Rabbit” story in which Br’er Rabbit begs and pleads with Br’er Fox to do anything he wanted with him but please, PLEASE not to throw him in the briar patch! The pain and suffering would be too great to bear! So then, Br’er Fox, being mean and stupid, throws Br’er Rabbit in the briar patch, which is just what Br’er Rabbit wants him to do because he easily slides through the briars and gets away.

Sure enough, that’s what happened. Democrats in Congress, being mean and, let’s face it, pretty dumb (think AOC), did what they thought Trump DIDN’T want them to do: they insisted on getting hold of that transcript. But when they got it, the call turned out to be not nearly as bad as it was supposed to be, and Trump slipped through their fingers again. If that weren’t enough, there were also references in the transcript to things Democrats don’t want to be talking about AT ALL.

I’m referring to the DNC “Russian” hack and also, of course, Joe Biden. On Thursday, John Solomon will be breaking huge news concerning mountains of new evidence of Biden’s unethical business dealings involving foreign governments and his son Hunter. In more news, the whistleblower complaint has just been declassified. And acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire will testify before the House Intel Committee on Thursday as well. So we’ll put it all together bright and early on Friday.

    But I also listen to X22 Report every day and follow the Q postings and get great info there also.
    So in my humble opinion, Trump set the trap. the libatards bought it of course because Trump leads them around like babies with a leash. And we are watching the show being played out.
    This show will lead to a lot of eye opening evidence that otherwise might not have come to light that Trump will need in the future. So Trump is waking the people up. And that is what scares the britches off the dems. And now they have to play their hand and Trump will crush it into crumbs like he does every time. Let them eat cake.

    Thanks to you and your daughter for a fine job.
    My father in law lives in Arkansas and has meet you several times. Matter of fact, I think you know him and like me he is a huge fan of yours. BTW, love your tv show also.

    Mike...thank you for your input...I know you keep up with all the stupid Democrat nonsense. It is hard for me to believe that any informed American would let these clowns stay in office beyond 2020. For all the controversy that follows Trump around he still is the best President in our lifetime. He isn't intimidated by any of these "your messing up our comfort zone" Democrats or leftists. I'm not sure that a lot of people can live through 8 years of Trump draining the swamp but if they can they will be glad they did. I truly believe that a man of his constitution, stamina, toughness, drive and love for America may only come along once in a hundred years. He is one of a kind. There is no one else out there like him. He has exposed these Democrats for the 'pond scum' they are. Had Trump not won the 2020 election, I am not sure we would have known the depth of corruption in the FBI, The US justice department, and other areas of the government. The American people had better step up and defend this President, his policies and agenda or we won't have a country any more. Definitely not the wonderful freedoms we have enjoyed in the past. May God Bless you Mike, Donald Trump and the United States of America.

    Governor, I m attaching a copy of a Treaty Agreement signed in 1998 by then President, Bill Clinton, with Ukraine. It was for mutual assistance in criminal matters. It is safe to open, or you can look it up yourself. This needs to get to the right people. President Trump has every right to ask for assistance from Ukraine on investigating criminal matters, if in fact, that was what he was doing. https://www.congress.gov/106/cdoc/tdoc16/CDOC-106tdoc16.pdf

    What is your opinion?

    Best regards,

    The comment of “ official turned whistleblower” is spot on! The person? Who was it that told Trump if he went against the Intel Community they had six ways to Sunday to get him? Schumer. Start looking there. The Dems will not only lose the 2020 election, as is they will never be in the White House again. The voters are not happy despite MSM’s narrative.

  • Anne Turner

    09/26/2019 04:52 PM

    I do not think it was wise that Trump said that in the phone call. It can be construed to be political campaign interference if we are perfectly honest. However, in a court of law the argument coukd be made that it is okay fro a President to investigate what he believes was a blatant breach of ethics on the part of a sitting VP. There were other ways to investigate. Of course, this brings up why it was okay for Biden to blatantly be bribed for a position for his son, making huge unearned bucks, he apparently had no experience that would add value to this company. Then there was China. So the bottom line is that what is good for the goose is forbidden to the gander. Not withstanding anything else, the double standard is unconscionable. If Biden were to become Pres., I almost pity him. It would be get back time and his has plenty available.

    A good part of this charade is about fund raising. That’s why Nancy (Queen of the Swamp) made her announcement the way she did. When Schiff claimed to have info on the Russian investigation he brought in plenty of money from the Trump haters. Bet the records will show a huge bump in fund raising which the Socialist Democrats need because they are way behind the Republicans.

    You are at least partially on target. Yes, I know that isn't everything involved with this "Whistleblower" but that the DemocRATs jumped the gun, so-to-speak, by sending a letter to Ukraine. But let's have some sound background to your piece. I dug deeper than most would have done and have included it below. Yes, I'm aware that The New York Times and The Washington Post don't have that great a record on the truthfulness of what is being said. It's pretty close.

    Amid Democratic finger-pointing over allegations that President Donald Trump sought to drag Ukraine into America’s domestic politics, a letter from 2018 has emerged that shows Democrats doing exactly that.

    The letter from Sens. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, Dick Durbin of Illinois and Patrick Leahy of Vermont was cited Wednesday in a column by Marc Thiessen in The Washington Post.

    The letter was an effort to persuade Ukraine to supply information that Democrats wanted for the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016.

    The May 4, 2018, letter did not directly threaten aid to Ukraine but noted that the senators signing it were “strong advocates for a robust and close relationship with Ukraine.”

    The letter to Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko mentioned Ukraine’s progress in implementing democracy and then got to the Democrats’ concern.

    But let's go a step further they said nothing when Biden pressured the Ukraine government to remove a prosecutor from a case that was on a case that Hunter Biden was involved in. Of course, we didn't hear anything from the MSM about that MAJOR breach of protocol. The younger Biden had one person attached to the mob as an associate in his business dealings. As soon as Biden threatened to withhold aid to the Ukrainians [during the Obama Administration] which has nothing to do with Trump.

    According to Marc Thiessen, the significance of the letter, which came as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was using Trump’s conversation with Ukraine’s president regarding Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, as her tipping point for supporting a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump. “So it’s okay for Democratic senators to encourage Ukraine to investigate Trump, but it’s not okay for the president to allegedly encourage Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden?”

    “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.”

    According to a report by The New York Times, the then-vice president pushed Ukraine in 2016 to oust a prosecutor who was closing in on an energy company called Burisma Holdings, for which Hunter Biden was a board member pulling down a salary of about $50,000 a month.

    The Times report noted that in March 2016, the former vice president demanded Ukraine dismiss the prosecutor or face a loss of $1 billion in aid.

    Joe Biden, who has admitted and even boasted about urging the prosecutor be dismissed, has said there was no connection between his son’s business interests and his action.

    This deserves to be investigated thoroughly, but I doubt that the DemocRATs will have the heart to go after one of their own. It ought to be done by the DOJ.

    09/26/2019 04:13 PM

    Governor, thanks for this researched and very informational report. I enjoy reading something that I feel I can trust is the truth.

    But, how much longer are we to sit by and allow the democrats, which have no morals, run wild in their destructive and life ruining escapades in an attempt to take the country down? They are fabricators of false charges and lie about their their opponents in perpetuity. They spin the truth to make right sound wrong and visa versa. They fabricate false charges and perpetuate lies against their opponents. They destroy lives through false accusations, cause financial ruin to innocent people that they can use to get to the president.

    I know that most conservatives claim Judeo-Christian beliefs and most have morals that reflect that belief. That is one thing that has driven President Trump to stand for religious freedom. I know that as Christians we are to "turn the other cheek," and trust that God will win for us; that vengeance is mine saith the Lord. So we let the democrats, which have no morals, run wild in their destructive and life ruining escapades while attempting to take the country down.

    BUT, there is a time when followers of Christ are to take a stand. Jesus chased the money changers out of the Temple with a whip when He saw them using the house of God for illegal gain. When will republicans start fighting fire with fire. The democrats are the anti-God, anti-Christian party. Why not go for justice with charges against Hillary, Biden, and the others that are known demons. Why not aggressively label them the "party of death?" They support murdering little babies. They are the party of lawlessness, they support illegal immigration. They are the party of fabricators bringing untrue accusations against their opponents. AND, they are the boss rats in the swamp.

    We are at a point and have been for quite a while, where it is totally and completely obvious that they are not about governing and protecting the constitution. They are not about rule of law (in spite of what Nancy Pelosy says). Our nation is at a point where democrats are the "Hitlers" and we conservatives are the do-nothing-say-nothing crowd that is quickly losing everything that our fathers and forefathers fought and died to give us. What a shame!

    Governor,
    Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice. Tolerance in the face of tyranny is no virtue. Truer words were never spoken. It's high time we take these traitors down any way we possibly can. And I mean ANY WAY! Capiche? As God-fearing, law-abiding Americans we now have no choice. We are truly on the cusp of civil war in this country and it's imperative that we do everything we possibly can to save it.

    This is soooo disappointing and worrisome. This is not the Democratic party that my late Mom and Dad were part of. That is why I changed to an Independent voter. I just couldn't join the GOP because they are almost as bad (minus the corruption). Many in my family, who I respect (though it's getting harder) are blinded by this nonsense. They don't understand the long term consequences of the direction and tactics their party and media are using. Seems fitting that a Jackass is the national symbol. What really concerns me is that the population of this country may not care. I live in California and we stand around like sheep while the Demos ruin our once great state. Come Lord Jesus Come!!

    Excellent commentary Mike as always! I would like to just mentioned that possibly this new frame job is circled around the fact that in 2018 3 demonrat senators wrote a letter to Ukraine insisting they continue the Russian hoax investigation on Trump!! The tea party just released an email stating that menendez, durbin, and leahy wrote to Ukraine prosecutor general Lutsenko right at the close of 4 investigations critical to mueller’s report they wanted Ukraine to continue on the Russian hoax! They then stated that US assistance money was at stake!! They then demanded that Ukraine government answer their questions about the mueller probe! Then issued an implied threat to Ukraine!! Then of course later the mueller report was a dud indicating Ukraine did not comply to the senator’s threats! Then now a similar frame job comes against President Trump! Smells fishy to me!! Why haven’t these senators been investigated and held accountable for threatening another country!!?

    Don't you find it ironic that the Democrats were working to interfere in the 2016 and 2018 elections and were somewhat successful, and these 3 Democrat Party Senators wrote a letter to the Ukraine leadership to request they manufacture political dirt on a sitting US President (Trump), and help them out with the attempted coup?

    Can't help it if liberal folks are deniers. People need to be open to what is being presented to them and know that the Democrats are lying. Do they honestly think the Democrats are honest with their minions? They tried to get dirt on Trump via Ukraine back in May 2018 and got caught doing it. They are in panic mode.

    Here’s a copy of the letter the phony Democrats sent to Ukraine demanding an investigation into Trump. Now you tell me who is corrupt.

    Mike...thank you for your input...I know you keep up with all the stupid Democrat nonsense. It is hard for me to believe that any informed American would let these clowns stay in office beyond 2020. For all the controversy that follows Trump around he still is the best President in our lifetime. He isn't intimidated by any of these "your messing up our comfort zone" Democrats or leftists. I'm not sure that a lot of people can live through 8 years of Trump draining the swamp but if they can they will be glad they did. I truly believe that a man of his constitution, stamina, toughness, drive and love for America may only come along once in a hundred years. He is one of a kind. There is no one else out there like him. He has exposed these Democrats for the 'pond scum' they are. Had Trump not won the 2020 election, I am not sure we would have known the depth of corruption in the FBI, The US justice department, and other areas of the government. The American people had better step up and defend this President, his policies and agenda or we won't have a country any more. Definitely not the wonderful freedoms we have enjoyed in the past. May God Bless you Mike, Donald Trump and the United States of America.

    Governor, I m attaching a copy of a Treaty Agreement signed in 1998 by then President, Bill Clinton, with Ukraine. It was for mutual assistance in criminal matters. It is safe to open, or you can look it up yourself. This needs to get to the right people. President Trump has every right to ask for assistance from Ukraine on investigating criminal matters, if in fact, that was what he was doing. https://www.congress.gov/106/cdoc/tdoc16/CDOC-106tdoc16.pdf

    I do not think it was wise that Trump said that in the phone call. It can be construed to be political campaign interference if we are perfectly honest. However, in a court of law the argument coukd be made that it is okay fro a President to investigate what he believes was a blatant breach of ethics on the part of a sitting VP. There were other ways to investigate. Of course, this brings up why it was okay for Biden to blatantly be bribed for a position for his son, making huge unearned bucks, he apparently had no experience that would add value to this company. Then there was China. So the bottom line is that what is good for the goose is forbidden to the gander. Not withstanding anything else, the double standard is unconscionable. If Biden were to become Pres., I almost pity him. It would be get back time and his has plenty available.

    You are at least partially on target. Yes, I know that isn't everything involved with this "Whistleblower" but that the DemocRATs jumped the gun, so-to-speak, by sending a letter to Ukraine. But let's have some sound background to your piece. I dug deeper than most would have done and have included it below. Yes, I'm aware that The New York Times and The Washington Post don't have that great a record on the truthfulness of what is being said. It's pretty close.

    Amid Democratic finger-pointing over allegations that President Donald Trump sought to drag Ukraine into America’s domestic politics, a letter from 2018 has emerged that shows Democrats doing exactly that.

    The letter from Sens. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, Dick Durbin of Illinois and Patrick Leahy of Vermont was cited Wednesday in a column by Marc Thiessen in The Washington Post.

    The letter was an effort to persuade Ukraine to supply information that Democrats wanted for the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016.

    The May 4, 2018, letter did not directly threaten aid to Ukraine but noted that the senators signing it were “strong advocates for a robust and close relationship with Ukraine.”

    The letter to Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko mentioned Ukraine’s progress in implementing democracy and then got to the Democrats’ concern.

    But let's go a step further they said nothing when Biden pressured the Ukraine government to remove a prosecutor from a case that was on a case that Hunter Biden was involved in. Of course, we didn't hear anything from the MSM about that MAJOR breach of protocol. The younger Biden had one person attached to the mob as an associate in his business dealings. As soon as Biden threatened to withhold aid to the Ukrainians [during the Obama Administration] which has nothing to do with Trump.

    According to Marc Thiessen, the significance of the letter, which came as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was using Trump’s conversation with Ukraine’s president regarding Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, as her tipping point for supporting a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump. “So it’s okay for Democratic senators to encourage Ukraine to investigate Trump, but it’s not okay for the president to allegedly encourage Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden?”

    “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.”

    According to a report by The New York Times, the then-vice president pushed Ukraine in 2016 to oust a prosecutor who was closing in on an energy company called Burisma Holdings, for which Hunter Biden was a board member pulling down a salary of about $50,000 a month.

    The Times report noted that in March 2016, the former vice president demanded Ukraine dismiss the prosecutor or face a loss of $1 billion in aid.

    Joe Biden, who has admitted and even boasted about urging the prosecutor be dismissed, has said there was no connection between his son’s business interests and his action.

    This deserves to be investigated thoroughly, but I doubt that the DemocRATs will have the heart to go after one of their own. It ought to be done by the DOJ.

    Governor, thanks for this researched and very informational report. I enjoy reading something that I feel I can trust is the truth.

    But, how much longer are we to sit by and allow the democrats, which have no morals, run wild in their destructive and life ruining escapades in an attempt to take the country down? They are fabricators of false charges and lie about their their opponents in perpetuity. They spin the truth to make right sound wrong and visa versa. They fabricate false charges and perpetuate lies against their opponents. They destroy lives through false accusations, cause financial ruin to innocent people that they can use to get to the president.

    I know that most conservatives claim Judeo-Christian beliefs and most have morals that reflect that belief. That is one thing that has driven President Trump to stand for religious freedom. I know that as Christians we are to "turn the other cheek," and trust that God will win for us; that vengeance is mine saith the Lord. So we let the democrats, which have no morals, run wild in their destructive and life ruining escapades while attempting to take the country down.

    BUT, there is a time when followers of Christ are to take a stand. Jesus chased the money changers out of the Temple with a whip when He saw them using the house of God for illegal gain. When will republicans start fighting fire with fire. The democrats are the anti-God, anti-Christian party. Why not go for justice with charges against Hillary, Biden, and the others that are known demons. Why not aggressively label them the "party of death?" They support murdering little babies. They are the party of lawlessness, they support illegal immigration. They are the party of fabricators bringing untrue accusations against their opponents. AND, they are the boss rats in the swamp.

    We are at a point and have been for quite a while, where it is totally and completely obvious that they are not about governing and protecting the constitution. They are not about rule of law (in spite of what Nancy Pelosy says). Our nation is at a point where democrats are the "Hitlers" and we conservatives are the do-nothing-say-nothing crowd that is quickly losing everything that our fathers and forefathers fought and died to give us. What a shame!

And I mean ANY WAY! Capiche? As God-fearing, law-abiding Americans we now have no choice. We are truly on the cusp of civil war in this country and it's imperative that we do everything we possibly can to save it.

I just couldn't join the GOP because they are almost as bad (minus the corruption). Many in my family, who I respect (though it's getting harder) are blinded by this nonsense. They don't understand the long term consequences of the direction and tactics their party and media are using. Seems fitting that a Jackass is the national symbol.

    Excellent commentary Mike as always! I would like to just mentioned that possibly this new frame job is circled around the fact that in 2018 3 demonrat senators wrote a letter to Ukraine insisting they continue the Russian hoax investigation on Trump!! The tea party just released an email stating that menendez, durbin, and leahy wrote to Ukraine prosecutor general Lutsenko right at the close of 4 investigations critical to mueller’s report they wanted Ukraine to continue on the Russian hoax! They then stated that US assistance money was at stake!! They then demanded that Ukraine government answer their questions about the mueller probe! Then issued an implied threat to Ukraine!! Then of course later the mueller report was a dud indicating Ukraine did not comply to the senator’s threats! Then now a similar frame job comes against President Trump! Smells fishy to me!! Why haven’t these senators been investigated and held accountable for threatening another country!!?

    Don't you find it ironic that the Democrats were working to interfere in the 2016 and 2018 elections and were somewhat successful, and these 3 Democrat Party Senators wrote a letter to the Ukraine leadership to request they manufacture political dirt on a sitting US President (Trump), and help them out with the attempted coup?

    Can't help it if liberal folks are deniers. People need to be open to what is being presented to them and know that the Democrats are lying. Do they honestly think the Democrats are honest with their minions? They tried to get dirt on Trump via Ukraine back in May 2018 and got caught doing it. They are in panic mode.

    Here’s a copy of the letter the phony Democrats sent to Ukraine demanding an investigation into Trump. Now you tell me who is corrupt.

Anti-Trump "whistleblower" aided by "Whistleblower Aid"

Less than 5 minute read

September 26, 2019

It might not matter much now who the so-called “whistleblower” is; we know this person didn’t even hear the phone call that prompted his or her complaint. A more important question would be, who passed along such misinformation about the call, and why?

In my Wednesday commentary, I mentioned that the whistleblower’s attorney, Andrew Bakaj, had worked for Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer and had gone on to work for the CIA. We’ve got more detail today.

According to Tristan Justice at THE FEDERALIST, he has worked for both the CIA and the Pentagon and now specializes in whistleblower and security clearances in his legal practice. The managing partner at Compass Rose Legal Group, PLLC, Bakaj enjoys retweeting John Brennan and has bragged on Twitter about “running ops” to torpedo Trump nominees. For example, on September 25 of this year, he tweeted: “Thus far I’ve had a role in having a CIA IG removed and forced another one to withdraw his nomination for the position. We’ve had Congressional Intel Committee involvement – no small feat. I’m very patient and effective...This is another tactical and major salvo.”


Commentary continues below advertisement


So, who were the two IGs torpedoed by Bakaj? Well, back on May 30, he tweeted: “A big day. I’m suing DHS to release their findings about my allegations concerning David Buckley and Chris Sharpley, former CIA IG and President Trump’s nominee to be CIA IG.” Maybe these were the officials he later bragged about taking down.

It gets worse. According to Steven Nelson at the WASHINGTON EXAMINER, the whistleblower –- or more accurately, the official who claimed whistleblower status –- is also represented by veteran national security defense attorney Mark Zaid, co-founder of the organization Whistleblower Aid, which pledges free legal representation, rent (!), media coaching (!), and doctor bills and counseling to whistleblowers. Founded eight months after Trump’s inauguration (which should tell you a lot), it was launched with “an advertising blitz that included mobile billboards being driven close to the White House, Congress, the Pentagon, and all around the headquarters of the CIA and National Security Agency.” Bakaj is also a lawyer for Whistleblower Aid.

So, in effect, if you leak from Trump’s administration, they take care of you all the way. Some aspects of this, such as mortgage assistance and the like, are generally considered unethical in the legal profession, and the American Bar Association prohibits such financial support, “because,” the rules state, “to do so would encourage clients to pursue lawsuits that might not otherwise be brought and because such assistance gives lawyers too great a financial stake in the litigation.” But co-founder John Tye has said he believes what they are doing is “100 percent compliant with applicable ethics rules.”


Commentary continues below advertisement


Tye also claims Whistleblower Aid is non-partisan, but you will fall down laughing when you read what he said in 2017: “This is not a partisan effort. At the same time, the rule of law starts with the office of the President. Like many other people, we are definitely concerned about the things that are happening in the administration. The decision to fire [FBI Director] James Comey. The lack of transparency. A lot of people have questions about whether this administration respects the rule of law.”

I’ll bet a lot of people have questions about whether Whistleblower Aid is non-partisan, not to mention ethical, and how this so-called whistleblower came to be furnished with some outrageous gossip about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president. For the moment, we can only speculate. Did he or she get it from an administration insider who heard the call but who “oversold” it in an attempt to damage Trump? Or was this like the old game of “telephone” in which the recipient of the rumor doesn’t hear it quite right? Or was the information deliberately planted with this person to find out if he or she was a source of leaks?

It’s also unclear what sort of financial arrangement the whistleblower has with Zaid and Bakaj. Of course, as of yet we don’t even know who this person is. First things first.

Ukraine whistleblower’s lawyers work for group that offers to pay officials who leak against Trump

But we do know for sure that this person filed a complaint based only on hearsay, not firsthand information, accusing President Trump of calling for a “quid pro quo” during a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky in mid-July. (Zelensky, in a Wednesday press conference with President Trump, said he had not felt pressured.) For some reason, Intelligence IG Michael Atkinson decided this complaint, even with its total lack of evidence, was “urgent” and “credible” enough to brief congressional committees behind closed doors earlier this week, but cooler heads prevailed at the Department of National Intelligence and they did not immediately release the transcript to Congress, who responded with much gnashing of teeth and scenery-clawing.

Of course, you know the rest: The Democrats decided the content of the transcript didn’t even matter, and Nancy Pelosi, without taking a vote, announced an impeachment “inquiry” that Jerrold Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee was already conducting anyway. Her announcement really didn’t mean ANYTHING, but it was done to create drama and make people think they were getting closer to actual impeachment, and also to feed the 24-hour news beast.

And they did this the day before they knew Trump would be releasing the transcript. That gave them 24 more full hours of drama.


Commentary continues below advertisement


I told you on Tuesday that this might play out like the old “Br’er Rabbit” story in which Br’er Rabbit begs and pleads with Br’er Fox to do anything he wanted with him but please, PLEASE not to throw him in the briar patch! The pain and suffering would be too great to bear! So then, Br’er Fox, being mean and stupid, throws Br’er Rabbit in the briar patch, which is just what Br’er Rabbit wants him to do because he easily slides through the briars and gets away.

Sure enough, that’s what happened. Democrats in Congress, being mean and, let’s face it, pretty dumb (think AOC), did what they thought Trump DIDN’T want them to do: they insisted on getting hold of that transcript. But when they got it, the call turned out to be not nearly as bad as it was supposed to be, and Trump slipped through their fingers again. If that weren’t enough, there were also references in the transcript to things Democrats don’t want to be talking about AT ALL.

I’m referring to the DNC “Russian” hack and also, of course, Joe Biden. On Thursday, John Solomon will be breaking huge news concerning mountains of new evidence of Biden’s unethical business dealings involving foreign governments and his son Hunter. In more news, the whistleblower complaint has just been declassified. And acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire will testify before the House Intel Committee on Thursday as well. So we’ll put it all together bright and early on Friday.

    The May 4, 2018, letter did not directly threaten aid to Ukraine but noted that the senators signing it were “strong advocates for a robust and close relationship with Ukraine.”

    The letter to Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko mentioned Ukraine’s progress in implementing democracy and then got to the Democrats’ concern.

    But let's go a step further they said nothing when Biden pressured the Ukraine government to remove a prosecutor from a case that was on a case that Hunter Biden was involved in. Of course, we didn't hear anything from the MSM about that MAJOR breach of protocol. The younger Biden had one person attached to the mob as an associate in his business dealings. As soon as Biden threatened to withhold aid to the Ukrainians [during the Obama Administration] which has nothing to do with Trump.

    According to Marc Thiessen, the significance of the letter, which came as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was using Trump’s conversation with Ukraine’s president regarding Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, as her tipping point for supporting a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump. “So it’s okay for Democratic senators to encourage Ukraine to investigate Trump, but it’s not okay for the president to allegedly encourage Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden?”

    “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.”

    According to a report by The New York Times, the then-vice president pushed Ukraine in 2016 to oust a prosecutor who was closing in on an energy company called Burisma Holdings, for which Hunter Biden was a board member pulling down a salary of about $50,000 a month.

    The Times report noted that in March 2016, the former vice president demanded Ukraine dismiss the prosecutor or face a loss of $1 billion in aid.

    Joe Biden, who has admitted and even boasted about urging the prosecutor be dismissed, has said there was no connection between his son’s business interests and his action.

    This deserves to be investigated thoroughly, but I doubt that the DemocRATs will have the heart to go after one of their own. It ought to be done by the DOJ.

    Governor, thanks for this researched and very informational report. I enjoy reading something that I feel I can trust is the truth.

    But, how much longer are we to sit by and allow the democrats, which have no morals, run wild in their destructive and life ruining escapades in an attempt to take the country down? They are fabricators of false charges and lie about their their opponents in perpetuity. They spin the truth to make right sound wrong and visa versa. They fabricate false charges and perpetuate lies against their opponents. They destroy lives through false accusations, cause financial ruin to innocent people that they can use to get to the president.

    I know that most conservatives claim Judeo-Christian beliefs and most have morals that reflect that belief. That is one thing that has driven President Trump to stand for religious freedom. I know that as Christians we are to "turn the other cheek," and trust that God will win for us; that vengeance is mine saith the Lord. So we let the democrats, which have no morals, run wild in their destructive and life ruining escapades while attempting to take the country down.

    BUT, there is a time when followers of Christ are to take a stand. Jesus chased the money changers out of the Temple with a whip when He saw them using the house of God for illegal gain. When will republicans start fighting fire with fire. The democrats are the anti-God, anti-Christian party. Why not go for justice with charges against Hillary, Biden, and the others that are known demons. Why not aggressively label them the "party of death?" They support murdering little babies. They are the party of lawlessness, they support illegal immigration. They are the party of fabricators bringing untrue accusations against their opponents. AND, they are the boss rats in the swamp.

    We are at a point and have been for quite a while, where it is totally and completely obvious that they are not about governing and protecting the constitution. They are not about rule of law (in spite of what Nancy Pelosy says). Our nation is at a point where democrats are the "Hitlers" and we conservatives are the do-nothing-say-nothing crowd that is quickly losing everything that our fathers and forefathers fought and died to give us. What a shame!

    Governor,
    Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice. Tolerance in the face of tyranny is no virtue. Truer words were never spoken. It's high time we take these traitors down any way we possibly can. And I mean ANY WAY! Capiche? As God-fearing, law-abiding Americans we now have no choice. We are truly on the cusp of civil war in this country and it's imperative that we do everything we possibly can to save it.

    This is soooo disappointing and worrisome. This is not the Democratic party that my late Mom and Dad were part of. That is why I changed to an Independent voter. I just couldn't join the GOP because they are almost as bad (minus the corruption). Many in my family, who I respect (though it's getting harder) are blinded by this nonsense. They don't understand the long term consequences of the direction and tactics their party and media are using. Seems fitting that a Jackass is the national symbol. What really concerns me is that the population of this country may not care. I live in California and we stand around like sheep while the Demos ruin our once great state. Come Lord Jesus Come!!

    Praying for our President and his family and his staff. It is not a coincidence that every time they look for something to get Trump more nasty comes out about his opponents. God s timing and TRUTH. AMEN Praying for His protection and yours too sir. The other side has some very vicious mean cruel desperate people who really want to shut you up and everyone who opposes them. God bless you for your determination and courageous words to speak the truth. Prayers

    Excellent commentary Mike as always! I would like to just mentioned that possibly this new frame job is circled around the fact that in 2018 3 demonrat senators wrote a letter to Ukraine insisting they continue the Russian hoax investigation on Trump!! The tea party just released an email stating that menendez, durbin, and leahy wrote to Ukraine prosecutor general Lutsenko right at the close of 4 investigations critical to mueller’s report they wanted Ukraine to continue on the Russian hoax! They then stated that US assistance money was at stake!! They then demanded that Ukraine government answer their questions about the mueller probe! Then issued an implied threat to Ukraine!! Then of course later the mueller report was a dud indicating Ukraine did not comply to the senator’s threats! Then now a similar frame job comes against President Trump! Smells fishy to me!! Why haven’t these senators been investigated and held accountable for threatening another country!!?

    Don't you find it ironic that the Democrats were working to interfere in the 2016 and 2018 elections and were somewhat successful, and these 3 Democrat Party Senators wrote a letter to the Ukraine leadership to request they manufacture political dirt on a sitting US President (Trump), and help them out with the attempted coup?

    Can't help it if liberal folks are deniers. People need to be open to what is being presented to them and know that the Democrats are lying. Do they honestly think the Democrats are honest with their minions? They tried to get dirt on Trump via Ukraine back in May 2018 and got caught doing it. They are in panic mode.

    Here’s a copy of the letter the phony Democrats sent to Ukraine demanding an investigation into Trump. Now you tell me who is corrupt.

    I know that God will save this country from these ungodly people.

LOts of American know how they got elected, & what their long term goals are.We have look for people in Congress that do not appreciate President Trump, and send them home,because they are not for The United States of America!
