IG Says Trump-Ukraine Whistleblower Had ‘Bias’ In Favor Of ‘Rival Candidate’; Retains Clinton, Schumer Attorney

The Trump administration is set to release a document from the intelligence community inspector general which concluded that the whistleblower behind the explosive allegations against President Trump had ‘political bias’ in favor of ‘a rival candidate’ for US president, according to Fox News, citing a senior Trump administration official.

What’s more, the whistleblower has retained attorney Andrew Bakaj – who “interned for Schumer in the spring of 2001 and for Clinton in the fall of the same year,” per The Federalist.

Meanwhile, the White House has also been working as fast as possible to release the whistleblower’s complaint involving phone conversations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Congress, “as long as it’s legally possible.”

The news came just hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi initiated a formal impeachment inquiry by alleging that the administration was hiding the complaint.

The senior administration official told Fox News that the White House had nothing to hide, that there has been no wrongdoing, and that the White House’s general position has been that it will make everything possible available to Congress or the public regarding Trump’s conversations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and the complaint to the intelligence community’s inspector general.

source familiar with the matter told Fox News this week that the whistleblower had no firsthand knowledge of Trump’s July call with Zelensky. Trump vowed earlier Tuesday to release a “complete” transcript of the call by Wednesday. –Fox News
