New Whistleblowe is Intelligence Official, but with 1 Alleged Difference

Published

on

The controversy surrounding President Donald Trump’s phone call in July with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky took another twist on Sunday morning when a second reported whistleblower emerged.

According to The Associated Press, the new whistleblower has reportedly spoken to the intelligence community’s internal watchdog and “has information that backs the original whistleblower’s complaint.”

However, lawyer Mark Zaid, who represents both whistleblowers, told the AP that the second individual hasn’t filed an official complaint with the inspector general.

The second whistleblower has “firsthand knowledge that supported” the original whistleblower, the AP reported.

Of note, like the first, the second whistleblower is reportedly also an intelligence official, according to the AP.

Zaid also spoke to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.

In response to Stephanopoulos’ tweet, Andrew P. Bakaj, managing partner of the firm working with the whistleblowers, confirmed the various reports.

“I can confirm that my firm and my team represent multiple whistleblowers in connection to the underlying August 12, 2019, disclosure to the Intelligence Community Inspector General. No further comment at this time,” Bakaj wrote.

Interestingly, Bakaj wrote that there were “multiple” whistleblowers. While two certainly counts as “multiple,” Bakaj’s wording leaves the door ajar for more potential whistleblowers.

The New York Times had also reported on the potential existence of a second whistleblower on Friday. However, ABC News reported that Zaid is unsure if the second whistleblower he represents is the same one mentioned by the Times.

Trump responded to word about the new reported whistleblower on Twitter.

“The first so-called second hand information ‘Whistleblower’ got my phone conversation almost completely wrong, so now word is they are going to the bench and another ‘Whistleblower’ is coming in from the Deep State, also with second hand info. Meet with Shifty,” Trump wrote, alluding to Rep. Adam Schiff, the California Democrat who chairs the House Intelligence Committee.

“Keep them coming!” Trump added.

The new whistleblower information comes amid a contentious period in Washington after the first complaint was filed August 12. Controversy over the credibility of the first whistleblower wasn’t enough to dissuade House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from declaring an  “inquiry” into impeachment proceedings against the president.

    And if necessary, they could probably find 4 or 5 more. This so reeks of Kavanaugh. Will they ever give up and admit President Trump won the election in 2016.

    • WC says:

      They’ll never give up. Like children having a f*****g 3 years long tantrum because the evil demonRATS wicked witch didn’t win in 2016.

      • Nikki Smith says:

        Exactly… only these are mentally ill adults turned Nazzis!!! We really should prepare for civil war just in case they start one. They will lie and murder or whatever it takes to get vontrol of our government so they can keep hiding all their terrible crimes while under OBAMA’S REIGN OF TERROR!!!

    • Robert says:

      No they will never give in, they are wanting their own way, and to break the American People so bad, and Donald trump that they will say and do anything to get it done! It will all come back on them though in the end, and when it does, there will be a lot of people them! That will end up in very very bad Controversy, it will bite them in the back so bad they will want to leave the United States forever, or face Prison time!

      • jimmie boswell says:

        well they, have already embarrassed themselves by being committed to ignorance and stupidity. since stupidity and ignorance in motion tends to stay in imbecile motion.

  • Arlene says:

    Who cares? Oh, yes, democRATS. That is all that they do for a living – try to get 2016 overturned. Fools, all of them.

  • john byrne says:

    the second was not a whistleblower, he was a peddler of hearsay gossip. the first stealer of information is a traitor.

    • Jamie says:

      Now that the REAL transcript is out, it will be spun continuously, hoping someone will eventually bite. All this spinning is making us dizzy.

  • Sandy Miller says:

    The Intelligence Community has turned rogue and corrupt. They had plenty to get on Obama and never once did so.

    • Antiglblst says:

      They are COMMUNIST TRAITORS.

      • Kathy Smith says:

        Even using the Hitler Nazzi handbook to go after Trump and Americans!!! It’s scarey.. and too bad people aren’t understanding what is happening with Dems to our country!! WAKE UP ALL AMERICANS!!!. DEM VOTERS ARE AS SCREWED AS WE ON THE RT IF DEMS GET CONTROL. FIGURE IT OUT. THEY DONT HIVE S DAMN ABOUT THEIR VOTERS.

    • Jamie says:

      Brennan’s holdovers need to go…to the gallows.

    • Kathy Smith says:

      They should have gone after Hillary as a mass murderer but they didn’t. And Obama as a traitor to our country . But no. He should not have even been able to run for pres. !! He lied about everything in his life. I saw the birth certificate his brother put up for a few min. Before Obama’s people made it disappear. I’m surprised his brother didnt “commit suicide” as Hillary calls it. But who knows. And what about all those who are involved in the child sex slave trade??? No one has gone down for the Congress members involved!! This “club” steals peoples children and rapes them and trades them. Some start at 6 yrs old. Maybe now you know why Congress DEMS are trying so hard to get rid of TRUMP.

  • Antiglblst says:

    Now just see if this lawyer and firm have ties to the Clinton’s, Soros or Brennen. You know the ones about to be exposed for the various coup attemps on Trump.

    • Guest says:

      I believe I heard the other day that the lawyer is indeed tied to Clinton!

      • Jamie says:

        You are correct. Hand picked by Lying Sack Of Schiff. (Jeanine). Just like CBF’s lawyer was picked by Feinstein. There are far more similarities with the Kavanaugh Coup than there are between Trump’s Transcript and the fake WB report. And then there’s the Russian Witch Hunt. Dems need new material. The sequels suck.

    • neo says:

      I think he has represented Killery and Chuckle Head Schumer

  • Laura says:

    This people are all Obama hold overs, don’t worry Barr and Durham are going to task them to death. The whole thing with this whistle blower is because Dems know Barr and IG are coming after all of them. Including Mr Schiff NYT nuts which is on tape spying on a Trump during election. Why is it Trumps in trouble when we have the facts that is what Democrats did. Democrats accuse a Republicans of everything they have been doing. DRAI THE DAMN SWAMP before this country is taken down by an illegitimate President Barack Obama. That guy is the devil and Democrats are to stupid to know that he pulled the rug over there eyes. The American people with half a brain know it. We are coming after all of you either at the ballot or cival war

  • Orlene says:

    This is all ridiculous where were all the whistleblowers when Obama took or taxpayers money put on Pallets and gave it to Iran , nobody said a word , God is watching and He knows the democrats will reap what they sow !!!!!!!!

    • neo says:

      They were all arkansided or pronounced “racist” by the media.

    • Kathy Smith says:

      “WE THE PEOPLE” NEED TO BE ABLE TO GO AFTER THE DEMS IN CONGRESS. EVEN THEIR OWN VOTERS ARE SICK OF THEIR CONSTANT HARRASSMENT OF THE PRESIDENT!! CAN’T WE TAKE THEM TO COURT??? SERIOUSLY!! “WE THE PEOPLE” NEED TO STEP UP!!!

  • Bob Casper says:

    we need to stop this crap. If the whistleblower does not have firm information they need to be immediately stopped. And I do not believe any news of a whistleblower should be able to be released until the information has been confirmed.

    This just get everyone up in arms and for no good reason…. These people have real facts with real truth about what the President has done that is a crime. Most of what the President has done or does, has a very large latitude. After he is the chief executive of the United States of America.

    I believe all of this needs to be put on hold and in less then 18 months the elections will occur and if the nation really wants to have another president they can vote one in.

    I really believe that the democrats understand that they have very little chance to win the 2020 elections. Nobody wants to turn this country into a socialist country. Likewise I do not believe that people want to rely on wind mills and solar to power the country. After all electric cars need to be charge by some thing and today they are charged by oil, natural gas, and cool… I do not believe that solar or wind is going to cut it. Not to mention long range trips are not in the card…. We also need to under stand how airliners are going to fly without gas????

    This is only one of the many socialistic issues that Americans are not going to swallow in 2020. So impeaching President Trump would not change this fact!!!

    I what then are they going to impeach Vice President Pence about???

    This non-sense needs to stop. I believe this is a last ditch effort to throw off the country as the IG, and AG Barr are going to turn the democrats upside down in the next couple of months. And when all of this comes out. The 2020 election debate is going to be a think of the past and we are going to be able to sail through this entire election unscathed.

    My real concern is that we need to regain control of the House, win the While House for another term, and add to the Senate to create a super majority of 60 plus senators in congress….

    Then we could start to pay down the debt, correct the border situation, finish putting in constitutional judges, and figure out the best way change our gun laws so that lawful people can continue to carry and people that who should not have guns are properly prevented from owning them.

    However, let me be perfectly clear. Criminals will never pass gun checks and they will always get their guns in the black market and this will never go away. That is why law abiding citizens need to continue to have the right to have concealed weapons at all times as long as they have been trained and have pass all of the security check points.

    As for schools and places where criminals think that there are easy targets we need to have concealed weapon law enforcement individuals that are there at all times to protect the innocent. Once these lunatics understand they are not the only ones with guns they will stop carrying out these atrocities. Once they know they are out number their cowardice actions will stop, because they know they will be looking a barrel of a gun staring them in the face and will look for an easier target. Which we should always be one step a head of them!!!

    • neo says:

      The phone call was about the 2016 ELECTION and the part the Ukraine played in the origination or the Fake Russian Collusion by Obozo/Killery/DNC and others (reason Cloud Strike was mentioned….the company who investigated the DNC hacker hoax)….they are accusing Trump of doing what they did in 2016…NOW you see why they don’t want it to be investigated?…Even John Brennan acquired a fake passport to travel to Ukraine….why would he do that????

  • Red Devil 5th Inf. Div. VN. says:

    It’s troubling to me that the CIA is spying on the president, this is reminiscent of Russias KGB, this should not be happening.

  • War Dog says:

    The fact that the Liberals have suddenly found another “Whistleblower” Traitor is Solid Proof that the Left, along with the Mainstream Media, are attempting a Soft Coup d’état on President Trump!!! Make Public the Names and Political Affiliations of these Traitors. Expose every Politician for the Traitors they are. Start the Military Tribunals!!!

    The Democratic Party has evolved into nothing more than a Criminal Organization lead by the Obama/Clinton Cartel, funded by George Soros and the Clinton Foundation and utilizing the Mainstream Media as their personal Ministers of Propaganda and Misinformation!!! Definitely grounds for a RICO Indictment!!

    Soft coup is a term used to describe a coup d’état without the use of violence but, based on a conspiracy or plot that has as its objective the taking of the State power by partially or wholly illegal means, in order to operate an exchange of political leadership – and in some cases also of the current institutional order.

  • Dolores Herrmann says:

    This is all happening because Trump said he was going to drain the swamp. All the “yea” idiots for impeachment are the swamp people and that is the reason they have to keep coming up with “crimes”. They want to keep filling their pockets with money no matter where it comes from like the Clintons did and still are doing. God bless Trump and the Right.

  • Greg Mikulka says:

    They know they have nothing regardless of how many “witnesses” they pay off, I mean find, I mean that voluntarily come forward…it’s the only way to keep the circus going without taking an impeachment vote which would jeopardize every democrat on the ballot for re-election…

  • neo says:

    Bakaj….ain’t he the lawyer that represented the Killintons and Chuckle Head Schumer in the past….mmmm…no conflict of interest here ….HUH

  • Amanda McGee says:

    Soooo, after all this time…they THINK they’ve FINALLY found their “gotcha” moment! ”They” say they won the popular vote and that’s what matters…but think about this…the population of LA is approximately 4 million people….It’s been said that Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million people. That means she won, by, 1 million votes LESS, than the population of ONE city in the ENTIRE United States. what a buncha BS!! Trump won fair and square, he’s our President, so deal with it!

    • JD says:

      With all the voter fraud, and there’s plenty of it documented, I really think she didn’t win the popular vote either. She couldn’t attract flies at a rally.

    • Kathy Smith says:

      Sadly Hillary. they found you had 2 million dead voters!!! WHY HASN’T ANYONE IN HILLARY’S ELECTION GROUP GONE TO PRISON YET FOR ALL THEIR CHEATING?? THATS THE READON GOD HAD ENOUGH OF DEMS TOO. AND MADE SURE TRUMP EVEN THOUGH HILLARYS WIN WAS ALL PAID FOR IN ADVANCE. AND HE KNEW THEY TURNED ON THE JEWS AND ISRAEL. DUMB MOVE DEMS. NOW GOD IS GOING TO NAIL ALL OF YOU WITH GREAT GODLY KARMA!!! AMEN!!!

  • Stella says:

    No matter What The Democrats Says. This Long Ago Democrat voted for President Trump and will again in 2020. I had enough of The Clintons after Eight Years in The White House. I started voting Republican after The Clinton’s Eight Years and Hope to never see a Democrat in office again.

  • Marnie says:

    Let the demtards keep going. These chumps in Congress should be arrested for sedition. They are going against the people and the constitution. Their failures will play right into Trumps favor.

  • Errol musk says:

    No let them go on with their nonsense.
    A failed impeachment will allow Donald trump to run three times.
    His fist term will be considered void.
    His next election will be considered his first election.

  • John Bowan says:

    Hey you libtarded or leftarded demorat’s, give it up already you are getting no where fast

  • Goodforall says:

    Shades of the Kavanaugh confirmation! If the first doesnt work throw a second out there, and then probably another. Trump has done nothing wrong! I hope this completely blows up in the libtards faces in the 2020 election!

  • Dan says:

    So what if they have another whistle-blower? We have the transcript. It tells us everything we need to know about the phone call, and tells us a lot more about these paid informants sponsored by the Clowns In America and the DNC.

  • Stephen Russell says:

    From where do these whistleblowers come, why now, & not earlier?
    Whose organizing this “convention”?
    Do stories match or No?
    Bad optics Dems & U Lose.
    Purge CIA or more blower clowns show up

  • James says:

    Some, such as Rep. Mark Walker (D-NC), viewed Bakaj’s past work with Clinton and Schumer as a red flag.

    “Let me get this straight: the whistleblower (leaker) had no firsthand knowledge of the call and was just spreading a rumor?” he asked Tuesday.

    “And now is being represented by an attorney who had to leave the CIA after a ‘whistleblower’ incident and has the names Schumer and Clinton on his resumé?” he continued.

    “This seems about as reputable as the DNC-funded dossier or the latest Kavanaugh propaganda,” he added….what more can be said about all the demwits

  • Brenda Choate says:

    Unless both these “whistleblowers” were in the room, they only have rumor. Not being in the room indicates that both “intelligence agents” were somehow gaining knowledge covertly, i.e. surveillance by FBI, CIA, or some other spy agency.

    • Bluewren says:

      Harking back to the Kavanaugh debacle, isn’t it time Blazey Ford was investigated more thoroughly as her lawyer has said she did it for political reasons and it might be worth following up that she is related to a high up official in the CIA.

  • Bella says:

    Call it for what it really is, it’s a one sided democrat political impeachment. They care not about the constitution or democracy. By pulling the VP in this they’ve shown their cards, kill two birds with one stone so Pelosi will become President. While doing so, go after Judge Kavanaugh to undo the 2016 election. I changed parties in 2016 because of the corruption in the democratic party and for pulling stunts like this.

  • NIKKI SMITH says:

    So the #2 wants to comfirm the terrible lies Schiff told the world!!!??? They are really hurtin’ to have a civil war arent they with their attempted coup????!!!!

  • joe says:

    jail these fools

  • jimmie boswell says:

    well the fact that it, supports the first whistle-blowers conjecture is a red flag. since the actual transcript, supports neither make-believe alleged complaints.

    as it only exposes the intelligence communities, espionage conspiracy against an honest and legal sitting president. when the complaints, appear to be unintelligent stupidity.

    no wonder our intelligence organizations can’t do their job when this kind of conspiracy of partisan ignorance and stupidity prevails.

    imbeciles throwing their own selves, under the bus. which appears to be coordinated by the partisan cia and/or fib espionage.

  • Gizzy says:

    I don’t care how many whistleblowers they find! It’s all a scam to take down a lawfully elected President! the whole of the democrat party involved in this should be removed from office. They aren’t doing a thing but looking for POWER!

  • G says:

    This whole process is a dog and pony show, let the pitiful Dems keep it up….it keeps them away from ruining the real issues that mean so much to the American people…. the American people are smart and know who is/are looking out for us… the truth always prevails….

  • Kevin says:

    So the new so called “whistleblower” its going confirm the original made up statements?

  • Bluewren says:

    Don’t you just love these Dem’s lawyers the way they get photographed in front of a bookcase of books wearing hornrimmed glasses and looking fiercely eagle-eyed trying to look formidably intelligent? While defending indefensible rubbish, oh yes shades of Kavanaugh alright this time let’s get ’em good!

  • george peters says:

    sure, sure, lie like hell and i will back you up, said every demon-rat minion.

  • george peters says:

    HAHA, FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE OF A CALL THAT WAS NEVER HEARD, ONLY WHISPERINGS FROM SOMEONE ELSE. GIVE ME A DAMN BREAK WILL YOU.MESSAGE TO TRUMP, START GETTING THESE IDIOTS OUT OF D.C., EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO USE THE CLINTON’S HIT MEN.
