Just when you thought the Democrat impeachment circus couldn’t get any more absurd, it does.
It is now being reported that the “whistleblower” who still has not been identified, has professional ties to one of the Democrats running for president in 2020.
What a shock.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Whistleblower had ‘professional’ tie to 2020 Democratic candidate
In an Aug. 26 letter, the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, wrote that the anonymous whistleblower who set off the Trump-Ukraine impeachment fight showed “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate.”
A few weeks later, news reports said the whistleblower’s possible bias was that he is a registered Democrat. That was all. Incredulous commentary suggested that Republicans who were pushing the bias talking point were so blinded by their own partisanship that they saw simple registration with the Democratic Party as evidence of wrongdoing.
“Give me a break!” tweeted whistleblower lawyer Mark Zaid. “Bias? Seriously?”
Now, however, there is word of more evidence of possible bias on the whistleblower’s part. Under questioning from Republicans during last Friday’s impeachment inquiry interview with Atkinson, the inspector general revealed that the whistleblower’s possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat. It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year’s election.
“The IG said [the whistleblower] worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates,” said one person with knowledge of what was said.
“The IG said the whistleblower had a professional relationship with one of the 2020 candidates,” said another person with knowledge of what was said.

Anti-Trump Whistleblower Wrote ‘Dramatic’ Memo After Ukraine Call; Has Ties to 2020 Dem Candidate
The anti-Trump “whistleblower” is a registered Democrat who reportedly has a significant tie to one of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. Also, according to Fox News, he wrote a “dramatic” but inaccurate two-page memo on July 26, the day after the Trump-Zelensky phone call.
Immediately following his chat with an unidentified White House official about President Trump’s telephone with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky,” the so-called IC whistleblower wrote what Fox News described as a “dramatic personal memo,” alleging that the White House official characterized the call as “crazy” and “frightening.”
Let’s be clear about what is really happening here.
The Mueller investigation was a complete failure, so Democrats have invented a new conspiracy.
When this one fails, they’ll simply come up with something else.
