Is the so-called “whistleblower” – you know, that principled young man who was nice enough to advise us of the high crimes and misdemeanors of President Trump – actually an unprincipled scam artist who is trying to illegally get rich off of the second-hand information he passed along to Democrats, eager to get anything at all on Donald Trump no matter how thin it was?
Before answering, please read the following excerpt from Gregg Re’s article at Fox News:
EXCLUSIVE: A newly filed complaint to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) alleges that the whistleblower whose allegations touched off House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry may have violated federal law by indirectly soliciting more than a quarter-million dollars from mostly anonymous sources via a GoFundMe page.
The complaint, which was filed last week and obtained by Fox News, alleged the donations from roughly 6,000 individuals “clearly constitute” gifts to a current intelligence official that may be restricted because of the employee’s official position pursuant to 5 CFR 2635.203 and other statutes. To date, the GoFundMe has raised over $227,000.
The complaint also raised the possibility that some of the donations may have come from prohibited sources, and asked the ICIG to look into whether any “foreign citizen or agent of a foreign government” contributed.
Wow. Say it aint so, Eric.
We obviously will keep on this as it develops.
Meanwhile, NOW can we have Eric Ciaramella, the anti-Trump, Biden operative, pretending to be a “whistleblower”, in front of the House Intelligence Committee to testify?
Or are we still supposed to take adam schiff’s word for it that he is pure as the driven snow?
