In recent days, there’s been a lot of hay made in the Fake News about an unidentified government whistleblower filing a complaint with the Inspector General that President Trump phoned the current Ukrainian President on July 25th to ask his government to investigate the business dealings of Hunter Biden in Ukraine while his father, then-Vice President Biden was overseeing America’s Ukraine policy.
The Fake News went into paroxysms over this, with the Washington Post calling it “Trump’s Ukraine-gate Extortion”. Nancy Pelosi claimed that the phone call was a “threat to National Security” and Hillary Clinton tweeted, “The president asked a foreign power to help him win an election…Again.”
Rewind to 2014, Burisma was being investigated for corruption by British and Ukrainian officials when Hunter Biden was placed on Burisma’s Board of Directors, despite his having no experience in that industry. Burisma paid Hunter Biden $83,333 per month to hire Obama crony lawyers and crisis managers to advise them on how to get the case dropped.
Joe Biden is actually on video at the Council on Foreign Relations bragging about how he threatened to withhold a $1 billion loan to the Ukrainian government if the prosecutor investigating the Burisma case wasn’t fired.
The prosecutor was duly fired that very day and the following week, the case against Hunter Biden and George Soros at Burisma was dropped. Hunter Biden was paid a total of almost $3 million before he resigned from Burisma earlier this year.
So, who’s the corrupt party here?
George Webb shares his best guess as to the identity of this whistleblower, who he believes is Sue Gordon, a swamp creature if there ever was one, as Webb details with her bio here. Gordon was the Deputy Director of National Intelligence under Dan Coats who Trump passed over to replace him when he resigned last August.
Within 24 hours after this story broke, it was partially walked back when CNN reported that an official who was briefed on the matter stated the whistleblower “didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications.” Presumably, this was to eliminate any suspicion that Sue Gordon was the source, as she would have had access to the NSA records of the phone call.
The whistleblower complaint may have been as much about harassing Trump as it was about eliminating Biden. On Sunday morning, House Intelligence Committee Co-Chair Devin Nunes opined that Joe Biden’s campaign would likely soon come to an end due to the resurfacing of the Burisma story, which he said “first originated back when Hillary Clinton was trying to make sure Biden didn’t get in the race.”
