House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will officially begin an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump over a phone call the president had with the Ukrainian President-elect back in July.
Hours after Pelosi’s announcement, a bombshell report dropped on Fox News that the alleged “whistleblower” who filed a complaint against Trump is biased against him.
During a segment on Fox News with host Sean Hannity, network contributor Ed Henry reported that the Office of Intelligence Community Inspector General found that the “whistleblower” had a “political bias” in favor of one of Trump’s rivals in the 2020 presidential election.
Democrats allege Trump is violating the law by refusing to hand over the IG report to Congress, which is why Pelosi claims Democrats will begin an impeachment inquiry.
But it turns out that this “whistleblower” — which Democrats are placing all of their faith in — has a clear bias against Trump and supports a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
And, Trump has agreed to hand over the IG report to Congress. It has not been seen by anyone in Congress, meaning Henry’s report that the whistleblower essentially hates Trump was leaked late on Tuesday night.
It is not clear why the administration had withheld the report, though the White House announced Tuesday that it will release the report Wednesday, along with the transcript of Trump’s conversation with the new president of Ukraine.
Henry, citing a “senior official” with first-hand knowledge of the inspector general’s report, said that the anonymous “whistleblower” — who did not hear Trump’s conversation directly — was biased in favor of one of Trump’s 2020 opponents, though the official did not say which one.
Henry also said the official had told him that there would be no “smoking gun” in the transcript of Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — even though there would be “at least a few words” in it that would cause unspecified problems for the White House.
Hannity added that his sources had also told him that Trump and Zelensky had only briefly discussed the aborted investigation into a company on whose board Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, had served. Biden boasted last year that he had forced the Ukrainian prosecutor out by threatening to withhold $1 billion in aid.
The media has been going ballistic over a phone call Trump had with the Ukrainian president several months ago, where POTUS reportedly asked the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over shady business dealings with a Ukrainian gas company.
Here’s the cherry on top: the whistleblower who filed the complaint did not even hear the phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president.
That’s right — this so-called whistleblower filed a complaint about a call that they never heard, and Democrats are demanding Trump be impeached over a call that they also never heard.
This has also led to extreme calls from Republicans to investigate the scandal involving Biden and Ukraine.
Essentially, the allegations are that Hunter allegedly profited financially from his father’s time as vice president.
The details emerged as the Ukrainian government recently reopened an investigation into a company which once paid Hunter Biden roughly $50,000 a month.
That company, Burisma Holdings, is being probed by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
Joe Biden allegedly pressured and tried to intimidate the Ukrainian government to remove the prosecutor from the case, and his plan actually worked.
Biden, who was still serving as the vice president, went to Kiev in March 2016 and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”
Biden’s plan worked, and the Ukrainian Parliament removed Lutsenko as the prosecutor on the case.
However, it looks like Hunter Biden still benefited significantly from his father’s actions.
If Biden used his power as VP to pressure Ukraine into removing the prosecutor who was investigating a shady deal involving his son, that would be catastrophic and maybe even illegal.
