Ever since a so-called whistleblower filed a complaint against President Donald Trump, everyone in Washington, D.C., is trying to get to the bottom of the story.
Who filed the report that set off the Democrats’ impeachment firestorm? Is this person reliable? What do we know about this person’s true motivations?
While we still do not know who the individuals identity, a bombshell report dropped this week that discredits the whistleblower and vindicates the president.
Fox News obtained exclusive documents about the memo the whistleblower wrote after learning about Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The complaint was filed in August, but the actual phone call between Trump and Zelensky took place in July.
Immediately after learning second-hand information from a White House official about Trump’s July 25 phone call with the president of Ukraine, the whistleblower wrote a dramatic personal memo, saying the White House official characterized the call as “crazy” and “frightening,” Fox News has learned.
In the two-page, single-spaced memo on July 26, the day after the Trump-Zelensky phone call, the whistleblower wrote that the conversation with the unnamed White House official “only lasted a few minutes, and as a result, I only received highlights.”
There’s the bombshell: the whistleblower admitted in their own memo that they “only received highlights” of the call from another person.
It gets even better.
The emergence of the whistleblower’s memo came as sources told Fox News that Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, in testimony to House lawmakers, could not explain what accounted for the 18-day window between the July 25 call and the whistleblower’s Aug. 12 complaint filing — or when exactly the whistleblower contacted a key Democrat’s staff.
In those 18-days between the Trump-Zelensky call and when the official complaint was filed, the “whistleblower” spoke directly with Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff’s staff about the call, complaint, and how to move forward.
They literally met with Schiff’s team — arguably the most anti-Trump liberal in Congress — before filing this bogus complaint against Trump.
And there are several other major issues at hand.
In recent weeks, we have learned that the whistleblower is a male CIA agent.
The whistleblower filed a complaint alleging that Trump directly asked Zelensky to turn over DNC servers to his administration — but no such request appears in the transcript of the July 25 phone call.
Furthermore, the complaint also claims (1) Trump suggested Zelensky keep his current prosecutor and (2) that a State Department official was on the call between the two leaders.
Newly released reports and information show that both of those claims are also false.
The whistleblower filed a complaint about a call that they never heard, and Democrats want Trump impeached over a call that they also never heard.
But wait, it gets even better.
After an internal investigation, 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.
Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge also reported that the so-called whistleblower told the ICIG they had first-hand knowledge — but they wrote in the complaint that they had no first-hand knowledge.

Whistleblower Protection protocols require “first-hand knowledge” when filing a complaint. This person was not even present for the phone call and got secondhand information about what was allegedly said.
The whistleblower is lying on so many levels.
With all of this considered, Democrats are still trying to use this as the basis for impeaching Trump from office.
