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?
That mystery was turned upside down when President Donald Trump spoke about a big secret about the whistleblower’s identity.
“We’re trying to find out about a whistleblower,” Trump told reporters after an Oval Office swearing-in ceremony for new Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia,
Trump went on to recite a report from the New York Times, in which the outlet revealed last week that the person is a male CIA agent.
The report, which the Times says was corroborated by three sources, offered the only public information known about the so-called “whistleblower.”
In recent days, we have learned about of information about the individual and their shoddy complaint against the president.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced two weeks ago that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will officially begin an impeachment inquiry into Trump over a phone call the president had with the Ukrainian President Zelensky back in July.
A so-called 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.
The whistleblower is lying on so many levels.
This has also led to extreme calls from Republicans to investigate the scandal involving former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, over shady business deals they had in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden 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, was 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.
The Ukrainian Parliament removed Lutsenko as the prosecutor on the case after Joe Biden allegedly threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid to Ukraine.
As Trump has said numerous times, it sure looks like Biden used his power as VP to pressure Ukraine into removing the prosecutor who was investigating a shady deal involving his son — and that would be illegal.
