Friday, a leading contributor for Fox News reported that the first whistleblower in the unfolding Ukraine phone call hoax which the Democrats believe will impeach President Donald J. Trump lied in section three, part one of the “urgent concern” whistleblower complaint form when omitting disclosure of information to Congress or Congressional Committee.
Per Catherine Herridge: IC Inspector General told lawmakers the whistleblower did not disclose contact w Schiff/Committee staff – so IG never looked into it. IG “had no knowledge of it”.

ICIG Michael Atkinson told lawmakers about the failure to disclose in a closed session Friday, after Rep. Adam Bennett Schiff D-CA, chairman of the House intelligence committee, earlier in the week admitted that he had in fact had prior contact with the whistleblower on the matter of the complaint against Trump.
The revelation led Trump to respond:
It shows that Schiff is a fraud. I think it’s a scandal that he knew before. I’d go a step further. I’d say he probably helped write it. That’s a big story. He knew long before, and he helped write it too. It’s a scam.
Enter a second possible whistleblower on the matter, who, like the first whistleblower, a member of the intelligence community.
According to The New York Times, the potential second complainant has allegedly already been interviewed by Inspector General Michael Atkinson to verify statements made in the first complaint.
As of early Monday morning, the New York Times reported:
“An intelligence official with ‘firsthand knowledge’ has provided information related to President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and is now protected from retaliation as a whistle-blower, lawyers representing the official said on Sunday, confirming that a second individual has come forward in the matter.”
Former leader of the CIA, John O. Brennan called for anyone willing to come forward to blow the whistle on the President of the United States.
A reminder to federal officials:
There is no limit on the number of individuals who can use the whistleblower statute.
If you think you were involved in unlawful activity as a result of a directive from Mr. Trump or someone doing his bidding, now is the time to report it.

Enter Former CIA agent, Bryan Dean Wright, lifelong Democrat objects.
Wright has been a loud voice of reason on the dangerous motives of the Democrat party, who are bent on impeaching a duly elected President, even if it means lying and public humiliation for the party.
To hell w/ the whistleblowers.
Did Trump & DoJ have reasonable belief that Biden engaged in corrupt activity abroad to aid / protect his son?
Millions in dirty Ukraine money, $1B+ dirty Chinese money.
Joe says they never discussed. Hunter says just once.

For the past three yrs, Ben Rhodes & other Obama staffers were happy to spread the Steele Dossier’s conspiracy theories.
But now, after Mueller found none of it to be true, they’re slamming an AG for scrutinizing how the scam got started in the first place.

Drawing parallels between the FBI and the CIA, regarding other frauds committed against the American people in the attempt to over a sitting US President, Wright said that he was reminded of the hoax invented by James Comey, former director of the FBI, to abuse Trump.
In sum: We have a politically biased CIA officer who lied on a WB’er form to relay politically biased second hand “facts” & politically biased media analysis.
Upshot: This is Comey 2.0, an operation “to create public pressure for official action.”
These people will not stop. https://t.co/l8FFJH5z24

Clearly, Part three – section one of the urgent concerns form asks if the whistleblower had disclosed to Congress or a Congressional Committee information about the allegation in question. That would be the appropriate place, even according to the Schiff, the whistleblower should have answered – “Yes, Adam Schiff, chairman of the House intelligence committee.”
It remains to be seen how long Americans will wait until yet another whistleblower steps forward.
