This Ukraine scandal might be the biggest mess to ever hit our country’s politics. The major news agencies are saying it’s bigger than Watergate, and they’re right. Though it’s not for any of the reasons they claim.
President Trump hasn’t even flirted with breaking laws on this one. His attempts to investigate American corruption tied to Ukraine are both legal and reasonable. The real scandal is in the conspiracy formed to try and force an impeachment of the President. This all ties back to a simple rule about whistleblowers and how it was secretly changed.
The Old Rule
This starts off simply enough. When the rules to facilitate whistle blowing were put in place, they had some clear guidelines. If the complaint meets sufficient criteria, it has to be treated with urgency and passed up the chain quickly. Also, there are protections in place for whistleblowers so they will feel safe coming forward with their complaints.
Perhaps the most important rule of all limits what constitutes an official whistleblower complaint. The complaint has to be constructed from first-hand knowledge and not second-hand accounts or hearsay.
This rule was intended to keep the system from clogging with unsubstantiated claims or complaints that can’t be met with any real follow through. You see where this is going.
It’s all pretty obvious. We don’t want to compromise state secrets over lunchroom gossip. Here’s where things fall apart. This third rule — the one that requires whistleblowers to actually know what they’re talking about — was changed in September.
That’s right. Mere days before the now infamous report was pushed through and delivered to Congress, the official whistleblower rules changed to make second-hand accounts admissible. Under the new rules, the complaint was passed on to Congress, more specifically Adam Schiff, and we ended up with a brand new scandal.
What’s crazier is that this change was implemented in secret, without any formal acknowledgment and without official dissemination. Most of the intelligence community didn’t even know the rule was changed.
That’s not fishy at all. This is also only a single piece of the larger puzzle that points to an outright nefarious conspiracy.
Secretly changing whistleblower rules to allow the empty complaint we’ve all seen is shady at best. Adding in the additional details tied to this story points to a pretty obvious and poorly hidden conspiracy. You see, Adam Schiff tweeted details of the whistleblower complaint. More importantly, he did it up to two weeks before the complaint was officially passed to his office. In other words, he knew what was in the document before it was finalized.
Now, you could argue that this is because Schiff is well-informed. He’s at the head of the intelligence committee, so he could have had access to information before the whistleblower, right?
The problem is that Schiff’s tweets don’t just share coincidental details with the complaint. They share exact language. There’s no question that he read (if not constructed) the complaint before it was finalized and sent up the chain.
There’s a third conspiratorial detail that really sets this whole thing on fire. The complaint itself references a company that was a key provider of information for the whole thing. That company is funded by George Soros.
Let’s put all of this together. A few weeks ago, a whistleblower complaint was passed up the intelligence chain. It was largely ignored because under the old rules (that were the only ones anyone knew about), it didn’t count as an urgent complaint, and it was clearly a biased individual just trying to create stink to aim at the President. It didn’t even count as a whistleblower. Then, Adam Schiff started tweeting information contained in the complaint. It was then pointed out to intelligence leaders that new rules forced them to pass the complaint to Schiff. From there, we got the current scandal, only to learn that this whole thing has Soros money tied to it.
What more do you need to see? This is a coup. Deep-state operators, beholden to major Democrats, have changed the rules and crafted an unsubstantiated narrative to try and end President Trump’s tenure.
That is what’s happening, and to cap it all, they’re trying to blame him for corrupt actions that were actually taken by Joe Biden and a number of Democratic members of Congress. At this point, you have to assume it would have been easier just to shoot President Trump and skip the charades, but maybe that wouldn’t suit their twisted sense of irony.
