Ukraine whistleblower has never worked for a political candidate: Lawyers rebut Trump team’s attacks

Published

on

On Wednesday, Axios reported that attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the heart of the Ukraine scandal are pushing back on a key line of attack from President Donald Trump’s defenders: that the whistleblower is somehow a politically connected person out for revenge on Trump.

This pushback comes after reporting that the whistleblower had “some type of professional relationship” with one of the Democratic candidates for president.

The whistleblower, they wrote, did indeed work with one of the candidates, but not in a political capacity, and has “come into contact with presidential candidates from both parties in their roles as elected officials – not as candidates.”

They added that the whistleblower “voluntarily provided relevant career information” to the intelligence community inspector general and that the complaint was found to be “urgent and credible.”

“[T]he whistleblower is not the story,” they wrote. “To date, virtually every substantive allegation has been confirmed by other sources. For that reason the identity of the whistleblower is irrelevant.”

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

Published

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
