Can a Usurper Get Whistleblower Protections? [OPINION]
Can someone who reports wrongdoing by superiors be protected if and when it has been determined that the "whistleblower" has ulterior motives to make such accusations?
I may need to get my vision checked. I am seeing a divided government – one which is being run by a duly-elected President of the United States and the other by subversive bureaucrats, politicians and others in key positions to take on such legitimate powers.
In just another week, the U.S. Justice Department will unveil the investigation by U.S. Attorney John Durham. Durham was assigned by Attorney General William Barr to look into possible treasonous acts by former Obama Administration officials (and others) by framing President Trump and his closest staffers with the appearance of colluding with the Kremlin.
All along, my readers have been told by me that whatever Russia is seen doing, it is usually what they want you to see while they are off doing what they really set out to accomplish in another direction.
While I know full well that the report due next week usually falls into the category of underwhelming and anticlimactic, I am predicting historic bombshell revelations, indictments of some fairly powerful people and a revelation that will stun tens of millions of Americans.
One such prediction is that the "whistleblower," who was outed by Real Clear Investigations last week, is a deeply devout liberal Democrat who has worked closely with former Vice President Joe Biden. He will be forced to testify and under oath. I believe this individual is in more serious legal trouble than President Trump is or will be.
Even his attorney, Mark Zaid, is no random choice. The Conservative Treehouse found a tweet from him dating back to January 30, 2017. This is one who supports the plot to remove President Trump, no matter the devices used:
"Coup has started. as one falls, two will take their place #Rebellion #impeachment" - January 30, 2017 - Atty Mark Zaid
Almost as soon as the Mueller Report fell flat on its face, crushing Democratic hopes for impeachment, the next attempt began by exploiting a phone call from President Trump to Ukraine President Zelensky. If the identity of the whistleblower is correct, he will be someone who is a big Biden for President supporter. Someone who specifically chose an attorney supportive of radical and perhaps illegal means to destroy the Trump White House and is also reportedly someone who was removed from the West Wing by the Trump Administration for concerns of leaking information.
Why would Trump's request to have Ukraine look further into Biden's dealings with Ukraine be such a panic button for the whistleblower and for the Democrats if Biden had done nothing illegal or suspicious? The whistleblower, if accurate, was over in Ukraine with Biden when whatever transpired. This person never reported anything to the Obama White House. Right? Has anyone ever wondered why President Obama never endorsed his own VP, Joe Biden, for president?
The country is about to be turned on its head. Brace yourselves.
