We also know that the so-called Whistleblower was involved in Operation Crossfire Hurricane -- the Obama administration's Trump-Russia investigation -- from the very beginning. His actions are now being investigated by US Attorney John Durham.
And we know that the so-called whistleblower coordinated with Adam Schiff's office before filing his formal complaint with the Inspector General's office, proving that this has been a partisan hit from the start.
The Whistleblower is biased, involved in the Ukraine corruption that Trump wanted investigated, and currently being investigated by the DOJ for his role in the Trump-Russia investigation. This whole impeachment inquiry is built on a sham whistleblower report.
But now, we are learning more news. The Intelligence Inspector General's Office is now investigating the whistleblower himself for profiting from his protected status. The allegation is that the whistleblower, again, widely presumed to be Ciaramella, received at least $227,000 from thousands of donors through an online crowdfunding website. The Inspector General is also investigating whether any of this money came from foreign sources, which would be very illegal.
From Fox News:
A newly filed complaint to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) alleges that the whistleblower whose allegations touched off House Democrats' impeachment inquiry may have violated federal law by indirectly soliciting more than a quarter-million dollars from mostly anonymous sources via a GoFundMe page.
The complaint, which was filed last week and obtained by Fox News, alleged the donations from roughly 6,000 individuals "clearly constitute" gifts to a current intelligence official that may be restricted because of the employee's official position pursuant to 5 CFR 2635.203 and other statutes. To date, the GoFundMe has raised over $227,000.
It is bad enough that the whistleblower filed his complaint out of political bias and self preservation. But it is truly beyond the pale to then try to personally profit from this treason.
The good news is that if these allegations are true, and the so-called whistleblower committed these crimes, he will no longer enjoy anonymity protections...
