This is absolutely huge.
By now, you know that there is a Federal law protecting so-called "whistleblowers." If a Federal employee witnesses something criminal or unethical, they can report it anonymously to an Inspector General it to be fully investigated.
But in order to qualify as a "whistleblower," the individual needs to actually witness something. They need first-party evidence.
Or at least, that used to be the case. Last month, the Intelligence Community Inspector General changed the rules for whistleblower complaints. Instead of requiring first-party evidence, the whistleblower form was changed in August to allow for whistleblowers to submit complaints based on second-hand and even third-hand information.
The Inspector General's office just admitted that these rules were changed because of the anti-Trump whistleblower and to make sure that he/she, and others, know that they can file whistleblower reports against Trump based on rumors and gossip.
And just like that, Trump is now facing even more anonymous accusations. Over the weekend, the media reported on whistleblower leaks accusing Trump of also "pressuring" the United Kingdom, Italy, and Australia to help Attorney General Bill Barr investigate the criminals in the Obama administration who launched the anti-Trump witch hunt.
Democrats are terrified because they see the walls closing in. They know all of their crimes are about to come to light, and they are desperate to remove Trump from office before it all hits the fan!
Donald Trump was never supposed to win in 2016. Hillary Clinton was supposed to win and then cover up all of the Deep State's crimes.
For years, we have reported on the allegation that Obama officials sidestepped the Constitution by using foreign intelligence agencies to spy on Donald Trump and his associates. As you know, Americans have a right to privacy. The US Government isn't allowed to spy on Americans without a warrant. But foreign governments are allowed to spy on Americans.
The United States is part of what is called the Five Eyes intelligence sharing alliance. The alliance requires full cooperation between the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. These other countries do not have a 4th Amendment. Their citizens do not have the same protections from government surveillance that Americans enjoy. So, the United States often relies on these allies to investigate people that the US government wouldn't be allowed to investigate on its own.
The allegation is that the Obama administration knew they couldn't spy on Trump legally, so they used our foreign allies to do it anyway. Specifically, the allegation is that the Deep State used UK, Australia, and Italy to spy on Trump associates like George Papadopoulos and Carter Page when they were traveling abroad. The evidence would never be admissible in a court of law, but the Obama administration would be able to use it to further their witch hunts.
That is why Trump called countries like Ukraine, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Australia. He was introducing these foreign leaders to Bill Barr and asking them to cooperate in the DOJ's new investigation into the Trump-Russia witch hunt's origins.
As you know, Bill Barr appointed US Attorney John Durham to investigate and prosecute Obama administration criminals who broke the law to try to defeat President Trump back in 2016. Over the weekend, Barr was in Italy with Durham collecting precisely this evidence.
That is why Democrats are terrified. They know the jig is up...
Which is why it is so infuriating to see Republicans cowering to the Left's impeachment demands. This impeachment push is nothing but an attempt to distract from the Democrats' own crimes. We already know that the Obama administration and Democrat Party coordinated with foreign countries to try to dig up dirt on Trump and his associates.
The Left is accusing Trump of doing the same exact thing because they know the walls are starting to close in...
We have never been this close to getting to the truth. For the first time, the Deep State is terrified of having to face the consequences of their actions.
But right as the finish line is in sight, Republicans are completely caving.
Rep. Justin Amash (MI) left the GOP this year because of his never-Trump hatred. He just announced that he will vote to impeach Trump when Democrats bring their Articles of Impeachment up for a vote.
Other Republicans are flipping as well. There are 55 House Republicans who have refused to say one way or another whether they support the Democrats' plan to remove Trump. They are still weighing their options.
Jeff Flake has also been manning the phones to whip up support for the Left's impeachment push and now estimates that at least 35 Republican Senators are now leaning towards removing Trump from office. If the vote was held in secret, between 30 and 35 GOPers would vote to convict and remove Trump from office.
The only thing holding them back is that the vote will not be held in secret. They are scared of facing a backlash if they agree to remove Trump from office...
Democrats are rushing forward with impeachment and they are putting a ton of pressure on the GOP to help remove President Trump from office.
You MUST fight back before we lose this!
