    First Ukraine Whistleblower falling apart, so media inventing a Second Whistleblower

    First Ukraine Whistleblower falling apart, so media inventing a Second Whistleblower

    NY Times supposed bombshell: Someone is thinking about filing a second Ukraine whistleblower complaint but has not done so, and may not need to do so since he or she already has been interviewed.

    The New York Times is continuing the tradition of the Russia collusion media frenzy, where every few days a new media “bombshell” was launched, only to be revealed as a dud. By the time the bombshell was debunked, a new media bombshell was launched, hence a new news cycle.

    It was the permanent crisis news cycle:

    Since Mueller was appointed in May 2017, after James Comey was fired as FBI Director, we have been in a perpetual 3-5 day “scoop” news cycle based on the Mueller probe.

    For over a year barely a week goes by that some publication doesn’t publish a “scoop” about what Mueller is thinking, who his team is talking to, what they might do or might not do, and so on. The Mueller probe is the media gift that keeps giving, usually based on anonymous sources.

    Just as each breathless and frequently demonstrably inaccurate media firestorm has died down — Wait, another Big Scoop. Let’s start a new news cycle. It never ends, and will not end so long as Mueller is investigating Trump, whether Trump is a “subject” or a “target” or something else.

    The nation has suffered this media-driven Mueller probe gaslighting ….

    It’s happening again.

    The case for the First “Whistleblower” is falling apart, with the revelation of previously undisclosed pre-complaint communications with Adam Schiff’s office, damaging testimony from the recently resigned special envoy to Ukraine, and above all, the release of the complaint itself which demonstrated it was a professionally prepared legal brief and closing argument not a true whistleblower revelation.

    Now the media is in search of a new whistleblower, and the NY Times has found one to create another news cycle. Except this Second Whistleblower has not filed a whistleblower complaint, but is only thinking about it according the the Times’ sources. Seriously.

    This “bombshell” is lighting up Twitter and will dominate the news for the weekend, 2nd Official Is Weighing Whether to Blow the Whistle on Trump’s Ukraine Dealings:

    A second intelligence official who was alarmed by President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine is weighing whether to file his own formal whistle-blower complaint and testify to Congress, according to two people briefed on the matter.

    The official has more direct information about the events than the first whistle-blower, whose complaint that Mr. Trump was using his power to get Ukraine to investigate his political rivals touched off an impeachment inquiry. The second official is among those interviewed by the intelligence community inspector general to corroborate the allegations of the original whistle-blower, one of the people said.

    The inspector general, Michael Atkinson, briefed lawmakers privately on Friday about how he substantiated the whistle-blower’s account. It was not clear whether he told lawmakers that the second official is considering filing a complaint.

    A new complaint, particularly from someone closer to the events, would potentially add further credibility to the account of the first whistle-blower, a C.I.A. officer who was detailed to the National Security Council at one point….

    Got that? Someone is thinking about filing a whistleblower complaint but has not done so, and may not need to do so since he or she already has been interviewed.

    Such a person would not, under any circumstances, be a real whistleblower — the person is not revealing anything new and is merely a witness to someone else’s complaint. It’s a media hoax to assign the term “whistleblower” to such a person, but it creates a new news cycle.

    Yet within minutes of the 8:38 p.m. publication of the report by the NY Times tonight, this supposed second whistleblower was being hailed as the end of Trump.

    Just more manipulation.

    But maybe the media Russia collusion hoax isn’t the best analogy:

    “Crazy how this is mimicking the Kavanaugh accusations. By Sunday Michael Avenatti will be holding a press conference talking about a third whistleblower.”

    President Trump is going after the Uni-Party weasels that are all in on this impeachment!

    God Bless You President Trump!

    Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China pertained to corruption, not politics. If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he could have won. Sadly, he choked!

    Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous “ass” who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!

    Barry, you said, “It takes time to defeat an entire federal government of crooks built up over the last hundred years.”

    True. All the more reason for Trump to spend less time on Twitter battles with twerps like Beto, and more time checking up on the shenanigans that his DOJ and State Department are pulling to protect Hillary in Judicial Watch’s lawsuits.

      Look, when you don’t understand how to use the tools of battle and war, perhaps it is best you don’t type and look foolish.

      Perhaps, you should spend less time trying to prove you are correct that the president is a bad person and understand the magnitude of the job, and the fact that the president can engage in more than one thing at a time, or that there are political limits to what a president with a GOPe as bad as the commies can do.

      Answer this – How much time do you think it took to engage a beto in a twitter comment?

    Somebody heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who says Impeach Trump!
