    John Solomon has reported on what could be an important story connected with Ukraine and the Biden investigation. It sheds new light on the timeline:
    A newly unearthed document shows that Ukrainian officials had opened a new probe into the firm linked to Hunter Biden months before President Trump's phone call with that country's leader, Fox News contributor John Solomon reported late Tuesday.

    The Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson discovered the whistleblower behind the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky worked for a 2020 Democratic candidate. Atkinson wrote the whistleblower "showed 'some indicia of an arguable political favor of a rival political candidate.'"

    A photo revealed on Monday's Tucker Carlson tonight seems to contradict what former Vice President Biden told reporters last month -- that he'd never discussed his son Hunter's foreign business deals with him. The photo taken in 2014 shows "former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter golfing in the Hamptons with Devon Archer, who served on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings with Hunter," reports Fox News.

    60 Minutes reported Sunday that the whistleblower of the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky received federal protection. The news program insisted it had a letter to prove it. Mark Zaid, the lawyer representing the whistleblower, took 60 Minutes to the woodshed on Twitter over the report. He said the program "misinterpreted contents" of the letter.

    A plain reading of the so-called Whistleblower Complaint supports the reporting by the New York Times and others that the complainant is in the intelligence community, likely the CIA. It's not so much a whistleblower complaint as a closing argument crafted by lawyers based on information the complainant never witnessed in order to create a pretext for impeachment, or at a minimum to damage Trump's 2020 prospects.

    I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but this seems a little odd. Sean Davis at The Federalist reported that the intelligence community removed an important requirement when it comes to whistleblower information:
    Between May 2018 and August 2019, the intelligence community secretly eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings. This raises questions about the intelligence community’s behavior regarding the August submission of a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump. The new complaint document no longer requires potential whistleblowers who wish to have their concerns expedited to Congress to have direct, first-hand knowledge of the alleged wrongdoing that they are reporting.
