A former associate of the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper reportedly helped a whistleblower make his secondhand complaint against President Donald Trump concerning a July phone call with Ukraine’s president.
Charles McCullough, the inspector general of the Intelligence Community during the Clinton email scandal, helped Andrew Bakaj write the complaint. No wonder Hillary Clinton has been praising it so highly.
Between now and then, McCullough has changed jobs and doesn’t represent the whistleblower anymore. But his association with Clapper, who spread fake news about foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election as an analyst for CNN and lied to Congress about the government collecting data on Americans, brings up even more questions about the whistleblower complaint’s motivations and legitimacy.
The whistleblower complaint is moot anyway, since Trump released the actual transcript of the call. It doesn’t really matter what the whistleblower “thinks” happened, since what he reported was secondhand and we now know what the call actually said.
When are Democrats going to just admit that they really don’t have anything on Trump and get on with the business of the country?
