President Trump’s current battle over impeachment comes to us via an anonymous whistleblower who didn’t care for the second and third-hand information that he or she was hearing from within the West Wing.
This is, of course, an unsettling way in which to impeach a President, but that hasn’t stopped House Democrats from moving forward with this sketchy political maneuver.
Now, the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment kerfuffle is coming under fire themselves after an illicit donation scheme has been uncovered.
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.
The complaint also raised the possibility that some of the donations may have come from prohibited sources, and asked the ICIG to look into whether any “foreign citizen or agent of a foreign government” contributed.
Tully Rinckey PLLC, the law firm representing the individual reporting the allegations, is closely guarding the identity of their client, though Fox News is told the individual is the holder of a top-secret SCI security clearance and has served in government.
The GOP has been hopeful that this whistleblower will be allowed to testify during this next phase of impeachment – a wish that the Democrats continue to hamper with their nonsensical witness rules.
