A whistleblower submitted an anonymous complaint with the then-Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, Michael Atkinson, in August 2019.
His acquaintance, who was later identified as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, Director of European Affairs for the National Security Council at the time, had informed him about a phone contact between then-President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy that had greatly disturbed him. Concern over the whistleblower’s second-hand description of the call prompted the House to launch an impeachment investigation the following month, which resulted in Trump’s first impeachment.
Although the name of the whistleblower was a well-known fact in Washington and was extensively discussed in the conservative media, the legacy media thought it of the highest importance to protect his anonymity. He shown bravery and stood up for the rule of law.
In recent months, an increasing number of FBI whistleblowers have sought out to Republican politicians, while Democrats appear entirely uninterested. And they all had intimate knowledge of bureau insider misconduct.
Rep. Jim Jordan, ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, discussed the politicization of the Department of Justice and the FBI on Fox News’ “Sunday Night in America with Trey Gowdy.”
In the week following the FBI raid on Trump’s Palm Beach residence Mar-a-Lago, Jordan said his people have voiced worry about “what they’ve seen.”
“Alright Jimmy, I want you to imagine if the FBI agent investigating Hunter Biden was as biased against him as Peter Strzok was against Donald Trump,” Gowdy said, “what do you think Politicos’ reaction would be to that?”
Jordan said with a smile, “There would be no other news for you to watch… These men never deviate from the norm. The left fabricates a falsehood. The mainstream media and Big Media report the untruth. The falsehood is amplified by Big Tech. Then, when we attempt to speak the truth, they call us names, try to get rid of us, and convince the world that we are the ones who are not being straight with them.
“The good news is [the American people] have figured it out. And I’ll tell you who else has figured it out …”

“Fourteen FBI agents have come to our office as whistleblowers, and they are good people,” Jordan told Gowdy. “There are lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that is the problem. Some of these good agents are coming to us, telling us this is baloney, what’s going on — the political nature now of the Justice Department — God bless them for doing it — talking to us about the school board issue, about a whole host of issues.”
“It is becoming a well-worn trail of agents who say, ‘This has got to stop.’ And thank goodness for them,” Jordan said. “And I believe they’re going to make a big change on Nov. 8.” CONTINUE REDING…
