Ok, this looks bad. I hope it isnt true. He/she will surely be outed.

Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson told lawmakers last week that the whistleblower whose complaint about President Trump and Ukraine has set off an impeachment inquiry previously had "some type of professional relationship" with one of the 2020 Democratic candidates, Axios' Jonathan Swan has confirmed.

Atkinson wrote in an Aug. 26 letter that the whistleblower demonstrated "some indicia of an arguable political bias ... in favor of a rival political candidate." CNN later reported that the whistleblower is a registered Democrat, which Trump allies have used in an effort to undermine their credibility. Much of the information laid out in the whistleblower's original complaint has since been substantiated.

Atkinson did not say which Democratic candidate or in what capacity the whistleblower worked. A source tells Axios that it was unclear whether the working relationship was in the course of government service or more political.

Even if it doesn't look good there are other WBs and eyewitnesses. They can't just be dismissed.

It's not just the whistle blowers.

Their lawyers are the same lawyers Mr. (Intel officials 'have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you') Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton used.

Yes they can.

The transcript has already proven them to be LIARS.

It doesn't matter what they say.

The phone call in question has already been released.

But, you prefer the fake news over the facts ....

We get it!!

True not dismissing their testimony but it does have bad optics. Trump will milk it as long as he can. Claim it was an inside hit...Imagine if a Trumper got inside a Warren meeting? Would anyone then trust them?

I am not one to trust reports until I know more with that lying gang in the WhiteHouse and Congress.

Meanwhile there is this.:)
