Instincts say it is probably Biden. Other rumors have put the Whistleblower as an analyst working the Ukrain desk during the Obama admin at the time Biden was taking the lead on all matters Ukraine.Sorry if I missed it, but has the fact the "whistleblower" in addition to being a registered dem has work ties to a 2020 democrat candidate been discussed yet?
I’ve been wondering for the past year or so how much of it is them hitting the expiration date and how much of it is that some of their shit were lies from the outset.I didn't leave the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party left me.
I know a lot of people who feel this way. It's sad to see, but organizations only last so long. Everything has an expiration date.
He looks astoundingly like John Goodman in that picture.The only reason that the White House is able to tell them to fuck off is because they're still not sending subpoenas. I have no idea why everyone in the media keeps referring to them as subpoenas because they're not. There still hasn't been a vote, so there still isn't an inquiry. A subpoena can only be issued in regards to an ongoing case/investigation, they can't just be thrown at someone completely out of the blue to force them into testifying.
There isn't an actual case or investigation, so these are still nothing more than strongly-worded letters. If these were actually subpoenas then we'd more than likely see the White House and these administrators objecting to the issuance of the subpoena rather than ignoring them outright, and we'd also see the House members filing to hold these people in Contempt of Congress. You'd also see language similar to, "You are hereby commanded to report in person to the clerk of this court" somewhere in the letters that they've been sending.
I can't help but notice that none of these things have been happening, hence why whenever they send out a letter, Pompeo dunks it into a trash-can and you can always find the word "voluntary" somewhere in the request. If it's voluntary, it's not a subpoena.
They could also trudge up that ancient "Inherent Contempt" procedure from 1857, but given that they haven't sent the Sergeant-at-Arms to run out and start arresting people, that's not really happening either. Even if they wanted to go absolutely ass-mad nuclear on this whole ordeal and try to hold someone in Criminal Contempt of Congress, do you know who Congress would have to rely on to prosecute them?
