A whistleblower set off a chain of events that ended with Democrats endorsing an impeachment inquiry after they filed a complaint about a phone call between Donald Trump and the Ukrainian President.
But the whistleblower’s identity was shrouded in mystery.
That is all about to change because this one fact about the Ukraine whistleblower will change everything you think.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced his committee was in touch with the whistleblower’s lawyers about appearing for testimony.
That set off a round of questions about who the whistleblower’s attorneys were.
And the revelation of their identity immediately called into question the entire story.
Andrew P. Bakaj is representing the whistleblower.
Bakaj previously worked for Senators Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton, and also worked at the CIA and State Department.
The announcement sparked questions about the lawyers representing the whistleblower. Andrew P. Bakaj, a former CIA official and founding/partnering manager of the Washington DC-based Compass Rose Legal Group, is one of the attorneys representing the whistleblower. He and the firm specialize in “adverse security clearance actions, whistleblower activities, and individuals, corporations, and organizations who are facing criminal and/or administrative investigations.”
Yahoo News notes that he “left the CIA in 2014 after facing professional retaliation for trying to work with intelligence community whistleblowers,” and the Washington Times describes him as a “vindicated whistleblower.”
The firm’s website details Bakaj’s past work as a private practice attorney in the nation’s capital and highlights his experience on Capitol Hill, working for three senators: late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY), as well as Schumer and Clinton.
The bio also mentions Bakaj’s past work for the Department of State, particularly at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The whistleblower retaining partisan counsel like Bakaj suggests this story is another Democrat Party hit job.
t reminds many Americans of the first clue the allegations against Kavanaugh were a hoax — when Christine Blasey Ford retained liberal activists to represent her.
The whistleblower retaining Bakaj leads many Americans to question the credibility of this so-called “whistleblower’s” claims.
