Ukraine Scandal: A Second Whistleblower Comes Forward


A second whistleblower is coming forward in the Ukraine scandal. Attorneys representing the first whistleblower whose complaint about President Trump's dealings with the Ukraine have confirmed that they represent "multiple" clients.

Attorney Andrew Bakaj said his firm is working with the whistleblowers in connection with the August 12th disclosure to the Intelligence Community Inspector General.

As we’ve been telling you, the original complaint triggered an impeachment inquiry by House Democrats into claims the President pressured Ukraine's president to investigate his Democratic political rival Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Trump calls the impeachment inquiry a “big hoax.” Undeterred, he also asked China to investigate the Bidens on camera...hours before it was revealed that he’d made a similar request of China in June.

Meanwhile, the White House is responding to news of thea second whistleblower. In a statement, the White House Press Secretary brushed it off, saying "it doesn't matter how many people decide to call themselves whistleblowers" about the call with Ukraine's leader.

Someone definitely not impressed with the President’s “international dealings” these days? Former Secretary of State and retired four-star U.S. Army General Colin Powell. Speaking with CNN over the weekend, Powell condemned the GOP for “enabling” Mr. Trump. “I’m a moderate Republican who believes that we should have strong foreign policy, strong defense policy, that we have to look out for our people, and we ought to work hard to making sure we’re one country and one team,” Powell declared. “The Republican Party has got to get a grip on itself. Right now, Republican leaders and members of the Congress, in both the Senate and in the House, are holding back because they’re terrified of what will happen to any one of them if they speak out.”
