Soros Funded Group That Partnered With Buzzfeed Shows Up In Whistleblower Complaint Against Trump
Here we go again….
Parts of the whistleblower’s complaint claiming that President Trump was “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country” in the 2020 presidential election relies on information provided by an organization bankrolled by…you guessed it…George Soros.
The complainant admits, “I was not a direct witness to most of the events described.” However, the idiot continues to allege that Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
The whistleblower relented that his information was secondhand: “However, I found my colleagues’ accounts of these events to be credible because, in almost all cases, multiple officials recounted fact patterns that were consistent with one another.”
A important second part of the “whistleblower’s complaint” (can we just call them deep state spy?) states that “multiple U.S. officials told me that Mr. Giuliani had reportedly privately reached out to a variety of other Zelensky advisers, including Chief of Staff Andriy Bohdan and Acting Chairman of the Security Service of Ukraine Ivan Bakanov.”
This was supposedly to follow up on Trump’s call with the Ukraine President to discuss the “cases” mentioned in the call. Here’s where it gets interesting…Even though the narrative was written in the first person about this suppose follow up, there is a footnote referencing a report by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP).
The footnote reads:
A report published by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) on 22 July, two associates of Mr. Giuliani reportedly traveled to Kyiv in May 2019 and met with Mr. Bakanov and another close Zelensky adviser, Mr. Serhiy Shefir.
But it doesn’t stop there the whistleblower’s statement continues to use the information provided by the OCCRP on three other occasions for the purposes of:
Write that Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko “also stated that he wished to communicate directly with Attorney General Barr on these matters.”
Document that Trump adviser Rudi Giuliani “had spoken in late 2018 to former Prosecutor General Shokin, in a Skype call arranged by two associates of Mr. Giuliani.”
Bolster the charge that, “I also learned from a U.S. official that ‘associates’ of Mr. Giuliani were trying to make contact with the incoming Zelenskyy team.” The so-called whistleblower then relates in another footnote, “I do not know whether these associates of Mr. Giuliani were the same individuals named in the 22 July report by OCCRP, referenced above.”
The OCCRP report repeatedly referenced is actually a “joint investigation by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and BuzzFeed News, based on interviews and court and business records in the United States and Ukraine.”
BuzzFeed infamously also first published the full anti-Trump dossier alleging unsubstantiated collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. The dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee and was produced by the Fusion GPS opposition dirt outfit.
The OCCRP and BuzzFeed “joint investigation” resulted in both OCCRP and BuzzFeed publishing similar lengthy pieces on July 22 claiming that Giuliani was attempting to use connections to have Ukraine investigate Trump’s political rivals.
The OCCRP is heavily funded by George Soros and has been shown as the number one donor to the organization.
So there you have it! A “whistleblower” with second-hand information claims the President is breaking the law with the information provided by a Soros funded group that worked with the same news agency that published the original fake dossier. Yeah, that sounds legit (sarcasm).
