Whistleblower's Lawyer Appears to Be a Swamp-Dwelling Deep-State Operative

The whistleblower who accused President Trump of wrongdoing on the phone call to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is being represented by a highly partisan lawyer who has deep ties to the Clintons, the CIA, John Brennan, and he seems to suffer from anti-Trump derangement syndrome.

In a series of tweets, Andre Bakaj can be seen bragging about torpedoing a Trump-nominated CIA inspector general and forcing another to withdraw his nomination. “I’m very patient and effective,” wrote Bakaj. “This is another tactical and major salvo.” According to The Federalist, Bakaj worked for Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton.

This is strangely similar to another lawyer, Max Stier, who just made a big splash by claiming he had witnessed Justice Brett Kavanaugh up to shenanigans at a party in college. While his story fizzled and got the New York Times in big trouble for printing it, he turned out to be a lawyer for Hillary Clinton too.

The president released the transcript of the call to the Ukrainian president today. You can read that here.

Don’t expect them to apologize. They’re already starting to proclaim that the transcript is meaningless and only the whistleblower, who has no first-hand knowledge of the call, should be believed. For real.
