If you were alive and sober during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing, you could already predict how the Ukraine story was going to play out. We start with one “whistleblower.” Early today, George Stephanopoulos broke the story that there was a second “whistleblower.”
BREAKING: Attorney representing whistleblower who sounded the alarm on Pres. Trump’s dealings with Ukraine tells @ABC News he is now representing a second whistleblower who has first-hand knowledge of events. https://t.co/9FE7oei7pJ

Zaid tells ABC News’ Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that the second person — also described as an intelligence official — has first-hand knowledge of some of the allegations outlined in the original complaint and has been interviewed by the head of the intelligence community’s internal watchdog office, Michael Atkinson.
The existence of a second whistleblower — particularly one who can speak directly about events involving the president related to conversations involving Ukraine — could undercut Trump’s repeated insistence that the original complaint, released on Sept. 26, was “totally inaccurate.”
And now Zaid’s partner, Andrew Bakaj, says there are multiple “whistleblowers.”
IC WHISTLEBLOWER UPDATE: I can confirm that my firm and my team represent multiple whistleblowers in connection to the underlying August 12, 2019, disclosure to the Intelligence Community Inspector General. No further comment at this time. https://t.co/05b5aAVm2G

UPDATE: WE ALREADY HAVE THE TRANSCRIPT https://t.co/sgbL89hOr2

From what we’ve seen so far, from the transcript, from the testimony of a participant, Kurt Volker, and from the “whistleblower complaint” the basic allegation is that there is a law that says Democrats cannot be investigated for corruption and President Trump violated that law. People, like Mitt Romney, might not like it but demanding action of foreign nations is done all the time. The fact that it is Joe Biden’s coke addled whelp at the center of this is immaterial. Quite honestly, it really doesn’t matter how many “whistleblowers” climb forth out of Adam Schiff’s rectum, more people testifying on the same event does not make that event wrong or criminal. The most these additional “whistleblowers” can talk about is what we already know…unless they start contradicting one another, and then it could get interesting.
All you can say is that President Trump was dead on the money on this one:
The first so-called second hand information “Whistleblower” got my phone conversation almost completely wrong, so now word is they are going to the bench and another “Whistleblower” is coming in from the Deep State, also with second hand info. Meet with Shifty. Keep them coming!
