Inspector General Complaint Claims Ukraine Whistleblower Violated Fundraising Laws

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.12.19

A new complaint filed with the Intelligence Community Inspector General’s office claims the whistleblower at the center of the Democrats’ latest impeachment push may have violated federal donation laws.

“A newly filed complaint to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) alleges that the whistleblower whose allegations touched off House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry may have violated federal law by indirectly soliciting more than a quarter-million dollars from mostly anonymous sources via a GoFundMe page,” reports Fox News.

“The complaint, which was filed last week and obtained by Fox News, alleged the donations from roughly 6,000 individuals ‘clearly constitute’ gifts to a current intelligence official that may be restricted because of the employee’s official position pursuant to 5 CFR 2635.203 and other statutes. To date, the GoFundMe has raised over $227,000,” adds Fox.

“Any fundraising efforts for the Intelligence Community Whistleblower have complied with federal laws, including ethics requirements. Should any governmental agency properly inquire we would, of course, cooperate,” said attorney Andrew Bakaj.

BACKFIRE: Trump Re-Election Campaign, GOP Raise $13 MILLION Since Pelosi’s Impeachment Push

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.27.19

President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican Party have reportedly raised $13 million since Nancy Pelosi announced her official impeachment push earlier this week.

President Trump’s reelection campaign and the GOP have raised $13 million since Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday that House Democrats would launch a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump amid scrutiny over his interactions with Ukraine,” reports The Hill.

“A Trump campaign official confirmed the figure to The Hill, saying it represented funds raised by the campaign as well as the Republican National Committee (RNC),” adds the website.

“A BIG thank you to @SpeakerPelosi and the Democrats – in the last 48 hours we have raised $8.5 million dollars in small dollar donations. People are sick of your nonsense but please keep it up — you are handing @realDonaldTrump the win in 2020!” posted Eric Trump on social media.

Original Story: September 24, 2019

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officially endorsed an impeachment inquiry into President Trump Tuesday evening; announcing her plan after days of media speculation regarding the Commander-in-Chief’s private conversation with the leader of Ukraine.

“I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine,” posted Trump on Twitter. “You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!”

“The decision sets up an election season clash between Trump and Congress that seems certain to exacerbate the nation’s fierce partisan divides and inject deep uncertainty into the 2020 presidential contest. The probe is expected to focus in part on reports that Trump pressed Ukraine’s president to help investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden,” reports the Associated Press.

BIDEN ON UKRAINE: ‘Want an Example of When a President Abuses His Power… Climate Change’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.03.19

Former Vice President Joe Biden weighed-in Thursday on the Democrats’ latest push to impeach Donald Trump; bizarrely saying “climate change” is a good example of what happens when a President “abuses his power.”

“If you want to an example of what happens when a president puts his own selfish interests ahead of the national interests — when a president abuses his power — I’d say this is Exhibit A. Want another example? Climate change,” said Biden.

Biden’s comments come hours after a group of climate activists in London accidentally doused themselves with 475 gallons of “fake blood.”

“BREAKING: @ExtinctionR and @CClimateAction activists use fire engine to spray 1,800 litres of fake blood over the front of the Treasury in London,” posted Occupy London just before the mishap.

“Four people have since been arrested for criminal damage in relation to the incident,” reports the Evening Standard. “While eventually successful, the operation did not get off to the best start when the climate activists lost control of the hose.”
