Nunes Aide Reportedly Leaking Whistleblower’s Name

October 31, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

Derek Harvey, a former Trump aide who now works for Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., reportedly leaked documents identifying the Ukraine whistleblower, the Daily Beast reported.

Harvey handed notes to House Republicans identifying the whistleblower’s name ahead of closed-door depositions in an attempt to get the name in the record of the proceedings, which House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif., vowed to release.

President Donald Trump has pushed for the whistleblower to be identified and said the person was “almost a spy.”

The complaint filed by the whistleblower alleged Trump improperly pressured Ukraine’s leader to investigate a political rival.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., cited the report in announcing last month that six committees would investigate Trump for impeachment.

“Exposing the identity of the whistleblower and attacking our client would do nothing to undercut the validity of the complaint’s allegations,” Mark Zaid, one of the whistleblower’s attorneys said. “What it would do, however, is put that individual and their family at risk of harm. Perhaps more important, it would deter future whistleblowers from coming forward in subsequent administrations, Democratic or Republican.”

      Amen to that Tom. It’s clear Adam shitface and Pinhead Pelosi along with the entire Democratic Party has turned into treasonous, underhanded, sneaky, lying, traitors to the Constitution and the Republic of the United States. They are denying due process to 63 million Americans that voted for President Trump.

      Adam Shifty lied about having evidence of Trump/Russia collusion. He lied about not having contact with the leaking “whistleblower”. Is it legal to leak confidential information? He fabricated a story he told as Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president. And the liar Shifty is acting as prosecutor, jury, and judge in a Star Chamber like farce behind closed doors in the basement not allowing anything coming out except his own well chosen leaks. If I was a Democrat I would be mad
      as he.. and very much ashamed at unconstitutional way top Democrats act.

      The Whistleblower is not only a liar, but is a coward who cannot even withstand his own convictions. I think TRUMP foiled the A.H. DEM’s by providing the transcript “right now”. Their pants are down and they act so sorry they have to do this. What an immense joke. Can’t everyone know how big a psychopath Schiff is. DEM’s, you are certainly playing with fire when a known compulsive liar is your Champion. Better start now Pepsi.

    If Pelosi is a model for women in the work place, than I will NOT vote for a single woman. On the other hand maybe I should vote on my dog Cricket!!! She is really, really smart, loyal, very loving, loves even strangers that come to our door – she is also protective of ME. If my husband, even, acts like he wants to fight with me she is in the middle of it. Sooooo maybe girls are not ALL bad. How about just putting a dog like Cricket in her place. NOT a vicious dog!!!

    The Whistleblower laws were set up to protect people from retaliation from companies corporations and government facilities that they work for not from an individual that they were reporting as to have in some way broken the law that is not a whistleblower. That is a witness there is a complete difference. It absolutely boggles my mind with all the attorneys and very intelligent people on Capitol Hill no one has caught on to that yet. If I go to the police and make a report about an individual I am a witness filing a complaint I will testify before that individual if it comes to trial I am not considered a whistleblower. If I go to a government agency to report the company I’m working for because they are violating environmental law or some other aspect of the law then I became a whistleblower. My name is only protected for the time it takes the agency to investigate to find if there is Merit in my complaint.

    Being a whistleblower is a very serious act. If you don’t believe the charges you are making are just as serious, yet you don’t wish to stand by them and defend them by coming forward, it’s best you keep your mouth shut. Then again you can go on Twitter and claim you are Pierre (aka Mitt Romney) and start the rumor that way. Only problem is Twitter won’t pay you a Bonus like Shifty Shift would.

    Pelosi talks of voting…….Yes, we can….and we can vote for whom we please w/o any help from these awful democrats who have just re-written our Constitution. Shame on all of them. Our President has rights also that are being trampled on by them.

    Does this not mean something? Somehow we have had our freedoms taken away by a mob. Adam Schiff needs to go!!!!!
    I don’t think there is a Whistleblower…..!!!!!
