NYT: Second Anti-Trump Whistleblower 'Considering' Filing Ukraine Dealings Complaint
New York Times reports 2nd intelligence official may make claims as Biden scandal deepens
The New York Times is claiming in a new report that a second anti-Trump intelligence community whistleblower is "considering submitting a complaint" against the president over his recent dealings with Ukraine.
The newspaper's Friday night report cites claims coming from "two inside people who have been briefed on the matter."
The NTY claim comes as allegations of corruption concerning Joe Biden's family dealings in Ukraine deepens.
Shortly before the NYT report was published, Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn stated that the Department of Justice is investigating Joe Biden for "conflicts of interest" and "possible corruption" during his time as US vice president.
According to Cornyn, Attorney General William Barr has launched an investigation into allegations that Biden abused his position as VP to protect his son's company that was being investigated by Ukraine's top prosecutor.
Allegations are also mounting against top Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), that the original whistleblower complaint is part of "coup" against the president.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik is calling for Rep. Schiff to be arrested and "charged with conspiracy to commit treason."
Speaking to Fox News this week, Kerik called the Trump whistleblower a "covert operative" who is "part of the Democrats' attempted coup" against the president.
Kerik says the unidentified White House whistleblower is working against the current administration in concert with some lawmakers.
According to NYT, the latest aspiring whistleblower has more direct information about Trump's dealings with Ukraine than the first whistleblower, whose complaint kick-started the current impeachment investigation.
The first whistleblower - known to be a CIA agent - lodged a formal complaint with Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson on August 12 regarding Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
During that conversation, Trump discussed with Zelensky whether officials should look into why a Ukranian prosecutor was fired while they were investigating an energy company upon which Joe Biden's son, Hunter, served as a board member.
Detractors of the President have attempted to claim the call was an attempt to "dig up dirt" on Joe Biden - who is likely to be his Democratic rival in the 2020 Election - despite the call's transcript proving otherwise.
It has been reported that the original whistleblower only had second or third-hand information about the phone call.
Trump's supporters have also claimed the whistleblower may also harbor a political bias, following reports that they are a registered Democrat.
Earlier this week, there were further accusations that they had interactions with Schiff before they officially lodged their whistleblower complaint on August 12.
According to Friday's report in The New York Times, the intelligence official who is now considering lodging a formal complaint has allegedly already been interviewed by Inspector General Michael Atkinson to verify statements made in the first complaint.
Meanwhile, Ukraine's new Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka announced Friday he is reopening the corruption cases into Joe Biden's son, Hunter's company after the original investigation was shut down by the previous Ukrainian administration under suspicious circumstances.
Ryaboshapka's office revealed on Friday that his team is reviewing several cases related to the owner of a gas company where Hunter Biden sat on the board.
Despite no experience or expertise in the field Hunter Biden was reportedly "compensated" $50,000 a month at Burisma, while his father was serving as US vice president.
While in office, Biden's role as VP put him in charge of overseas operations in Ukraine and China - two countries where his son had lucrative business contracts.
