BREAKING: Whistleblower Has 'Significant' Tie To 2020 Democrat

According to a bombshell report from The Washington Examiner, the infamous CIA whistleblower "had a significant' connection with one of the Democrat presidential candidates who hopes to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
“In an Aug. 26 letter, the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, wrote that the anonymous whistleblower who set off the Trump-Ukraine impeachment fight showed ‘some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate,'” Byron York of The Examiner wrote. “Now, however, there is word of more evidence of possible bias on the whistleblower’s part. Under questioning from Republicans during last Friday’s impeachment inquiry interview with Atkinson, the inspector general revealed that the whistleblower’s possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat,” York added. “It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year’s election.”
A person close to the matter told York, “The IG said [the whistleblower] worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates.”
Another person with knowledge of the situation said, “The IG said the whistleblower had a professional relationship with one of the 2020 candidates.”
A third person added, “What [Atkinson] said was that the whistleblower self-disclosed that he was a registered Democrat and that he had a prior working relationship with a current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.”
None of the sources have yet confirmed who the candidate is.
Back in September, the Trump White House revealed that the whistleblower “who leveled an explosive accusation against President Trump concerning his talks with Ukraine had ‘political bias’ in favor of ‘a rival candidate’ of the president.”
Even CNN reported that the “possible political bias” mentioned in “the Intelligence Community Inspector General report refers to the fact that the anonymous whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Donald Trump’s interactions with the Ukrainian President is a registered Democrat.”
It seems that the it goes much further than just "political bias."
“Further although the ICIG’s preliminary reviewed identified some indicia of bias of an arguable political bias on the part of the complainant in favor of a rival political candidate, such evidence did not change my determination that the complaint relating to the urgent concern ‘appears credible’ particularly given the other information the ICIG obtained during its preliminary review,” Atkinson said.
The deeper we go into the impeachment inquiry, the more sketchy and sneaky House Democrats have become. For a group who loves to leak anything and everything to the press, they are instead trying to hold secret testimonies where Republican lawmakers are not invited.
“House Democrats are weighing extraordinary steps to secure testimony from a whistleblower whose complaint prompted their impeachment inquiry, masking his identity to prevent President Trump’s congressional allies from exposing the individual, according to three officials familiar with the deliberations,” The Washington Post reported. “The steps under consideration include having the whistleblower testify from a remote location and obscuring the individual’s appearance and voice, these officials said.”
