Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), during an appearance on Huntsville, Alabama radio’s WVNN on Monday, Nov. 11, said “people like” the so-called whistleblower, who he deemed to be a spy for Democrats, is the real threat that undermines President Donald Trump.
“It becomes a real problem when you have people like the whistleblower, who is, in fact, a spy in my judgment. And he was a spy on behalf of the Democratic Party, Joe Biden and who knows whom else,” Brooks said.
“And I suspect he went into the White House knowing he was going to spy and he was going to try to undermine the president of the United States as best he could. Now when you have someone of that nature, that is a real problem,” he continued.
The whistleblower complaint is at the center of the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry into President Trump’s alleged misconduct during his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
President Trump’s suggested, in his July call, that Zelenskiy investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine, after it emerged that Joe Biden, the former vice president and current 2020 presidential candidate, had pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor while Hunter Biden held a lucrative role on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company.
Zelenskiy has said he felt no improper pressure during the call. President Trump said the call was “perfect” and he would never “say something inappropriate with a foreign leader” on a “heavily populated’ call.”
Brooks suggested that congressional lawmakers need to focus on the anonymous whistleblower who has created such devision in the country.
“And to me, we need to look long and hard at this whistleblower, and there ought to be a determination as to whether he should be fired if he violated any laws that relate to the confidentiality of communications between the president of the United States, on the one hand, and the president of the Ukraine on the other, because his doing what he did as a spy on behalf of the Democrats, has created a significant amount of friction between the United States of America, Ukraine and who knows who else,” Brooks said.
Last month, the Washington Examiner reported that the CIA whistleblower had a “professional” tie with Joe Biden.
Republicans submitted last week a list of witnesses including Hunter Biden and the whistleblowers who they wanted to hear under oath as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry. However, Democrats rejected the request, saying that other witnesses have given more information than the whistleblower’s and Hunter Biden’s testimony is “irrelevant.”
Appearing on a televised town hall on Monday, Joe Biden declared there was “zero rationale” for Republican lawmakers to have his son testify before Congress, reported the Fox News.
“There is zero rationale for that to happen,” Biden told CNN. “Nobody has suggested that anything was done that was inappropriate. This is all a diversion. This is classic Trump, classic Trump. Focus on the problems. We have a president who is one of the most corrupt people to serve in that office.”
