The report indicates that the intent was not just to subvert President Trump's policies, which they were against from day one, but was to have President Trump ultimately removed from office.
The man suspected to be the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment of President Donald Trump over a phone call with the president of Ukraine reportedly openly discussed how to “take out” Trump not even two weeks after Trump took office, well before the call took place.
RealClearInvestigations reported Wednesday that sources overheard the CIA analyst and alleged whistleblower discussing how to remove Trump from office with fellow Obama holdover Sean Misko, who reportedly offered “guidance” to the alleged whistleblower during the impeachment process under Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (CA).
As noted by the outlet, there is “strong evidence” that the man identified in the report is the whistleblower, though he has not been officially named as such.
“Sources told RealClearInvestigations the staffer with whom [the alleged whistleblower] was speaking was Sean Misko. Both were Obama administration holdovers working in the Trump White House on foreign policy and national security issues,” RealClearInvestigations reported Wednesday. “And both expressed anger over Trump’s new ‘America First’ foreign policy, a sea change from President Obama’s approach to international affairs.”
