100 thoughts on “Sekulow: Whistleblower complaint form used to require firsthand information

  1. I can tell you all what's going to happen:
    They are going to impeach Trump and no one will be held accountable. Not even a slap on the wrist. Mark my words.

  2. The media keeps writing about the whistleblower's attorneys fear of revealing his identity. Making it sound like the President has put a hit on the whistleblower. The leftist media keeps calling Trump, Mafia Boss.

  3. Nope. the form itself NEVER required firsthand information.

    Only the PROCESS required that the designation of CREDIBLE complaint required that the investigation be based on first-hand information.

    The complaint can come from a secondhand account. It then becomes incumbent on the IG investigators to try to find first-hand validation.

    It's how all investigations work. If you get an anonymous tip, that's allowed.

    Do you think that Linda Tripp saw Clinton getting blown by Monica? No, that was not firsthand information either.

    It speaks to the level of desperation that people are trying to discount the source TYPE when the white-house released information to the public which literally validated and proved EVERY claim made by the whistleblower.

  4. A year ago they concocted the Kavanaugh hit job and milked the Mueller probe all the way through the mid-term elections. Expect them to try something like that again as well as build up and push another nonsense crusade to distract and dissuade anyone who's on the fence with their vote. This is the calm before the storm with a progressive push all the way thru the 2020 election. Liberal media has been awfully quiet, get ready for that to change.

    They've rallied their base and learned which of their groups to team up to build momentum and create an onslaught knowing the GOP won't respond definitively. We are about to get tested and they will be relentless and vicious. They've been getting the timing down to leave no time or bad time to respond, cut people off, just watch.

  5. I been saying for years, this country is due for another civil war. It seems like every day we move closer and closer to it. Throughout the ages, during the rise and fall of every civilization, there have been multiple civil wars, this country is not even 300 years old and there’s already been one, we are due.

  6. Back in December 2018 CTH noted the significant House rule changes constructed by Nancy Pelosi for the 116th congress seemed specifically geared toward impeachment. {Go Deep} With the House going into a scheduled calendar recess, those rules are now being used to subvert historic processes and construct the articles of impeachment.

  7. It's all show boating. Ol Nance knows if she takes it to the floor for a vote. It will die. Just like all the Muller crap and the kavanagh talk. The dems are more nervous than when Lincoln took their slaves. Cant wait for Barr's report. Heads are gonna roll and the dems will lose the 2020 BIG TIME!

  8. It's sad that we have people supporting the DNC. When they showing time and time again they have no concern for a constitution. They don't care about innocent till proven guilty look at the way they treated Kavanaugh and Trump and now they have absolutely no regard for the rest of our law but you know course those law stop them from taking your first and second 4th and 5th Amendment away so those pesky laws need to go. There's a reason that hearsay is not admissible in court. Hearsay also would not be admissible in an impeachment hearing because it's not proof.

  9. The SWAMP RATS done't care about the LAW, the CONSTITUTION, or the TRUTH because they can't see past their BLIND, ALL CONSUMING RAGE against President Trump and the fact that KILLERY DIDN'T WIN. ALL THEY HAVE IS HATE, HATE AND MORE HATE !!!!!

  10. Good thing Congress issued a subpoena to Pompeo. We can hear first hand what went on in the call. Trumptards are grasping for straws. This behavior is totally inline with what the Mueller report was all about. Sorry, you're majesty, you're going down! lol… Ukraine if you're listening, I hope you can find the… Sound familiar? The good news for us Democrats, we have faith in our Government. Call us Democrats whatever you want! It's Republican's that are bringing down Treasonous Trump. The whistleblower, Republican! The people who communicated to the whistleblower, Republicans. Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Robert Mueller, Joe Scarborough are all Republicans! Can you Trumptards go fetch us some Popcorn… This is getting interesting!

  11. I CAN HERE CAN YOU HE MULLER SAID THERE WAS OBSTRUGTION OF INJUSTICE YOU HAVE TO OPEN YOUR HEARS AND NOT BE SUPER WHITE WATCH THE STOCK MARKET AS IT STEELES YOUR MONEY THIS IS WHO YOU VOTE FOR

  12. THEY LOVE COLLAGE FOOTBALL AND HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL ALL FREE YOU ARE PAYING AND THEY ARE TAKING THANK YOU FOOLS SLAVE LABOR NOW CALIFORNIA IS GOING TO PAY THESE KIDS SO THEY DONT HAVE TO DO SOMETHING STUPID WORK FOR FREE

  13. Sekulov, why dont you advise your client the President to get AG to investigate who leaked the phone conversation to whistleblower, whi is whistleblower is he part of CIA, NI,FBI , who changed the form, unless some is arrested these people will not stop, but as soon as you put one behind bars all others will run

  14. Lets talk about truth for a second. Forget, for a moment, all else and ask yourself a simple question. In the "transcript" released by Trump, did the President of the United States ask the leader of a foreign country, as a favor, to provide the President with potentially damaging information on his primary political opponent? Forget "quid por quo", whistle- blowers, "spys" and all the other complications to this issue, and answer this question for yourself. And then ask yourself, am I ok with the President of the United States behaving this way. Your answer to that question will predict how you will react to all else.

  15. This is so false. The rules never stated there had to be first hand witness.
    FALSE
    Pluse whistleblower has first hand information anyway.
    This is not true Jay. None of it.

  16. How much do you want to bet that Pelosi announced her impeachment inquiry before the whistleblower report was released, because she'd either already seen an internally leaked copy of it it, had spoken to the whistleblower, or Schiff had done so and relayed its damning contents to her.

    And of course, being willing to believe the absolute worst of Trump, they believed everything alleged, and announced without waiting for the report's release, or the release of the transcript of the call.

    And Schiff, in fine form, paraphrases the president NOT based on the transcript, but based on the whistleblower's allegations, which were NOT supported by what transpired in the call.

    You know, most of the people I know who REALLY loved the show "House of Cards" are Democrat voters/supporters. There's got to be a weird cognitive dissonance going on when they can relate to that show–which focusses on corrupt actors within the Democratic Party using dirty tactics to take down opponents–and yet cannot, or will not, entertain the idea that there might be actual corrupt actors within the actual, real life Democratic Party.

  17. Let’s turn it around on the Democrats. I heard from a friend that Joe Biden and his son are corrupt. Investigate,

  18. The thing with the whistleblower is for dems to get there hands on President Trump's transcripts of all of his meetings with foreign leaders especially Putin

  19. So when are they going to vote on this? This is ridiculous. If trump somehow gets impeached I’m taking matters into my own hands. Bring down the communists left!

  20. We should allow for a member of the intelligence community to report any reasonable belief of illegal activity. The law always has. The form was changed over the summer to correct the language.

  21. A lawyer should know that a form CAN NOT change a law. Understand, it was already LEGAL to file a report with 2nd hand info. The form was confusing and in May 2018, they already sought out to change the form-long before the president's conversation. Previous to this, other whistleblower reports filed contain second and third and information as well. Is this lawyer for real? I mean, he cant be THIS dumb, can he? Who buys this garbage???

  22. Sekulow is lying. Neither the law nor the form has ever required a whistleblower to have firsthand knowledge about the things he's reporting.

  23. You don't need direct whistleblower the law says second hand info. The date of new law was 2018. Lying low lives.
    Trump used dedicated money for Ukraine to bargain for info on the Bidens.
    READ THE TRANSCIPT IF YOU CAN!

  24. What's hilarious is that you right wing nut jobs seem totally unaware that the whistleblower actually USED THE OLD FORM to file his complaint. Any change in the new form is as IRRELEVANT as your baseless conspiracy theory.

  25. While RWNJs continue to rail about the alleged deep state conspiracy about the new whistleblower complaint form, the complaint was actually filed using the old form. The conspiracy theory is cut off at the knees despite never having legs.

  26. Per RNC chair, we need useful Idiot voters to control our own agenda, tell them what they want to hear, there not educated enough to fact check.

  27. when JESUS was crucified, he was crucified because of lies and hatred. So this has been going on for thousands of years, no different with President in our modern day time, not comparing Trump to JESUS by no means, just the corruption of then & now.

  28. Whennnnnnnn are politicians. Held responsible and liable for LYING ABOUT ANYONE!!!!!’ A normal person would be thrown in jail!!!! come on people!!!! Hold the liars accountable or go to jail!!!! Stop this bs drama!!!

  29. He is LYING. All you have to do is look it up. It's people like sekulow that keep people from seeing a difference between Christians and all other people

  30. Convenient the paperwork gets changed just before the story comes out. Hope someone looks into when and who changed it.

  31. Please tell the public how we can prove this form was changed. All the media is stating the rep. Are lying about the Deep starters changing the form thanks.

  32. Sekulow is an idiot. The Whistleblower LAW never required first-hand knowledge. If the form was changed it was because it did not follow the law. A form cannot override the law. The Inspector General released a statement to that effect. When Sekulow fails to acknowledge that, he is simply lying or showing his ignorance of the law. Some expert.

  33. The democrat party is nothing but an America and constitution hating socialist gang with only one goal, depose the President.

  34. Can trump's liers be any more stupid we all see they did hold military hardware from UKRAINE the CIA really put it out there and now the president CLOWN'S are trying to push the LAIM LIE trump needs to serious think about his lawyer how looks more like a enemy MAKING trump look like a man that is weak and brainless and has lost control over his lawyer this what it looks like

  35. Fred Freddy I wouldn’t lie about that. My parents were both Democrats til the day they died and we were brought up to believe you only vote for a Democrat. I hate to admit this but I voted for Obama his first term, that’s when I woke up as to what he was doing. Yes I walked away and will never go back unless we get some Democrats that are not brain washed and I can actually see they love this country. You can spew your hate just like they do you have a right to your opinion as I am to mine but until I see a change in the Democrat party I will never vote for another one.

  36. Everyone disgusted by this. Pay attention. You MUST be registered to vote. If you are registered as a Democrat (someone said they were "changing" to Republican. You can't just write that here. If you are 18 and older, a citizen, if you aren't registered to VOTE, you aren't helping. If you need help registering, there are many of us who can help. We have a great opportunity to take back Congress! To keep the Senate and the White House! But we must vote!

  38. Jay Sekulow listen to what U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham argued in 1999 that a crime wasn't necessary for presidential impeachment.

  39. ICIG was totally wrong, to change form allowing hearsay and innuendo, that's not allowed in a court of law. This is all part of the COUP, AS ALL ELSE HAS FAILED, SO TO MAKE IT MORE LEGAL BACK DATE THE FORM TO COMPLY WITH THE INPUT OF THE SPY. From DC SCUTTLE BUTT many knew of the input prior to announcing it. So, they leak again POTUS CALLS, THEN CLAIM A SECURITY VIOLATION OF Quid Pro Quo to begin Impeachment. This signals that Impeachment can't wait until 2020 it must be concluded all before then so their is no opportunity for POTUS to be reelected. However VP Pence is in the way, so drum up on him too for his Impeachment because we Dem's want to shoe in your choice, Hillary Warren, Pelosi, who will have our DEM backs to put America back to its state of unseen corruption. Like 2018 midterm election we will steal it again for the Whitehouse. The only way around this is to arrest all the coup actors past and present. Its time to close down former Ukraine and Russian operatives once and for all.

  40. Dem's fake and phony charges and arguments, lets show them fake and phony at the booth vote POTUS/GOP get house back under control.

  41. Dem's think they can add it up 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1= 8, no its a digital hex world and adds to AN F , their score in performance , and they have been hexed to oblivion.

  42. Recounts doom, Trump server doom, tax doom, FISA doom, finance doom, Collusion doom, Mueller doom, phone call doom, Impeachment doom, so much winning for the Democrats.

  43. Jeff, I totally believe your right, problem is there is so many politicians trying to build there own wealth. They should limit terms and should be vetted with the highest defgree then put in jail. Thx for keeping the pressure on these greedy pigs

  44. omg it says the date on the bottom of the form revised aug 2019 whoever is in charge of forms duh would be the person.

  45. this is an all out coup against the American people and the president of the us which is treason Pelosi Schiff Nadler waters al green need to be put in front of a firing squad now

  46. Who changed the wording on the WhistleBlower Form to be filled out from NO HEARSAY to HEARSAY. ?? Why are Republicans not asking this question ??

  47. Previous administration were corrupted badly and now they are trying to cover up so that they make all these impeachment BS up waist our tax money and do nothing for Americans people.

  48. Insofar as this “prosecution” could be considered a huge distraction, who is paying attention to the impetus of
    UN Agenda 21: world domination? Filter this charade from view, and be aware of what’s really going on. Dark forces are aimed at our liberty. When you’re busy fighting alligators, don’t forget you came to drain the swamp.
    Endeavor to persevere!!!

  49. The American voters voted for these A-Holes in the House and deserve to lose their Constitutional Republic!! Let them live under Socialism and Communism ! Good luck 🍀!

  50. Dems getting away with too much bs…just like the Clintons did and are still doing. Whistleblower is from the CIA, so probably Brennan coached him before turning him over the a corrupt IG…then coach Adam.

  51. August 12, 2019…….
    But was just recently updated with 4 other rule changes concerning whistleblower handling in the house rule book. The Democrats have been working under a different set of rules for months.

  52. P Pelosi Schiff's got nothing to ,offer America your takers of taxpayer money you contribute nothings so for your crimes you need lock up wasting g taxpayer money lieing to congress treason

  53. Tell them about the Aug 4, 2019 other changes made about the guidelines….. You need the read up on the changes because they didn’t just make the changes to help the DEMOCRATS. There is a rumor that they intend to find the president did something that fits into their idea of high crimes and/misdemeanors. They will then take it directly to the New York civil courts and convict him. They will challenge the indite
