Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka told Newsmax TV on Friday that the whistleblower who complained about President Donald Trump’s call with the president of Ukraine is a “fake” and “the deepest of deep-state operatives.”
“This whistleblower isn’t a whistleblower,” Gorka said told “America Talks Live” Friday afternoon, dismissing the idea of they deserve whistleblower protections.
“You’re not a whistleblower if you break whistleblower law by privately, covertly colluding with the chairman of the intelligence committee when you’re a Democrat, a registered Democrat, he’s a Democrat,” he continued.
“And then you secretly get together in a cabal to cook up some fake whistleblower complaint, and you can’t be a whistleblower if you don’t see corruption. If you are hearing things second- or third-hand, then the statute doesn’t apply to you,” Gorka said. “And on top of this, the sheer fact that Facebook, that Twitter is censoring the mention of this man’s name… if you read the whistleblower statute, John, anybody can talk about this person’s identity with one exception: the inspector general to whom the whistleblower makes that complaint in the first place.”
He added that the whistleblower has multiple connections to the Obama Administration, having worked under several officials in that administration.
“He was sent to the National Security Council by John Brennan… he worked for Susan Rice, he worked expressly on Ukraine policy for [former Vice President Joe] Biden when Biden was the point-man for Obama on Ukraine, when he was extorting the Ukrainian government not to investigate his son,” Gorka said.
“This guy is the deepest of deep-state operatives and there is no statutory protection at all.”
