More information has been uncovered that casts doubt on the veracity of the claims of the whistleblower who has come out against President Donald Trump.
Two people who worked with the whistleblower at the White House now work directly for House Intelligence Chair, Rep. Adam Schiff, The Washington Examiner reported.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff recruited two former National Security Council aides who worked alongside the CIA whistleblower at the NSC during the Obama and Trump administrations, the Washington Examiner has learned.
Abigail Grace, who worked at the NSC until 2018, was hired in February, while Sean Misko, an NSC aide until 2017, joined Schiff’s committee staff in August, the same month the whistleblower submitted his complaint.
The whistleblower was an NSC official who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and who has expertise in Ukraine, the Washington Examiner has reported.

A career CIA analyst with Ukraine expertise, the whistleblower aired his concerns about a phone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to a House Intelligence Committee aide on Schiff’s staff. He had previously informed the CIA’s legal counsel’s office.
Schiff initially denied he knew anything about the complaint before it was filed, stating on Sep. 17: “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to.”
One of the aides, Abby Grace, 36, who worked at the White House was hired on to Rep. Schiff’s staff to investigate the same White House.
In February a spokesman for Rep. Schiff said “We have hired staff for a variety of positions, including the committee’s oversight work and its investigation. Although none of our staff has come directly from the White House, we have hired people with prior experience on the National Security Council staff for oversight of the agencies, and will continue to do so at our discretion.
“If the president is worried about our hiring any former administration people, maybe he should work on being a better employer,” they said.
A source who knows what Grace did at the NSC told The Washington Post that she has a duty to not disclose information she learned in confidence.
“Abby Grace had access to executive privilege information, and she has a duty not to disclose that information. She is not authorized to reveal that information,” they said.
The news came days after it was discovered that the whistleblower also worked for former Vice President Joe Biden.
Whistleblower Has Ties To Joe Biden, Report.
It was previously reported that the whistleblower for the President Donald Trump phone call with the Ukrainian president worked with a Democrat presidential candidate.
It is now being reported by The Washington Examiner that that candidate is none other than former Vice President Joe Biden.
The 2020 Democratic candidate with whom the CIA whistleblower had a “professional” tie is Joe Biden, according to intelligence officers and former White House officials.
Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only “in the executive branch.” The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he “was detailed to the National Security Council at one point.”
Michael Atkinson, the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, told members of Congress that the whistleblower had a “professional tie” to a 2020 Democratic candidate. He had written earlier that while the whistleblower’s complaint was credible, he had shown “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate.”

“From everything we know about the whistleblower and his work in the executive branch then, there is absolutely no doubt he would have been working with Biden when he was vice president, a retired CIA official said.
“This person, after working with Biden, may feel defensive towards him because he feels [Biden] is being falsely attacked. Maybe he is even talking to Biden’s staff,” he said. “Maybe it is innocent, mayb
