More information on the whistleblower, who sparked the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump, has been revealed from new reporting and a statement released by their attorneys.

It was first reported by the Washington Examiner the whistleblower not only is a registered Democrat, but they "had worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates." It was not known which of the Democratic candidates the whistleblower had a relationship with.

Now it is known the whistleblower has a third, but an unrevealed, potential element of bias against Trump. The New York Times reported about the bias on Wednesday, saying it was redacted in a memo Inspector General of the Intelligence Community Michael Atkinson provided to the House Intelligence Committee: 

In submitting his complaint, the whistle-blower identified three facts that could be used to accuse him of potential bias against Mr. Trump, the documents showed. Two were redacted. The third indicated that the whistle-blower is a registered Democrat, a fact first reported by CNN last week that has widely circulated since.

"The fact that the whistleblower has three political biases against the President shows just how rigged this whole impeachment process is. It’s getting ridiculous," a congressional source with direct knowledge of the matter told Townhall.

"First, it’s Adam Schiff conducting Democratic impeachment efforts behind closed doors. Next, it’s Speaker Pelosi refusing to vote on an impeachment inquiry. Now, we learn their star witness is entrenched in partisanship. Where does it end?” the source added.

The whistleblower's lawyers, Andrew Bakaj and Mark Zaid, released a statement on Wednesday in response to the Washington Examiner's report.

"First, our client has never worked for or advised a political candidate, campaign, or party. Second, our client has spent their entire government career in apolitical, civil servant positions in the Executive Branch. Third, in these positions, our client has come into contact with presidential candidates from both parties in their roles as elected officials – not as candidates. Fourth, the whistleblower voluntarily provided relevant career information to the ICIG in order to facilitate an assessment of the credibility of the complaint. Fifth, as a result, the ICIG concluded – as is well known – that the complaint was both urgent and credible."

"Finally, the whistleblower is not the story," they asserted.

The whistleblower's complaint said Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was inappropriate because Trump was "using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election."
