OMG, Is This the "Whistleblower"?
Update: A Source Says, "Nah Brah"

Unbelievable if true.

I can't believe this -- which makes it nearly plausible.

A source known to me at the State Department, who will remain anonymous, tells me that everyone is pointing to Edward "Ned" Price as the whistleblower who came forward with the accusation that President Trump "abused his office" during a phone conversation with the Ukrainian president.

Does the name "Ned" Price sound familiar? It should. Ned Price wrote an editorial in February 2017 for the Amazon Corporate Informant dramatically announcing that he could not possibly continue serving in the CIA under President Trump -- not noting that, being Ben Rhodes' #2, he would have been fired as soon as Trump got around to it.

Stu Cvrk from RedState continues:

Who is Price? According to Wikipedia:
Edward "Ned" Price (born 1982) is a Fellow at the New America Foundation and a political analyst for NBC News. Price is also a former American intelligence officer who worked at the United States Central Intelligence Agency from 2006 until February 2017. On February 20, 2017, Price published an op-ed piece in the Washington Post, outlining his decision to retire from the CIA rather than work in a Donald Trump administration.

Note that New America Foundation is one of the two top organizations liberally funded by George Soros, the other being the better-known Open Society Foundation. NA's chairman of the board of directors is Eric Schmidt who has long and deep-standing ties to Democrats - particular Obama and the Clintons.


He certainly fits the profile of what has been rumored about the whistleblower: former intelligence officer, supportive of a Trump political rival, etc. But that's not the half of it, though. Anonymous sources also report that Price was not only a CIA deep state agent but was also one of the spies that John Brennan used in the 2016 election to spy on the Trump campaign. This guy quit the CIA in an huff and is virulently anti-Trump, too. Gee, is it any surprise that this guy would magically come forward now with a complaint based on hearsay evidence?

One problem with this theory is that Price, famously (due to his own splashy info operation), does not work in the White House.

But who knows if the "whistleblower" did work in the White House when he filed his complaint -- he had no first-hand knowledge; everything is second-hand hearsay, "This guy said this thing and this gal said another thing." He does not claim to have first-hand knowledge.

And I don't know if there's any requirement that someone has to be currently in government to file a complaint with an IG -- Price would have connections. He could do it, if he wanted.

And this would explain why this guy didn't go through normal channels -- being, basically, just a George Soros stooge compiling another Steele-type "dossier," he would resort to informal, non-traditional channels for "reporting."

And, by the way, his rumor-mongering has at least one early factual error:

So is this the guy?

One big problem is that the New York Times -- if you believe the New York Times, which smart people generally don't any longer -- then the "whistleblower" had been working in the White House and now has gone back to working for the CIA.

Well, as for the first part: That could be a misleading but accurate way to describe Price before his much-publicized 2017 resignation.

The second part would be untrue... unless Price has returned to working for the CIA. Who knows, maybe doing contract work. Maybe getting himself a job in the government to get back to his old Echo Chamber tricks.

Like I said: It's so unbelievable that the Democrats and media would attempt to pass this guy off as an honest, disinterested broker that I kinda believe it.

It sure would explain why the left is so absolutely INSISTENT that this rootin'-tootin' six-gun-shootin' patriot remain anonymous, so we can't get into, say, his admitted role in the Ben Rhodes "Iran Echo Chamber" operation.

But obviously, I don't know.

Two years ago I would have said, "They would not be so brazen nor so corrupt."

But I'm not that fucking stupid any longer.

A Source says... Nah. He's pretty insistent that the name would not ring any bells with the general public, and that the person was working in the White House until recently.

My source hasn't really demonstrated why I should believe him over this State Department source claimed by Red State, but he's so insistent about this I'm inclined to believe him.
