Dem group began investigating Trump-Ukraine long before Whistleblower
Months before a whistleblower complaint that would spark the Democrat effort for impeachment, a shadowy liberal group founded and staffed by Obama administration alums and former Democrat congressional staffers launched an outside investigation into whether President Trump’s allies were seeking “foreign interference” from Ukraine in the 2020 elections.
American Oversight markets itself as a “nonpartisan oversight watchdog,” a dubious claim at best considering most of its staff and senior leadership have previously worked for Democrat administrations and lawmakers, including current Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden.
According to Breitbart, “The group’s purpose is to file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits requesting official documents from the administration that could be used to bolster Democrat congressional investigations.”
Because American Oversight is organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, it is not required to disclose it's funding sources.
So here we have a bunch of Obama and Biden staffers running independent investigations with dark money and feeding it all to Democrats in Congress? Nothing to see here folks.
