Byron York, on Wednesday, spoke to Laura Ingraham of Fox News about how the investigators came to realize the so-called whistle-blower who started the Ukraine investigation that leads to now-debunked impeachment proceeding against the President of the United States, is none other than Lt Col Alexander Vindman.

York, a Washington examiner journalist, wrote in his new book, “obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment`s Never-Ending War on Trump”, Bryon reveals the intention behind the House of Representative and Senate`s hearings on the sham and now debunked Ukraine investigation.

“If you remember early on in the Ukraine Investigation, the Democrats said they wanted the whistleblower to testify and then they changed their mind and they didn’t want the whistleblower to testify,” said Byron.

“And they [Democrats] began to shut off any Republican attempts to find out who the whistleblower was. So the question is if the whistleblower wasn’t in the White House, how did he learn what was going on?” continued Byron York.

“And lt col alexander vindman was one of several people who had listened to the Trump-Zelensky phone call. But he was the only one who was disturbed by what took place. He was the only one who thought there was a problem there. So when he was interviewed by the House, remember, in those secret sessions that the Intelligence Committee. They said, well, who outside the White House did you tell about this phone call? And he said, I told two people, said, well, who are they? One of them was George Kent, who was a State Department official and who was specialized in Ukraine. Who was the other one? Well, he was in the intelligence community. And at that point, Rep. Adam Schiff and other Democrats interrupted. You cannot say, you cannot ask the other person he spoke to. And Republicans said, well, why? Why can’t we ask about that? And they said because it would tend to identify the whistleblower. So it didn’t take a real rocket scientist to figure out that the source of this, the original source of this was Lieutenant Colonel Vindman.”
