It took Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova to find the link inside the whistleblower report that links the most likely culprit behind the whole thing. I don’t know why we didn’t think of it sooner.
diGenova and his wife appeared on Fox News to proclaim the discovery they made which links George Soros to the whistleblower complaint.
According to Western Journal,
It was at that point that Toensing jumped in, saying, “U.S. and other people made false statements about him, yeah, that was George Soros-funded NGOs who were also in bed with the State Department. They were in bed with each other during that time, in the name of anti-corruption and it really means that Soros goes after his competitors.”
Then she dropped the bomb: “The whistleblower sprinkles throughout his document footnotes referring to a publication with the initials ‘OCCRP.’ One guess, Sean, who funds OOCRP? George Soros.”
One of the organizations funding the OCCRP (an initialism for the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project) is the Soros-founded Open Society Foundations.
DiGenova followed up, “Soros’ dirty money is all over this story from day one,” to which Toensing replied, “And all over Ukraine and he still has embedded people at the State Department.”
And it’s true, the whistleblower complaint DOES refer to the OCCRP on multiple occasions:
Footnote 4 states, “In a report published by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) on 22 July, two associates of Mr. Giuliani reportedly traveled to Kyiv in May 2019, and met with Mr. Bakanov and another close Zelenskyy adviser, Mr. Serhiy Shefir.”
Footnote 9 states, “In May, Attorney General Barr announced that he was initiating a probe into the ‘origins’ of the Russia investigation. According to the above-referenced OCCRP report (22 July), two associates of Mr. Giuliani claimed to be working with Ukrainian officials to uncover information that would become part of this inquiry. In an interview with Fox News on 8 August, Mr. Giuliani claimed that Mr. John Durham, whom Attorney General Barr designated to lead this probe, was ‘spending a lot of time in Europe’ because he was ‘investigating Ukraine.’ I do not know the extent to which, if at all, Mr. Giuliani is directly coordinating his efforts on Ukraine with Attorney General Barr or Mr. Durham.”
Footnote 10 simply refers to the OCCRP report already mentioned and an article in Bloomberg. Footnote 10 is attached to a bullet that states, “It was also publicly reported that Mr. Giuliani had met on at least two occasions with Mr. Lutsenko: once in New York in late January and again in Warsaw in mid-February. In addition, it was publicly reported that Mr. Giuliani had spoken in late 2018 to former Prosecutor General Shokin, in a Skype call arranged by two associates of Mr. Giuliani.”
