TRUMP IMPEACHMENT INQUIRYPublished 3 hours ago
Mark Levin slams 'rogue' CIA whistleblower, claims no first-hand source filed a complaint
By Charles Creitz | Fox News

Mark Levin blasted what he called a "rogue CIA agent's" whistleblower complaint against President Trump over his phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky.

Levin said the complaint should be taken lighter than it is, claiming Thursday on "Hannity" that no individual with first-hand knowledge of the call's contents filed the same inquiry.

"A CIA agent who is a policy guy for Ukraine can't write something like this," he said.

Levin, a constitutional law attorney by trade, claimed the complaint appeared to be written by someone with legal experience rather than a member of the intelligence community.

"I want to know who this [person] spoke to," he said. "He knew nothing... Isn't it funny -- not a single one of the people with firsthand knowledge [of the call] filed a whistleblower complaint?"

Levin then turned to the hearing on the matter chaired by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., demanding the Burbank lawmaker release his own past phone records.

"Mr. Schiff, why don't you release 90 days of your phone calls, 90 days of your texts," he said.

In addition, he called on Senate Republicans -- in a chamber where they hold the majority -- to act in a way he called similar to Schiff and Democrats like Reps. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and issue subpoenas on the matter.

"Where the **** are the Republican chairmen in the Senate -- why aren't they issuing subpoenas -- issue your 100 subpoenas, go after their bank accounts, go after their friends," he said.

"If they don't go for it, hold them in contempt."

He also demanded investigations into Sens. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Richard Durbin, D-Ill, and Robert Menendez, D-N.J. for reportedly insisting the Ukrainian government not close probes seen as critical to the Russia investigation.

"You have another one, Chris Murphy from Connecticut, who insisted the Ukrainian government not investigate Biden," he added.

At a press conference in New York on Wednesday, Trump specifically called attention to a little-discussed CNN report from May, which described how Menendez, Durbin and Leahy pushed Ukraine’s top prosecutor not to close four investigations perceived as critical to then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe -- and, by Democrats' current logic, seemingly implied that their support for U.S. aid to Ukraine was at stake.


"The Democrats have done what they're accusing me of doing," Trump said.

Senator Chris Murphy literally threatened the president of Ukraine that if he doesn't do things right, they won't have Democrat support in Congress," Trump added.

That was a reference to the Connecticut Democrat's comments at a bipartisan meeting in Kiev earlier this month, when Murphy called U.S. aid the “most important asset” of Ukraine -- then issued a warning.

Windbag Levin is a very bright man, but you would not know that based on most of what he says on TV.

Just guessing, but I'd say some people who trusted the WB engaged him in casual conversation about the call and then the WB rushed off to schiff's office where the complaint was written up all nice and neat.
The constituency of democrat politicians have to be the stupidest life form on earth.

Mark Levin is one hellsinki of a lawyer. He knows the law. He's never wrong in anything he says about the law. Levin operates on an intellectual level at which the majority of us can only imagine. I'd like to see Levin, Jay Sekulow and Alan Dershowitz represent Trump if impeachment ever gets to the Senate. Trump won't be impeached but if it ever did obtain, those three advocates would perforate, eviscerate and annihilate the House managers. The hate-filled batsards who seek to end the best Presidency since Raegan would never know what hit them...

When was the last time Levin or Derschowitz litigated anything? Is Sekulow a litigator? If they're not current, they'll be operating with rusty tools. Remember how much of a bumbler Giuliani was when he first started representing Trump? He was pathetic, but he got better after several months.

Don't need much in a republican Senate.

Levin is head of the Landmark Legal Foundation, so he has to be current. Dershowitz is retired, but it's impossible than he not be current. When you've achieved his level of expertise, you keep your certification up to date in honor of the effort it took to get to where you are. I know I would. Sekulow is head of the American Center for Law and Justice, and has argued before the Supreme Court. He's still relatively young, so he has to be current. When you're a lawyer with the history and lore of these three, you keep your license up because you owe it to the blood, sweat and tears it took to get that license in the first place.

In other words they're not litigators any more. They're busy counseling, doing talk shows, or writing books.
