The tables appeared to turn on Tuesday when news broke that the infamous whistleblower behind impeachment was the subject of a different whistleblower complaint. The new complaint suggested the original whistleblower was soliciting and receiving illicit funds via the GoFundMe page set up to pay for legal fees. As would be expected, the same broadcast networks which gave President Trump 96 percent negative coverage, refused to touch the latest revelations about the whistleblower.

While the flagship evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC hyped the start of televised impeachment hearings, Fox News Channel’s Special Report dared to cover the possible illicit activity of the whistleblower.

The whistleblower at the center of the impeachment inquiry is now the subject of a whistleblower complaint,” reported chief White House correspondent John Roberts. “In a letter to the Intelligence Community Inspector General, Washington law firm says their client believes the whistleblower is soliciting illicit funds on the internet to pay for legal bills.

Roberts highlighted the legal argument against the whistleblower and the substantial funds he had amassed.
