BREAKING: Second Whistleblower Comes Forward, Has Spoken to Inspector General

Mark Zaid, an attorney representing the first whistleblower has confirmed to ABC News that he is now representing a second whistleblower claiming firsthand knowledge of the Trump-Ukraine call.

Zaid also confirmed this second whistleblower has already spoken with the intelligence community inspector general.

Andrew Bakaj, managing partner of the firm handling the case, tweeted:

I can confirm that my firm and my team represent multiple whistleblowers in connection to the underlying August 12, 2019, disclosure to the Intelligence Community Inspector General. No further comment at this time.

Mark Zaid tweeted:

Reality is identity of is irrelevant. What’s important is whether substantive allegations are verified or not. Seems more they are more focus is shifted back to WBer by partisans. That’s deliberate distraction. Don’t fall for it.

Fox News reports a second whistleblower claiming to have information regarding President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has come forward, and has already spoken to the intelligence community’s inspector general.

Attorney Mark Zaid, who represents both whistleblowers, first told ABC News that the second individual is – like the first whistleblower – an intelligence official, and has firsthand knowledge of certain allegations contained in the first whistleblower complaint, which was not based on any firsthand knowledge. Andrew Bakaj, managing partner of the firm handling the case, verified the existence of the new whistleblower Sunday morning.

Bakaj said he would not provide any further comment. Zaid did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for a statement on the matter.
