A pair of Trump supporters want to know the identity of the person who shared the contents of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and are willing to dole out $50,000 to get the information, the Washington Examiner reports.
Shortly after the individual, who mainstream media describes as a “whistleblower,” shared the contents of the call, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
It should be noted that, by the individual’s own admission, he or she did not personally overhear the phone call. He or she did not see the transcript and had no first-hand information on the call at the time of sharing the information to the media.
The Washington Examiner reports the individual has been described as someone who works for the CIA, but the two Trump supporters want a name.
“This individual is key to understanding exactly what happened and how we can move forward,” conservative Jack Burkman said. “We’ve put forth this reward in hopes of bringing more information to light and putting this dark chapter behind us.”
According to the report, Burkman and his colleague Jacob Wohl are controversial figures who “have a sketchy record and made headlines for past efforts to attack the Russia election claims against the president.”
The Washington Examiner also called them “right-wing smear merchants” in a prior story.
The following is what the two supporters reportedly sent to Secrets via the report:
