CNN is working to cover its own fake news story about the whistleblower that they believe heard President Donald Trump ask the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
In a story that CNN published on the controversy on Saturday it admitted that the whistleblower did not hear anything.
“The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN,” CNN said.
“Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said,” it said.
That is a mega change from the story that the whistleblower heard the president ask for the Ukraine to investigate Biden.
For the past 48 hours CNN has pushed every conspiracy theory one could imagine about the report that they have not seen.
And Rep. Adam Schiff was in front of cameras talking about the president asking for foreign interference in the 2020 election, as he did with Russiagate.
There has not been any apology from CNN for promoting this story and for promoting more fake news against President Trump.
They suggested that the president could have held the $250 million in aid from the Ukraine if they did not investigate Biden.
They suggested that President trump directly asked for the Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election by investigating Biden.
And the whistleblower did not hear a word of it. It is a bust the same way the Russia story was a bust and no one has apologized.
The news comes after the Ukraine Foreign Minister said that President Trump did not do what the media has accused him of.
The foreign minister of the Ukraine has torpedoed them Democrat idea that President Donald Trump pressured the Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
“I know what the conversation was about and I think there was no pressure,” Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said in an interview with the Hromadske media outlet.
“There was talk, conversations are different, leaders have the right to discuss any problems that exist,” he said. Fox News reported.
“This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on many questions, sometimes requiring serious answers,” he said.
“President Trump is interested, his advisor, Giuliani, newspapers, Democrats, Republicans are interested in whether pressure had been put on Ukraine.”
“I want to say that we are an independent state, we have our own secrets,” he said in the interview published on Saturday.
