CNN tried to diminish it by suggesting it was just that the person was a registered Democrat or was supportive of a rival to Trump. Not that the person actually worked or was tied to another candidate as this indicates.

A new report from The Washington Examiner on Tuesday revealed that the CIA whistleblower reportedly “had a significant” connection to a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate who is challenging President Donald Trump in the election.
“In an Aug. 26 letter, the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, wrote that the anonymous whistleblower who set off the Trump-Ukraine impeachment fight showed ‘some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate,’” The Examiner’s Byron York wrote. “Now, however, there is word of more evidence of possible bias on the whistleblower’s part. Under questioning from Republicans during last Friday’s impeachment inquiry interview with Atkinson, the inspector general revealed that the whistleblower’s possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat,” York continued. “It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year’s election.”
