Byron York, a Washington Examiner columnist spoke to Laura Ingraham on Wednesday about how the investigators came to realize that the person driving the events of ‘Ukraine Investigation’ wasn’t the so-called whistleblower, but none other than Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.

In his new book, “Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment’s Never-Ending War on Trump“, Byron York reveals the details behind the House and Senate hearings on the Ukraine investigation.

If you remember early on in the Ukraine Investigation, the Democrats said they wanted the whistleblower to testify and then they changed their mind and they didn’t want the whistleblower to testify,” said Byron.

And they [Democrats] began to shut off any Republican attempts to find out who the whistleblower was. So the question is, if the whistleblower wasn’t in the White House, how did he learn what was going on?” continued Byron York.

“And Lieutenant Colonel Vindman was one of several people who had listened to the Trump-Zelensky phone call. But he was the only one who was disturbed by what took place. He was the only one who thought there was a problem there. So when he was interviewed by the House, remember, in those secret sessions that the Intelligence Committee. They said, well, who outside the White House did you tell about this phone call? And he said, I told two people, said, well, who are they? One of them was George Kent, who was a State Department official and who was specialized in Ukraine. Who was the other one? Well, he was in the intelligence community. And at that point, Rep. Adam Schiff and other Democrats interrupted. You cannot say, you cannot ask the other person he spoke to. And Republicans said, well, why? Why can’t we ask about that? And they said because it would tend to identify the whistleblower. So it didn’t take a real rocket scientist to figure out that the source of this, the original source of this was Lieutenant Colonel Vindman.”

Americans should brace for ‘real pain’ at the gas pump

A spike in gas prices will likely begin in March, according to Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum at GasBuddy. De Haan says all Americans may soon be facing California-esque gas prices.

Biden’s rising inflation could push gas prices for regular unleaded fuel to above $4 a gallon. “We’ll start to see gasoline demand surge, along with refiners doing maintenance ahead of the summer driving season, creating a squeeze” De Haan told Fox Business.

Earlier this month, GasBuddy projected the national average price for a gallon of gasoline could climb to a high of $4.13 in June. California cities could have average costs of over $5. Currently the nationwide average is $3.314 per gallon according to the American Automobile Association.

The highest-priced gas averages are $4.650 in California, and Texas sits at the lowest average of $2.942. Nonetheless, U.S. drivers are being warned to expect “real pain” at the pump when the spring travel surge begins.

Inflation is currently at the highest level in almost 40 years. Last week the Labor Department said the consumer price index has risen 7 percent over the last year. President Biden has called inflation “a global challenge” and attempted to claim the latest numbers are good news, point to a monthly rate of price increases around December.

After the report came out, Biden said, “Today’s report—which shows a meaningful reduction in headline inflation over last month, with gas prices and food prices falling—demonstrates that we are making progress in slowing the rate of price increases.”

“At the same time, this report underscores that we still have more work to do, with price increases still too high and squeezing family budgets” Biden did admit.

Daily Mail reports “nationwide, gas prices did drop 2.2 percent in December from the prior month, but remained 50 percent higher than a year ago. Food prices were up 0.5 percent on the month and 6.3 percent higher than a year ago, making it unclear what falling food prices Biden was referring to.”
