As Twitchy told you yesterday, Andrew Bakaj, one of the lawyers representing the whistleblower, just so happens to be a former staffer of both Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton. In addition to that, as the Washington Free Beacon reported, Bakaj donated to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign earlier this year:

Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump ran with the Free Beacon’s scoop:
Wow! “Ukraine Whistleblower’s lead attorney donated to Biden.” @FreeBeacon

But Jake Tapper was ready for it with a scoop of his own:
You know who else donated to Biden?
— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) September 25, 2019
Yeah … that’s not quite the “gotcha!” Tapper probably thought it was.

This is the best that you can do?

I’m not sure this makes the point you think it does, Jake.

What was his point, exactly? That Donald Trump was a lifelong Democrat until he decided he could win a presidential election as a Republican? Or that Joe Biden is happy to accept donations from the likes of Donald Trump?
I think Trump wasn't talking about 2001. Ask a journalist

Wicked burn, Jake.
But when did the lead attorney donate?

Does that mean Biden isn't Trump's political rival? https://t.co/tzJU4cF7aj

Biden took money from Trump? Seems cancel worthy these days.

Biden must be horrible! https://t.co/40enFb9ylj

Biden accepted money from an accused rapist who is also a corrupt political mogul using foreign influence to interfere in our national elections.
Has Biden returned that money? Seems like a good question to ask. https://t.co/EM6nZKaURE
