Yesterday we reported on a British operative that inserted himself into President Trump’s White House in an effort to tarnish President Trump’s name and then inserted himself into the election audit work after the 2020 election in an effort to derail these audits.
Today we have more–
British operative Andrew Whitney inserted himself into President Trump’s orbit before the 2020 Election and was given the opportunity to present a solution for COVID-19 in the White House. The Washington Post wrote a hit piece on President Trump and used this as an example to support their thesis that the President was looking into crazy alternatives to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
As we noted yesterday, Whitney attempted to push an untested solution for COVID-19 in the summer of 2020. Per a hit piece in the Washington Post in August 2020, Andrew Whitney met with President Trump in the White House pushing a remedy for COVID-19 that no one previously heard of. WaPo wrote:
Trump has solicited advice on the virus from a medley of voices, with anyone gaining access to him able to bend his ear about possible treatments. The chorus includes Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham, who has paid regular visits to the Oval Office to discuss hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug that Trump promoted as a cure for the coronavirus despite scientific studies showing that the drug if used as a treatment could have deadly side effects.
The president recently hosted Andrew Whitney, a biopharmaceuticals executive on the board of a company called Phoenix, who met in the Oval Office with Trump. Whitney, who has a limited health background, pitched Trump on a botanical extract called oleandrin as a treatment for the coronavirus, according to two senior administration officials with knowledge of the discussion.
The effort didn’t ultimately hurt President Trump as many Americans looked at President Trump’s willingness to look into alternatives to address the pandemic as open-minded showing the President’s resolve to find solutions to the virus coming out of China.
Next came the election of 2020 and the election steal. At this time a group of individuals quickly gathered to address the situation. This group eventually gathered at Lin Wood’s plantation in South Carolina. We know this from a Lin Wood interview with CNBC.
Lin Wood, a conservative trial lawyer who led a failed legal challenge [actually we have no information that Wood is conservative] against the election results in Georgia, said in a lengthy interview that shortly after the 2020 contest last November, he hosted at his massive South Carolina properties fellow right-wing attorney Sidney Powell, former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn, former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, and Doug Logan, the CEO of cybersecurity firm Cyber Ninjas.
There were others present at Lin Wood’s properties during this time. One of those present was British operative Andrew Whitney.
We want to be clear here that this post is on Andrew Whitney and his actions and not on the Trump supporters at the above-mentioned meeting.
Whitney has a profile very similar to Christopher Steele in many ways. (Steele as you recall was behind the Trump-Russia collusion dossier that was used by the US government to justify their spying on President Trump.) Like Steele, Whitney is a foreign national with dubious credentials and legend.
We know that some of Whitney’s activities included participating in the pre-and post-election Republican political activity, including the January 5th briefing events. We’ve written about this previously and the document provided by Don Berlin to the Trump team that was inserted to set the President up.
Don Berlin (below) has a history of putting together ‘dossiers’ as we’ve reported previously.
Per our sources, we know that some of Whitney’s activities included participating in the pre-and post-election Republican political activity, including the January 5th briefing events, including the meeting with Berlin and the Trump team. Whitney also collaborated with top Republicans to raise money for Propter Strategies (Whitney’s company). Notable Republicans agreed to serve on his board.
The far-left Daily Beast wrote about Propter Strategies as was reported at Salon. According to the Daily Beast, partner of Propter Strategies, Kenneth Happel, became a victim of the entity’s “secretive work”.
“To this day, Propter Strategies is a black hole, despite its high-profile connections and multi-million-dollar budget,” the Beast reporters explain. “Aside from Happel’s account, there is no evidence of Propter’s activities anywhere in the public record. And that might be with good reason: Those activities included hawking the snake-oil COVID treatment oleandrin at the highest levels of the government, as the pandemic’s lethal second wave peaked across the country.”
In addition, Salon writes:
“Happel, a former Tea Party activist with an entrepreneurial history that intersects with biotechnology, recounted working on oleandrin in 2020 with Propter board member Andrew Whitney,” Sollenberger and Bredderman note. “A serial entrepreneur and former Bain Capital investor, Whitney was actually pulling oleandrin double-duty — he was on the board at the nonprofit Propter, as well as at Texas-based Phoenix Biotechnologies, whose research centered on the product.
Even more suspicious than the dark money trail that funded Whitney’s activity is that he, as the CEO of Propter Strategies, was paying Col. Phil Waldron to provide “network and social media analysis” for his political projects during this period of time. This is the same Col. Phil Waldron who claimed to have captured data going overseas after the election.
At the same time that Whitney was funding Col. Waldron, he was also exercising spy tradecraft and utilizing highly secure and secret proprietary cell phones with other political operatives in all the key swing states. The communications between these operatives show a coordinated effort to inject bogus claims and false narratives into the election fraud investigation in order to discredit all future election investigations. It is also clear from the intercepts that some of the actors in this network are actively coordinating their efforts with the Feds.
Whitney operated on multiple election-related projects and was a prime mover on several election investigation fronts. In early 2020, he was acting in the capacity of Lin Wood’s Chief of Staff and working closely and strategizing with Sydney Powell, Patrick Byrne, and General Flynn.
Whitney visited Lin Wood at his plantation and worked on multiple disinformation campaigns. One active measure was the disinformation pushed by a convicted felon who goes by the aliases “Ryan Dark White,” “Dr. John McGreevey,” and “JohnHerToHelp” as a credible whistleblower. We wrote about this individual months ago, recognizing this as disinformation.
Just like Stephan Halper and his domestic and foreign intelligence network, the British government is connected to a highly sophisticated active measure that targeted President Trump and the MAGA movement – one key component being Andrew Whitney.
