Rep. Steve King (R-IA) posted photos of the son of left-wing billionaire George Soros on Thursday, absurdly accusing him of being the White House whistleblower.
“Adam Schiff said, ‘I do not know the identity of the whistleblower.’ @RepAdamSchiff here are four strong clues,” posted King, along with four pictures of Soros with Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Elizabeth Warren.
Alexander Soros is not the whistleblower. He does not work at the CIA, or in government. While King deleted the tweet after this article was published, here is a screenshot.
Reps. Steve King and Paul Gosar think that Alex Soros, who does not work in government and has nothing to do with any of this, is the whistleblower? Somehow? https://t.co/sQPC5MIb8A

I don’t have confirmation of who the whistleblower is but I doubt it’s Alexander Soros. This member of Congress is putting a target on somebody without doing a basic Google check. https://t.co/TYV8s45j8i

.@SteveKingIA is circulating false information, claiming Alexander Soros, our deputy chair, is the whistleblower. He is not. Attempts to out the whistleblower violate protections put in place to help people in government root out waste, fraud, and abuse. https://t.co/QAQXTSwzEY
